MUTT(tm) is available in several flavors:
If you want a free MUD client - that supports a scripting
language, triggers, hotkeys and cursor key navigation -
without the overhead of a fancy GUI, or the drawbacks of a toolbar
(forcing you to repeatedly switch between keyboard and mouse),
Lite is the one you'll want.
If you just have to have ANSI color support and/or a fancy UI,
Live is a MUD client that
provides dialogs for easy configuration, a built-in script editor and
a number of other new features.
If you want a 32bit MUD client, with DLL support for 3rd party addons,
Elite is the way to go.
Still in its design phase, the
MUD client will offer 3D roaming and multimedia effects.
for tf, TinyMUSH and FurryMuck users, provides MUD client addons.
addon for enhanced command aliasing.
- an early draft.
NEW with MUTT(tm)
and feedback from users.
MUTT's Mud List
Quite a few people have offered to be beta testers for Live and Elite.
Thank you - I appreciate the offers! However, due to the number of requests,
I am limiting beta releases to those who can excersize MUTT's scripting
If you would like to receive a beta license, please contribute
some interesting MUTTER(tm) scripts - if they exhibit an understanding
of how MUTTER scripting works, or if they exercise a unique feature
of MUTT(tm) - you'll be added to my beta list.
Please send all script contributions uuencoded to:
Note: Live is not yet available for beta.
At the time of the initial beta release of MUTT(tm) in 1994, my total
exposure to MUD/MUSH/MU* had been less than an hour's worth of
connect time - partly due to a lack of useable Winsock-based MU*
Using telnet clients for MUD'g was a real pain; I found the few
existing Winsock-based MU* clients to be offensively HUGE,
lacking any real scripting capabilities, and were universally single-threaded.
So, I decided to write a MU* client so that I could spend some
quality connect time and check out what all the MUD hype was about
I wrote the first beta over a weekend - creating my own C-like scripting language
and supporting multi-threaded connections - all within a 32K binary footprint.
If you find this app useful, great!
