Problem with health trigger

I am playing Realms of Despair and trying to create some triggers. It appears to me that some text lines can't be triggered?

As an example: I continously receive a text line indicating my status from the mud. It looks like this: <77/77hp 126/126m 240/240mv 106/170wt Time: day>

However, even when I use the following trigger it doesn't react:

match="&lt;77/77hp 126/126m 240/240mv 106/170wt Time: day&gt;"

(of course I made sure the status line was still the same)

Is MUSHClient ignoring parts of the text? I hope someone knows what the problem is.

The problem isn't so muh that MC is ignoring the text as it is that triggers won't process on a partial line. Most prompts, no matter how complex, don't end with a newline so the parse engine won't do anything with them as a trigger - it is possible however to use a script for this via OnPartialLine (I think thats the right syntax) calls. You'll need the most recent version of MC to guarantee the function is available and I know there are examples of doing this available via the forum search function.

Thanks for your answer! I got the trigger to work by ticking the 'regular expression' box.

Edit: but indeed it does not activate on the last prompt. I think you meant the GetLineInfo command? I found this post concerning it: http://www.gammon.com.au/forum/bbshowpost.php?bbsubject_id=1898. Should be enough to get me started :)

That, but instead of a timer, you can use a plugin call back.


Heres the example plugin.

Some MUDs let you customise the prompt to add a newline to it, which works around the problem with no need for scripting.
