I have made a video showing how to make a targetting alias. This covers a lot of the material in the Making Aliases part of the forum.

http://www.gammon.com.au/forum/?id=8084

It can be watched at: How to make a targeting alias in MUSHclient. An imbedded copy is below on this page.

Constructive comments are welcome, for example is it too fast, too slow, not enough detail, and so on.

Wow, this was great Nick! It was like being in a classroom with the teacher right there looking over your shoulder helping you along. I'm a very visual learner, and while the original post had screen shots this was much easier to follow and actually see the immediate results.

I also watched the plugin video. Again, excellent. I found them just the right speed to follow. I haven't yet created my own plugin but I did learn from this video to be careful with existing aliases/triggers/etc and to get rid of them if they aren't necessary for the specific plugin (I guarantee I would have left them in and posted "Why is this...")

I hope there will be more. There's lots of tips and tricks I'm sure you can teach us. :)

Thank you for the supportive comments. Glad you liked it.

Just for the record, the aliases used in the tutorial appear below:


<aliases>
 
  <alias
   match="t *"
   enabled="y"
   send_to="12"
   sequence="100"
  >
  <send>

SetVariable ("target", "%1")

ColourNote ("white", "blue", "Target is now: %1")

SetStatus ("Target: %1")

</send>
  </alias>


 <alias
   match="k"
   enabled="y"
   expand_variables="y"
   sequence="100"
  >
  <send>kill @target</send>
  </alias>


  <alias
   match="p"
   enabled="y"
   expand_variables="y"
   sequence="100"
  >
  <send>punch @target</send>
  </alias>


  <alias
   match="bs"
   enabled="y"
   expand_variables="y"
   sequence="100"
  >
  <send>backstab @target</send>
  </alias>


</aliases>

These videos are a great idea. I think they'll make learning to use MUSHclient much easier for new users.

If you didn't add CC or Annotations, that would help too for those who are deaf.

I've added CC to the targetting video - it is pretty time-consuming to do, but at least I have learnt a new trick ... how to closed caption my own video.

In case anyone is wondering, I had to make a file with the timecode on it, what the caption line is, and a blank line, once every few seconds, like this:


00:00:00.00
I'm going to show today how to make a targeting alias

00:00:03.63
which lets you target mobs in MUSHclient

00:00:06.86
and that lets you just type in the name once to target them

00:00:10.86
and then do other actions such as kicking them, punching them

00:00:14.83
without having to type their name all the time

00:00:17.38
like, for example, "minotaur" is  a fairly lengthy name to have to type

00:00:22.66
on every command


Supposedly it gets translated into other languages automatically, it would be interesting to hear if it comes out reasonably, or as complete gibberish.

[EDIT] The video has been moved to Vimeo which does not currently support closed-captioning.
