Hey there. I plan on starting up a new mud, and have been playing around with various code for the past day or two. I don't know any C, but have taken classes in Java and Visual Basic, and hope to pick up C relatively quickly - Hope being the keyword there. I am looking for as close to a barebones mud to base everything off of as I can, as I would like to make my own original races, classes, skills, etc... but need a mud to base it off of due to my limited knowledge of C. I like the look and feel of ROM 2.4, but need something with more built-in commands...ESPECIALLY editors. I would also like to stray away from anything with blinding colors. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, so thanks in advance!

Well I'd suggest SocketMUD, but you want classes and races, etc. I've played, built, and coded on all 3 major codebases (Circlemud, Rom, and Smaug) and I feel that by far Smaug is my "favorite". There is also SmaugFUSS being worked on (Fixed Up Smaug Source) at smaugfuss.org


[EDIT - 11 March 2008] - The Smaug FUSS site is now http://www.smaugmuds.org/

Why Smaug? Pro's and Con's for any suggestions greatly appreciated :)

Sorry but it's been a while and I really can't list everything off the top of my head right now. First of all, while coding in Circlemud, I noticed that the exit checks to the exit struct were case sensitive. So building an exit North would crash the MUD. Also Circlemud keeps binary player files, so you are unable to edit them at all. (in the shell)

As for Rom, I'll have to get back to you on that...

And yeah, Smaug has some issues I don't like such as starting stats are based on your characters name.

But overall, I prefer (and use) Smaug today. I'll post here if I come across more.

Many are relatively easy to set up, and SMAUG is just about as easy as they come (or so I've found). I work mainly with SWR, a SMAUG derivitive. If you want to avoid the little quirks and annoyances you can, like Zeno suggested, use SocketMUD as it happens to be very well suited for starting bare minimum. However, it leaves you to do a lot yourself, like actually code in classes, races, etc. And you would probably want some form of hashing, which most codebases already provide, but which SocketMUD does not.

So in my quest to try various code bases before beginning, I decided to play around a bit with ROM 2.4 because a mud I used to enjoy a lot was based off of it and I am somewhat familiar with the base commands and overall look & feel. I'm currently trying to install OLC though on Slackware linux and having a hell of a time here during compile, and am hoping someone will be able to help me with this. I'll try to be as specific as possible...
I'm running Rom 2.4b6 from http://www.cmc.net/~rtaylor/rom/Rom24b6.tar.gz and attempting to install Ivan's OLC 2.1 from http://www.mudmagic.com/codes/dl/1499 . Following the readme, I copy patch.olc over into the src directory and run patch < patch.olc

(Stripping trailing CRs from patch.)
patching file Makefile
(Stripping trailing CRs from patch.)
patching file Makefile.linux
(Stripping trailing CRs from patch.)
patching file Makefile.normal
(Stripping trailing CRs from patch.)

does that for each and every line...different file names on each line of course.
so i hope for the best and continue on, copying all .c and .h files over to src and then typing make in Konsole after renaming my makefile to makefile.old and renaming makefile.linux to makefile

in current one and copy over olc.hlp. create the data and data/progs directories, go to areas and type startup &. appears to start with a [1] 2090 . continuing readme, I kill the process and get [1]+ Terminated startup, remove -DFIRST_BOOT in the makefile, delete all .o files, and type make again.

so i go back to areas, type startup & to reload the mud..appears to load. Attempt to connect to it in telnet, trying port 9000, and the connection's refused...Port forwarding's set up right on my router because I was able to connect fine before adding this patch. I'm extremely sorry this is such an insanely long post, but I have been trying to get this up and running for the past two days and am finally throwing in the towel and asking for assistance.

You can always delete your own posts. So the mud did successfully compile? Can you tell me what the main problem is right now? You can't connect? Make sure you're connecting to localhost.

tried localhost, and still get Connection refused. I'm not sure what exactly is happening here...if the problem is from any of those errors I had seen during compilation or if OCL 2.1 is just too buggy or I have a bad download of something?

The delete button should be right next to edit. If not, it's fine.

It's been years since I used Rom, but I think those warnings are normal. This is why I prefer Smaug. There is a project SmaugFUSS, but I mentioned that already.

I have no experience with running a mud on my own computer. Make sure it is running on that port. Paste what "ps ux" shows here.

ip is 66.168.59.95 , and the port should be 9000. Just double checked my startup file and it looks like that's what it should be...

# Set the port number.
set port = 9000
if ( "$1" != "" ) set port="$1"

I beleive that this line:

dave 2554 0.0 0.0 2152 636 pts/1 S 15:27 0:00 sleep 15

means that the startup script is running, but the mud is not, likely a crash. I would suggest try booting in gdb to see what happens.

I'm not familiar with gdb. What would I have to do to do this?

Check Nick's fantastic GDB tutorial:

http://www.gammon.com.au/forum/bbshowpost.php?bbsubject_id=3653


The gist of how to boot:

go to your area directory(does rom have an area? no entirely sure actually) and type

gdb ../src/<executable>
run <port>
