Aff trackers

SeptusSeptus Member, Beta Testers Posts: 781 ✭✭✭✭✭

I figure we may as well have a thread for these.

I started rewriting my system a while ago (calling what I currently have a system is probably insulting), but I realised a little ways in that just because its ugly and would probably get me fired if my employer ever saw the state of it, doesn't mean it needs replacing (right Microsoft?)

The tracker (or the general framework of one) is all I got done, but maybe someone will find it useful, so I'll throw it up here as well. Its for mushclient (in python). It definitely will not work out of the box and there are some slightly advanced concepts, but someone may be interested.

    I also have put paresis in there instead of numbness a couple of times apparently. This is what happens when you play too many ire games.

    And reposting my shoddy framework from the Mudlet scripting thread along with the required database. Just the script itself here, so you'll have to make the triggers and aliases to use it. As well as generate a 'sys' variable and 'sys.tracker' variable, since this is a built in thing to my overall system.

    Also, you need a 30s timer that does

    --The collection timer removes unaltered tracker profiles

    for k,v in pairs (sys.tracker) do

    if k ~= "curebuffer" and k ~= "aff" and k ~= "me" then

    sys.tracker[k].collect = sys.tracker[k].collect + 1

    if sys.tracker[k].collect == 2 then

    sys.tracker[k] = nil

    end

    end

    end



    I suck at this or something. I'll export a cleaner xml when I go through and finish some major updates I have planned (and fix a myriad collection of awfully done things).

    The top part, for maidenhair, works. The bottom part, for kelp, is crashing my client. Any ideas on what the discrepancy is or how I could simplify it?

    On top of that, you want to learn how to do multiline triggers at some point. If you see them eat kelp, check the next line for 3p messages before curing anything, also never actually guess butisol or hemotoxin, since they have 3p messages. Just properly tracking 3p afflictions and building a stack with that as a secondary goal, you can usually track several affs deep before you have to make any actual assumptions. It makes a significant difference in your early game, especially as a toxin-only class like knights.

    I've helped a surprising amount of people learn to code things in this game! Hell, my free MM2k system from back in the day was the start of a surprising amount of fighters. 

    My priority list in doing so looks kind of like this:

    1. It works.
    2. It's easy for a non-coder to understand.
    3. It's easy for a non-coder to implement.
    4.  
    5.  
    6.  
    7.   
    8.  
    9.  
    10.  
    11.  
    12.  
    13.  
    14.  
    15.  
    16.  
    17.  
    18.  
    19.  
    20. It's pretty.

    That is what I am stuck on now. AL client can't do multi-line triggers. Or at least I haven't figured out how. \n doesn't work except for when I send the command.

    I don't have multiline triggers, either, and I have developed a few ugly workarounds.

    Curing butisol with kelp looks like this....

    Ultrix quickly eats a piece of kelp.
    Ultrix's skin color returns to normal and her sweating subsides.
    H:520/520 M:480/480 B:1 <e- pp> <db> D:0 F:0 K:0

    Since I can't multiline trigger that, my triggers would probably go something like this...

    /action {Ultrix quickly eats a piece of kelp.} {kelpeaten = 1}

    /action {Ultrix's skin color returns to normal and her sweating subsides } {if (kelpeaten) {kelpeaten = 0}; target_cure(butisol) }

    /action {H:520/520 M:480/480 B:1 <e- pp> <db> D:0 F:0 K:0} {/if (kelpeaten) {<do non-butisol/hemotoxin **** here>; kelpeaten = 0} }

    The problem with relying on this is that you end up doing a whole lot of crap on your prompt, so I'd gate that with one check that you set along with kelpeaten and the like so that you don't run a ton of checks constantly.

    Ah. AL Client. That's probably your problem right there. =P I'm not having any luck finding any documentation on AL, so I'll have to give pseudo-code here.

    First, with the code you provided after Mathiaus helped you cut down on conditionals. If you have a common condition(the stricmp portion), instead of checking it on each elseif, nest your ifs:

    %2
    quickly eats a piece of kelp.=#if ((stricmp(target,"%2") == 0) {#if (merc = 1){#set merc = 0};#elseif (ethe = 1){#set ethe = 0};#elseif (arse = 1){#set arse = 0};#set brom = 0}

    In lieu of multiline triggers, you could have triggers that enable/disable each other actively. I don't really know if that's doable in AL either.

    Most barebones way I can think to handle it would be doing something like:

    %2 quickly eats a piece of kelp.
    #if ((stricmp(target,"%2") == 0) {
      #set herb = "kelp"
    }

    %2's colour returns to %3 face.
    #if ((stricmp(target,"%2") == 0) {
      #set aff = "hemotoxin"
    }

    <whatever your prompt trigger looks like>
    #if ((stricmp(herb, "kelp") == 0){
      #if ((stricmp(aff, "hemotoxin") == 0){
        #set hemo = 0
      };#elseif ((strcmp(aff, "butisol") == 0){
        #set buti = 0
      };#else{
        #if (merc = 1) {
          #set merc = 0
        };#elseif (ethe = 1){
          #set ethe = 0
        };#elseif (arse = 1){
          #set arse = 0
        };
        #set brom = 0
      };
    };

    Oh, and if you're looking to do any significant coding, you'll have a much easier time in a more modern client like MUSH or Mudlet. The above code would take the following in Mudlet; note the significantly improved readability:

    On a multiline trigger that matches the following:
    ^(\w+) quickly eats (?:a|an|some) (.*)\.$
    1 line spacer
    ^(.+)$

    local name = multimatches[1][2]
    local herb = multimatches[1][3]
    local secondLine = multimatches[3][1]
    local aff

    if not name:matches(target) then return end --stops the trigger right here on non-targets.

    if secondLine:match("colour returns to") then
      aff = "hemotoxin"
    elseif secondLine:match("sweating subsides") then
      aff = "butisol"
    end

    if aff then
      t[aff] = false
    else
      if herb:match("kelp") then
        if t["weariness"] then
          t["weariness"] = false
        elseif t["clumsiness"] then

    I use Mudlet and don't use multiline triggers unless the second line is completely non-specific yet relevant to track. Affliction tracking certainly didn't fall into that category.

