Well, since there have been several requests on how to get to AnimeMUCK, here is a simple way to get there.
First off, you need to be able to use "Telnet" or have a program called "TinyFugue" (Commonly refered as 'tf'), which still uses Telnet to connect to the muck.
Now, type in 'telnet' and you should get 'telnet>' prompt. For some of you, you might have to type in the following, 'toggle crlf' so you will get line feeds after your returns. If you do not get those linefeeds, you will not be able to do much until otherwise.
After doing that, type in, 'open anime.tcp.com 2035' or for those of you who do not have a name server, type in, 'open 126.96.36.199 2035'
From here on out, it is the MUCK.
Now it would be suggested that you get the MUCK documents from either piggy.ucsb.edu or glia.biostr.washington.edu. They have a document called mudenc.txt and mudref.txt. Those two files tell you a little on how to get around on a muck and how to MUCK. Also, for those of you who wish to program on a muck, you might want to get the following text files from the sites: mufman, muftut, mufref. There is also 'info new.muf' and 'info new.prims' on the muck for the TinyMUCK 2.2fb4.2f for the FB server's primatives that tend to make a few more things easier (Or harder) for the programmer.
For those of you who are connecting as guests, here is some simple commands to know before you get discouraged...
SAY <Message> or "<Message> - Say does not have to be in capitals. This will allow you to say something to people.
WHISPER <Person>=<Message> - This will allow you to say something to a specific person. Only that person will here it, but the person must ALSO be in the same room.
POSE <message> or :<message> - This will allow you to pose something. To best show what a pose is, here is an example:
Priss types in:
:waves hello to you.
It appears as:
Priss waves hello to you.
PAGE <person>=<message> - This will allow you to send a message to a person who is not in the room you are in.
LOOK [<object|person|exit>] - By typing 'look', you look at the room you are currently in. (One word of warning, for those of you who are running on TELNET, there will be NO WORD WRAPPING, and if you are typing in a busy room, your typing will be mixed in with it. Sorry, there is nothing I can tell you how to avoid this except maybe sneaking TF onto your account. CaveMUCK's Hawkeye or CaveMUCK's Jingoro at cave.tcp.com 2283 can tell you where you can find tf for your account.) Looking at a person/object/direction will show whatever they just happen to describe themselves as.
These are just the really basic commands to help you out on exploring. Right now, I can not give you a detailed map of AnimeMUCK since one, I am not a good Mapper. :) So it is best for you to just poke around and take a look for yourself. There are a few places that are not quite done yet, since we are fairly new. But this should be enough for you to see what to do. (From a posting by Priss)
