Re: line = getCurrentLine() doesn't update line variable globally - does wiki just mean line variable is locally updated

What's really weird, is that if I do a feedTriggers([["]]), triggers below the selectString([["]]); replace([["]]); line=getCurrentLine() do match properly the replaced character (this replaces " with a single quote), but lines that arrive from the server do not, and still use the orig...

line = getCurrentLine() doesn't update line variable globally - does wiki just mean line variable is locally updated?

In short: I want to replace text and have triggers that match after the first one match on the replaced text instead of the original. Wiki seems to indicate after running 'replace(text)' that doing 'line = getCurrentLine()' should update line for subsequent triggers to the replaced line text, but th...

Re: modifying mudlet.cpp to add and expose a function to lua

Well, lots of possible hangups and probably not worth researching. I compiled the 2.0 final, not 2.1 or your 2.0+ branch, and I'm using the old recipe for Windows' libs and QT and minGW versions. Everything else seemed to work fine for my compile before I made any changes to the source; all my scrip...

Re: modifying mudlet.cpp to add and expose a function to lua

Nice. Thank you. Actually, I just finally managed to get mine to stop crashing. I had to check to see if the object was actually playing first, before calling clear(). Seems to work okay for me now; dunno why calling stop() or clear() on a non-playing object would cause it to crash for me and not fo...

modifying mudlet.cpp to add and expose a function to lua

So, just wanted to make a simple change to the source to add the ability to silence playing sounds. However, the method crashes mudlet. I added a method to mudlet.cpp and then modified TLuaInterpreter.cpp to add an intermediary method (what I assumed needed to happen to make the method available to ...

Re: copy()/appendBuffer()

Note that when you use functions like selectLine(), it actually moves the mouse cursor and selects the line, so if you're doing anything else with selecting text in between it can get messed up. Also, when you delete lines it deletes the line the cursor is currently on, though I believe you can spec...

Re: AutoQuester

I had a similar parsing problem. The trick is to match the first line ("You still need to find the following:"), change the fire-length to something reasonable (the maximum number of things you might still need to find), then make two sub-triggers. Thus, the sub-triggers will fire for each subsequen...

Re: Color Changing Gauges

You do probably want labels, instead. If you only have one ore two labels you could probably simplify this a lot and just list them each seperately. The functions you'd want to call are createLabel() to create the label, resizeWindow() to set the size of the label, moveWindow() to set the position o...

Re: Recipe to compile Mudlet on Windows

EDIT: I got it working! I had 2.0-test4 compiling successfully before using the original post's compile instructions (plus obviously the changes made to src.pro since then), but I see on 6/24/2012 there was a change from luazip to quazip made by chris. The src.pro from that point actually points to:...

I just run Ubuntu in VirtualBox, and connect to my VPN via Ubuntu, and run Mudlet in Ubuntu.
