Night of the Dead abilities were implemented as behaviors instead of instant effects apparently. Ability behaviors are used when you want to make a button for an ability disappear, which also means you have no way of seeing the cooldown.

When I added autocast, I tested fine with focus fire (effect instant) and forgot that ability behaviors with disappearing icons prevent you from ever turning off said autocast until you run out of energy and the icon comes back.

I'm terribly confused by the whole ability-behavior-effect situation, and it doesn't help that I can't quickly convert as far as I know. Do I need to recreate every ability to convert so they have proper buttons that don't disappear?

I don't really understand the situation or I might be able to help, I know what behaviors etc are I just don't get what's going on here. Are "Has Behavior" validators used to hide buttons in the command card?

When I change the ability type from CAbilBehavior to CAbilEffectInstant, it wipes everything out and starts with a new ability. I just want to change the ability from a behavior to an effect without having to redo everything about the ability.

I doubt you can do anything about that wipe effect, but it might be possible to copy paste fields from the object before the wipe to the object after the wipe
