Hi Richard.

I have played a couple of muds with hal using, ---- of all things, windows' basic telnet connection, but didn't really find this too satisfactory. I have sinse switched to vip mud and sapi, and have played a couple of muds with it successfully.


Usually I'd just use Hal to read the screen, but in a mud it's important to have the text spoken and read fairly quickly, so there isn't time to switch around and read lines, ---- hence why i prefer to use sapi with vip mud.

In combat, actions simply progress and new lines are written to the bottom of the screen, therefore the best thing I've found to do is read the last line which comes in and keep arrowing down so that I'm reading the most recent entry (sinse I have had occasions where a character has been killed whilst I was busy reading the top of the combat log).

Also though, you should know there is a bit of a problem in vip mud with sapi where by the status line (if any), isn't correctly read.

Luckily, Cx2 of the audiogames.net forum found a way around this, and all you need to do to have sapi read the line showing your hp etc correctly is copy this script into vip mud:

#TRIGGER {[<]*[>]*} {#gag;#say %1} {}


Hth.

Beware the Grue!

Dark.

Hi again.
I have now attempted to use gmud with little success, I think I
imported the map correctly into my Supernova but am not 100% sure as I
don't really understand such things. I have also tried VIP Mud and
have had more success with this.
I have connected to Alteraeon and created a charactor. I get all the
movng around, taking things, talking etc, but combat is beyond me. It
seems to just say that something is around and go through moves before
I have a chance to do anything, I imagined that combat would be
something you controlled. But it happens so fast, faster than I can
read it so I get no chance to do anything. I usually win combats but I
don't know exactly how, as I am ot doing anything,. Is this how it is
supposed to be or am I doing something wrong. I don't understand how I
am supposed to use spells etc if I can't even keep up with all the
moves.
Any help mot welcom, srry if I am being thick.
Cheers
RIchard
