Hey everyone, I am not really too new at this I have worked with someone before that did this but the problem is that me and him got into a fight and thus havent spoken in a few years and doubt that I will be able to again to gain any help (His name was Drakar i believe on the mud i worked on or whatever and if he is looking its me Solaris).

Anyway since then I have to tried to find this site and such and now with luck I found it, but big prob is I have lost what I have learned. I was wondering if anyone would be kind enough to say mentor me/help me out with everything the SMAUG has going on... hopefully someone will.

I possibly would also want to really make my own areas with maybe exceptions to the beginning area (possible editing) and some other areas.

Hi, I think I speak for alot of people when I say this is probably a bad place to ask of such help. While mentoring is nice, the best way to learn in my personal opinion is trial and error. The problem with asking for a "teacher" is that it requires the teacher to take time out of their schedule to exclusively help a complete stranger, a trait that is rare for most people. If you REALLY want to learn to 'code' a mud, I suggest you look for a good beginners book on coding C and using Unix, sit down and do the trial-and-error bit. If you have issues with something, do a search of these forums. You'll find answers to problems ranging from the simplest beginner issue to some of the most complex things involved with SMAUG. Fortunately most of the people who frequent these forums are more then willing to help you with any problem you have. If you can't find help here you could also find help on the SML archives. But unfortunately asking for a 'mentor' will likely be an un-answered call. Hope I've enlightened you a bit and I didn't sound to harsh.

I agree with Boborak - your request is so general it is hard to help.

However there are some useful pages on this site, as well as heaps of forum posts about various things.

For instance, pages on "how to compile", "how to install Cygwin", an FAQ on general SMAUG commands that an admin might use.

The other SMAUG FAQ may also be helpful.

There is an area editor you can download which simplifies writing your own areas.

Doesn't matter where you extract it, but you have the wrong zip. I've posted in your other topic what one you should get.

If you are using Cygwin you need to find your 'root' Cygwin directory (the directory you installed cygwin too), usually c:\cygwin\. From here there will be a \home\ directory. In that directory should be a directory with the name of your cygwin user.

For example: C:\cygwin\home\bobbytheuser\

That is my personal reccomendation as the location in which you should extract the files. From there you will likely have a dist\ directory or a smaug\dist\ directory, which is your mud servers 'root' directory.
