[3.27] [Fixed in 3.28] onRoomEnter isn't firing
 
Map Mode: Slow Walk
Method of Movement: Number Pad (non-speedwalk) and double-clicking to speedwalk

I'm moving around using both the keypad and by double-clicking to speedwalk. I don't see onRoomEnter firing anymore.

Is this on a GMCP MUD or non-GMCP?

I think the bug is that if I'm in slow walk mode and "Disable automatic confirmation" in "Automatic step confirmation" it will never produce an OnRoomEnter event when I do my own #ok. If I change the "Automatic step confirmation" to "Match Room Name" then it starts producing the OnRoomEnter events as it should.

There is also an interaction between this and GMCP. If the room has the flag for correct vnum then the OnRoomEnter event occurs right when the GMCP is received. If it isn't marked with the vnum flag then nothing fires. Historically when the prompt was received after #ok was received it caused the OnRoomEnter to fire. With the new GMCP code, it is now firing much earlier than it used it. I receive the GMCP info before I even see the room name or description and this is causing problems for me. I need to process the items coming from the room description before I have the information I need for the OnRoomEnter code.

Another oddity I noticed was that normally vnum flagged rooms produce the OnRoomEnter event, however, sometimes they stop altogether and I haven't figured out why that is. I'll be getting OnRoomEnter events with the vnum flagged rooms (but not with non-vnum flagged rooms) then all the sudden it will stop and I won't have the event firing in either case.

So the fix should should be:

1) Non-vnum flag room: Produce an OnRoomEnter event (at the prompt... as normal) when the user executes their own #ok to manually confirm a room change.
2) vnum flag room: Produce an OnRoomEnter event at the prompt instead of whenever the GMCP arrives (to allow processing items from the description). Make sure the mapper has updated itself to the new room location before the OnRoomEnter event is fired. Correct anything that may cause OnRoomEnter to stop firing... sorry I know this last one is a bit ambiguous, but I have no idea why it sometimes stops.

That's just the way GMCP works, sorry. The GMCP data acts as the "prompt" and triggers an internal #OK. I am not going to change this, so you'll need to modify your scripts to adapt.

Since that's how CMUD is supposed to be handling it, this is a bug and I'll see if it's an easy fix for the public release.

Not going to happen. The whole idea behind GMCP is that the mapper is completely controlled by the GMCP data and does not need anything else from the MUD (no prompt, etc).

Confirmed fixed in 3.28. OnRoomEnter reliably fires when "Disable automatic confirmation" is selected in slow walk mode.
