Mapper Question/Potential Bug
|Okay, I'm trying to create a script that will begin a speedwalk, using the automapper, pause in each room for an indeterminate amount of time, and then move on to the next room.
Pertinent Mapper Settings:
1) Mapper is set to SLOW mode.
2) The option "Wait for prompt in SLOW mode" is disabled.
3) onroomenter alias has a "#PAUSE" in it.
4) Mapper is set to match Room Names rather than descriptions.
The mapper moves through all the rooms without pausing. The onroomenter alias IS firing before the next direction is sent (or at least echoed to the screen).
So I'll see:
[Shard, Bloodstone Way]
Slow walking aborted
I think this might be a bug. According to the documentation, the onroomenter alias is supposed to trigger before the next step is sent to the MUD, which I suppose it is doing. However, the slow walking isn't actually aborted.
This exact same script works PERFECTLY when I enable the option "Wait for prompt in SLOW mode" in the mapper settings. Any thoughts? I normally don't care if I wait for the prompt or not, except Dragonrealms isn't the absolute most reliable MUD when it comes to prompts, and normal speedwalking is typically slightly faster when the option is disabled.
