Our goal is to make GnomeMud feature rich while still maintaining usability. Here are some of the things in GnomeMud right now:

  • 256 Color Support plus the standard ECMA-48 (ANSI) colors.
  • Mud Sound Protocol - GnomeMud can play sound effects and music on MSP enabled servers.

  • MCCPv2 support.
  • Triggers and Aliases with perl compatible regular expressions.
  • Internalization - Comes with many translations and handles character sets properly on non-ISO-8859-1 (latin1) muds.
  • SOCKS Proxy Support - Versions 4 and 5.
  • Multiple mud connections.
  • Separate input history for each connection.
  • Profiles - Each Mud can have it's own preference settings.
  • RFC compliant telnet implementation - You should never notice this but it ensures things run smooth.
