What, hydraMUD? hydraMUD is my first effort at writing an application for Mac OS X. The main reason I'm building it though, is because in my search for MUD clients for the Mac, all I could find was ancient pre-Mac OS 9 software. I started using Mac OS X last year and I've never looked back. My prospects for finding a good MUD client that I didn't have to run in classic were dismal. I wanted a robust, user-configureable MUD client that would run natively on my system. I had already decided I was going to teach myself Cocoa, now I had a goal to accomplish. In all fairness though, building a MUD client gave me an excellent reason to play Avatar, my favorite MUD.

Currently hydraMUD is still in alpha stages. There's bugs! So if you're a hard core mudder, don't run with it. By all means, please download it and try it out (I need the feedback), but be cognizant that there still are the peculiarities of any software under development.

Features:

  • Mac OS X native written in ObjC Cocoa.
  • BSD Socket based connection for fast Mudding.
  • ANSI color code compliant
  • streamlined UI (no need to click to focus text input or scroll text windows)
  • customizable key bindings (control-arrow keys for N/S/E/W+CR for example)
  • live-searchable recent command list.
  • Transparent output windows. credit Nadreck for the reminder.
  • user definable text routing and display. (chat to chat window, battle to battle window,custom to custom window etc.)
  • Perl regular expression parser
