I am presently using tintin++ and am playing a tank on Arctic
Well here is my question.. how do I set up an alias to rescue
someone so that tintin continues to try to rescue the person
untill i succeed? Usually this only takes 1 try to rescue but
even the best of us fail the odd time. :)

If anyone could post how to write the loop to keep attempting
the rescue till I succeed I'd appreciate it


Many Thanx

That's pretty simple. Just try something like:
#act {You fail the rescue} {!}

Or whatever your fail message happens to be.

What you need here is an action. You have your normal alias to rescue
the person, and then an action which activites if you fail it.

#act {^You fail the rescue!} {rescue jones}

Substitute the appropriate message that you get when you fail a rescue, and
the correct name of the person to rescue, of course.

Hope that helps!

dont listen to those other guys, here is what you want to do, this is
cleaner and will prevent problems with aliases and multi-executions later.

#al res {#ac {^You fail the rescue!} {RESCUE $Res};#var Res %%1;RESCUE %%1}

the rescue in caps in important because it prevents a re-execution of rescue.
i think u get the idea enough to stick in a clause to un-var the var...

If I were to do this in TF, I would set up a hook on the SEND hook that is
triggered every time text is sent to the mud and have it trigger on the
text "rescue *" and set a global variable to equal the person's name. I
don't know if this is possible to do in tintin++ but I figured I'd try to
help anyhow.

#alias rescue {resc %1;rescuesave %1}
#alias rescuesave {#var rescuesave %1}
#action {You fail to rescue} {resc $rescuesave}

rescue is what u type when u want to rescue somoene
rescuesave is something u dont type, just an alias to set up variable rescuesave
which makes sure the action knows who to save when u fail
You fail to rescue is generic text i used to trigger an action so that when
u fail to rescue, u again attempt to rescue someone who is in the variable
$rescuesave
hence here you would place what ever text u see when u fail to rescue
hopefully you see some text
if not, will have to rework it

should work

I don't have tintin, but I know a little about it. I think a simple method
would be: #action [You fail the rescue.] [rescue xxx]

You probably would no how to make xxx variable for everyone in your group,
or something like that. Hope this helps.

I am have a problem getting tintin++v1.5 to compile and run successfully.
I actually got it to compile but when i try to run it I get an error like:
ERROR ioclt (something about how the ioctl device is wrong)
if anyone has any clues to my prob, please mail me or post.
My account is on a SunOs (i think), the old tintin++v1.2 or something
ran fine and i got the new version from princeton.edu pub/dawagner/mud.
Thanks in advance,
Ben aka Grock/Korg ect :)

: #alias rescue {resc %1;rescuesave %1}

: rescue is what u type when u want to rescue somoene
: rescuesave is something u dont type, just an alias to set up variable rescuesave
: which makes sure the action knows who to save when u fail

now that is messy.

: You fail to rescue is generic text i used to trigger an action so that when


: u fail to rescue, u again attempt to rescue someone who is in the variable
: $rescuesave

so you are always leaving an action suckin up speed? more mess.

oh no? sheesh, i really expected more from a grimne guy - wasn't grimne the

Okay, if he's so wrong, what do you suggest? It's really not
nice to rip apart someone's work without showing him how to do it right....

Not publicity, just a request for enlightenment from someone who
claims to be the grand master know-all of the TinTin server...

- Katie Sehorn/Talia Sedai, who can't run TinTin anyway because she
only has a max quota of 500K......=(

that i DID post a much thorougher method of performing the task.

Actions are stupid. Just pay attention and press ! until you rescue, and
then just bash/kick/hit the hell out of whatever it is you're killing.
Then go bug the imps about something.

Style differnces doesnt consititute being messy.
anyway, I wanted to bring forth something simple to follow the logic of
not all in one line.
I wouldnt have writen the above action for myself, but its rather easy
to follow the logic of.

speed? well, personaly I just rescue people twice on attempting rescue
but I doubt seriously that speed is much affected by a single action
for a single purpose. Maybe if you have an action for ever spell you can
cast for each person you cast for.
Ie, my cleric sets up about 10 actions for everyone i group, and
that doesnt seem to hurt speed.

I have alot of actions on the mud I am on, one of which is to report
my status every time i get healed
I can just see getting healed, attempting to rescue someone, reporting statues
fail rescue, and reporting statues again cause its last command

something like
Someone heals you
rescue someoneelse
report status
you failed to rescue
report status

If you have exactly zero lag, you wont have this problem, else you will
anyway, wont happen often, but one failed rescue is enough to be regreted
