Need help

Post by sscheckles »

I just started using this client and I'm not really good with this one not sure what the patterns are and how to get things to work properly.
I wanted to make an alias that will c 'fireball' in every direction but target a specific target. The syntax is c 'fireball' <dir> <name>. Anyone shed some light on how to make a targeting method like set a target then able to cast "fb" and it will keep casting at that specific target in every direction til the cast goes off? Not sure if any of that made sense.

Thanks!

Okay so I figured out the targeting feature but when I'm having trouble trying with casting in the directions. Lets use Jaff as the target.
send("c 'fireball' North"..target) but the syntax that comes out say c 'fireball' northjaff. There is no space between the North and the target, and I am having difficulty figuring out how to seperate the direction and name

Thanks! :?:
