Whenever I start the MUD, and make a new player, the logo and nmotd helpfile don't show up - though when you highlight the area you can see them. I haven't any codes set in the logo files, for RIP and ANSI.

Oh, and it works fine both as admin and when I use no colour support.

Anyone know why this is? And how can I fix it?

Thanks!

How are you connecting to your MUD? Are you using a MUD client, or Windows cmd.exe, or something else?

Use the color command to reset the colors, see if it helps.

Not sure. SmaugFUSS 1.9? Unless you have to add a colour code, in which case no.

By the way, how do you use ANSI code? Is it like HTML?

If you're not sure if the color command exists, I can't really help. I need to know if it exists or not.

ANSI works by sending escape sequences to the client. It's kind of like HTML except that it doesn't work with tags, it works with modes. E.g., you send "turn on red mode" and things stay red until you change the mode.

I have never used the MUDMagic client but I would be surprised if it couldn't handle colors unless you have your local color settings set up oddly, so that foreground is black or something. I would try using another client, like, oh, MUSHclient. :-) Then see if it works. If it does, you know that the problem is your client. If it doesn't, the problem is on the server.

I don't think I have a colour command.


David, can you give me an example? Maybe if I set the text as white it'll show up.
I tried MUSHclient, same effect.

Make sure you are checking for the color command, not colour.

I do believe all FUSS versions have it.

Is it in wizard commands, or just the normal ones?

Found the color command - though it just shows the different colors available in the game. What do I do with it?

Is the foreground color set to white in the MUD client? If you have background as black and foreground as black, then it's no surprise that the text is all black. :-)

Only the logo shows black. ;)

I never changed anything. I think.
