MUDix is a MUD client for linux.
“MUDix – “This is the console version of MUDix. You should use this if you don't have X windows or if you hate X-windows. It supports almost all features one would require to play a MUD, like ANSI colors, triggers, aliases, speedpaths, tab completions, variables, scrollback, logging facilities and much more. Latest version of MUDix is version 4.3.”
“gMUDix – This was developed witk GTK+2.0 and is the improved version of MUDix which runs on X windows. gMUDix supports all the features MUDix has (and more). Screenshots: User Window, Trigger Editor, User Selector Window. Latest version of gMUDix is 0.10.”
The client author recommends using gMUDix if you are not bound to a console.
Wintin 95 is a 'mud client' that is a “fully graphical multi-windowed program which will run under Windows 95 or Windows NT.”
“Wintin95 has a large scrollback buffer (approximately 2000 lines). If you scroll back, Wintin 95 doesn't jump back to the current insertion point every time some new text arrives. Also you can split a window so that you can scroll back through the history while watching any new stuff that arrives… The other feature that makes Wintin 95 is that it includes a complete port of Tintin++. It has a powerful 'alias' facility, which lets you set up an unlimited number of shortcut commands for the things you find yourself doing a lot. It has an 'action' facility which you can use to automate things.”
yTin means "yet another TinTin++" mud client.
“Tintin++ was one of the most popular Mud Clients. zMud's earlier design had to claim to be tintin++ compatible to attract users. One of the reason that limit TinTin++'s popularity is that it can only be compiled and run under Unix systems… yTin tries best to be compatible to newest TinTin++, in addition, yTin has some features specially designed to display double-byte characters smartly.”
“Since the original TinTin++ had stopped developping for some while, I decide to maintain "yet another TinTin++" with new fixes and features. yTin was based on TinTin++1.76, and had great improvement compared to TinTin++1.76. The first yTin version is 1.80. yTin share the same source code for both Windows and Unix. It had been test compiled under both MSVC and some Unix platforms.”
“yTin is freeware… and yTin's source code is available. Please check the Downloads section. It can be compiled under MSVC and Unix.”
