Examples

  1. We will display the coordinates of the mob in separate variables, when the player clicks on it with the right mouse button.
MOB_CLICK:
  mcl_regex:
    mob-type: zombie
    actions:
    - MESSAGE=%moblocation%
    - REGEX=input:{%moblocation%} regex:{[^,]+}
    - 'MESSAGE=world: %group00%'
    - 'MESSAGE=x: %group10%'
    - 'MESSAGE=y: %group20%'
    - 'MESSAGE=z: %group30%'
    - 'MESSAGE=alfa: %group40%'
    - 'MESSAGE=beta: %group50%'
  1. We display a filtered message: The player enters the text: $$Hello world! The chat appears: Hello World!
MESSAGE:
  msg_regex:
    mask: '$$'
    type: START
    source: CHAT_INPUT
    actions:
    - CANCEL_EVENT=true
    - 'REGEX=input:{%message%} regex:{(\$\$)(.*)}'
    - 'BROADCAST=%player_name% : %group02%'
  1. Applying several REGEX actions in one activator: Suppose there is a text:
    $$Hello world! *My coordinates are: world, 100,90, -124,175.3,25.23
    And we need from the text to get Hello world!, and then coordinates world,100,90,-124,175.3,25.23 in separate variables.
MESSAGE:
  msg_multi_regex:
    mask: $$
    type: START
    source: CHAT_INPUT
    actions:
    - CANCEL_EVENT=true
    - REGEX=input:{%message%} regex:{(\$\$)(.*)\s(\*)(.*):\s(.*)}
    - 'BROADCAST=%player_name% : %group02%'
    - REGEX=input:{%group05%} regex:{[^,]+} prefix:my_2_
    - 'MESSAGE=world: %my_2_group00%'
    - 'MESSAGE=x: %my_2_group10%'
    - 'MESSAGE=y: %my_2_group20%'
    - 'MESSAGE=z: %my_2_group30%'
    - 'MESSAGE=alfa: %my_2_group40%'
    - 'MESSAGE=beta: %my_2_group50%'
