Q: "I don't understand anything that's going on! Help!"A: Now that you have successfully created a character, you may still have a hard time understanding the output on your screen. Here are some possible problems and their solutions.
Q: "My screen is scrolling by too quickly. I can't understand anything."A: You can cut the scroll rate in half by typing
compactand getting the response, "You are now in compacted mode." This takes out a lot of blank lines.
Q: "My screen is still scrolling by too quickly. There are a lot of people doing strange things."A: If you are in the Halls of Mandos still, this sort of thing usually means that there has just been a crash, and the whole gameful of people is arriving there and going to different places in the world by praying.
If you are in a town, there may be a lot of activity there at the moment, by coincidence — an expedition assembling, or even a battle going on. Find a quieter location, or just wait until things die down.
Q: "My screen is scrolling because of narrates and songs etc.A: If these
singsare just too confusing or annoying, you can stop listening to them by typing
listen tales(which turns narrates either off or on) or
listen songs(same thing for songs).
Q: "What are all these people narrating about? They are using abbreviations and sometimes strange languages!"A: English is the official language of MUME, and the only language allowed on tales/narrate and in titles/whoises, there are many European players who sometimes communicate in other languages. Perhaps you will eventually learn some Swedish here!
Secondly, people who have played MUME for a long time often use abbreviations and shortcuts, which have to be learned by experience. They may narrate "bsb forsale" or "free fgc" — these are abbreviations for useful items of equipment. "Trolls at Bend" means that hostile player trolls are at a certain Bend in a certain Road which, experience teaches us, is often a battle site.
