[Guide]: Unit Name Stacking Every Time, The First Time!

Hey guys, found out how to stack unit names almost instantly every time.

Put spaces before the words you want to stack (this offsets the text so it doesn't go into the wireframe). Copy those spaces 4 times, remove one of them and add a [<14>*] (remove the brackets).

So like this

[10SPACES]Unit Sender<12>Unit Sender<14>*[39SPACES]

Worked for me on every stack I tried. You may need to replace the * with a - or a . if it is slightly off.

Post your stacks here!

****if the name is super long you may need to put less spaces in front of the word (which also means less in the back)


EDIT!!!!

I GOT TRIPLE STACKING TO WORK!

Same concepts as above.

But..... WORD<13>WORD<12>WORD

It isn't exactly triple stacking but it works. The middle work is shifted to the right, the first word is shifted to the left and the last word ends up in the middle. Take a look at the attached image.

THANK YOU O)mg FOR FINDING OUT HOW TO STACK TEXT LIKE A PRO AGAIN!!!!

SDE, BWAPI owner, hacker.

Using spaces may not work in both Remaster and Classic. I recommend using tab and UTF-8 spacing. See https://pastebin.com/zqEc1a5M and https://imgur.com/gallery/IggCF .

Since the UTF-8 stuff, you can now add with stacking:
  • Underline (﹏, _, ﹍, ﹎)
  • Strikethrough (─)
  • Borders (︳, _,  ̄) (︴, ﹏, ﹋)
  • Backgrounds (▒, 〓)
  • letter borders/styles (〇, 〔〕, 〖〗, 〘〙, 【】, 『』, 〚〛, ⿴, ◇)

There's also another way to stack for single-line fields, and that is by using newline. You can get as many perfect stacks as you want.


This is done using right align and newline, with some controlled spacing to push it, i.e. (unit names and leaderboard)
Code
<12>
<2><e2><80><85><e2><80><85><e2><80><87>Meow<12>
<3><e2><80><85><e2><80><85><e2><80><84>Meow<12>
<4><e2><80><87><e2><80><80>Meow<12>
<6><e2><80><84><e2><80><80>Meow<12>
<7><e2><80><87><e2><80><87><e2><80><84>Meow<12>
<8><e2><80><84><e2><80><84><e2><80><87>Meow<12>
<E><e2><80><84><e2><80><84><e2><80><84>Meow<12>
<F><e2><80><85><e2><80><85><e2><80><87><e2><80><87>Meow<12>
<10><e2><80><81>Meow<12>
<11><e2><80><85><e2><80><87><e2><80><87><e2><80><84>Meow<12>
<15><e2><80><85><e2><80><87><e2><80><84><e2><80><84>Meow


In the newline method, as long as the string is the same, it will be stacked exactly on top of each other. Try it with
Code
<12>
A<12>
B<12>
C

not really worth it to me for a one off contest, I feel like the point of an Impossible map is to encourage team collaboration anyway
