Changing the default display was created by Apocmud.org
Hello fellow builders,

I am wanting to update the display on my mud

Currently it displays like this < 309H 493M 264V > but I want it to be more advanced and have it to where it also display more like:

Opponent: / Tank:
2147(2147)Hitpoints 638(638)Mana 261(261)Move>

I want it to display the Opponent(mob) you, or your group, is facing and who the current tank of that Opponent(mob) is.
I have the current code for the setup I have now but not sure exactly how to convert it to what I want. Any help would be much appreciated.

char *make_prompt(struct descriptor_data *d)
{
  static char prompt[MAX_PROMPT_LENGTH];
  char_data *ch = d->character;
      
  /* Note, prompt is truncated at MAX_PROMPT_LENGTH chars (structs.h) */

  if (d->showstr_count) {
    snprintf(prompt, sizeof(prompt),
	    "\r\n[ Return to continue, (q)uit, (r)efresh, (b)ack, or page number (%d/%d) ]",
	    d->showstr_page, d->showstr_count);
  } else if (d->str)
    strcpy(prompt, "] ");

Here's one I prepared earlier which may be of interest:

With a few tweaks, this might be exactly what I am looking for. Thanks for sharing!

This is the one I use:

Chances are the WhiskyTest's is better but I found this one a bit easier to input.
