I'm going to have to wipe my drive and I need to know what files I need to save in order to keep all my variables, aliases, etc. Also, where do I put these files once I reload MUSHClient?

Just copy your MUSHclient folder. It's entirely self-contained.

Does the current installer assume you want a "portable" version since XP was deprecated? I figure that if any links to the sqlite database are broken, global settings will need to be restored manually..

However, yeah, everything's pretty self-contained anyway, and so long as scripts don't reference other files based on absolute path, the entire thing should be able to be moved around at will.

As long as you save your world files to the "worlds" directory where MUSHclient is installed then you should be good to go.


You could test by backing the MUSHclient folder up to a USB drive, restore to a laptop or something, and make sure it works there.
