  • GetLevelSpecialValueFor() function not working properly

    I was writing a custom ability with aghanim scepter upgrade for it. Scepter supposed to lower its CD. So I use a special value to store the scepter cooldowns:

    "var_type" "FIELD_INTEGER"
    "cooldown_scepter" "90 60 30"

    and the ability's GetCooldown() function is:

    if self:GetCaster():HasScepter() then
    return self:GetLevelSpecialValueFor("cooldown_scepter", num)

    return self.BaseClass.GetCooldown(self, num)

    Then if I got scepter on this hero, console keep spewing error message about GetLevelSpecialValueFor() is a nil value and should not be called. In game the cooldown works fine -- it has 90/60/30 cooldown after ability being used. But the UI cannot display its cooldown on ability tooltip anymore.

    Looks like client don't know about "GetLevelSpecialValueFor". There should be no problem if you use "GetSpecialValueFor()" instead.

      Yeah, I get the work done anyway. But this kills the possibility of using AbilitySpecial as scepter cooldown. Really hope this get fixed.
