So after a while of searching, I can't seem to find the answers to the questions I have.

I'm currently working on a mud where I've recently added MXP support to it as well as some other things. One issue that's come to my attention is that for some reason sending the echo on buffer after entering a successful password doesn't seem to turn echos back on, at least for MUSHClient users. Could this be related to receiving multiple ON messages, and for some reason toggling echos back off?

I've seen some people posting some debug messages like their IAC receive messages and such, and I was wondering if that's available as an option in MUSHClient to help in debugging that issue?

Another problem I'm having is when using the MXP setting for the auto-login portion of MUSHClient seems to hide (not send?) the prompt on my mud to the player. For some reason though, on a copyover/hotboot the prompt is displayed again. I'm not sure how to go about figuring out the cause behind this, since if I use a different auto-login method the prompt will only be hidden until the player uses a command such as look, once.

I think these days that multiple identical IAC commands are suppressed as per the RFC.

You might want to turn on packet debug and see what is going on.

I'm not sure what you mean by hide the prompt on my mud.

How would I go about doing that?

I mean that the prompt is invisible, and doesn't even get shown to the player. It doesn't display anything at all, it's as if it's just sending a blank line.

Not sure exactly what you mean, but the codebase is SMAUG 1.4a with basically every fix applied outside of G++ compiling. I am also using Kavir's Protocol Snippet to add support for MXP, as well as everything else that comes with the snippet.

So, that picture actually *does* have a prompt displayed. SMAUG doesn't show anything but > on the prompt line unless hp, mana or move are below 100%.

Ooo, I started looking for that and I found the issue in the code was related to where the display_prompt function is called. The codebase sets a cmd_suppresion prompt variable that will show absolutely nothing because there is only an if check to make sure it's NULL before printing a prompt.

Not exactly sure why it only happened when the MXP auto-login feature was used, but honestly it's a dumb problem in the code that's been fixed. I believe it's also fixed the issue I was having with the command echoing as well.

Thanks for all the help guys!

If it's still an issue - or for future reference - go to the Edit menu -> Debug packets. Each incoming / outgoing packet is written to a notepad window in ASCII and hex.

Don't leave it on too long or things may slow down.
