MUD client for Mac

Postby gtkaca » Tue Jul 08, 2014 8:28 pm

ok guys, previously I used MUSHclient to play SoI and MUD on Windows but now I'm stuck with Mac here. I'm sure some of you use Mac too, whats a good client to use here?

There are GMUD clients that work for OS X, and I swear by GMUD. I've used GMUD for over ten years. In terms of bells and whistles, I can't really comment because I don't use them. However, it works and it's simple. That's why I like it.

I can't recommend Atlantis enough: http://www.riverdark.net/atlantis/

All the autologging, highlighting etc is very easy to use and it's easy to customise to your own preferred set up. I haven't used anything else since Icarus recommended it years ago.

This is not a Mac problem, but since I've lost my CMUD and my purchase email (it was actually Lasair that bought it for me, lo all those years ago, and I wouldn't dream of troubling her about it now), I've been using Mushclient and MY GOD - it is so convoluted and difficult to use by comparison to Zmud and Cmud.

I imagine it's a breeze for people who have actual programming experience though.

I have actual programming experience.

That by no means indicates that I am a good programmer. Passable, but with large gaps in my knowledge of what should be basic stuff.

I spent over an hour trying to get a simple timer to work on MUSHclient. I failed.

I'm half tempted to revert to whatever ancient version of Zmud (3.something?) is freely available.

I've been using Atlantis for years, and no problem here. I could recommend it for SOI.
