Help with aliases to allow targeting me or ally?

Post by MechaGodJovi »

I'm quite unsure how to do this and after reading the manual over and over and searching the forums but I'm just confused.

So the aliases are simple and I understand how to to do but as example for the spell haste I have:

^hh$
c 'haste'

Obviously It works and it targets me but can someone explain to me like I'm 5 on how to also have it cast haste on someone else regardless of the targets name yet still cast haste on me when I don't input a target? Thanks.

If you use the pattern

^hh( \w+)?$

Then it will match on either hh by itself, or hh followed by a word. Then remove anything you might have in the 'command' line, and instead use the script box at the bottom, with something like this
Code: [show] | [select all] lua
local target = matches[2] or ""
send("c 'haste'" .. target)
First line sets the local variable target to the word you used, if there is one. Otherwise if you didn't use a word, it just sets it to the empty string.
Second line uses send to send the command "c 'haste'" if there's no target, or "c 'haste' bob" if you passed in bob.
