A client is software that connects to Achaea to let you play it. It can be either browser-based, downloadable, or a mobile app. The best options to play Achaea with are: * The Nexus client, which is our official client. It runs in a browser and will work on all PCs/laptops (Windows, Macs, Linux), as well as tablets. It even runs on mobile, though not with full functionality. You can access Nexus at http://nexus.achaea.com HELP NEXUS will tell you more. * The Mudlet client, which is a third-party downloadable client for PCs. You can find Mudlet at http://www.mudlet.org To connect you'll need to tell it to connect to achaea.com, and either port 23 or 2003. (Both work.) Mudlet allows for custom GUIs to be created. One of our favourites was made by Zulah. All instructions and links for it can be found at: http://forums.achaea.com/discussion/5061/zulahgui-free-easy-gui * A mobile client for Android phones (see HELP ANDROID) * If you're visually-impaired and using a screenreader, we recommend checking out http://www.gmagames.com/vipmud.shtml which has a fully-accessible MUD client for free. There are many other third-party clients (some free, some require purchase) that can be run. Some of these are listed on our website: http://www.achaea.com/info/clients If you are having problems with registering, there are some notes in HELP REGISTERING related to various MUD clients.
