Re: Best way to copy entire profile & settings to different machine

You might - especially if you are on Windows or MacOS - need to switch your password storage from "secure" to "portable" so that the MUD Server password for each profile (if there is one set) are migrated out of the OS's own secure storage system to the profiles' directories - ot...

Re: Generic Mapping Script

Well there are Lua functions that will retrieve the existing room name and allow you to change it to something else. See:

Re: Dev seeks elementary advice on generic mapper

Also as a hand-editing tool we have recently added a (complete) JSON map exporter/importer to the Mudlet core functionality - it is certainly already present in the latest release version 4.11.2 so you can use it to hand edit a map if you need to... (The XML importer by comparison is limited and the...

Re: How to use Lua scripts in addSpecialExit()

So it looks like support for "script: " is not actually built-in to mudlet itself but is down to the mapper script to process it. Yep - it is a deceptive tool-tip which actually only ties up with the external generic mapper - you can put anything as the special exit name/command (unfortun...

Re: Unexpected output from getAreaRooms()

Technically the output: lua getAreaRooms(7) { 67, 64, 65, 63, [0] = 66 } is actually: lua getAreaRooms(7) { [1] = 67, [2] = 64, [3] = 65, [4] = 63, [0] = 66 } The table printing code assumes that when the indexes are monotonically incrementing from 1 it is a Lua list/indexed table and suppresses the...

Re: Mudlet Control Across Different Profile

You can also pass the profile name with the event so you can tell which event the profile came from. Actually the raiseGlobalEvent(...) does that automagically - it always appends the sending profile name to the end of the list of arguments that the user (script/package-writer) gives to the functio...

Re: Special exits as normal exits

TinTin++ does this as well - normal and special exits are handled quite similarly - it is just that the name i.e. "e" is directly mapped to the "e" command inherently - but it can be changed there (you can get really confused if you swap the commands with the one for the opposite...
