Mudlet’s new fast display

January 21st, 2009 by Vadi

Mudlet’s new display (what displays the MUD text that you see) is coming together very well.

At the moment, it has scrolling, selection, copying, and split screen capabilities – with screenwidth 0 support coming next.

Preliminary tests results show that it is very fast – as intended! Given 14,258 various lines with color, the new display displayed them all in only 0.6 of a second. To compare, zMud took 2 minutes to display the same text (with cMud scrolling through at 20 seconds).

So stay tuned for when the display is finished and in use :)

Updated Windows installer

January 12th, 2009 by Vadi

The Windows installer has been updated with several bugfixes. Grab the installer from here, or the update here from the previous verison.

Additionally, if you have any input on what capabilities Mudlet’s text display should support – let us know. We’re making a custom one just for Mudlet – so that it is extremely fast, and is able to cope with the large amount of text and formatting extremely quickly.

Update: The installer was updated, fixing a bug where scripts weren’t auto-compiled at start.
