Re: command, ";"

There's a problem with the mud I play that a lot of special exits don't actually provide a message to indicate usage, other then showing the room description for the room you've been moved to. The only unique indicator for a room change (which isn't always a room change, it could be for another reas...

command, ";"

Question: The command separator for multiple commands sent on the same line is "command1;command2" Right after someone types that, I receive a response from the mud. In that trigger, when it looks at the 'command' variable the contents of it will be 'command2'. How would I find 'command1', or the fu...

Re: Migrating from CMud and looking for design patterns

Just to followup - I don't personally find placing a wait for execution of a command to be the best idea. Especially when it starts getting complex, any time of internet slow downs / mud lag/ etc usually break this. I find it usually better to look for whether there's a unique response from the mud ...

Re: Question

I dealt with this on the mud I play by writing a trigger to replace tabs with the appropriate amount of spaces.

regex pattern:

\t

trigger body:

while selectString("\t",1) > -1 do
replace(" ")
end

Timer Script

This is an easy to use timer script that works by creating a single permanent master timer, and provides functions to create countdown timers based off that. If a function exists matching the name of a timer, it will also be called every second with (functionname, remainingtime) passed as arguments....

Re: Timer Script

Thanks - You can delete this post. I hadn't exactly looked at the code since I wrote it, and looking back at it something stood out right away that should be changed to simplify it. I'll rewrite and repost in the scripts forum.

Re: raiseEvent works with everything but tables?

I don't know if it was intentional or not, but it can be worked with using the function pair yajl.to_string / yajl.to_value

These function encode a table into a usable string, and decode the string back into a table.

Re: Timer Script

Here's a quick example using the above: timer:init() timer:set("bomb", 10) function bomb(reason) if reason == "timer" then echo("I am a " .. timer:get("bomb") .. " second bomb.\n") else echo("BOOM!\n") end end -- output -- I am a 9 second bomb. I am a 8 second bomb. I am a 7 second bomb. I am a 6 se...

Timer Script

I'd posted this in another thread. With numerous timer related questions, better to just give it it's own thread. The below script includes a couple easy to use timer related commands (and some documentation/commenting!) timer = timer or {} timer.values = timer.values or {} -- Usage: -- -- timer:ini...
