so I got the urge to try my old mud today and after updating mudlet from 3.0 to the current version I gave it a go.
Logging in with my old profile worked as it should, but the ansi colors were not displayed.
Checking with another mud client on the same accound did display the colors. I tested with a new profile from scratch with the same result.
Checking the traffic with wireshark I can see that color codes are being sent, but they all show up in the same color to me (no control codes being visible on client screen).
Here is an example of the output from one packet captured with wireshark:
Code: Select all
[36;1m[-Druids-] The trees whisper happily: MyName the historic druid of hazels is here.[38;40;0m Ok. [42;37;1mThe chambers of the Druids' Guild[38;40;0m[42;37m <out e w n s>[38;40;0m. [44;36mThis is the main chamber of the Druids' Guild where the members come to socialize. The smell of incense hangs in the air, making you feel relaxed and slightly sleepy. To the north you can visit the pub if you need to refresh yourself and to the south
I tried another mud from the basic profiles, and ansi colors there seemed to work at the login screen. I even tried to copy that profile and change host, but that didn't work either.
Any suggestions on what else I can check?
