More Health Bar help needed...

Now, as it stands, the health bar is great for personal use. However, when I'm using it, I can't see the normal health bar for anyone in my group; it looks like this:

[name]: [===|===|===|===]

This is needed for certain times, as there are more then a few classes that are able to heal, or when groupmates need to know when to run, or to rescue their groupmates.

So, is it possible to only have that appear when it isn't MY name that shows up on the standard bar (As shown above)? What I was thinking is perhaps there might be a way I could have that bar show as well as the new health bar, but whenever it locks onto my name (Which would have to be specified I would guess), it would just erase that whole line. But when it has someone elses name there instead of my characters name, it will keep it there.

Thanks.

All that is possible, one way or another. Do you know your friends' health from the MUD output? If not, you can use the chat system to send messages to each other. There is an example of doing that in the chat documentation.

Basically you use chat to send a custom chat message number to your group, which they can then detect and update their status bars.

Well, after an intense session of installing plugins I may never use, and examining the help files for them - including the chat which I believe you were referring to... I came up with nothing. Call me simple, but... I have no idea what you're talking about. I think you need to lose a few IQ points, then come and talk to me...

There are people here who would like to help you, but we need more information to give a better answer.

If you said how you know your own health (eg. example output), and how you know your friends' health (more example output) we can reply more specifically.

Most stuff can be done one way or another, but since output from MUD to MUD varies greatly, it is unlikely simply installing a plugin will totally solve your problem.

If I understand correctly, this may be what you need... I suppose...

Your health is indicated the same way that your groupmates health is indicated; the bar. So, full health:
[name]: [===|===|===|===]

[name]: [===|===|=--|---] <---- Getting closer to death

And so on. That's seen for you when you're battling against someone else, and when you're in a group; in the latter case, you see the groupmates health whose taking the damage (Leading the battle).

Now, if I worded it wrong in the first place, I'll try again;
What I was thinking is when I'm in battle by myself, and it captures this:
MYcharacter: [===|===|=--|---]

It won't show the bar. But if it captures this:
Poorguyleadingthebattlethat'sinmygroup: [===|===|=--|---]
It WILL show the bar.

In that case, it seems rather simple. You want to capture something like:


Nick: [===|===|=--|---]


and show it on the status line, but not:


Tatewaki: [===|===|=--|---]


This trigger below should do it, you don't need any scripting.

Just copy and paste into your trigger list.

See this post if you don't know how to do that:

http://www.gammon.com.au/forum/bbshowpost.php?bbsubject_id=4777


<triggers>
  <trigger
   custom_colour="1"
   enabled="y"
   match="^(?!Tatewaki)(.+): \[[=-]{3}\|[=-]{3}\|[=-]{3}\|[=-]{3}\]"
   regexp="y"
   send_to="3"
   sequence="100"
  >
  <send>%0</send>
  </trigger>
</triggers>


What this does is match on:


Name: [===|===|=--|---]


However excepting the name Tatewaki (just change that bit in the trigger to be what you want).

The other convoluted stuff is matching on groups of = or - in lots of 3. You could probably simplify that a bit if you wanted.
