special characters garbling mud output?

Post by gorgar »

Hi,
testing the mud I maintain with Mudlet. It seems that if any text from the mud contains the < symbol, it gets stripped from mudlet. Where can I learn more about this?

THanks

Hi,

The issue would be due to improper use of MXP... double-check that you have everything correct in there. Within an MXP sequence, < means the start of a a tag.

Hi,
So to my knowledge, we're not enabling mxp by default. Does mudlet automatically begin talking mxp or does it need to be enabled from the mud?

How might I open a debug console in mudlet to dig deeper into this?

It does need to be enabled from the game. Launching Mudlet from the command line would get you some debug output - how you do that depends on your OS, which one are you running?

Client on Windows. Mud is LDmud 3.6.0.

Here's the spec for MXP: http://www.zuggsoft.com/zmud/mxp.htm that should answer the activation question.
