There are two tutorials that are available. If you prefer text over video then you can read a complete sample MUME session. Otherwise, scroll down and watch the YouTube tutorial.
Quick tips for watching the videos:
- Watch in fullscreen and high quality; otherwise the text is hard to see
- Confirm that annotations are enabled (the boxes of text that pop up throughout the videos)
- Pause and review specific commands as needed!
You can switch videos in the playlist with the hamburger at the top right corner, or watch them on YouTube instead.
