[Solved]Ability killing allies and enemy's

Postby Slayer4000X2008 » Sun Mar 14, 2010 10:54 pm

I have been trying to get a shockwave based ability to be able to kill both allies and enemy's but I have not yet been able to.
Can anybody help.

P.S. If you want to know why I need this, I need it because my secret hero's ult kills everything it hits in a single shot allies and enemy's. Don't ask how to get the secret hero because I won't tell.

under the spell there should be an option that changes what type of stuff the attack damages (buildings, flying creeps, heroes, spell immune, invulnerable, oh and allies to name a few)
Dont have wc3 on this device so cant tell you where exactly.

If changing options in the Object Editor doesn't work, despite there being no reason as to why they shouldn't, then it's likely that the setting is hard-coded into the game, and cannot be modified.

If that's the case, using a different spell (Carrion Swarm, The Breath Spells?), or triggering the spell would be viable alternatives.

Trigger the spell, make a shockwave dummy ability for the effect and make it deal damage to every unit within an angle and distance of the hero.

I have been getting lots of help from the helper.net (nobody been able to solve the problem yet). SO use that link and see if you can make it work. All you will find in the map is the secret hero and his ability with a few units placed that the ability most kill.

EDIT: Solved

I doubt this is the problem, but it's worth checking ALL the boxes you have checked for valid targets for the spell. Sometimes some of the options can mess with the other ones (obvious example being if you check something like targets heroes as well as something that targets non-heroes - at least I THINK that was it - it can't hurt either).

Ok first, I already said this was solved so you didn't need to say that. Second, "targets allowed" is only for what you can click on not what you damage.

Sorry, you're right - I guess I didn't read that very carefully. I only brought it up because an issue similar to what I mentioned came up shortly before I posted that, so I guess I was thinking of that.
