Slow Walk (Step)
 
Is there a way to initiate the first step of a slow walk, and type #STEP every time that you'd like to move to the next room? I'm having a difficult time just initiating the slow walk because it always moves the entire route of the path instead of moving slowly as it is suggested.

I have a path saved under the name test. The movements are 3es4en5eswnw

when I type #SLOW test nothing happens. When I click on the actual paths button and click the step button, it allows me to take the first step east and I can type #STEP to finish the entire path until it's competion.

when I type .test it fastwalks me through the entire path.

Is there a way to initiate the step feature of the test path manually without the need of clicking the paths button, clicking on test, and then clicking on the step button?

I tend to not use the inbuilt system and just make my own:

#IF (@destination) {#EXEC %pop(%pathexpand(%pathfrom(, @destination)))}

You can pop that in an alias for manual use or by script.

Thank you Shalimar. Can you give me an example of how I would make my own?

That was the example, to make it work you just set @destination to be the %roomnum or %roomid of where you want to end up. and throw all that mess in a trigger, with some cleanup:

Code:
#TR {Obvious exit} {
  //First we check to see if we have a destination in mind.
  #IF (@destination) {
    //Then we check to see if we are at said destination.
    #IF ((%match( @destination, %roomid)) OR (%roomnum=@destination)) {
      //If so, we Say as much.
      #PRINT {You have reached: %pop( destination)}
      } {
      //Else we take the next step.
      #EXEC %pop(%pathexpand(%pathfrom(, @destination)))
      }
    }
  }
