External Scripts

Ok, so when i used MUSH i had all of my scripts in a folder, and set my working directory to that folder so that I could

require "file"

and it would load that script.

Now I'm on mudlet with linux... any tips on replicating this?

Re: Failed import of system.

ok, i cheated!

Took the latest auto-save of the package, left in the host information, then copy/pasted all the other information from my backup, and it loaded properly!

Mudlet must not like to load from genericpackage?

Re: Failed import of system.

Ok, I also tried taking that file and dropping into the profiles folder under .config/mudlet then manually loading that entry... no luck.

Failed import of system.

Ok, so I had to reinstall my OS to fix a problem with crashing. Before I wiped my machine I exported my entire system using "save as" and dropped it onto a flash drive. I get kubuntu up and working, install mudlet 1.1.0 with no problems, and proceed to import my system... to no avail. Basically, I c...

Re: Defending Triggers in Midkemia Online

Also, just for a bit of variety, I'd use this for your first trigger:

^[A-Z][a-z]+ strikes out at you powerfully\.$

I'm a bit of a perfectionist, and this will make sure that the line uses a capitalized player name. I do this uniformly through my custom system to match player names.

Re: Defending Triggers in Midkemia Online

I'd use ((?:\w+) )+ to capture the group rather than the individual word. Although, ([a-zA-Z ]+) would also work, so it's a matter of taste. Edit: Vadi's way would certainly capture the group, by the way. It would just also capture each word within the group, which is inefficient. It also has a side...

Re: Feature Request: Client-side MXP coloring

Ah, the bug would explain why I couldn't get any output (confirmed by running your code verbatim with a failure on appendBuffer()).

Any idea when the pre2 comes out?

Re: Feature Request: Client-side MXP coloring

Cool, this might work, but I'm having a bit of trouble getting it actually print to screen.

Think you could give me a quick example to create, print to and display a named buffer?

Also, perhaps, to append that buffer into a string if possible?

Re: Feature Request: Client-side MXP coloring

To be a bit more specific, here's an idea of one of the things I'd like to do: Midkemia uses a breakdown of gold. 100 copper to a silver, 100 silver to a gold. I like to take in a copper number and output a colorized [gold.][silver.]copper string. This is fine if I just want to print it to the scree...

Feature Request: Client-side MXP coloring

I would really like a method of compiling a string that includes color codes, to be output at one time (rather than changing the color previous to each echo command). I do a lot of MUD UI tweaking, and i have several situations where I would like to be able to use functions to return partial string ...
