MUDing is FUN!
These are my tintin++ files and profiles for 3 Kingdoms: http://3k.org/
git clone email@example.com:pladdy/mud.git
- this has been tested to run on a Mac; I've made some efforts to make it nix' compatible but it might need more love
Install deps on osX
- This might work on ubuntu/fedora which use apt-get and yum...not tested yet
- Unix based OS
- all tested and built on macOS (Yosemite then Siera)
- cygwin seems to work if you're using windows (tested by Wag)
- Perl; this should already be installed with non Window OS'. Text parsing is hard in tintin so I opt to use Perl for some things
- TinTin++ (2.01.2) Mud Client: http://tintin.sourceforge.net/
- Tmux (can install via brew on mac, unsure on cygwin)
- this is only if you want to use the -t option when you './play'
- if you'd rather not, there's a helper script in bin/ that let's you "watch" the map in another pane/window
Install TinTin++ from source
- Download source from http://tintin.sourceforge.net/download.php
- Check install instructions here: http://tintin.sourceforge.net/install.php
- God speed
Setup a profile to play
The profiles/ directory houses profiles. These are the files that handle setting up the session when loggin in with a specific character.
To set up a profile run
bin/create_profile <char name> <guild name>
bin/create_profile gilead angels
./play -p <character name>
Or to have a window for playing and a window for a map:
./play -t -p <character name>
The play executable will automatically search the profiles/ directory for the given character file.
- play : wrapper to start tintin session. ./play -h for help
- watch-map : quick utility to launch tail on the map so i can watch it in the window
- you can pass in a width and a height so that the map will be rendered to that dimension
- if you use the tmux option in play, the tmux session will get a pane devoted to the map
If you want to learn more about what commands are available while playing, check the tin/* README.md files.
