Hello!

after playing 20 some odd years or so i figured i need to fix some tiggers/variables :)

i have watched and read alot of nicks videos and post but i have some slight issues. ps. i loved the videos

first: i got statusbar to work with targeting etc. but is it possible to use it as a infobar where u can have more then 1 active info at the time? atm i have target shown and after i do some other stuff i get my warnings to go ontop of that so i dont see target anymore? maybe there is a shiftleft shiftright or something? Target: X <- is shown, but when my armourplate repell refresh i have it on same setstatus so it just overwrites the Target until i retarget (still there but just not shown)

2nd im trying to get a consider alias working that consider and save the consider for the day on unique monster id but clear each reboot, in that problem the consider we get looks diffrent amount of adjectives like this:

Weloq is invulnerable to coldness.
Weloq is invulnerable to flames.
Weloq is thoroughly resistant to psionic attacks.
Weloq is invulnerable to suffocation.
Weloq is invulnerable to materia.
Weloq is invulnerable to alkali.
Weloq is thoroughly resistant to blight.
Weloq is vitally resistant to noise.
Weloq is thoroughly resistant to arcane energies.
Weloq is invulnerable to electricity.

and the wanted output i would love is to send it with say first.

Weloq resists:
XXXXXXXXXX Cold
XXXXXXXXXX Fire
XXXXXXXXX. Psio
XXXXXXXXXX Asph
XXXXXXXXXX Phys
XXXXXXXXX. Pois
XXXXXXXX.. Soni
XXXXXXXXX. Magi
XXXXXXXXXX Elec

slightly|somewhat|significantly|greatly|excessively|vastly|vitally|thoroughly|invulnerable
is the resist lists 1-10

and a full resist looks like:
You have finished considering Weloq.
You have a moderate disadvantage in hitpoints compared to Weloq.
You feel how this Weloq has affinity to elemental air.
You consider yourself to have superior protection compared to Weloq.
You judge yourself to have adequate physical qualities compared to Weloq.
You have useful brawn compared to Weloq.
You have basic physical prowess compared to Weloq.
You have moderate constitution compared to Weloq.
Slaying Weloq would decrease your reputation in The Fellowship of Rangers.
You think that Weloq is so strong you can't even compare it to Rixxan, leader of the Brotherhood.
You believe that Weloq is exceptionally mighty in overall power.

Weloq is invulnerable to coldness.
Weloq is invulnerable to flames.
Weloq is vitally resistant to psionic attacks.
Weloq is thoroughly resistant to suffocation.
Weloq is thoroughly resistant to materia.
Weloq is invulnerable to alkali.
Weloq is invulnerable to blight.
Weloq is thoroughly resistant to noise.
Weloq is invulnerable to arcane energies.
Weloq is invulnerable to electricity.

pasted that too, cause sometimes ppl paste resists on channel and dont want it to pick up and spam that too, but i would love the saved consider so I can spam it more then once if needed and even better if can choose if to spam on say or party say or other channels.

best regards //manners

Only manually. The statusbar is just a simple text field that anything can write to. If you want multiple messages to show at the same time, you need to cobble together substrings before sending the message to status.

For instance, if you want to add a new message to the status area that only occupies character locations 31 through 50 without affecting the rest of the status text, you'd need to do something like...


current_status_text = GetInfo(53)
new_message = "this is the new message"
new_message_to_fill_20_spaces = string.format("%-20s", new_message:sub(1,20))
first_part_of_current_status_to_fill_30_spaces = string.format("%-30s", current_status_text:sub(1,30))
SetStatus(first_part_of_current_status_to_fill_30_spaces .. new_message_to_fill_20_spaces .. current_status_text:sub(51))


Note that since I've only allocated 20 spaces for the new message, it gets truncated to just "this is the new mess".

nice ill check that after some sleep, but first ill stick me head out and look dumb to show what i first tried with consider alias.

i made trigger for each type like this:

* is * * to electricity.
con_id = "%1"
cons_elec = "%2"

then i made an alias with 10 lines of each type like this:

Send say (con_id) is (cons_elec) to electricity.

strange this is i get it to /print con_id and cons_elec
but cant pick up the variable to send say

tried to also to add con_ex cause i cant figure out how to get the wildcards right, also tried to add all this into variables but seems its not right way to go since all made to scriped and not to varirables.

Won't work because Send needs a string.
Look at the examples on https://www.mushclient.com/scripts/doc.php?function=Send

What if you try

Send("say ("..con_id..") is ("..cons_asph..") to suffocation")

also just figured another problem, if i consider target "weloq" and it saves him on con_id and all the resists on cons_type
next monster i consider will save on its right cons_id but all the cons_type will oversave on that variable.. hmm

i think im attacking this the wrong way.

Then try using a table for your storage.

my_storage = {}


Then in each trigger put

con_id = "%1"
cons_fire = "%2"
my_storage[con_id] = my_storage[con_id] or {}
my_storage[con_id]["fire"] = cons_fire

And so on.

Also your trigger patterns should not use "* *". Only put one asterisk there because "invulnerable" is only one word, not two.

now i got:

Run-time error
World: icesus
Immediate execution
[string "Trigger: "]:3: attempt to index global 'my_storage' (a nil value)
stack traceback:
[string "Trigger: "]:3: in main chunk


but when i print (con_id) or (cons_type) i see it capture it atleast.

You need to either have somewhere outside of your triggers

my_storage = {}


Or you could start each of your triggers with

my_storage = my_storage or {}


You can't look inside of a table that doesn't exist, so you have to make it exist.

ok that did it with the trigger, but alias still gives:

Run-time error
World: icesus
Immediate execution
[string "Alias: "]:1: attempt to call global 'Send' (a string value)
stack traceback:
[string "Alias: "]:1: in main chunk




also if i /print (my_storage) it shows table: 05A81128

maybe thats of any help


now i edit next stupid thing: my alias was just eqcon, but shouldnt it be like eqcon * or eqcon [cons_id] or something? since the whole point i want to store up the lastest consider and can spam it out when needed without taking new consider.

You have two problems, one I can see and one I can't see.

The one I can see is that if you're using tables for storage in your triggers, you need to also use the same table entries in your alias.
my_storage[con_id]["acid"] = cons_acid

is not compatible with
Send("say ("..con_id..") is ("..cons_acid..") to alkali.")


You want to be looking at my_storage[con_id]["acid"] not at cons_acid there.

The one I can't see is that the only possible cause for
Quote:
attempt to call global 'Send' (a string value)

is if you have replaced the Send function with a string.

You should definitely put this all into a plugin so that you're not affected by anything else in your global script file.
