I feel pretty stupid for posting about this, because given the time I've put into trying to figure this out, you'd think I'd at least be able to know whether it can be done. Then again, it's 4:30 am, and I've been up goin' on 48 hours!

Anyway. In Zmud you could use the capture command in triggers, which was particularly useful for separating out things like channels. You'd put in something like #capture channels and the channel name (like [ooc], [ic], etc) and it would all show up in a neat little window at the top of the screen. How can I configure Mushclient to do this? I'm losing conversations from channels and tells left and right when I'm fighting and I'd love to know if I can fix that.

Easiest solution is probably designing a trigger for each channel to have the text sent to notepad. There should be plenty of exampls handy if ya search the forum for notepad or channel.

I've been wanting to do jsut this.
My kludge is to use triggers... if you name a trigger, it creates it's own notepad window, and if you don't name the trigger it goes to a generic notepad window.
So ig you have a trigger for says, e.g.

^(\*w) says .* to you^
called Says

,all the output that matches will go to a notepad called "says"


^(\*w) pages .* to you^

^(\w*) whispers .* to you^

which are un-named, would both go to the same un-named window.
I also find it helpful to have a different sound for each trigger so i know which window is up-dating

Do you think that a plugin which stores channels and then recalls them with a command would be useful? Like, you type "chanrec", and it displays what happened since the last command, or since you started logging:
Poromenos says 'hi!'
Poromenos tells you 'are you there?'
Poromenos: Hi all!
etc etc...
Of course, the channel triggers would be customizable... It would capture anything you specified, and designing it should be a piece of cake... I can give it a shot if you'd find it useful...

I have started work on a VB program (similar in concept to my super progress bar, recently posted) which would let you hive off channels into separate windows, in little boxes. In other words, into a totally separate program.

However the colour progress bar itself shows the general idea.
