KaVir of Godwars II fame has created easy to implement additions for MUD owners for adding several exciting protocols to improve gaming experience for their players. We at Mudlet fully support this initiative, as pushing MUDs into more interactive enviroments is what Mudlet strives to support.

KaVir’s post along with public-domain code is available from here.

It adds support for TTYPE, NAWS, MSDP, ATCP, MSSP, MSP and MXP, as well as UTF-8 (using CHARSET) and XTerm 256 colors. One mud has already added it, at least three more are in the process of adding it, and with luck we’ll see even more muds using it in the near future.
