Some old example plugins don't work anymore?

I am currently in the process of updating an old SMAUG codebase to teach it some new tricks, and amongst things I was trying to apply Nick's status-messages stuff. I think I got it applied fine, but I wanted to make sure, so I figured I'd scour the forums a bit.

Turns out I ended up at a thread (http://www.gammon.com.au/forum/bbshowpost.php?id=10043&page=1) where I debated quite intensively with Nick in the past. :)

The examples listed in the first few pages of the post don't seem to work anymore though; no miniwindow pops up for me. My guess is the miniwindow module got updated since the examples were first written.

Sadly, that's a module I have zero experience with, and I was wondering if someone happened to know how to fix those examples for testing purposes. (It would probably also be nice for other people who end up coming along that path some day. xD)

After that works, I'll have to start checking to see to what degree mapper support is implemented, too. xD

Do you mean, for example, the Health_Bar_Miniwindow_Telnet plugin?

I presume it would work if it got the right telnet messages. Are you sending those?

I implemented a diff based on source code of your smaugfuss github status-messages branch. It linked towards the topic I linked above in the ReadMe, so I definitely hope they are valid test cases for it. xD

The Telnet_Option_Test one is showing stuff fine (I noticed I missed that one prior to my posting), but the miniwindow ones ( Room_Location_Telnet & Health_Bar_Miniwindow_Telnet ) are never showing up. No error messages, but no miniwindow showing up either. I tried to force it visible with a WindowShow(pluginid, true), but no dice there.

Try making a different background colour than the default of black:


 WindowCreate (win, 
                 windowinfo.window_left, 
                 windowinfo.window_top, 
                 WINDOW_WIDTH, window_height,  
                 windowinfo.window_mode,   -- top right
                 windowinfo.window_flags,
                 ColourNameToRGB "lightgray") 

  WindowShow (win)


That should at least let you see where it is and drag it around (it did for me).

Also add an alpha character to the window ID, which helps when saving the state file:


  win = "healthbar" .. GetPluginID ()

It turns out that you were right. A more awake mind quickly made it obvious that the data that your status-messages branch emits does not in any way correspond with the data this plugin is looking for.

I adjusted the plugin and then it worked fine.

Sorry to have bothered you.

No problem. I was initially confused as to why the window didn't appear, but black-on-black can be rather hard to spot. :)