    If I'm not mistaken, you keep a table of all the big things that happen(envenom/dsl/rebounding or herb/3p) sort of events, then parse them all when you see the prompt? I can't think of a situation where our methods don't end at the same results, it's just that we have different preferences on how to go about getting it done. =P And with how long it took me to get a really solid handle on the potential power of Mudlet's trigger engine, I'll be damned if I don't make extensive use of it now. =D

    I still remember when Khizan taught me how to code, funnily enough, in CMUD. There were a large number of nested IFs in my first attempt. Almost as many as my tears. :D

    The fact that Khizan taught you how to code explains so much now....:)

    Wait, what do you mean "start of" ?

    Multilines keep my tracking more solid than anything else. Hard to imagine coding an aff tracker without them.

    I think the way Iniar does it, you end up with a table like:
    stuff that happened before prompt = {
      "envenom aconite",
      "I dsl baasche",
      "baasche shrug"
      "envenom hemotoxin",
      "I dsl baasche",
      "baasche herb kelp",
      "baasche 3p hemotoxin",
    }

    That's going to be just as accurate in the end, I just really don't like doing things that way. =P

  • MathiausMathiaus PennsylvaniaMember Posts: 1,039 ✭✭✭✭
    I'm guessing it's something like:

    if prompt[target.." 3p hemotoxin"] then
      afflictions["hemotoxin"] = false
    end

    or something like that set in the prompt script would do it, especially since dsl is so spammy with extra things you can't assume you have all the multilines captured.

    You can, using a nested trigger, with an unlimited fire length that matches all necessary lines, then breaks when prompt is received.

    Prompt checking. Setting toxin1 and toxin2 for what I slash with (still trying to figure out how to go about this). But I want to clear it upon rebounding. If I hit rebounding, I check to see what toxin1 and toxin2 are and then the clear them to equal 0, also clearing the affliction I gave. It's crashing my client again.

    I have a few issues with this one:

    most importantly, are you absolutely sure you want to clear an affliction, given that the person may already have it?

    a la;

    send -> dsl iniar aconite aconite
    Ahkan dsls Iniar with aconite (3rd party)
    Iniar rebounding up
    Theo dsls Iniar with aconite
    Theo hits rebounding
    code removes aconite

    The way you handle that is by making the slash set variables that do something like this....

    You envenom a sabre with aconite -> dsl_toxin1 = aconite
    You slash Iniar                  -> afflict1 = get_aff(aconite)
    <prompt>                         -> target_afflicted(afflict1)

    You envenom a sabre with aconite -> dsl_toxin1 = aconite
    You slash Iniar                  -> afflict1 = get_aff(aconite)
    You rebound!                     -> afflict1 = ''
    <prompt>                         -> target_afflicted(afflict1)

    "On the battlefield I am a god. I love war. The steel, the smell, the corpses. I wish there were more. On the first day I drove the Northmen back alone at the ford. Alone! On the second I carried the bridge! Me! Yesterday I climbed the Heroes! I love war! I… I wish it wasn’t over."

    That is almost exactly how I do it. Including aff curing.

    I prefer to capture the DSL line + the next 2 lines in a multi line. And then I feed the the 2 following lines through pattern matching. Not necessarily better or worse than any of the previous, just the way I do it.

    The nice thing about coding is that there is often more than one way that works. Unlike mathematics. :(

    E: that's not entirely true either. :|

    On top of that, you want to learn how to do multiline triggers at some point. If you see them eat kelp, check the next line for 3p messages before curing anything, also never actually guess butisol or hemotoxin, since they have 3p messages. Just properly tracking 3p afflictions and building a stack with that as a secondary goal, you can usually track several affs deep before you have to make any actual assumptions. It makes a significant difference in your early game, especially as a toxin-only class like knights.

    3p messages here: http://forums.imperian.com/discussion/comment/23393/#Comment_23393

    That is what I am stuck on now. AL client can't do multi-line triggers. Or at least I haven't figured out how. \n doesn't work except for when I send the command.

    Holy crap, someone else who uses AL Client!


    One thing that AL client has taught me is that you don't need anything fancy to make anything work, you just need to think around it. 


    By the way! The reason your client is crashing so much is because AL Client is absolutely horrible with huge nested if statements. It will sometimes work, and sometimes not. You have to split it up into functions.

    The simplest trick of doing this is to set a "dummy aliases" where your code runs. Simply, once you get to some part of your elseif statements, simply end with an "else" statement that activates an alias like "Afftrackingpart2" which will contain the next portion of your code.

    Not only does this help ease the stress on AL Client itself, but it portions out your code to make debugging way easier.


    As for rebounding, the way I do it in AL Client is to have a separate variable which captures the toxin I slash with. If it sees the message "the attack has rebounded onto you", then it simply removes those from the list. Simple and clean.

    I can't do multi-lines. That's what's killing me. The prompt thing is so damn confusing to me.

    Plus I don't get how to distinguish between toxin1 and toxin2 one a dsl since the messages are exactly the same.
