MUSHclient version 4.55

I get a message saying "Unable to create the plugin save state file: J:\SG1\fonts\blah blah blah.xml" for each plugin that tries to save its state. As you can see, I don't use the MUSHclient directory as my working directory, so I don't have a fonts subdirectory. In version 4.54, it was looking for J:\SG1\worlds\plugins\state, which made more sense than J:\SG1\fonts... :)

That's nice, but this is still a bug to be fixed. The default save directory for a plugin's state should not be the fonts folder.

It's not based off the working directory. It's based off the Plugins directory (Global Options Ctrl+alt+G / Plugins tab). I'm guessing that is set to your fonts directory.

At the end of the thread, Nick mentioned the new Options in the mushclient_prefs.sqlite db. Set that to a valid path.

Nope. My plugins directory is the same as my working directory.

Try:


print (GetInfo (85))  --> .\worlds\plugins\state\


(That was what I got).

The trouble is, this value is a new field. Once changed (from the default of no value) the first time the default gets set up, if it is wrong it will stay wrong.

However looking more carefully at the code, I see perhaps it is setting up the default at the wrong time. As far as I can see, it sets up the default by appending state\ to the plugins directory *before* it has found out what the plugins directory is. The change I just made for version 4.56 might fix that.

I get the exact same result: .\worlds\plugins\state\. It was the fonts thing that really threw me off, as that made no sense for a default and I hadn't set it to that. :)

I suppose I'll have to manually change this option via a SetAlphaOption command now to fix it here?

Ah yes.


SetAlphaOption ("StateFilesDirectory", "whatever")


The new version might fix it - sounds like the default is not being set properly.

[EDIT] Wrong! See my post below.

I just did the SetAlphaOption, and GetInfo(85) still returns .\worlds\plugins\state\. Is 85 not the same as the StateFilesDirectory then?

Are you restarting MUSHclient after setting the alpha option?

I didn't the first time, but I just tried that and it's still set to the default value.

And GetAlphaOption does show the value you set initially? Odd.

I don't see it as an option on GetAlphaOptionList, so I'm not sure what you're asking or what I'm doing...

You don't see StateFilesDirectory in the alpha option list? Then this:

Should have had no effect in the first place. Nick?

Ah, I think I just did a major cock-up here. :)

The option in question was the default state file directory under global options. So it won't have any effect on the current value for a particular world.

Either my original fix was completely wrong, or my suggestions here are wrong. Or both.

Just to backtrack a bit, the plugins state files are (were) stored in the 'state' directory under the *default* plugins directory (not where a particular plugin happens to be).

The plugins directory is a *global* option "PluginsDirectory" (which you can change via the Sqlite3 interface).

Now after Willfa's request, there was an extra field added to Global options (not world options) which was the state file directory (default directory is not quite the right word - default for what?).

So if you change the global option "StateFilesDirectory" you can change where the state files go.

So as per this:

Template:post=10446 Please see the forum thread: http://gammon.com.au/forum/?id=10446.


You would need to do something like this:


sqlite3 mushclient_prefs.sqlite "UPDATE prefs SET value = 'C:\Program Files\MUSHclient\my_plugins\state\' WHERE name = 'StateFilesDirectory'"


I'm not sure this totally accounts for your "fonts" problem - but the bug I fixed might cause that. I have to admit this is a bit confusing.
