Pwar's Plugin Manager
Note #7740
posted on Tech
Friday, September 14, 2018 @ 11:08
I have just updated my showmap plugin to include a link to Huko's map for
Arboretum as well as updating a couple other areas and map links.
 
showmap, mudbin, soundpack, and my version of S&D can all be installed and
updated to their most recent versions via Pwar's Plugin Manager (ppm).
 
This requires at least version 1955 of Fiendish' client package. You
should probably update anyways. (checkversion)
 
Download link for ppm:

Hi all Blowtorch users

I have written a shortish tutorial about setting up Button Sets for
my Quest and Campaign helper plugin.

You will find the link to it at the bottom of the page. Any feed
back about the tutorial will be appreciated.

I do hope this helps some of you play the game more easily.
Thanks

hello fellow blowtorch abusers

i have been made aware of a few gremlins, and discovered a few myself
and that meant stomping on them, which was fun, but also
means that i had to upload the new versions for you to download.
included in the package is, in no particular order:
spellup, consider, gmcp_mapper, quest/campaign helper and
the autohunt/hunttrick plugin. there have also been some changes made
to the AreasArray.lua file, so you should now not get error for darkside
and sahugain.

Had some issues w/ Wine Stable regarding dependancies but 100% certain
it's lack of knowledge.  I did come across Wine Bottler which worked
great after adding Pytlak's resolution argument.  Did take me a few times
as I kept trying to save the new Aardwolf.app file in the Win32 source
directory, creating a recursive copy which I didn't notice until I had a
134gb Aardwolf.app :)
 
Thanks all for help, glad to finally have windowing states resolved and

MSI is n't a bad branch, but add "Wal-Mart" and you get weary.
 
Here is what I'd loook for if you're trying to go that route:
 
1) Integrated or Dedicated Graphics?  IF integrated, just walk away.  I don't 
if it's that popular Intel 6xxHD chips, if it's integrated walk away.  I did
test out a Yoga 920 and a Asus Zenbook 3 Pro, both very decent systems with 8th
gen processors, but couldn't play anything past Medium settings.  I did
end up playing with using a GeForce 1070 with an Aorus eGPU box, thosse work
very well but have to drop another $600 or so bucks on it.
 
2) CPU Generation.  So all Intel CPU's have a model like i7 8550u.  The
first number represents which generation chip it is - in this case, 8th gen.
8th gen is most recent and been out for almost a year now, so to ensure 
you don't go obsolete almost immediately stick with an 8th gen.  On
those, the major difference between i5 and i7 (and i9) is 4-, 6-, and 8-core
chipsets.  I'm a fan of "buy expensive, buy once" philosophy, so if you can
afford it go i7. i9 is a bit overkill.  If not, i5 should be fine as you're
really dependant on the GPU, not CPU, for gaming.  Levels may load slower,
but most of the work is on the GPU.
 
When going to Wal-Mart, I'm betting they're a good deal because a) materials
and quality, but more likely b) that damn Intel 6xx chipset.  A lot
of people say it's damn near a dedicated GPU.  2 laptops with that chipset
and a eGPU with 8GB vRAM later, well... it was an expensive lesson.  Great
chips for everything except for gaming.

Please go to each area and 'xset mark' your preferred start/xrunto room.

In general, this seems to fix most issues with this.  The problem is that when
S&D iterates over the area list table, it is iterating over a hash table and
there is no guarantee which entry on that table will come up (and possibly
match) first.  It's not a bug per se, just a constraint of this language /
system.

It seems that a number of android users of blowtorch do not
have access to the full google playstore.
This means that they can't register for the Beta version of Blowtorch,
which fixes some annoying glitches but more importantly will allow
the use of the mapper that I ported from Mushclient.
After much searching I finally managed to find where my
version of the apk file had hidden itself. I have zipped

MUSH on Wine - Saving Window States
 
This is not an Aardwolf MUSHClient defect so not looking for a solution there.
Instead my issue is with Wine - it seems to always want to start on MacOS
in maximum window size (not full screen).  Even though my main working
area in MUSH is very small, and I've gone through all of the Wine configs
I could find, I can't seem to resolve this so reaching out to Wine or
PlayOnMac users who may have had this issue and found a resolution.

hi
I have discovered today that the struggles getting the mapper
to work are because it requires version 2.1 of Blowtorch.

this is only avaible as a beta tester via the google playstore app.
you need to sign up as a beta tester, down the bottom of the page
and it then switches from the old 2.0 to the new 2.1 version.

i am looking  work arounds but it seems to be an issue with the version of
sqlite being user in that old version

I have converted the mapper used by MushClient for Blowtorch.
This is the backend only, not the GUI. it learns as you move around,
you can add portals and custom exits, which the mapper will
use when moving from place to place.

the url is in my finger information, and instructions for installing
it are included in the readme file.

please note that this is still in testing but all the main
features are working. I also do not plan to change the
layout of the database, so you do not have to worry about
it becoming obsolete, if i add any more major functions. i will
also include a method to update the database if i do have to
make major changes.

there is a list of commands, with basic instructions also on github
see the CommandList.md file for those

used it or had reason to include it in my Apple ensemble of gear.
 
Came across this really great app called Duet Display which is $20 and turns
your iPad into an external monitor via the charging cable.  Tested on Mac
and Win10 and worked pretty well!  Very neat to have a portalable and
lightweight display if you need it.

hi

I've been working on these for some time and feel it is time
to unleash them on the general mud population.

