MetalPyro876's guide to Making Custom Special Attacks
All formatting problems have been fixed
Ever want to give your unit a cooler attack? Ever want to give a boss something cool and powerful? Well this guide will show you how!
In this guide I will teach you how to give a unit a special attack that either activates once it is charged and your unit is fighting, or one that activates whenever you please. even though I will not tell you how to make every special attack ever made I will give you some examples and the knowledge you need to make your own. Enjoy :)

I always thought moderators had to approve of it. It's wierd they didn't get the error, or just didn't test it out.

Sigh, word documents work fine, it was the .zip file that was corrupted. I wrote my Guide to Proto(x) in word and it works fine for downloads. I cannot open .docx files. It's not recognized by adobe reader or word.

Great work MetalPyro876! This was a fantastic guide and it gave me a few ideas for special attacks. I kinda knew how to make some, but this guide opened a lot of ideas for me and will hopefully make my map(s) more interesting to play. They are really cool and add a little more fun to the game by giving units more than the bland old special attacks. This guide was truly great and explained everything so even a newb can understand it (I think). This went in detail on how they work and gave you a list of trigger packs needed. I should let you know that all of the Army Action triggers from my pack are broken and I cant fix them. So Army Is Fighting/Attacking is no good. You spelled Yeebagon wrong at the beginning, it's spelled Yeebaagooon. You also mispelled Milliseconds. These are no big deal and do not affect your rating. I like how you kept it nice and short and I could read it in about 5 - 10 minutes fully understanding it. It would be easier to follow if you bolded/italisized the names of triggers in your paragraph. I like how you color coded each section and in your trigger layout made the Conditions/Effect/Trigger name all different colors. It made it much easier to read. I also liked how you gave multiple screenshots so it's more than just a bunch of text.
I suggest you convert this file to a .PDF using DeskPDF (PDF Creator). It will allow the unfortunate XP users to real the file because it is in .DOCX which is in vista (DOC is for XP), where as PDF can be read by anyone (Any version of mac or pc) who has Adobe Reader. It will also get rid of the annoying red lines under words that aren't recognized such as Protounit. All-in-all, this is a great guide and is recomended for anyone who:
A) Can't think of cool special attacks (like me).
B) Doesn't know how to make a special attack work.
