Hey guys, I'm a brand new user! I'm a long-time player of graphical MMOs, but I recently bought a Raspberry Pi (if you haven't heard, it's a $35 Linux computer-on-a-chip) and thought it would be cool to try out a MUD. Initially I tried out the WoT MUD since I'm a big Robert Jordan fan, but it's a bit hard to get into for beginners. I happened to come across Achaea while searching for an HTML5 client to use with my iPad. I love the fact that Achaea has a built-in "map" command, and the newbie tutorial was very helpful for someone new to MUDs.
Anyway! Here are my questions:
1) When I was trying out WoTmud, I used TinTin++ on my Raspberry Pi, since it had an automapper and the concensus seemed to be that it was the best Linux client. On the forums here, I haven't really seen much mention of TinTin++ or Wintin. What do Linux users use to play Achaea?
2) I've done a very small amount of reading on scripts, triggers, etc. For a newbie, are there any scripts/triggers that you would consider "must-have" or something that you think would have been handy back when you were a new player?
3) What do you guys prefer to use for playing on the iPad? I've tried a few different things - I've used VNC to log into my Raspberry Pi and played from that, I've used the HTML5 client in Safari, and I've used a dedicated iPad MUD app (I forget the name of it now and don't have it with me). Just wanted to ask experienced players what they use to play on their iPad - what provides the best experience overall? Btw, I was surprised to see another thread talking about how the iPad wasn't a viable option for MUDs because it's too hard to type on the keyboard. That may be true for some people, but I've gotten very good at typing on the virtual keyboard. I love laying in bed and playing a MUD on the tablet's screen! Very cozy.
Thanks in advance!
