I've been messing with the chat redirector to move all battle related text to a new window. One of my triggers has this line:

match="^.+ (parries your attack.|has some big nasty wounds and scratches.|is at death's door.|is showing a few grazes.|fails to stun you and you sneak in an attack!|has some big nasty wounds and scratches.|is in perfect health.|has quite a few wounds.|needs a hospital.|has a few minor scratches.|dodges your attack.|is bleeding lightly.|has some small wounds and bruises.|is showing a few battle scars.|has some big nasty wounds and scratches.|has some very nasty wounds.|is gravely injured.|failed to kick dirt into your eyes!|has some big nasty wounds and scratches.)$"


At the rate I'm going, this line will grow quite a bit more.
Will this cause any problems? Should I keep it going, or split it into more triggers?

Here's the entire script I have so far if anyone is interested. It's for Aardwolf.

Not sure about trigger match text size limits but I would make separate triggers for each of those.

I'd make a template trigger with everything set to what I want all the triggers options to be and then copy and paste as many as I need into the plugin then modify each ones match field.

So instead of the above I do this:
<trigger
   enabled="y"
   match="^.+ parries your attack.$"
   regexp="y"
   omit_from_output="y"
   script="redirect"
   sequence="100"
></trigger>
<trigger
   enabled="y"
   match="^.+ has some big nasty wounds and scratches.$"
   regexp="y"
   omit_from_output="y"
   script="redirect"
   sequence="100"
></trigger>

My template trigger would look like this:
<trigger
   enabled="y"
   match="^.+$"
   regexp="y"
   omit_from_output="y"
   script="redirect"
   sequence="100"
></trigger>

I will do that then. It'd be cool if there could be more than one match line in a trigger declaration, but it'd have to have a way to know if it was an and/or etc... Thanks

I don't think there is any particular limit - I seem to recall someone had one a while back that matched against 1000 names. However it isn't necessarily the quickest or easiest-to-maintain way of going about it.
