Conditions unit/weapon/target killed

Post by Velensk »

In the final senario for my campin, I need a certain unit to kill a certain enemy with a certain attack. The problem is that I can't attach a filter for the weapon to a "die" event, and I don't know if I can attach a "target dies" condition to an attack ends event. If this is possible then I'd like to know the reckomended way of going about it, if it is not then I'll figure out a way to get around it storywise.

Why wouldn't [special_filter] work?

Check the hitpoints of the unit in there?

In the description for the filter special tag, it listed the types of events it would work for, and die was not one of them. I have not actualy tried it, but I assumed if they did not list it, it would not work.

Just do an attack_end event with filter_second checking if its hp are 0 or lower.
