#IF help
 
Trying to do my first if trigger. Any ideas why this wont work?

#trigger ~*~*
{
#IF (@SP > 150) { say high sp! } { say low sp! }
}

I get the message: "ERROR: Trigger ~*~* HP: fired but did not compile"

CMUD's a bit stricter on scripting now... this is what you need.

Code:

#trigger ~*~*  {
    #IF (@SP > 150) {
       say high sp!
    } {
       say low sp!
   }
}


Notice the curly brace on the same line as the #trigger.

The indents aren't required, but they make easy code reading.

I've tried it several ways now ... I just can't get it to work. I must be doing something really dumb. I did try copy and pasting your trigger text there, but that didn't work either.

Curly braces didn't work either.
Right now I've got the following text inside the script field for the trigger:

Code:
#IF(@SP > 150) {
   say High SP!
} {
   say Low SP!
}


Still not working.

You need a space between the #IF and first bracket:
Code:
#IF (@SP > 150) {
say High SP!
} {
say Low SP!
}

Yeah.. I'm sorry when I edited it the first time I forgot the braces around the pattern.. this will work from the command line too..

Code:
#trigger {~*~*}  {
    #IF (@SP > 150) {
       say high sp!
    } {
       say low sp!
   }
}

Though it gets the spacing a bit better if you use

Code:
#trigger {~*~*}  {
#IF (@SP > 150) {
   say high sp!
} {
   say low sp!
}
}


Since the parser doesn't eat any of your spaces, including the three that lead up to the #if command.
