If you put really big unit IDs in Display Portrait you can display some neat things! :D

... Really, though, there is only 12 interesting ones: the mercenary biker and the flag colors that aren't red. ;o






I listed them!
Collapsable Box

And of course SCMDraft doesn't let you input the UnitID:### stuff, so you have to either use modified StarForge data files or hexedit the value in. ... gl,hf.

... Yeah.
If you want to find a portrait that you could just use by selecting a normal unit, you can look it up here. Select all in the right column, then find it in the left column to display it. Check Idle Portraits only, talking ones tend to break. If you want you can select only the third check box, but it is all garbage.

Sorry, but the hat'd take some modding. :P

Also, there are other unused portraits, except they've all been replaced by just the marine portrait.


And now we need to think of MORE triggers we can abuse by putting in really big numbers!

No, it is possible and really easy to input UnitID:### in SCMDraft, just type ID: in the trigger and the number you want after ID:
Example: Show portrait of UnitID:6541 in slot Slot #.
To place UnitID:6541, write ID:6541



None.

...or other systems.

One thing I thought of not too long ago was a half-and-half alliance system. Imagine a system that continually sets and clears a switch, and sets a player to ally/enemy when the switch is cleared/set. What would altering an alliance status twelve times per second do? =P

Another use of this is that we could easily put ID:6541 into a transmission action, couldn't we? ...then again, maybe not. Didn't you say something about faulty active animations?

In my briefing I tested setting to to talking portrait and it nothing bad happened ... Try using it in Transmission. This should work there, too. All I did was take a memory dump of the portrait indexes and take it out more than 228 units. ;o

The bad things that happen are when you use one that is listed as talking in the link I provided.

Yep.


For the record, Lethoth is correct- you can use Scmdraft to input extended IDs; you just have to do it in classic trigger mode using the method he described.

That's retarded. ;o Why does it show UnitID:## if you have to type ID:## ... Well, I guess I learned something today.

:D Now it's even easier to do this.

Hey guys,
I just discovered something yesterday. Mac users can't see Extended unit portraits, it crashes for them.
I think this is no longer useful because not everyone can play your maps

It's like EUDs...
Do all of them crash? Several of these crash Windows users, too.
