JamochaMUD is a MUD/Muck client written in Java.
JamochaMUD offers Unicode, plug-in, and multi-language support (8 different languages) to allow a more enjoyable MUCKing/MUDding experience.
JamochaMUD project features command history, synchronized window controls, experimental SOCKS 5 support, and greatly improved ANSI colour support.
It plays nice on Unix systems, supports a wide range of MU*s, and also includes emulation of some TinyFugue editor controls. It uses Java 1.1, and includes classes to be easily reused in other Java applications.
Here are some key features of "JamochaMUD":
· JamochaMUD can handle Multiple MU* connections simultaneously
· Support for both terminated and unterminated lines (common on many MU*s)
· ANSI Colour support
· Different frames (timers, main window, etc.) may be moved, hidden, or shown either synchronised or independent of each other.
· Multi-language support (languages that are not supported currently can easily be added by folks that needn't even know how to program).
· Unicode support (may currently not work?!), which allows the display of double-byte languages and Non-western language font support, such as Russian cyrillic characters
· Support for JamochaMUD plugins the extend the features of the basic MU* client
· Socks5 support (perhaps limited, but it does work!)
· Programmable macros and definitions
File menu items:
· Save your session output to a (plain text) file
Edit menu items:
· Just the usual cut and paste features
Connection menu items:
· Quick reconnect to a MU* that you had just left.
Option menu items:
· Changing font size, type, and (base) colour
· Changeable background colour
· Assign external programs to deal with special features, such as URLs.
· Socks5 support
· Manage plugins independently of each other
· Split Frames, which allows the input and output windows to be either combined or totally independent of one another.
· Autofocus input (automagically sends typing to the text-input window if another frame of JamochaMUD is currently in focus).
· Smooth display turned "double-buffering" of the MU* output area on or off. With double-buffering the redraw of the area is smoother, but slower. With double-buffering off, the refresh appears faster, but flickers more. (A personal taste thing!)
· The ability to use Unicode characters when connected to a MU*. (This must be supported by the MU*).
· The option to enable Tiny-fugue emulation. This enables JamochaMUD to emulate some of TF's " editor" keyboard controls.
· Plug-ins menu: allows quick access to the properties of a plug-in
Help menu items:
· The 'Help' function connects you to the JMUD pages... In theory this will supply you with the most up-to-date JamochaMUD info. Yes, always on the bleeding edge of text-based MU* technology!
Additions via available plug-ins:
· Replacing JMUD's title with your current location
· Gags and triggers allowing highlighting/dumping of text as well as audio hints (as of 2000-08-12).
· Java 2 Standard Edition Runtime Environment
