FAQ


Q:

What is MUME? Where i can find MUME related info?

A:

MUME ( Multi Users in the Middle-Earth) is multi user role-playing game based on J.R.R. Tolkien fantasy world, running since 1991.

It is running on FIRE and it is possible to connect with telnet client on machine:fire.pvv.org port:4242. Also on the same machine are official MUME www pages.

Q:

How do i report MMapper bug or feature request?

A:

Preffered way how to report bug or feature request is to use Help/Report Bug feature directly from MMapper. Other way is to send email to author. In subject just include "MMapper report" and in text body description of your problem. Sometimes it would be very helpfull to include some screenshots and data file with problematic part. Please use gzip or zip to pack such additional data.

Q:

When i map in offline mapping mode, all created rooms have "?" mark in the center.

A:

MMapper works in offline mode, but in this mode it can't fill some of MUME specific informations in it's room data structure. For example exits and terrain informations. These informations are updated, when room marked with "?" are visited by character in online play or edit mode.

Q:

What are parser options in preferrences dialogs for?

A:

Parser is used to allow 'dynamic programming' of MMapper. Up to now, we have two command parsers, one descriptions parser, and one parser for recognition special character move (in fog or blinded ...).

Command parser expressions allows MMapper to recognize, if character move was canceled or forced by MUD server. For example if you stay with youd character on river and MMapper receives "You are borne by strong current ...", it searches through all parser expressions and finds one that matches in move force patterns. It says to MMapper that character moved in unknown direction, and it tries to synchronize.

Room descriptions are filtered by room description filter patterns, to filter all possible 'moveable' object out of descriptions. Because next time this 'moveable' object will not probably be present in room and it can confuse room comparsion algorithm.

It is neccessary to keep all parser settings updated!
