I have made a video illustrating keeping track of your friends, in particular if you have a "special" friend or two, who you want to know when they page you, even if a lot of stuff is scrolling by quickly on the screen.

This video illustrates:


  • Using the "Highlight" feature to quickly highlight their name

  • Editing the trigger created by the above, and changing the colour

  • Playing a sound when that word appears

  • Modifying the trigger to only play the sound once a minute rather than every time they say something, which can get quite annoying

  • Using the "recall" feature to recall a conversation with your friend.


The video is available here:

The imbedded video is below (you can watch it on this page):




Or click How to highlight friends in MUSHclient to go to Vimeo to watch it there, and any related videos you might find of interest.

The trigger I used in the video is here:


<triggers>
  <trigger
   custom_colour="17"
   enabled="y"
   group="Highlighted Words"
   ignore_case="y"
   keep_evaluating="y"
   match="\bAciratha\b"
   regexp="y"
   repeat="y"
   send_to="12"
   sequence="90"
   other_text_colour="deepskyblue"
   other_back_colour="darkolivegreen"
  >
  <send>

if os.time () &gt; ((last_friend_notify or 0) + 60) then
  Sound (GetInfo (74) .. "Cartoon Timpani.wav")
end -- if

last_friend_notify = os.time ()

</send>
  </trigger>
</triggers>

As I explain in the video, you would change the name "Aciratha" to be the name of your friend, and the sound file name "Cartoon Timpani.wav" to a suitable sound file that you choose to have played when your friend's name appears.

The sound file should have the properties:


  • "Wave" file (ie. ending in .wav)
  • Audio sample size: 16 bit
  • Channels: 2
  • Audio sample rate: 22 kHz
  • Audio format: PCM


You can use programs like Audacity (which is free) to convert sound files from one format to another.
