Configuration Comments

General Comments

  • You need to re-login after enabling ANSI EXTENDED mode to grab new ansi-extended metadata that the game sends immediately after login.
  • The bar along the bottom is your experience bar.
  • Right click in the "COMMUNICATION" window for options. Chats, shouts, tells, guild shouts, and other communication messages go here.
  • The HP/SP bar may not appear until you enter combat or gain/lose HP/SP.

Configuration Features

  • F2 is a sample self-coloring macro. (it uses the "cast_colors" alias)
  • F3 is a sample eat_vitality_paste macro. (it uses the "eat_vitality_paste" alias)
  • F4 is a sample eat_spirit_paste macro. (it uses the "eat_spirit_paste" alias)
  • F5 is a ring-out macro.
  • F9 enables automated hunting. F10 disables automated hunting. No more holding down keys!
    • Automated hunting sends the command defined in the "hunting_macro" variable (see Game -> Configuration -> Variables...) at a rate of once per second.
    • You should change the "hunting_macro" variable to suit your hunting area and style.
    • For more information, look at the "macro_hunt" timer (see Game -> Configuration -> Timers...) -- this is where you would do intelligent decision processing.

MUSHClient Features

  • Most options you'll want to configure are under the Game > Configuration menu.
  • Macros: Note that macros in MUSHClient can only send text to the mud. If you want intelligent macros (i.e.: with wait times, prompts, or other dynamic features), you should set up an alias first, and then have the macro execute that alias.
  • Timers: Timers should be a new concept to the regular Cosrin player. Timers allow for things to be executed at periodic intervals. For example, you could send 'qwf' to the game every 30 minutes to periodically check who is online.
