Hello,
I've seen other clients that do this, but I haven't been able to replicate this functionality in MUSHclient.

Basically what I'd like to see is a way to match on a line of text, and be able to parse crucial information out of that line of text and into variables, then substitute the old line of text with a new, shorter one, for example.

I've tried doing this by checking "omit from output", but calls to world.simulate() do nothing when this option is checked, at least as far as I can tell.

Make your trigger with a low priority.
Send to Script After Omit
Simulate away!

To keep colours, if you send to 'script (after omit)' it will save the line in a table called TriggerStyleRuns, which you can use like this to replicate the line:

for k, v in ipairs (TriggerStyleRuns) do
  ColourTell (RGBColourToName (v.textcolour),
              RGBColourToName (v.backcolour),
              v.text)
end -- for
Note ("")

You can, anywhere within this, modify the line however you wish by adding a tell before it, modifying v.text in the tell for a certain section, or adding to the end by adding to the note.

Just noticed you said 'world.' so I'm guessing you're not using Lua. That's how I'd do it in Lua, not sure about your language.

Ahh, I had forgotten that "script (after omit)" was an option.

Thanks all!

Ok, I had to use tell instead of simulate (simulate still refused to do anything), but it seems to work now. Awesome. Thanks again.

Hrm, maybe there's a bug after all.

I noticed that If I try to use two triggers to change two lines that are close together, a score display, for example, the first trigger works fine, but the second doesn't even execute, for some reason.

In the MUD I'm playing, the verbose score display is written in sentence format. Just to test, I tried setting up some substitution triggers for the first two lines. The first trigger works, getting variables with the current/max HP, guild points, quest points, achievement points etc, but the second line that's supposed to tell me my XP, guild level and rating shows up as normal, instead of being substituted.

I would be cautious about using Simulate, that was really intended for debugging. ColourNote, ColourTell etc. are the way to go for putting stuff back into the output window.

As for your trigger problems, triggers work pretty reliably. It is most likely that your matching is off. Try posting the example MUD output, and your exact triggers, see: http://mushclient.com/copying

Ok, here's the text that I'm trying to substitute. Just FYI, I'm using VBScript in the triggers.

"
You have 1919 (1919) hit points, 120 (349) guild points, 410 (679) quest points, 128 (1021) achievement points and 500 (500) social points.
Your current experience is 65690 and you are level 246 in Mrs. Widgery's Lodgers; your overall rating is 95476.
"

The XML for the triggers is:

<trigger
enabled="y"
group="score"
keep_evaluating="y"
match="You have * (*) hit points, * (*) guild points, * (*) quest points, * (*) achievement points and * (*) social points."
omit_from_output="y"
send_to="14"
sequence="1"
>
<send>world.tell "HP: %1/%2. GP: %3/%4. QP: %5/%6. AP: %7/%8." + vbcrlf</send>
</trigger>
<trigger
enabled="y"
group="score"
keep_evaluating="y"
match="Your current experience is * and you are level * in *; your overall rating is *."
omit_from_output="y"
send_to="14"
sequence="1"
>
<send>world.tell "XP: %1. LVL: %2 (%3). RT: %4." + vbcrlf</send>
</trigger>

If I turn both triggers on, the first line gets modified the way I want it, but the second line remains unchanged. Once I disable the first trigger, the second one works.

I just tested what you pasted there and both lines got modified. What version of MUSHclient are you using?

One change I would suggest is changing:


<send>world.tell "HP: %1/%2. GP: %3/%4. QP: %5/%6. AP: %7/%8." + vbcrlf</send>


to:


<send>Note "HP: %1/%2. GP: %3/%4. QP: %5/%6. AP: %7/%8."</send>



(The world. part isn't necessary these days).

The more important point is that Tell is for partial lines, and Note is to have the client complete the line for you (in which case you don't need the vbcrlf).

Note only is that shorter and neater, I think earlier versions got a bit confused with the transitions from Note lines to MUD output, so it possibly didn't recognize the second line as MUD output, and therefore something to be triggered from.

Ahh, I didn't know that "world." was no longer required. I'm using version 4.41. I'll try the modifications you suggested.

Thanks a lot.

Maybe another trigger is matching? Try giving both triggers a name (put something in the "Label" box) and then turn on trace: Game menu -> Trace.

That will show which, if any, triggers match.

The trace output might be omitted from output too, try redirecting to a miniwindow. To do that, install this plugin:

Ok...

I did that, and with both triggers enabled, got the following:
Matched trigger "You have * (*) hit points, * (*) guild points, * (*) quest points, * (*) achievement points and * (*) social points."

However, the second trigger didn't match, as if the first one was somehow preventing the second one from being matched on or executing.
When I disabled the first, I got this instead:
Matched trigger "Your current experience is * and you are level * in *; your overall rating is *."

Trigger matching is atomic on lines. There is no behaviour that, if one line matches, it somehow prevents future lines matching (unless, of course, the first match executes a script that disables triggers).

I am starting to wonder about your "lines". That is why I queried the use of world.Tell instead of world.Note.

Since my test worked, that confirms that your triggers are OK, and the client is OK. Now we have to wonder about the input data. ;_)

Can you please go the Edit menu and turn on Debug Packets? Then reproduce the problem. Turn Debug Packets off or the packet debug will get very large. In the resulting packet debug window, find the packet or packets that contain the problem lines, and post them here.
