Waverous LambdaMOO is a fork of the LambdaMOO server version 1.8.3.

To quote the original project: "LambdaMOO is a network-accessible, multi-user, programmable, interactive system well-suited to the construction of text-based adventure games, conferencing systems, and other collaborative software."

Waverous LambdaMOO:

  • has been ported from C to C++
  • adds Expat for XML parsing (kudos to Ken Fox for his file)
  • has conditional compilation via choices when you run ./configure (i.e. --without-fup --with-fileio --with-expat --with-forked-checkpoints)
  • Has an extensively updated set of automake and autoconf files

Waverous changes were incorporated into Stunt.io

In 2013 I duplicated the C++ porting work I did for Waverous for Todd Sundsted's clone of the LambdaMOO server. At that point I stopped work on this project.
