Automapper No Longer Adding Rooms
 
Hello,

So I'm on an LPMud. Before the automapper had its quirks to work through and I had it working but the exits for new rooms where off when a room description would have one of the cardinal directions in the room description.

So I managed to make a trigger that would capture multiline exits and then tag the line with the exit directions as exit.

Example of a room description:
Code:

The trees around you grow at a distance from one another. Between the trees,
the underbrush consists of coarse grass and some bushes. Sunlight easily
pierces the roof of the forest. Dry grasslands lie to the east. To the south
and west you see a dark but inviting forest.
 Obvious directions are:
  north, east, south, west.

Not sure how to display nested tags here but

Parent:
Code:
Pattern:^\sObvious directions are:

Type: Pattern
Regular expression, trigger on newline, and trigger on trigger are all checked

Child:
Code:
Pattern:^\s\s(.*)\.
Script: #TAG exit {%1}

Type: Within Lines 1
Regular expression, trigger on newline, trigger on trigger are all checked.

I also setup another trigger for when it is a single line exit. (i.e. The only obvious exit is north.)
Pattern: ^\sThe only obvious exit is (.*)\.
Code:
Script: #TAG exit {%1}


I have reran the reconfigure mapper option multiple times with no luck.

When the triggers are disabled, the automapper functions like before with adding new rooms to the map as I discover them. However when I enable the triggers, it no longer adds new rooms and I noticed that the command #LOOK no longer works. Same with trying to find myself on a map.

Any ideas how to get the automapper to work while handling multiline exits? LPMuds are a pain for this stuff. Laughing

Thanks

You can put a carriage return into the pattern to make a multiline trigger like so:

Code:
#TR { Obvious directions are:$  (*)} {#TAG exit {%1}}


P.S. if triggers were off when you reconfigured, they aren't taken into consideration.

Thanks for getting back to me so quickly!

So, with this tweak it now captures the line "Obvious directions are:" as part of the room description.

Is there a way to get it to not add this to the room description?

Maybe add a #NOMAP to it.

Tried that now the automapper won't parse the line with the exits on it at all.

I was worried about that...
Okay, delete that trigger and try it like this:

Code:
#TR { Obvious directions are:$} {#NOMAP}
#COND {^  (*)} {#TAG exit {%1}} {within|param=1}

Okay! That works. (Sorry on the delayed response.)

New wrinkle: Using #LOOK to update/fix room descriptions is not working. Any ideas how to rectify? I all ready tried reconfiguring the mapper.

You still have to be in mapping mode for #LOOK to work
