**The gray screen at first means it's connecting. The preloader will appear after a few seconds.

Other notes:

1) Enter "newbiechat " to ask for help if you get stuck. If an administrator is on to help, they will answer your questions.

2) Amitoune is a roleplaying game, and there are rules against names that are incompatible with the game theme. Please choose your name carefully. At any time while connected, you can type "suggest" to display a randomly generated name that will be acceptable with our rules. Here are some examples of excellent names: Aeetes, Nuala, Ianthe, Izol, and Altarus.

3) As soon as you enter the game, you will still be in character creation. Please read the beginning text carefully, as it explains how to continue. The idea is that you move down and choose your characteristics as you go.

4) When you are finished with your session and want to leave, type "quit" before closing the window. Otherwise, the game will think you are still connected and you can still die.

5) If you die, first enter "stand" to stop resting, then type "recall". Next, find the morgue by typing "beacon". After reaching the morgue, type "getcorpse" to have your corpse brought before you; then get your items.

6) If your pet dies, take its corpse and bring it to the pet doctor. You can locate the pet doctor using "beacon". After you are at the pet doctor, type "resurrect corpse".

This is the first MUD client to ever be made in flash. We focused on customizing for the MUD itself, which means lots of special features you don't find on other clients: health bars, quick buttons, and greatly improved clickable interface for commands. It also supports color and sounds, and we might add features later such as fastwalking (this is only the first version). Overall, this project has taken two people over two months to complete and has required over 6,000 lines of programming in C++ and in actionscript.

If you get tired of the in-game tutorial and want to see the actual game, go west from the Cruach and say explore. If you have trouble figuring out what to do, type help or click on Help -> Help. Also, you can use the newbiechat command to ask for help; if someone else is on and feels like it, they will answer. Remember: lines in the text area that are underlined are clickable; this will save you from typing alot, but you will still have to type in some commands.

Additional notes:
1) The filesize is small because it immediately loads another .swf file from another location. This is required in order to get past actionscript socket restrictions.

2) If the colors annoy you, you can turn off color parsing under options or you can configure the colors typing the "colors" command while connected.

The easiest way to do it is to join a clan with a storage room, and items will stay in the storage room after reboot. You could also buy a house, but one costs 10 million gold.

nothing

every time i play i type words that dont work and i try to play but it keeps making me do the same thing! maybe a viruse in-game

Here are some ideas that might help you get past where you are stuck.

1) Read all text carefully, especially during the tutorial because it tells you exactly what to do next.

2) Ask for help using newbiechat, i.e., type "newbiechat <question>" to ask a question. There is not always a helper on, but if there is they should be able to tell you what to type. If there is no helper on, you could use chat instead of newbiechat, but this option only works at level 2. Finally, Altarus probably would not mind if you PM'd him with a question.

3) Use the help files. If you need help on a command, there is usually a help file on it. For instance, typing "help drop" would show you how to drop items.

I will admit, this game can be hard to figure out at times, but that is because there are so many things that you can do. But don't give up so easily.

...I'll just say I'm addicted.

...This is nice :D It's a little bit hard to get into at first, but once you get into it...

Let's just say it could take up a lot of your time.

There must have been a lot of work put into this, script-wise...not to mention writing the descriptions. It's well done, and very entertaining.

Cool

This was a cool game, I am still kind of getting used to walking around the basic area. I am a lvl 2 rogue elf (name is Caleb), so I am having fun being a thief. I died once, so I had some trouble finding out that I was sitting down in one part, then I had trouble getting my old stuff from my corpse. I always had fun with MUDs though, so I am on your side now. (violence is for being able to kill, graphics is for dragon art when you log in, and I don't have sound so I gave you a 1)

5/5

Very Nice

Is it possible to make a help file dropdown list that shows each help topic available? It'd be helpful.

I'm still on the tutorial.

5s everyday.


dawnsiebugg responds:

You can view a list of help topics by typing "help start" or just "help". Another very useful feature is the ability to type "commands" to see a full list of commands (then type "help <command>" to see how to use it).

You can also view a list of all help topics in existence by typing "hlist", but I don't recommend it because there are over 800 help topics, and the list will flood your screen. I recommend exploring "help", "help start", and/or "commands".

Hope this helps, and thanks for the 5.
