Mud Clients

(Time to start this page)

Mud clients are telnet clients that were created specifically to play MUDs/MUSHes and MOOs with. In general they make your playing experience more comfortable. Differences between the clients are large, with some adhering closely to a dos/*nix style of windows, whereas others are highly graphical with multiple windows and buttons, and thus what mud client is most pleasant for you is a highly personal choice.

Windows

Jaba Mud Client - (freeware) Fairly minimal client, but with the ability to divide the screen in several windows, and send incoming text to these windows. It is possible to combine a timer and action to have a 'where' or 'who pk' list that autoupdates and shows in a separate window. Also, there's no limitation to the keys you can bind, which allows people with a laptop keyboard to, for example, use the tab key to toggle between typing regular text and commands, or using awsd / jikl to walk and scan around.

Mud Master 2000 - (freeware) Very flexible client with many features, especially with regards to scripting. One of the major advantages of this client is that there are a large number of available scripts for syntax examples and ideas. Another is that the client itself is freeware. This program uses the Windows Installer and by default creates a number of subfolders in My Documents for the files it generates.

Pueblo/UE - (freeware - open source?) Windows mud client with full Tintin++ implementation.

MUSHclient - (freeware) Window's MUD client that was recently made open source, and free for anyone to use and download. Supports seven different scripting languages, along with all the standards for all modern clients (tab complete, mapper, alias, triggers, key binding, etc). A feature unique to MUSHclient is the built in spell checker. The client also has a range of plugins available to use.

Mac

*nix / *Bsd

tintin++ - (freeware) Console client that has no limitation to the keys you can bind, which allows people with a laptop keyboard to, for example, use the tab key to toggle between typing regular text and commands, or using awsd / jikl to walk and scan around.
