Macros Firing Multiple Times [3.34]
 
Is there any reason why this would happen?

Details:
On one session, I can press ctrl-down, nothing happens (no macro).

I enter in the command:
#KEY CTRL-DOWN {test}

Then when I press ctrl & the down arrow, I get the word "test" 3x.

On another session (to a different game / without the triggers and such), if I enter in the same command, I just get the word "test" once.

There is only one definition of CTRL-DOWN on each session's editor... and I get the 3 hits even if I disable everything but that one ctrl down on it, which leaves me thinking that there's something defined in the session properties somewhere that would cause this. I'm just not sure where it would be.

Any ideas?

This is happening on a Windows 7 box.

It is a known bug that will hopefully be fixed in 3.35, this bug fix release has been significantly delayed due to a number of RL issues.

Please have patience and when the next release comes check to see if the bug has been fixed.

Actually, I found a solution (possibly).

I did an export all to XML, closed cMud and moved the package to a subfolder.

Reopened it, opened the editor (so now my session had 0 triggers in it), and did an XML import. The macro is now just firing once.

Have to test other things to ensure that they survived the export / import process, but if it worked... well, we shall see.

The core cause of the problem is actually one of the preference options. Forget exactly which one (allow macro assigned to any key, or override menu with macros, or one of those). So you probably just had different preferences between the sessions (which are not saved in the XML).

I thought it might be something like that but I couldn't find it. Thank you!
