Oops, I just noticed after looking at my message again, I kept writing the
file name as sge.~xt. Of course, what I meant to write was gse.~xt. And
the results were still the same. grin

Subject: Re: [Audyssey] playing Simutronics games via telnet
I will now post my findings regarding this method of connecting to
simutronics games, just after trying to connect using a new character.
I have seen an article similar to the post below, in an issue of audyssey
magazine from a while back. In fact, what prompted me to write my
messages a few months ago to this list regarding playing simutronics games
with a mud client was that, following those instructions given below,
there did not appear to be a file called gse.~xt in the root directory or
any directory for that matter. I then ran a windows search on all files
and folders on the hard drive, and no files of any kind were listed with
the ~xt extention.
After reading chad's message, I decided to try it all again.
So, I just recreated an account, created a character from the website,
selected the wizard front end, downloaded the game launcher and connected
via the wizard front end, and quit to log out. Then, went to the
downloads section of the play.net site, downloaded the Simutronics desktop
game entry, installed it, ran it, selected my character and the wizard
front end, logged in, quit, and then looked for the sge.~xt file in the
root directory of the hard drive. And, like I said, there was no file on
my hard drive with that extention. Also, and finally, I did tripplecheck
to make sure that I have show hidden files turned on in the options view
After looking at the downloads page, the simutronics desktop game entry
program appeared to be the only game entry program around. Perhaps
simutronics has changed something between gemstone III and gemstone IV?
When were you able to successfully log into these muds in the way
Thanks for posting this, and I will monkey around with the other files
listed in the simutronics directories at some point. Maybe all the info
is hidden in another file with another extention. grin
