Trigger to Count Skill Use
 
Could someone help me with a simple trigger to count how many times a skill is used.

In my mud, your skill raises based on how many times you used it. For example, if I want to practice the "choke" skill, I want to know how many times I have done it successfully.

The message below is the message I get when I succeed at the skill.

"You concentrate and constrict your victim's throat."

And when it raises, this is the message:

"You feel better at using choke."

Anyway to keep an ongoing trigger that keeps count of how many times i've used the skill successfully? I'm using version 4.62.

Could you explain what #add skillcount 1 does?

Is it skillcount a variable, alias, etc...

Thanks.

skillcount is a variable, initialize it to 0 or whatever number you want to start at
#add skillcount 1
increases the value held in the skillcount variable by 1

oh awesome, that worked!

Just a quick question,

The

You concentrate and constrict your victim's throat.|You feel better at using choke

Does that mean if either those two strings pop up in the mud, then it'll add 1 to skillcount?
