Let me start off saying this is the first thing iv tryed scripting in a long time.. What im trying to do is get a trigger to send a tell to myself that then triggers a midi file to play but only when the music is off so it dosent restart the file every time I walk though the room.
Im trying to do it this way so that i can use midi files instead of .wav files.

Iv got this script set on a trigger that goes off whenever I enter a main room.

if mainmusic == off then
Send "tell vessarr playingmainmusic"


It goes off every time even though the variable mainmusic is set to on the tell that gets sent to start the music also sets mainmusic to on. Its like its running the Send line sepretly from the if/then.

How is "mainmusic" changed?

This looks wrong on a number of fronts. Perhaps:

 if mainmusic == "off" then


 if GetVariable ("mainmusic") == "off" then

See this video about the difference between MUSHclient variables and script variables:

i wish i could watch videos... my internet connection maxs out at 12kbs on a 56k modem.. hence why im playing muds lol

it switchs mainmusic from off to on which makes the if then untrue so that if i enter the room it wont send the tell again.

of corse thats all not an issue anymore as your getvariable suggestion got everything working smoothly and as it should be! so thank you very much
