The MUD client we have has been known not to work so well with some systems, most notably systems with Windows XP.

However, here's a couple links to some free MUD clients that are fairly easy to set up.

MUSHclient: http://www.gammon.com.au/mushclient/mushclient.htm

GMUD: http://www.mudmagic.com/codes/dl/1298/GMudClient.zip

Free version of zMUD: http://www.zuggsoft.com/index.php?page= ... file_id=18

Otherwise, there's good ol' fashioned telnet.

Hope this helps,
Jorlain

Not sure if you have done this already, so please ignore if you have.
If you're running on Windows XP or later, you'll need to right click on the actual Client App executable file and then select Properties. Then click on the compatability tab and hit the tick box box for compatability mode and in the drop down menu select Windows 95.

Apply after that and then when you run it it should be fine. I run on Windows XP and the client works fine for me if I do this.

Hope this helps,

Bannik.
