I can get it to filter the text I want, but after that it filters everything else coming from the 'main' world. Am I missing a command to switch the multi-line filter off?

Thanks

  if line:sub (-1) == '==============================================================================' then


Testing this:


line = "=============================================================================="
print (line:sub(-1))


This prints "=".

You are comparing the last character of the line to a whole lot of equals signs, which won't match.

Maybe:


  if line == '==============================================================================' then

Having a slight problem; I'm trying to filter out emotes on channels as well, but it isn't catching them because they don't end with '. How would I capture that with this?

Example:
[CHAT] Blackjack just wants things to work as close to perfectly as possible,
is that really too much to ask

It will catch it, but it will also catch the newline after it, or even both the newline and the prompt, which I don't want cluttering up the place. Any advice?

Hi, I'm trying(And failing) to adapt this to a MUCK I play on. Sadly, I can't get anything to show up on the "Chat World"

The standard channels are;

<OOC> <name> says
<OOC> <name> <does something>
[Public] <name> says
[Public] <name> <does something>
says
page

If anyone can help, it'd be greatly appreciated :)


EDIT: With exception to the <OOC> itself, the things in <> are variables, just in case it isn't clear :P

@Squeegy - sorry, I missed this question.

You need to identify what is different about the line that is not the chat line, so it can stop when it hits it. Perhaps post an example chat with an example of what follows it?




@Alkain - can you post what you tried?

Sadly I erased it all, but I tried several of the fixes listed here with slight modifications.

I did set up the chat world as specified and made sure the script pointed to it.

I just fiddled with the match= line though, but I can't remember what I did exactly :/

I think there are a few versions over the life of this thread. Take then one you tried, try to get it working, and then post what you have.

Hello!

I've been using this script, albeit highly modified, for quite some time now. I've come to a scenario where I want to send my information messages (info messages from the client, not from the M* I'm connected to) to a separate window.

Is this possible with the current script? If not, is there anything I can use to do such?

I'd appreciate it if anyone could help!

I suppose I used the wrong term. Rather than information, I suppose notes would be the proper term. Sorry for the confusion, if any.

It could probably be done one way or another. You could intercept "Note" function calls and make them do something else, if that is where the notes are coming from.

This is a great plugin and all, and I use it quite successfully on the Discworld MUD.. However, how can I put this exact same redirect script into a mini window with a context menu to choose which channels/chats to echo in the main output (like the Aardwolf chat window), instead of a world window?
