Hello,

Maybe someone here have a solution how to solve my problem with the monster level feature.

I am useing OTX2.9 with THIS monster level feature. Everything works fine except one thing.

I am not able to use
Lua:
getCreatureName(target)
anymore. It still returns a name but its like "Deer [8]" and its useless in scripts if the function is returning the name + the level.

Is there any possibility to make the function returning only the monstername without the level. I do not want to hide the level at the monstersnames.
If there is no other possibility to make it work I have to hide the level.

This is a simple string matching example:
Lua:
s = "Deer Banana [8]"
a = s:match("[^[]+")
a = a:sub(1, -2)
print(a) --> Deer Banana
It matches upto [, then uses sub to subtract the extra space between Banana and [.

Real code you need starts here
Create a simple wrapper function:
Lua:
function getCreatureNameA(target)
    return getCreatureName(target):match("[^[]+"):sub(1, -2)
end
Call the new getCreatureNameA(target) function when you want the normal creature name without level.
