• Age appropriate but slightly OT

    From Spectre@21:3/101 to All on Wed Apr 12 08:15:00 2023
    So I just found my favourite MUD from 33 years ago has had something of a ressurection. Shattered World, shattered.org 23. For the last something like
    8 months or so, its been somewhat dead, faulty.. So it was nice to drop in
    and see things looking up and working.

    I actually used this thing before I started using BBS. Would jump on the deadly treadly and wheel over to the Monash Uni campus and play all night,
    well till they shut the public room.. ~11:30pm or so. Blast from the past.

    Cool! I had friends who were into MUDs. It's what first got me into Linux:
    I set up a server for friends to run a MUD on. I never got immersed into a MUD, but i did play EverQuest and World of Warcraft up to level 20 before i "called it good."

    What do you use for your client? Plain old telnet? Tinyfugue?

    Once upon a time just a now unknown telnet client, a bit later kermit over local network as it gave the possibility of aliases from memory. Later a variety of terminal software while dialup was possible. More recently putty, and "Portal" using an actual client is pretty recent for me though.

    http://www.gameaxle.com/ if you're interested in looking at it at all. Its
    got plenty of foibles, weird script language not related to anything, and a borland database engine back end which likes to eat itself from time to time.

    Cool! I enjoyed reading your history with different clients. Do i understand correctly that you had some kind of macros running in kermit?

    Portal looks like it has a nice feature set. I like the automapper, graph paper, status bars, and toolbars.

    I'll have to check out shattered one of these days.

    Forgive my ignorance, but the only thing I know about Hungary is the Austro-Hungarian empire, which makes me ask, is it in German?

    The local Kermit install at the Uni had the facility for aliases more than macros... although you could stack commands into the alias... it also had the foible that for some reason it tended to introduce more lag, than a regular telnet client.

    the hungarian language has nothing in common with german.
