I rencently created my own plugin using the plugin wizzard, so it basicly only has a bunch of triggers and a few variables but when I tried to add it to another computer of mine with mush it keep giving me this error line:

Line 17: Plugin "id" field must be unique for this world (problem in this file)

Any ideas?

Open the plugin in a text editor.
generate a new unique ID (using /World.Note World.getuniqueid) or, add your script prefix to this
World.Note World.getuniqueid

and paste that in the ID slot of the plugin (youll see something that looks similar to the thing you just made).

Your problem is you have two with the same ID, maybe you copy/pasted the plugin, or whatever else. Just make a new Id and youll be alright.

If you edit the plugin in a text editor, like Notepad, you will see something like this:


<plugin
   name="PluginName"
   author="Your Name"
   id="7eaa81cf0b60c200a52ba2a9"
   language="VBscript"
   purpose="Plugin description"
   date_written="2003-04-13 14:32:22"
   date_modified="2003-05-01 09:55"
   requires="3.37"
   version="1.3"
   >


The "id" line is supposed to have a unique hexadecimal ID that identifies this plugin. Sounds like you have omitted it, or have a clash with another one, for some reason.

Using the MUSHclient command window, (or immediate window) you can get another one like this:


/world.note getuniqueid


Then copy and paste the resulting ID to replace the one in the plugin.

Here is a batch I generated, however you really should use one of your own. If everyone borrows these they won't be unique any more ...

Alright that works! Thank you, but now I'm getting a new error which is:

Line 47: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\My Pictures\MUSHclient\worlds\plugins\constants.vbs contains an invalid path. (include file not loaded)

I Just barely upgraded to the newest verison of mush, and I installed mush into another directory, also I removed it from the old directory.. so is this what is causing it to go wack? and what do I need to fix it?

Thanks
Hoss

Do you use the constants file?

Either change the path in the plugin, or copy the file to that location.

Depending on where MC is installed. Assuming thats your old path, you need to update it.

I believe you can use relative paths now too. To stop that from happening in the future.

Although I dont know where you would start it from.

Its a file that has all the constants in it.
Its only really used if you set flags with names instead of numbers.

Open the plugin (a text editor, which includes MCs notepad if you prefer) and change the path (on line 47) to reflect it. You shouldnt have to change it past /Mushclient/ since that 'should' be the same. Unless you modified it. You should only have to get rid of the first bit (since MC is no longer in My Pictures I fathom).

This probably should still be valid:
\MUSHclient\worlds\plugins\constants.vbs
You just need to point it to your MC directory.

Just remove it, you probably don't need it.
