Executions of Aliases?

In my ancient zMud client, I can make an alias (ie csua = cast suacovisp), and when I type the alias followed by something (ie csua <name>) it will execute the alias with the following statements.
So if I use the above example I can type 'csua <name> <message>' and it'll work just fine.
But when I try to the same in the web client, I cannot get it to work. I just get the following message:
Quote:
cast suacovisp
Who do you want to send a message to? (cast <recipient> <message>)


Can anyone point me in the direction of what I am doing wrong, or does the web client not work in the same way zMud does in regards to executing aliases?

Did you try making the same alias within the game itself? I've had similar issues in the web cliant. I just use in-game aliasing to get around it.

Ah! That works. :)
Odd that they work differently, but good to know that you can use in-game aliases instead.

What is the limit on in-game aliases these days?

Thanks for the info.
Maybe if I drop all "non-directed" aliases from the in-game list and put them in the client, and then only use the in-game aliases for "directed" aliases, I can make do with only 50.

alias x - say hi
x = say hi
x and good morning = say hi

alias x - say hi %1 (or on later version zmud %-1)
x = say hi
x and good morning = say hi and good morning

Ehhm..?
I can make it work in zMud just fine, but I am talking about the web client.
Using your bottom method on my above example of an alias doesn't work in the web client.
