Delayed Double Trigger
I've got a funky bug in my triggers. Sometimes after a trigger has gone off and I get another prompt, the trigger fires again.

You eat dark purple herb. <-- line to trigger on
g dark bag <-- trigger fires once

[10732hp 778bps -641]<SUSC><><73%>[Brahm] <-- prompt
g dark bag <-- trigger fires second time

But it doesn't do it all the time, or even most of the time. And it doesn't do it for only one trigger or class of triggers. Seems as if sometimes it just repeats the last command. I know its not sending ! or some repeat character to the mud because I get the double firing on triggers the just use #sa command too.

Running 6.16, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Not sure where your problem is coming from.

You could
1) check how you deal with your prompt. Do you capture the prompt then
possibly echo the mud output received after it trying to get that piece to
trigger against a ^trigger?

2) uncheck in the trigger options "trigger on trigger" in case it is somehow
getting an echo or something.

3) Rigourously go through your triggers to see if it might be catching
something that is in a class folder that is turning off/on.

I experienced this double triggering problem after upgrading or reinstalling zMud.

My problem was due to some triggers appearing more than once in the settings file.

I solved this by following Zuggs settings/map migration advice at

When importing the settings file, check the alias and triggers listed for double entries, and remove duplicated entries.

The double entries only appeared in the import listing, and do not appear normally - this was the only way I found of finding and removing them.

Hope this helps.
