How, how, how... From Family guy, couldn't resist...

But seriously, how do you make an enemy comp turn rescuable? I know blizzard did it, look at the BW campaign map "Patriot's Blood" to understand what I am talking about. The comp is an enemy, turned rescuable. There is no simple trigger for the action, and even if the rescuable is set to enemy, it wont attack you, and if you dont attack it, you still rescue it! I know you can simply trigger to "give units to player" but I want it to rescue so the units maintain their original color... am I picky or what ;-)

The only problem is that you cannot turn the computer back.

UNLESS, you make a rescuable player and enemy player and you give units.

I think that the AI *only* affects existing units, not new units created.
You could use the move location action to replace each of the units of the player with a new one owned by a neutral player, then give them back to the computer player. Of course, that would be take some time...

just make a computer player and a rescuable player the same color, then when you need the unit to be rescued you just use a give unit trigger to the rescuable player, that is unless you need all 8 players.

or u can make it so a location follows the rescueable units and when u enter the location u get them?

I just did a test, and no Clokr_, created units for that player are also rescuable, so there is no way of reversing it.

Alright, I probably was mixing it with dead players, whose new units still do attack... ;-)

basically any mod has that power at least indirectly by rewarding a post. Anyone with SQL access can obviously do whatever. Not sure if an explicit "give this member x minerals"-button exists.
