Re: Trigger Chain over 1 or 2 lines

Try this, all as one big trigger:
perl regex: you point at (.+) and
substring: ring
substring: glows
perl regex: (\w+)\.
[X] AND / Multi-line delta | value: 1

It should capture the name of the target in multimatches[1][2] and the color the ring glowed in multimatches[4][2].

Re: Problem when make a database for equipment

So while I agree that it would be ideal to make databases work properly when using non-Latin characters for, if I'm understanding this correctly, the name of the database and its various field names, it should be possible to work around the language barrier for day to day use by creating a table wit...

Re: Generic Mapping Script

There is definitely a system in place to allow for normal special exits, which go from one fixed room to another. But since this is dynamic in terms of where it sends you, it would be a bit more complicated. I'd say you have two main options. The first is to just rely on the script's built in locati...

Re: Potential color handling bug in Mudlet?

So that rule and regex helps the case where someone has written a naked ampersand in the form of "You are standing at the intersection of Church St & University Road" but not in the case "You flick on the TV and see the closing credits to the Tom&Jerry show". It also doe...

Re: Potential color handling bug in Mudlet?

So, from what I can find about MXP [https://www.zuggsoft.com/zmud/mxp.htm], it is modeled after XML, which has the following rules regarding entity usage: Rules for using legal Entity Markup The entity must be declared in the DTD. If you are using an XML document which is not validated against a DTD...

Re: Potential color handling bug in Mudlet?

I'd think that even if Mudlet isn't going to discard malformed MXP, it should at the very least report an error. That way, if this comes up for someone else, at least they will know what the problem is, and can inform the admins on their game.

Re: Please help, auto banking script/package

Okay, so let me try to break this down into discrete elements, and you can provide correction if necessary. These are the tasks any script/package would need to perform, as I understand it. 1) Detection of key events: gold carried by character, gold deposited in bank, arrival at city port. 2) Moveme...

Re: Wait and Wait Line

So, if I'm reading things correctly, this should be the same script I wrote above, but changed to use the wait functionality. Probably a bit more intuitive for someone not used to recursion. perform = perform or {} local performance = performance or {} perform.run = function(time, rand, song) time =...

Re: Wait and Wait Line

So, while something like a wait function is convenient, it isn't overly complicated to do the same thing with the tools already available. For instance, I put together a very simple little script to manage that performance you mention. It just needs a couple of simple aliases thrown together to inte...

Re: Button with proggramed actions

Using timers, i.e. waiting, is 100% the wrong way to go about this, and will create far too much work to get it going via that method, that will have to all be undone to switch over do making it trigger driven, which is how it will have to be done if it is supposed to be smart at all. While I didn't...
