19.3.2 zMUD and Voting and the Mapper
zMUD Vote Button ---------------- It's easy to make a VOTE alias or button for zmud. All the alias or button needs is a value of: #URL http://www.ironrealms.com/irex/tmsvote.php?id=imperian If you're not sure how to do this, here's the step-by-step for a button: 1) in zMUD, click on the 'Settings' icon, opening 'Settings in Memory' 2) on the 'settings in memory' page click on the little triangle next to the 'New' icon, and select 'New Button' 3) in the 'Edit Button' window, in the 'Caption' box, give the button a name, like 'VOTE' (or whatever you want) 4) in the 'Edit Button' window put this in the 'Value' box: #URL http://www.imperian.com/irex/tmsvote/vote.php 5) click on 'Save' on the right, near the green check mark. 6) close the 'Settings in Memory' To use the button, just click on it. It opens a new browser and takes you to a page where you must click one more time to register your vote on the TopMudSites.com site. That's it! zMUD Mapper ----------- The zMUD mapper can be used in Imperian. To get the most out of zMUD's mapper: CONFIGURE --------- - VERBOSE - use verbose descriptions in Imperian during configuration. This is _not_ necessarily needful while actually mapping, but can help during the configuration/setup steps for zMUD's mapper. - use zMUD mapper's configuration steps as usual to configure it. POST CONFIGURE -------------- Once everything is set up, you may wish to use the following, assuming you have zMUD 6.67 or later: - To keep the mapper from trying to match the first line of the room description, open the map window, click on config, then configuration settings, which will take you to the map preferences window. Select speedwalking, then change the automatic room matching radio button to match room name. NOTES AND HISTORY ----------------- The main thrust of the changes made recently is that the exits line (or lines) will now always start at the beginning of a new line, and the brief description at the top will now never end with a space (it used to, in cases where it didn't end in "(road)"). The "(road)" entry is not shown while you are flying.
