I'm not understanding the problem. You didn't want to be able to to look south?

look without an argument returns WIN

it SHOULD return the room desc, etc.

now, when i type look in a direction, at an object, at a character, etc. i see that description. but look, without any argument, returns WIN

When %arg% is empty, then ' is still a substring of 'test, which is why your trigger is firing. Change your if condition to be:

if %cmd.mudcommand% == look && %arg% && 'test /= '%arg%

THIS works...

if %cmd.mudcommand% == look
switch %arg%
case compass
%echo% WIN!
break
default
return 0
halt
break
done
else
return 0
end



it allows a mortal to look at the object (magic compass) and get WIN, allows him to look without argument and just see the room, allows him to look at anything specific and see the description..


the IF with the %keyword.contains('%arg%)% still triggers the command (or mud command) without the argument... try this bad boy::

set compass 'compass
if %cmd.mudcommand% == look && %compass.contains('%arg%)%
%echo% WIN!
else
return 0
end


type look with your mortal and you'll get WIN! am I missing something in my if statement?

and no, i'm not using the /= %arg% logic, that stinks

Sorry, I hadn't realized that Rhade's message hadn't gone through.

But, yes, this is one that catches me every time! I love what I call "Fizban's Fix" especially since I've been in a room with a mob looking for /=king. If you tried talking in this room, the mob would talk about the king if you mentioned asking, talking, walking, killing or many other things.

However, as Rhade says, when you change "look {noarg}" to "look '{noarg}", you've now changed that noarg to an arg that matches your criteria since "look ' " is part of "look 'compass".
