Mudlet GUI: 20-Jan-2011

Last night I decided to have another play with Mudlet, and it was a lot easier than I remembered.  I was mostly doing it because I wanted to try out the latest version of Mudlet, and figured it would be a good time to check if ATCP was still working - lucky I did, as it seems I missed a couple of things when I rewrote my negotiation code.  So I fixed my ATCP implementation and created an energy bar script to test it, using Vadi's fancy gauge stylesheet to make the bars look prettier.

I'm not sure I want to spend the time creating a full GUI like my MUSHclient one, but I may see if I can polish this a little - enough to hopefully get some GW2 players interested in creating their own.  At the very least I'd like to add an avatar and maps.

Disclaimer: My ATCP implementation only supports a single package - a custom MSDP package, which transmits the MSDP data using the ATCP format and telnet option.  I only added this for clients that support ATCP and not MSDP (primarily Mudlet, although the PHudBase client has the same issue).


  1. KaVir do you have a public download for this GUI?

  2. Nope, I never kept a copy, I ended up creating a full Mudlet GUI based on the MUSHclient one. That version downloads automatically when you connect to GW2, feel free to copy the script.

  3. Cool, thanks man. You've contributed a lot to the community, and our MUD has benefitted greatly, so thanks for everything.
