I've had reports that the Beta runs extremely slowly on computers that have a video card around the level of a Geforce FX 5200. If you experience MAJOR lag please post with what video card you use.

I have (re)released the Beta 2.0.4 after fixing some minor bugs. This patch might have fixed the graphics problems as well. Re-download the beta if you already got it before the 24th of July.

Just in case it hasn't been said yet (or enough), I just wanted to say thank you for efforts with all of this, Jahara. I hope that your efforts are recognized by people higher up on the totem pole as well.. *imagines what could happen with Jahara having more control*

Joking aside though, I use mmapper all the time and I almost always recommend it for new players. Some long-timers may argue that it hinders "imagination" or keeps you from "learning arda the real way"... but I have found it extremely helpful in aiding new mumers. Specifically, I have noticed some better retention with new accounts/new mumers for those that get everything working correctly with the mapper and their client.

To me, it is a way to bring the learning curve down (at least a little bit). Its easy for us long time mumers to forget how much time and effort it takes for "mud virgins" to get a grasp on where they are, where is safe, where to xp, so on and so forth.

Anyways, I'll stop rambling. Just wanted to say thank you though. Your efforts toward mume and mmapper are deeply appreciated by at least one text addict.

Beta 6 has been released.

Fixes:
* draw door names checkbox fixed
* window position and size are now remembered again

I'm sure quite a few of you have noticed that I haven't been working on MMapper2 quite as much as I was over the summer. The reasoning is that I'm working on a new project, somewhat related to a mapper. I'll be able to provide more details when its near release :-)

He already tried :

I'm assuming since you tried 'change XML' he has the latest version of the mapper under which case I can't say that I've seen this before.

Very old versions of the mapper (dating before XML) had some special follow code. I would suggest the guy downloads mmapper2 again just to make sure he has the latest version.

First time I used MMapper I had no problems.
But now when I want to use it again jmc tells me the following:

#Connecting to remote host.
#Remote hosts address: 127.0.0.1
#Trying to connect..
Connected to remote host

You can't connect more than once!!!

MMapper Log writes this:

[ConnectionListener] Server bound on localhost to port: 4242.
[MapData] cleared MapData
[MapStorage] Loading data ...
[MapStorage] Number of rooms: 23182
[MapStorage] Number of info items: 553
[MapStorage] Finished loading.
[Listener] New connection: accepted.
[Proxy] Connection to client established ...
[Proxy] Connection to server established ...
[Listener] New connection: rejected.
[Proxy] Mud terminated connection ...


Connecting directly to fire.pvv.org or through pandora is working just fine.
What to do?

I found a way around this... by deleting the registry entry for "connection" under mmapper (using regedit) i managed to make it work, though i need to do this every time i restart the mapper. Any ideas? :)

Hey.

I switched to linux recently and I can't compile the mapper. The instructions tell me to use qmake, but I don't have it on my system. I have Qt Version 4.4.3 installed and also the dev package.
I tried:
# qmake-qt4
svn: '.' is not a working copy
Then I tried to just 'make'. It seemed to compile fine, but with 'make install' I get: make: Nothing to be done for `install'.

Not sure what I'm doing wrong. Using Fedora 10.

Mats:

You are doing everything right. Now you just have to run the binary in bin/debug/ directory. ;-)

I guess you could manually copy bin/debug/mmapper2 to /usr/local/bin, so you can easily start it without having to type the whole path every time.

Hey,

is there any way to playback powwow movies so that it also shows the movement and the room you are in in the MMapper? It would be kind of cool feature IMO. Maybe it's already possible, if so, please tell me how.

You could possibly in linux if you pipe the data using netcat and emulate a telnet server.

You run this command:
movie_play <logfile> | nc -p 23 -l

Then in your mapper you change the address of the server to localhost:23 and then connect to your mapper with your client. Your client will then get the output from the log/movie instead of the normal output from the MUME server.
