powwow subs

Post by wiseman » Mon Jan 19, 2009 6:53 pm

I've been setting up some powwow subs lately for arrives/leaves/etc and I can't seem to figure out how to get them to actually sub and not just display on a new line below the game message.

For example, this is how my subs current work:

Code: Select all

A scholar has arrived from the west.
ARRIVES FROM THE > W E S T <
I'm trying to figure out how I can get them to just show:

Code: Select all

A scholar ARRIVES FROM THE > W E S T <
Any powwow experts out there know how to do this. or if it's even possible?

This isn't exactly what you want, since I use regular expression to match for any of the directions and then leave the text as it is.

Code: Select all

#action %+arrived ^(.+) has arrived from (above|below|the west|the east|the north|the south)(.+)={#print (\$2 + " has ARRIVED FROM >> " + \$3 + \$4 + " <<")}
#action %+s_arrived ^(.+) has suddenly arrived.={#print (\$2 + " has SUDDENLY ARRIVED.")}
In order for it to do what you want you would need to modify it similar to this:

Code: Select all

#action %+arrived ^(.+) has arrived from the west(.+)={#print (\$2 + " has ARRIVED FROM THE >> W E S T << " + \$3)}

You don't need to use regexp actions for that btw.
But as Jahara showed, you need to print an expression, such as: (\$2 + " some text " + \$3)
The backslashes in front of $2 and $3 prevent immediate (premature) substitution of the variables with their respective contents. I prefer to use $(2) and $(3) notation for the same purpose (since Cosmos, the author of powwow, told me about the possibility). Backslashes get messy when you have nested definitions.

Thanks! That will get me started quite nicely.
