need help with {} and predefined variables
 
This one fires:

Pattern: You say, ~"(%w){ me|}~"
Value: #show %1 %2

But this one doesn't:

Pattern: You say, ~"(%w){ (%w)|}~"
Value: #show %1 %2


Why? I am trying to create a trigger with multiple options and default/unsaid options.

I'm pretty sure you can't use wildcards in alternation options. You will have to use a full regex trigger instead. You may get away with a string list in that scenario, but I haven't used zMud actively for sometime, so I'm not 100% sure.

There is an option in preferences that addresses this. I don't have zMud open in front of me to get the exact box, but it's called "Allow wildcards in string lists" or something like that. It's a check box.

Ahh.. you're right. It's under View -> Preferences -> General -> Script Parser.

Try it without the () around the %w in the stringlist.
