A MUD client: MUSHclient

Program: MUSHclient

License: He has placed the code under this license: http://www.gammon.com.au/forum/?id=7744

Description: MUSHclient ... FreeWare MUD client

Website: http://www.gammon.com.au/mushclient/mushclient.htm

Nick Gammon recently opened the source of MUSHclient. The source code is availible at: http://www.gammon.com.au/files/mushclient/src/ The most recent version is 4.18. I'm trying to talk Nick into making the client portable, but not sure how far I'll get.

If you have anymore question, I'll answer the best I can.

heh I'll try to explain it

heh I'll try to explain it and then I'll give you two sites that might do a better job.

MUSHclient is basicly a glorified telnet program used to connect to a text based game. It allows the use of ANSI color, macro, triggers and scripting in various languages.

What a MUD client is from Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MUD_client

And for those of you that don't know, a MUD: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MUD

as yes, the old (or not so

as yes, the old (or not so old) mushclient. this is a favourite of mine, but take note it sits on my drive non-portable. the launcher would have to redirect its normal reg key, if it has one, and the association key which is generated on startup of ther app. so if and when somenone makes a launcher, just remember to account for that, as the httrack portable i have from a while ago didnt.

But there’s no sense crying over every mistake,
You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

MudMagic then?

http://www.mudmagic.com/mud-client/

GNU Lesser licence, available in Windows, MAC and Linux flavours.

There is also a non install version for USB sticks which is a bit weighty at 28M but I was able to get it down to 16 using UPX (no --brute option) and removing a bunch of language files.

I realise I could just throw it on the stick and use it but it would be nice to have it integrated into the launcher.

not really, but if someone

not really, but if someone will edit and recompile the source code to take out the auto-associate, then it suddenly becomes very possible...

update on the latest available source and new info on registry

This forum entry http://www.gammon.com.au/forum/bbshowpost.php?id=9260 on the MUSHClient website is titled "MUSHclient global prefs migrated from Registry to database". Is it possible that could helpful in the problem you are referring to?\

This entry: http://www.mushclient.com/forum/?id=7733 , refers to the move to freeware licensing.

ALSO, the source for versions from 4.01 -> 4.40 are available at:
http://www.gammon.com.au/files/mushclient/src/

Aha! Now that the source is

Aha! Now that the source is open, the bug with the associations fixed and the settings now stored in a file, it should be easy to do this one. Someone can just make a launcher and have it set the current directory to Data\settings (but would first have to copy DefaultData\mushclient_prefs.sqlite to that directory)and it should be done. I would do it, but I haven't got a lot of free time at the moment. If no ones done it by the time I'm free, I'll do this.
EDIT: Oh, and also pass /noregister to the MUSHClient command line. (Link, read number 8.)
