I've tried mush client - wondering why ya'll use it when cmud has a built in spell checker and (apparently) easier to use triggers?

Just curious - certainly not evangelizing - I know a lot of MUSH players like it for some reason or another.  Just not sure why.

Yeah, Agent - my idea is to have a default color scheme with named custom color presets, and then let the user customize to their hearts content.

I'm targeting brand-newbies who aren't really familiar with fucking around with MUD clients but want color. Having mushclient bundled into a zipped folder with a pre-loaded trigger and script file so that all the newbie has to do is unzip it wherever they want onto their computer and start playing.

because CMUD isn't free!

it's not free in terms of 'free beer', nor is it free in terms of 'free speech'.

i'm happy to work for free as in speech, but I'm not going to work for free as in beer.


p.s.
MUSHclient also has a built in spellchecker. it just doesn't have the squiggly red line thing. the biggest feature Cmud has that MUSH doesn't is a really good graphical mapper.

yeah sounds good. we should chat in PM or a different thread.  I've figured out a few ways to optimize what you're trying to achieve by leveraging the plugins architecture.

2 things.


1: Bump.
2: I don't like seeing my "ride" down there, and would instead like to see MOOD.

How do I do this? In "Copy and paste" language please.


go into the XML file, find this:
Code: [Select]
--Riding Status
InfoColour ("black")
Info ("Riding: ",CurrentRiding," ")

Change each instance of Riding to Mood. Including CurrentRiding to CurrentMood.

Feel free to experiment.  The "Info" command takes multiple arguments that are all mashed together. CurrentRiding/CurrentMood holds the text captured from the MUD.

So you could also replace
Code: [Select]
Info ("Riding: ",CurrentRiding," ")with this
Code: [Select]
Info (CurrentMood," ")to save some space.

You can add other variables that are already being captured and are easy to add like Mood. I have comments in the file on how to add more.


@Aruven lol, glad you like it.

Hey, I still play with just TinTin++. I used to use MUSHClient back when I played IronRealms because you actually had scripted combat systems for those games, so I had to have access to something with a little more kick (even though perfectly possible with TT, just annoying).

#substitute

Done.

This is so confusing, I did what you said. I replaced Riding with Mood and CurrentRiding with CurrentMood

Prompt now says "none. Health: 999/999 etc... I"  re installed original thinking I messed it up.

Make sure you have current mood in your prompt or else it won't work and you can probably take out the riding status from the prompt.
I am unable to respond to PMs sent on the GDB. If you want to send me something, please send it to my email.

what slvrmoontiger said. Sounds like you did it correctly, but your mood was not set to anything.

Can you confirm?

you should be able to right click on the link, select Save As, and the file type should already say "XML Document" and everything should work fine.

Your mileage may vary though, depending on what OS and Browser you have. I know folks on Windows Vista have had a problem in years past...

If that still doesn't work, here's a zip file of the current version:
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/6237857/Arma_Infobar.zip

You'll need to unzip it into the  MUSHclient/Worlds/Plugins directory, then proceed w/ step 2.

it says I don't have permission, something about contacting an administrator (with both options). Not sure if this is my laptop's thingy or if it's something else. I have Windows 10.

Oh. It's probably because you installed MUSHclient into C:\Program Files (x86) and yeah, usually you can't download directly into that directory.

Did you try downloading into "My Documents" or "Downloads" and then moving it into the plugins folder?

This thread on the zuggsoft forums might give you a starting point.  Hopefully someone who knows cMUD can chime in. :)

I don't have a character any more and the old image link died. The infobar just shows up below where you type with words in it.

Hopefully some current users can host screenshots, or PM me and I can host them and put back in the 1st post.

Stats greyed out. I've started messing around with my copy to update the colors and format. If I do I'll share it here.

Still as badass today as it was when I started using it in 2013 as a new player. I adored it as a player and I find its even surprisingly helpful when plugged in on my staffside avatar. Three cheers, Agent.
