I play a mud called Ansalon and I need help making a mini-window that the OOC,Tells and Says can go into for easy access while im in fights and such. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated as im very new to scripting.


Im using MushClient 4.58 not sure if this matter but thought I would add it just in case.

Fiendish did a scrolling chat window for Aardwolf which you could adapt:

http://code.google.com/p/aardwolfclientpackage/source/browse/trunk/Aardwolf_Chat_Capture_mw.xml

Alternatively, look at this thread:

http://www.gammon.com.au/forum/bbshowpost.php?id=10515

In there is a plugin (Messages_Window) which lets you send coloured text from a script (eg. a trigger) and have it scroll by in a miniwindow).

The Messages_Window plugin has the disadvantage that it doesn't scroll back, but for just keeping an eye on chats that could be adequate.

Fiendish's window however has scroll bars I think.

I cant seem to get either of these to work for me as I said im really new to this whole scripting thing it took me 3 weeks to get your inventory window up and running. Would it be possible for you to post the working file for that fiendish one so I can just download the whole thing and paste it into my plugin folder?

Well, to save creating a character on Ansalon can you at least paste a few lines of the sort of chatter you want captured?

You say 'testing testing 123'
You tell Emilio 'testing testing 123'
You OOC 'testing testing 123'

These are the types of chatter Say,Tell and OOC.
Im wanting them to pop up in a miniwindow because while im playing the text sometimes flys by so fast I cant see when someone is trying to communicate.

OK well I adapated Fiendish's plugin to make it work with non-Aardwolf MUDs.

Template:saveplugin=Chat_Capture_Miniwindow To save and install the Chat_Capture_Miniwindow plugin do this:
  1. Copy between the lines below (to the Clipboard)
  2. Open a text editor (such as Notepad) and paste the plugin into it
  3. Save to disk on your PC, preferably in your plugins directory, as Chat_Capture_Miniwindow.xml
  4. Go to the MUSHclient File menu -> Plugins
  5. Click "Add"
  6. Choose the file Chat_Capture_Miniwindow.xml (which you just saved in step 3) as a plugin
  7. Click "Close"

You may need to adapt or add to the triggers (lines in bold) to make it match your particular MUD. It should work on the test lines Leonhardt posted.

[EDIT] Modified to version 2 to clean up the code a bit.

Version 2.2 - modified to require version 4.52 of MUSHclient.

Version 2.3 - modified to add "chats show" and "chats hide" aliases.

Version 2.4 - modified to show background colours as well in chat window, and have timestamp in white on black.

This is what the window looks like:



You can:


  • Move it by dragging the title bar

  • Resize it

  • RH-click to bring up a menu of options

  • LH-click to copy one line of chat to the clipboard

It looks like a caveat with this version is that if you use the copy functions you won't be getting color codes. Yes? Also, I don't see anything in bold. Maybe it's my browser, though.

Oops, I improved it again, and left out the bold codes. Put back now.

Yes, the colour codes were Aardwolf-specific, so this version just copies the text.

Fiendish, in your version you were prepending the plugin ID to the variables. Why do that? The variables are local to the plugin anyway, that just seems to make it wordier than it has to be.

Also I cleaned up some of the WindowXXX operations to put in the new symbolic constants, rather than 2 for "fill rectangle" and so on.

Because I'd been away from writing plugins for too long and forgot details like that. :)
In one of the next versions I'll probably undo that particular change.

That's because Nick made your version of MUSHclient obsolete by replacing some numbers with some newfangled keywords that I've never heard of. Try getting the latest MUSHclient installer. :)

The remembering of window positions shouldn't do that, but since it has ...


  • Close the world so the plugin is not in use.

  • Look in your worlds/plugins/state folder for a file with "565dae21eb816a2fdb8d50f9" in the name.

    In my case the file was "3bcfeeb548c77aa15ae19061-565dae21eb816a2fdb8d50f9-state.xml" but yours will have a different front part, as that is the world "id".

  • You can just simply delete the file, to go back to default positions, or remove the lines which specify the "windowx" and "windowy" positions (in my case they are 883 and 680) and then save the file.

  • Start MUSHclient again and the chats should be back to default positions.

That's because Nick made your version of MUSHclient obsolete by replacing some numbers with some newfangled keywords that I've never heard of. Try getting the latest MUSHclient installer. :)


Strangely, you required 4.51, whereas I added that stuff in 4.52. Missed by one version!

I've updated the plugin to require 4.52.

Also, I think the problem with positioning might have been that you asked for absolute window positions in the movewindow.install line, which I don't think is really wanted, because absolute positions really only apply once they have dragged the window from its default position. I changed that bit.
