i cant get player 8 to attack or be aggressive to player 7 another computer and us 6 players which were holding a fort kinda like helms deep. the player 8 is order to patrol a location in the fortress but ... yes they "try to patrol" but they dont attack us the defenders.

YES ALL the alliances have been set.
P7 w/ Force 1 ALLY(vice versa)
P8 - FORCE 1 & P7 Enemy.

its pissin me off.

im using hyper triggers wait(0);

3 sets of em. 60 on each set of waits. i dont know what am i doing wrong. the dumb as comp isnt attacking us. :flamer:

Have you preserved the patrol order at anywhere? Execute it only at the spawn location.

Just have multiple spawn areas, and have each spawn attack a certain point on the fortress.
for example, in helms deep, youd have 3 Different spawn locations.
Spawn A
Spawn B
Spawn C
And with those 3 spawn locations comes 3 Attack locations.
Attack A
Attack B
Attack C.

  • Player 8

  • Now, you can have wait triggers or something to lower the attack times, or change the units. But this is a simple example of it. Or you could have a massive assault when the elapsed time in the game is X seconds....




    If the Zerg player has a a base and Must Use It , Then just have several AI scripts, such as Value This Area Higher. You could also have several Mineral and Gas Spots in the base for the zerg player to have a goal to reach.
    You could also use a combination of the 2 to help the zerg player out. Just create several units burrowed and send them in periodically or something. If the Zerg player is hoarding too much and its too difficult for the players, then just have

    Trigger-

    Player 8 Brings At least 50 Zerg Zerglings at Location (Player 8's Base)
    Actions
    Order all Zerg Zerglings to Attack to (Fortress)

    I really don't know what could go wrong if you are sure to have set up the alliances correctly (not only make players enemy to P8 but also vice-versa).

    You don't need an ai script. Just make a simple spawn-patrol trigger like this:
    P8
    always
    Create 1 <unit type> at 'spawn attackers' for P8
    Order all [men] of P8 at 'spawn attackers' patrol to 'enemy base'
    preserve

    As simple as that.
    Just make sure you don't spam any alliances/orders or other actions you might have included and that P8 is not defeated (check minimap color).
    Also check all your other triggers that they don't reset the alliances or order P8's units.

    Sorry but that is silly. Use insane AI script & "AI harass".

    If they are told to constantly patrol to the location from wherever they are, they can be retarded like that, not attacking.

    Triggers would help us identify your problem.

    Could be something dumb, like forgetting to put player 8 in force 2

    Ultraviolet -- It's weird indeed, not really sure what is so special about Spellsword that causes it to react differently on Remastered, usually EUDs are the cause of things like that

    Zoan -- I haven't played in like 2 years so maybe something changed I don't know about

    Zoan -- No-Name-Needed-II
    No-Name-Needed-II shouted: Zoan No idea if anything changed.. I've made several maps that push TMOANC to the limit and they are still working.. 3 causes of it I've narrowed down are -Too many islands which some terrain on certain tilesets can create micro islands on cliff edges with basic isometric.. -Too many changes in elevation from high to mid to low ground.. -And too many tiles from certain doodads that block tank fire..
    Any clue as to why a map which would previously work fine on past patches would now suddenly not work on the current remastered patch?

    Zoan -- I'll try Butch's suggestion of running in 32-bit, maybe that will fix it?

    Oh_Man shouted: Did martiss' link not work?
    It crashes as it does when you use EUD's incorrectly - like it closes starcraft and has the error window pop up with a ticket to send to Blizzard. I know it's not EUDs though since obviously spellsword doesn't use any, so IDK what it is.