As a user of blowtorch the lack of plugins frustrated me, and so I set
about writing some basic plugins for blowtorch. These then
evolved in to slightly more complex plugins as my ability to adept
code from mushclient improved.

I am unleashing 3 plugins on the denizens of Aardwolf. A huntrick/autohunt
plugin. A quest helper plugin. AND the start of a mapper plugin.

All three of these are available from my github repository. The
url is listed in my finger info. But if you can't wait that long to
 look it up https://github.com/Shindo-Aardwolf

please note that the mapper is not yet complete. it DOES NOT handle
custom exits yet. I'm working out how to do that in the absence of
the wait function that mushclient uses.

feedback is welcome and i will attempt to answer easy questions
about using the mapper BUT it is up to you to work out how
to do things with buttons, nocilis has a very good set of instructions
regarding that part of things.

Sweet, so you've already done the work on your end for it. Please update the
example on your wiki page on the comm log window when you get a chance.
It only mentions the argument of the message to send.

Although, I think it'd be pimp to still have an option in the right-click
GUI to choose storeFromOutside, and have that impact the ones which
don't expressly set the tab in the CallPlugin command?

For anyone who is using Mendaloth's plugin and wants to send tracker stuff
to a tab other than "1", open the plugin in a text editor, and change 
line 117 from:
CallPlugin("b555825a4a5700c35fa80780","storeFromOutside",styles_to_colors)
to
CallPlugin("b555825a4a5700c35fa80780","storeFromOutside",styles_to_colors,2)
where the "2" is the number for whatever tab you want.

Thanks!

Thanks Abelinc for explaining that - I actually understood all of it! :)
 
I don't know how many people ask for something like this, and if it's enough
to put in an enhancement in his backlog, but I did find a way aroudn this.
Since the first tab is the only one that can successfully capture
storeFromOutside it made sense to disable all channels and info on the first
tab which would then result in exactly what I was wanting - just Tracker :)
Rename it, create new tab called All, add the channels, boom!
 
Thanks again for the explanation and looking into why / how it worked.

While it does use aardwolf's echo command, that's not the important thing for
your issue. More on that in a minute.

>Is there a way to get echo's to show up in a custom tab?

There is no way possible to know what output from the MUD came from an echo
(except for echocommands, but that would be silly for this), so the comm log
can never have an "echo" capture or "echo" tab or option.

But how can that be, if Mendaloth's fake tracker channel shows up there?
The answer is that the echo is NOT what puts it into the comm log. How the
plugin works is that, first, it uses echo to put:
[Tracker]:My stuff goes here
across your screen. THEN, it has a trigger to match lines that start with 
that fake tag of "[Tracker]:". That trigger uses a command that Fiendish 
put into the comm log called "storeFromOutside", which is there to allow 
plugin writers (or just players) to shove lines of data into the comm log.

So what we really need is for the "non-channel echoes" options to include
storeFromOutside, and the best way to get that is via an enhancement
request to Fiendish (I'll post one to the github site).

Unfortunately, with the way that storeFromOutside works, there's also no 
way to discriminate between a storeFromOutside from Mendaloth's plugin 
vs one from Bast's plugins (or anyone else's), so it would be an all-or-
nothing proposal. This is really a limitation in the CallPlugin syntax.

Mendaloth Tracker + Fiendish Aard Channels

Thursday, May 31, 2018 @ 00:30
I use Mendaloths Tracker which is a fake channel I dump log data into that
I don't want to spam channels with.  If you don't know how it works,
in a nutshell it uses Aardwolfs "echo" command.
 
I also use Fiendish's Aard Channels plugin which comes default with AardMUSH
and utilize tabs.  So I have one for All, Group, and Clan.  I noticed that
tracker @x208Repop @x247caravan @x208(@x24700:27:11@x208)
the default tab, All, does successfully collect the Tracker channel (echo)
which is great.  But I want to create another tab just for Tracker logs.
I noticed that "echo" is not an option in Tab Capture Settings > Edit Channel
Captures, and even if I enable every one of them, Tracker (echo) still does
not show up.
 
Is there a way to get echo's to show up in a custom tab?  Or is that something
hardcoded to the default tab which is why it's showing up there, but not the
custom tab with all channels selected?
 
Thanks, Cytan
New Plugin: Contrast Generator

I've written a new plugin, Contrast Generator.

What this plugin does is generates a table of contrasting colors against your
chosen color, ranked from best contrast to worst (default displays top 20).
This can be extremely useful in highlighting text, writing your own
ColourNotes() so they are readable, and I believe useful for picking out colors
to design your own theme with Fiendish's theme plugin.

Right now, it only focuses on HTML colors. In the future, I may consider adding
xterm support so you can see what pairs well with your chosen color on
channels. I'm not sure yet.

The way it works is it takes the luminance value of the two colors (yours and
the next on the table) and returns a contrast ratio. The higher the contrast
ratio, the better the contrast. These contrast ratios range from 1:1 to 21:1.

You can find the link here:
https://raw.githubusercontent.com/AardCrowley/Aardwolf-Scripts/master/Contrast_Picker.xml

To install, just go to the link above, Select All, Copy, Paste into your editor
of choice, Save As... xml file, and then import it into MUSH.

Happy MUDding, and happy Color Picking!

My Windows 10 color scheme is set at "automatically pick an accent
color from my background" and MUSHclient is colored the same as
File Explorer, for example.  When MUSHclient is the active application
the title bar has the right color.  When it is inactive, the title is white.
The same behavior as File Explorer.
The scroll bars appear to have no color change in either application
on background change or when active or inactive.  Seems to be doing the
right things for my configuration.
