Hello,

I am new to creating muds... I have Windows XP.
I downloaded this: http://www.gammon.com.au/files/smaug/smaug1.4a.sce.zip - 814 Kb - Source (only) for SMAUG server v 1.4a for Win32

And I don't know if that is the correct one...
If it isn't, can someone tell me which to download EXACTLY.
I also downloaded the Area Editor.

If it is the right one, I must make a .exe file of it, right? And how do I make a .exe file of it? And which of those files in that is the area file? So I can edit it with the Area Editor...

Thanks in advance

You should read this:
http://www.gammon.com.au/smaug/howtocompile.htm

and this:
http://www.gammon.com.au/forum/bbshowpost.php?bbsubject_id=2293
just to make sure you know what you're getting into. It's a lot of interesting work, but it truly is a lot of work and you should be aware of all the difficulties involved.

Thanks for the reply, but I am a master in PHP & MySQL, so I know that it is pretty difficult and you need alot of time...

You have me this url: http://www.gammon.com.au/smaug/howtocompile.htm

I already have readed that, but the files mentioned in that, like: commands.dat - commands players can type
skills.dat - skills they can use including spells
socials.dat - socials they can use, eg. "smile"
herbs.dat - herbs they can use
tongues.dat - tongues they can speak in

Are not in this http://www.gammon.com.au/files/smaug/smaug1.4a.sce.zip...

So, maybe I have the wrong one...

Ah. Well, you need to download the whole thing, not just the source.

Go here:
http://www.gammon.com.au/downloads/dlsmaug.htm

You'll want one that's not 'source only'. You might want to get the FUSS package, but I think you'll need a Unix-like environment for it (e.g. Cygwin.)

I downloaded already from somewhere else... And it's pretty great! I Already changed the start up screen... And changed some races and classes. Now second question: When you sign up, and login for the first time you get a message:

[=] February 1998, the Ill month [=]
And then lots of text etc. etc.

Whats the file for that to change? Which file I must change?

Thanks

You change the fighting in fight.c. If you'd grepped for 'demolish' you'd have found it. :)
The title screens are, I believe, help files. Check the code for accepting new connections to see what it does.
The MOTD is a helpfile - surprisingly enough, called 'motd'. :)

If you're a master with PHP, it shouldn't be too hard to trace through most of the functions to find the login messages. It'd do you good, anyway, because you'll get more of a feeling for the code.

There's an awful lot of documentation on these things - you should try searching this forum and the web in general (using e.g. Google), you'll get your answers much faster.

text, text, lots of text...


This is not the MOTD, the MOTD is a different file... You get this message at your first login...

Can someone tell me which file this is? And which file the titles are?

Do you know about the grep command? Are you on Windows or Unix?

Thanks alot! The NMOTD worked, but the I do not mean the first starting screen. After you choose which style you want, for example, you choose RIP style, and then you login, and then you get a message: Place your RIP Title screen here.............................

Or something like that, and that is NOT in the GREETINGS

And I do not know what GREP command is... And I am on Windows XP

Grep is basically a find command. On Windows XP, you can use the search command and use the 'find in files' option. That should tell you where the messages are... as I said before, you're going to have to do this anyhow, so you might as well start now. :-) If you seriously plan on coding for this, you should start tracing through the code, even just the login code, which really isn't that bad especially if you're a 'master' at PHP. Trust me - it will do you loads of good. :) (and save everybody a fair amount of time.)
