If you are connected to MUME server and selected edit mode, you can use online mapping functionality. After you succesfully log into the game, select your starting position on map (for ex. click on room by mouse), then select Edit mode on the toolbar menu, and move around with your character. Rooms and their attributes are created automaticaly. You can change various room attributes or add information items (arrows, text or lines), set door names etc. by clicking to correspondent functions in edit dialog. To connect, delete, change attributes or flags of mapped rooms, use editdialog, which is always opened when edit mode is selected. You can also create info marks on map (text, lines, arrows).
Edit dialog offers most of the mapping functionality (except room moving). You can make different types of connections betwen two rooms by selecting source room (left-click), then destination room (right-click) and then pres connect in direction, which we want character leave source room and then direction from which character arrive to destination room or no direction at all (character arrived to destination room and is confused for example - oneway connections).
You can set different parameters for rooms and connections betwen them. Connections can be oneway, with door, loop, random etc... Rooms have attributes like light type, if it is portable or not, load type, terrain type, mob type etc ...
MMapper supports also offline mode, where rooms and connections are created offline to reduce online time needed for mapping. Rooms are created by Alt+direction commands or via edit dialog. Rooms that were created this way are marked with question mark. It means, that not all information are updated and it is needed to visit this room with real character in online play mode to update this informations (room description, parsed room description, exit information etc...).
