CASE random with #ALARM or #WAIT
 
https://www.zuggsoft.com/zmud/help6/CASE.htm

#CASE %random {Hello} {Hi there} {Hiya} {Hi}
returns a random string from the given list to the MUD.

How do you add WAIT or ALARM for this random commands? If you just put ..
#CASE %random {#ALARM +5 Hello} {#ALARM +10 Hi there} {#ALARM +15 Hiya} {#ALARM +20 Hi}
or
#CASE %random {#WAIT +5 Hello} {#WAIT +10 Hi there} {#WAIT +15 Hiya} {#WAIT +20 Hi}

these wont work, "syntax error".

Do you have a work around for this? maybe with something else than #CASE %random ?

Thanks in advance Zuggsoft forum helpers!

Your commands are incomplete. For alarm, any commands associated with it triggering must be in brackets {}, as in #ALARM +2 {Hi}. For your script, you would have nested brackets, with each case being in a set and then the command to follow the alarm within it's own brackets. Wait has a different syntax and parameter setting. Wait doesn't use +, and the value following is in milliseconds, not seconds, so waiting 2 seconds would just be #WAIT 2000. Also, sequential commands must be separated by a semicolon, so you need one between the wait and what you want sent out.

The following have been tested in CMUD, but should work for ZMUD as well. Both of these wait 2 seconds and then randomly send one of the messages.

Code:

#CASE %random {#ALARM +2 {Hello}} {#alarm +2 {Hi there}} {#alarm +2 {Hiya}} {#alarm +2 {Hi}}

#CASE %random {#WAIT 2000; Hello} {#WAIT 2000; Hi there} {#WAIT 2000; Hiya} {#WAIT 2000; Hi}

Oh! So easy it was! I never had two different brackets in a trigger - only 1 ! Thank You very much mikec130 for help! This will help me in other future triggers too!
