mmapper2

Postby Koft on Fri Oct 14, 2016 6:20 am

When I now returned to Mume I started using Jaba MUD client with mmapper2 aka the bundle we find on these pages.
It works perfectly on all the 3-4 new characters I've made.

So I want to unretire a old character I have and find that the mapper does not work on this character.
I log on new a character and it works perfect.

I have tried to 'change encoding latin-1' since that is the character enconding I choose when making a new character.
I have also done change brief off; change spam on ; cha xml on

the mapper shows the yellow arrow when I move around but it does not "move on the map". Seems like it does not find the room I'm in.


The character that its not working on was retired 15 years ago so I guess its some changes that have been done "lately"

Any tips?


Edit:
I messed around some and suddenly it seems to sync...
It still got problem with Osse's Well.....

Is not the characters strange. Is it supposed to be ¨ ?

And if the mapper does not work, one of the things in my whois usually fixes it.

Sync issues in specific rooms/areas can be because something changed in the room since the map was created.

Thanks. I did follow the steps in your whois. Did not do the trick.
Did mess around and suddenly it worked. :p
Actually what did the trick I can not pin point. :roll:

Would love to be able to 'examine' items in shops. Sometimes it's not entirely clear what an item does, eg. can I use a saddlecloth in addition to a leather saddle, or is it one or the other... or more RP-related issues like "will this item fit with my character's look". Maybe 'inspect' item could be a decent command for the shop (I would expect 'examine' to not be compatible with shops, much like 'show' replace 'consider'?)

You mean basically getting the description of the item?

More than that sounds like something for the identify spell (or actually using the item to see what effects it seems to have).

Yes, to get the description is all.

I guess (in theory anyway) it could be included in 'show'. So that 'show 1888' gave both the 'examine' and 'consider' data. Hm. Put that on the idea board ingame? :)

Yes, that does actually sound like the best way to get this into the game without it costing too much work to do. Posted the idea. Thank you!
