Re: PowTTY logging.

I am all too familiar with the very poor logging of PowTTY, but if what you showed was the worst you get you are lucky :) This is an example of how things can look for me, and even this is a somewhat clean/nice example: !# cW Mana:Burning>prac cur prac west Alas, you cannot go that way... prac prac ...

Re: New server linkspeed

I have heard of some people from Eastern Europe that got worse links after the move, but a clear majority weren't really affected (since the difference is quite small) and some got a better link. Of all the Americans I've spoken to they have gotten better links, and in some cases a lot better. I thi...

Re: mirror quest

What spell did you try to cast on the mobs, was it perhaps sleep? All undead mobs are immune to sleep, whether they are found inside the mirror quest or elsewhere. I know that fireball, colour spray, dispel evil and blindness works on the mobs inside, so they are certainly not immune to magic. Regar...

Re: Spear user stats

IMO the only stat you want/need to adapt based on weapon class is STR, so you get enough to wield your weapon of choice. Since pretty much all high damage weapons require 18 STR it means that more or less all warriors are free to choose any weapon skill they want without their stats really making mu...

Re: What would you change?

Science the problem with your suggestion is that it would require a significant amount of effort from people that there is a significant lack of already (that is people with C-code access and time to spend on MUME).

Re: Playing MUME w/o auxiliary software

Why do people keep bringing up the old "the way it was meant to be played" argument when trying to arguing against using specific MUD clients and mappers? That argument is just not true. Some examples of some of the absolute top of management and their contributions towards clients/mappers and their...

Re: Quick Start Quide to Level 1 Fornost

You can only put 3 pracs in ranger skills each level, and 3 extra to start with. So at level 1 you can have a total of 6 pracs in any one ranger skill, 9 on level 2 and so on. So the limits are high enough that one almost never will notice them. I would agree that ride isn't in any way necessary fro...

Re: Metals + Armour spell

The armour percentage value shown while wearing physical armour and using magical armour is in no way equivalent to the same value obtained from only one of those types of abs used. In fact such a value has no real significance at all as far as I can tell, except possibly as a number to brag about l...

Re: Recent changes, any future ahead?

The sudden activity about half a year ago was not a "patronizing speech" to keep people happy, it was a genuine effort initiated by people who really do care. However as far as I know RL imposed itself and those who were driving things simply didn't have time for MUME any more. As far as I can tell/...

Re: Mage / Cleric spells & hybrids

Break door is one spell I forgot to mention as quite common for mages to get, however you won't get away with much less than maxing it (at your level) if you want to be able to cast it without backfiring once you don't have full mana. Call lightning isn't very good at all for exp, it takes too much ...

Re: Mage / Cleric spells & hybrids

More or less all casters (combo and pure alike) get a base set of spells, usually the following (with the number of pracs within the parenthesises): armour (max), shield (max), bob (max), cure serious/light (3-8), remove poison (2-4), create food and/or water (1-2), bless (2), cure blindness (1-2) a...

Re: What would you change?

I like the idea to make the chance of not being able to engage an opponent to be based on the type of terrain one is in currently, also some change to block door (preferably the often suggested give-block-door-hps idea). Something I didn't like at all was the idea to add any real importance to weapo...

Re: Question about experience

It is very possible that a level difference of more than 5, 10 and possibly more steps gives certain reductions in gained exp (I seem to recall something along those lines from some RPG), though I would guess that it is with regards to the level difference between the character and the mob killed (w...

Re: stats or percentage?

9.9999 = 5. Wobbler math? No, it is how the game calculates when it comes to giving bonuses from knowledge in weaponskills and parry. That is each whole 5% in any of those skills gives a bonus, and everything else is discarded. For most other skills and spells it isn't quite that strict, or at leas...

Re: stats or percentage?

I am fairly certain that the shield spell would be equally good in both those cases, since the spell knowledge is assumed to be the same in both cases and as far as I know the shield spell has no direct relation to any stat. IMO the same would hold true for all/most other spells in which you would r...

Re: Question about experience

In my experience the experience from killing a mob is pretty much just distributed among the killers according to their levels, with lower levels gaining less exp than higher level characters. Besides that I haven't been able to discern any real pattern. So, Fargothe, part of why you get less exp fr...

Re: Scout changes

Belamir did a very good job of commenting on most of your post, so I am only going to address this apparent "massive imbalance" you have noticed with "wizards and clerics ruling the warlord listings". Out of the 20 characters on the warlords lists 10 are warriors, 2 are scouts and 8 are casters (tha...

Re: Negative Effects of Cross-Class Practicing

Yes, there is a version of the "class distance" formula in effect, though it is more complex now since the difficulty of the skill/spell also has an effect. But yes, for every class skills/spells from other classes has varying effect on the original class.
