Mudlet Timers

IsmayIsmay ✭✭✭✭✭ - Grand AchaeanMember Posts: 690 ✭✭✭✭✭ - Grand Achaean
I'm using @Klendathu's Wild Walking script, and am having a bit of trouble with the walking timer. This is what I think is the relevant portion of the script. Every few rooms I move, the script seems not to pause. I end up with the "Now now, don't be so hasty!" message, and have to use the wwgo alias again and again.

ww.setmovetimer = function(time)

if ww.movetimer then killTimer(ww.movetimer) end

ww.movetimer = tempTimer(getNetworkLatency()+(time or 0.3), function ()
ww.movetimer = false

Does anyone know how to fix this without breaking it? I'm afraid to do much with it because I haven't done any work with timers yet.
Give us shop logs!

Pretty please...

    Have you tried to up the 0.3 to 0.4 or 0.5, to see what happens?

    You'll want to check the calls to that function to make sure they're not passing a value that would be used in place of the 0.3.

    If you don't have celerity, and aren't Mhun, you can only move two rooms per second, so want a delay of about 0.5 seconds.

    Your system latency might be affecting it, timers can be somewhat fickle. With the advent of timeframe for quickly flipping the state of variables, I might redo some of the wildwalker script to address it.

    For now, as Utianima suggests, up the value of time to 0.5 or so... there will be a line somewhere in the script that says something like
    local time = 0.3

    Where can I find this script, btw? Don't see it in your signature @Klendathu.
