My SCM Draft corruption issues were magically solved when I "Save As..." instead of "Save."

Now, copy the WHOLE trigger 2-3 times.  And that's what a hyper trigger is.

Are you getting the "Something bad happened" error?  If you are, you can save the map right after that message comes up, then close it.  When you open it, you'll start off where you saved it after it crashed.

Oh yeah, make sure you have this version of SCMDraft. http://www.stormcoast-fortress.net/temp/Scmdraft2-setup.rar

I finally actually beat mission 5.  After my initial draft, my frequent impression was, "Wow, this is really hard."  So, somewhat begrudgingly, I ended up having to nerf the computer (almost by 1/6th), and boost your allies (by a square).

After these changes, I ended up finally beating the map (took me an 1 hour, 15 minutes real time, and loading saved games over 15 times), but I consistently had the impression I was actually having fun. 

Maybe after the contest I will release a "original style" of the mission for the super melee pros out there.  But I think most people will find the current version much more fun.

Mission 5 is also almost totally done, I just need to fix one more trigger and maybe tweak the briefing some more.  Maybe a video of some clips from my winning run will be upcoming.

Ability Demonstration

Fight with Kirin

New trailer.  I know it says story trailer, but I really tried to make sure that not too much of the story is revealed.  After the story stuff there's a brief montage of gameplay from my more recently completed missions.

Briefing needs music!  The scourge sounds should be played a lot closer together, too.  For the dialogue, I think you're making the Protoss sound too human.  Protoss usually talk very formally, but in this video, they're talking very sarcastically, which is something that they do not do.  Controlling that one Zealot hero looks fun, though.  I look forward to using those spells! :D

I still cant get your vid to play here so I just watched it on YouTube. It looks great, but I agree that your breifing needs music. All those abilities are awesome... At that part where Kane was saying he wanted to go to the lights, would those funny lights have killed him? looks like it. This is so cool.
And that ability that killed the cerebrate... :o

Favorite funniest parts:
1. Gwaaaaa!
2. Warning! Unit unplacable! (spell effect)
3. Coming soon to a computer near you

I expect to lose all the levels, but what the heck I'll play anyways.

How will you detect if the player saved the game or not?

One trailer for the entire project, set to the main theme.

This is what happens when I mess up one line of triggering...

These rines really need an emp:

Hurray spell systems.  Look, sometimes I actually comment my triggers.  What is the world coming to?

You can't set the energy of hallucinated units.  Same goes for Broodlings.

You should use filefront.  I don't like waiting. :(
