[HELP] TrackerJacker Update Request

1573614223
I hope one of the scripters that look here has the time to update the TrackerJacker script. Right now, TrackerJacker doesn't display a number on a status (i.e. a 'duration' in the context of the script) applied to a token unless the direction != 0.  I'm not sure why Ken L. built this logic in to the script, but I need it to be modified. I need it to support the possibility that the 'duration' number is in fact not a duration, but signifies something else about the condition (e.g. exhaustion levels), and that the condition does have a 'direction' of zero. I hope that makes sense. Is anyone willing to take that on?  I've delved into it myself, but my scripting skills just aren't up to it.

When you say "direction of 0", are you talking about the numbers on a status marker?  If that's the case, the reason is because zero couldn't be displayed on a status marker until very recently. It should be an easy fix if that's the problem.

No. For any given status, TJ requires both a Duration (which is the number that will be displayed on the status marker), and a Direction.  The Direction is how much the Duration will be incremented or decremented per turn. TJ doesn't let me have a status with a numeric duration (i.e. show a number), if the direction is zero.  If you change it with another tool like TokenMod, then every time the Turn Tracker is advanced, the Duration of a status with direction zero is reset to default of no number on the status marker.

Hmm. Ok. I'll try and take a look at it tonight.

I'm having trouble getting TrackerJacker to do the thing you are doing.  What command do you use to add the status?
1574012218
2 ways you can do it. If you don't have a "favorite" setup for the status, you can use: !tj -addstatus [name]:[duration]:[direction]:[message] !tj -addstatus staggered:1:0:speed is halved Or, if the status has been set up as a "favorite", you can use: !tj -applyfav staggered

Right, I got that far, but where should it be showing the number that's getting decremented?

Well, it doesn't show a number if the duration is 1, or if the direction is 0. So my bad, should have given a different example previously.  A better one would be: !tj -addstatus staggered:9:-1:speed is halved And then choose a marker for the status.
