Sometimes my mud response isn't fast enough for the connect text, so I'd like to put in wait time before sending the text. Is there a way to do that?

Make an alias which matches something like "connect_me_now".

Make that alias send whatever you need to connect to the MUD, after a delay (by a small script). Example:


DoAfter (5, "gandalf")    -- username
DoAfter (6, "swordfish")  -- password


Go to the Scripting configuration and put this into the box World Events -> Connect:


Note the exclamation mark. Now when you connect it will call the alias connect_me_now. That will schedule to send your username/password after 5/6 seconds. Of course modify the alias as required to have the delay you want, and send whatever you want.
