Projects / ErlyMUD


ErlyMUD is a rather minimalistic MUD server, written in Erlang and making use of the excellent OTP libraries. The aim is to have solid support for exploration and roleplaying, within a highly fault-tolerant environment where system crashes or reboots are more of an exotic curiosity than a commonplace thing.

    Release Notes: Online room editing is now possible through "redit" and "addexit" commands. A privilege system is in place to restrict some commands. Safer connection handling has been implemented; it now uses flow control, and TCP listener and acceptor processes are in their own supervision structure separate from "live" connections. Data files have been relocated to a top-level directory, instead of below the release version.
