I tried to open my world file today (it had been working well the past week) when I received an error and an XML Import warning. It wouldn't let me open the world.

This is the third time it's happened within a month, and I have no idea why. It started about the time I used colour triggers in my world though, and I wonder if that's the cause.

My triggers worked fine btw, I was using regular expressions ^.*(words to match).$ all the time.


World1 (MCL file):
Mushclient Unexpected file format (click ok)
XML import warnings - c:\Program Files\MUSHclient\worlds\World1.MCL)
Line 163: Non-printable character, code 15, not permitted for value for attribute named 'match' (problem in this file)



World2 (MCL file):
Mushclient Unexpected file format (click ok)
XML import warnings - c:\Program Files\MUSHclient\worlds\World2.MCL)
Line 130: Non-printable character, code 15, not permitted for value for attribute named 'match' (problem in this file)



World3 (MCL file):
Mushclient Unexpected file format (click ok)
XML import warnings - c:\Program Files\MUSHclient\worlds\World3.MCL)
Line 137: Non-printable character, code 15, not permitted for value for attribute named 'match' (problem in this file)



I'm using:
Mushclient 4.27
Windows Vista


Please help. Thanks.

I would post it if someone would tell me how to open the files and find those specific lines.

Open Notepad.
File > Open > navigate to your worlds folder, change Files of Type: to All Files and you should see all your worlds.

Open one of them, and paste the entire file here.

Depending on your Windows version, you might have to right-click and Open With, since it seems to associate .MCL with Windows Media Center on my system.

Without even counting to line 163 you can see the problem immediately.

match="^.*elude you.$"

What is that strange character?

For what it's worth, Google Chrome isn't displaying it at all on my screen, so I had to copy/paste that line into notepad to see what you're seeing. That looks like the problem to me, yep! Just remove that character manually in the file and it should work.

I edited your post to blank out the password; note that the "encryption" is reversible with well-known procedures so if you leave the password in worlds you paste, you are giving your password to the world.

Yes, as the others said you have slipped in a strange character into your match string. It is hex 0F (15), as reported by the error message.

You need to use Notepad to remove that character from those 3 lines and then you can load your world file again.

Why it is there is a mystery. I presume you copied and pasted stuff from the MUD, and normally they wouldn't send non-printable characters.

If you really need to match that particular character, and you are using regular expressions, you can replace it by:

\x0F

So, your match line could be:


match="^.*elude you.\x0F$"



I am looking at the code in MUSHclient, it shouldn't really save a world file it can't load back in again.
