We've used a combination of MSDP, clever wiring and understanding of our players needs to make a responsive and intuitive interface that's light-years ahead of most free MUD clients. The client is based on the open source mud client/server package phudbase. It utilizes a websocket server listening behind nginx to allow browsers to communicate with the game directly via the telnet protocol. MXP and MSDP are implemented in the websocket server, and the front end is rewritten using twitter's bootstrap for a responsive design. The MUD itself simply uses Kavir's protocol snippet, along with our own modifications.
Please note that, currently, your settings will not be saved - this is a very early release. You should be able to get by easily with the game's built-in alias, target and pipe commands, though. A command reference for playing this MUD can be found here.
Like everything else that is a part of Abandoned Realms, this client is maintained and continuously reviewed for improvement. As everybody plays the game (even the Immortals!) we all benefit from its improvements. Feedback is always welcome on forums.
Hotkeys are keys which send commands to the game in one keystroke. They are available in-client via two main methods.
Please make sure you have NUMLOCK turned on to access this feature.
