[ macros setmacro deletemacro showmacro macrolist target targets ]
When DUMII receives a command from you, it checks the first
word to see it if is the name of a macro. If it is a macro
name, the macro's text is substituted for the macro name and
the rest of the command line is given as an argument to the macro.
The macro's text can contain "$*", which is substituted with
the macro's argument when the macro is used. If the macro's
text doesn't contain "$*", any arguments to the macro are added to
the end of the line. The macro's text can also contain "$0",
"$1" ... "$9", which are substituted with target 0 to target 9.
"$e" and "$t" are set whenever you receive an esp or tell message
to the sender of the message.
Many commands can be given by the same macro, just separete them
with ":". If you want to write a ":", "$" or "\", just write a "\"
before the character.
Commands to manipulate macros:
SETMACRO <name> [TO] <text> - defines a macro.
DELETEMACRO <name> - removes a macro.
MACROLIST - display the macro names.
SHOWMACRO [<name>] - display a macro's text, without
argument it shows them all.
TARGET <nr> - shows target <nr> and clears it.
TARGET <nr> [TO] <text> - set target <nr> to <text>
TARGETS - display the targets.
- setmacro x say $*, I said!
"x No" will then make you say "No, I said!".
- target 0 AdA
- setmacro y me give@me %$0 the finger! : say Die coward! : kill $0
- target 0 MiJak
"y" will then make you attack MiJak in a more colourful way...
- setmacro xxx say \\\$ can be used to say \$.
SPECIAL MACRO NAMES:
- "_login" is a special macro that is automatically used when you
login to DUMII. That can be used if there is some special command
you always want to do when you connect, like looking at the who
list or taking a peek at the high score list.
- "_reconnect" is used like "_login", but it is used when reconnecting
after being braindead.
- "_recreate" is called after a recreation.
- When using putty (and some other clients), pressing F1-F12,
INS, DEL, PGDN, PGUP, HOME or END will make DUMII try to
execute a command with that name. By using macros, any command
you wish can be executed in that way.
The cursor keys make DUMII try to execute NORT, SOUT, EAS and WES.
In the rules section you can read:
"It is forbidden to use macros and triggers that benefit your
character in relation to other players.". This means (among other
things) that you should not write a macro that helps you walk
from one place to another.
