Re: Help with non-boolean values

You can access the matches table from everywhere, since it's a global variable, so that's not a problem (although I personally would write it with matches[2] as an argument too as DevArrah mentioned).

The only syntactical problem is indeed the use of = instead of ==.

Re: Expand Variable inside of Temp Trigger

your tempTrigger concatenates the echo and testvar1 to the following string: [[echo(FIRED)]], which it then executes as code. Since in that string FIRED has no quotes around it, Mudlet thinks it is a variable name, but since it isn't, it actually does echo(nil). What you thus want is: testvar1 = "FI...

Re: problem with temptriggers and excluding

If it was a syntax error, it would show up in your error view. Does it? Anyways, the problem here is this: matches[1] is not the whole line your temp trigger matches on, but simply the part matched by the trigger pattern, in this case: target. So the string.match() you have there would only actually...

Re: achaea gmcp time

Thanks for the maths! It's in my mind to track that as well :) The 2.8 seconds per Achaean minute are a somewhat rough approximate value, mind you. I'm not quite sure how many real life minutes an actual Achaean day is, and it also doesn't seem to be exactly the same all the time. I just found expe...

Re: achaea gmcp time

I go through a lot of trouble for rather irrelevant things. I mainly use it for my GUI, which displays the current Achaean time with some sun and moon images that move in real time. There's no deep practical purpose behind it, other than having an immediate, nice-looking reference that can help with...

Re: achaea gmcp time

I wish there was, but alas, no. I do it with a whole bunch of triggers, and extrapolating with a timer that adds an "Achaean minute" to my count every 2.8 real seconds. So basically, I have an "Achaean clock" that counts from 0 (midnight) to 1440 (24*60, next midnight) and I use triggers to calibrat...

Re: Problem with matches[2]

The problem was that the matches table gets overwritten any time a trigger or alias fires. Usually that doesn't happen in the middle of a running script, but it will if you explicitly fire an alias or trigger with expandAlias or feedTriggers. So your matches[2], which originally contained the name o...

Re: Affliction-cure tables?

My own cure lookup table for Achaea looks somewhat like this: paracelsus.affliction_cures = { aeon = {{"smoke", "elm"}, {"tree"}}, ablaze = {{"apply", "mending"}, {"tree"}}, addiction = {{"eat", "ginseng"}, {"tree"}}, agoraphobia = {{"eat", "lobelia"}, {"focus"}, {"tree"}}, anorexia = {{"apply", "ep...
