There seems to be an issue with the function, 'Keep commands on prompt line'. I have clicked on the option, saved, and tested, and no go. I have also uninstalled and downloaded the program. I have also tryed it on different worlds. I assume I am just missing something, but in the past I have had no trouble.

It doesn't work together with "Convert IAC EOR/GA to new line" turned on, since it turns the prompt into a plain line. That is probably what you are having trouble with.

Not too long ago, I asked in another subforum to have it fixed somehow, but so far I was the only one with that wish.

Yes, that option means a new line has already been started. With the "Convert IAC EOR/GA to new line" turned off, then if possible, a command is appended to the current line.

Once a new line is started, triggers etc. are processed, and it doesn't want to "un-start" the new line.

I have confirmed that the convert IAC EOR/GA to new line, is not on. I still have the initial problem, so should I post this same question in the bug section?

Let's leave it here for now, since we got this far. ;)

I checked again, and with "keep commands on prompt line" checked, and "convert IAC EOR/GA to new line" unchecked, it works as advertised:


<24hp 145m 110mv> <#21036> sigh
You sigh.

<24hp 145m 110mv> <#21036> dance
Feels silly, doesn't it?


However maybe you have your prompt configured (or it does it anyway) to add a newline after the prompt.

You could try turning on Edit menu -> "debug packets". In my case I saw something like this:


Incoming packet: 13 (90 bytes) at Friday, October 30, 2009, 11:52:53 AM

dance..            64 61 6e 63 65 0d 0a


Note now at the end of packet 13 there was no newline (that is hex 0A). This lets it append "dance" to the end of the prompt. If there was a newline (eg. 0a or 0d 0a) then a new line has already started.

Also, the latest version (at present) is 4.43, not 4.14. You may get better results by downloading the latest version:

Ok, I used the 'debug packets' and found this when I would look or type anything into the command prompt.


Sent packet: 208 (3 bytes) at Thursday, October 29, 2009, 11:52:57 PM

l.. 6c 0d 0a

Which means that every time I type I am getting a new line?
So, what can I do to correct this? Also I checked and I do have the latest version 4.43. My bad.

That is the packet with "l" in it.

I want to see the packet with the prompt in it.

Sorry not as versed in the actual function of the program. I just pushed enter with nothing in the prompt, I think that gives the desired results.

Right, well apart from some formatting codes, I see your prompt as being simply "1661". Is that your prompt?

I also don't see a newline at the end of the line, but I do see hex "ff f9" which is the IAC/GA.

So when I had "convert IAC/GA to newlines" off, and "keep prompt on the same line" on, on that packet data, it put the prompt on the same line as the "1661" line.

Is there a way I can edit the ica/ga to be off, cause its off in the menu, and the same problem occurs.

Are we really looking at your prompt packet? Was your prompt "1661" in this example? What is that? Your HP or something?

Do you have any plugins installed? Plugins may modify the behaviour of the client, so we may be fighting a plugin here.

Hmmm, well it seems to work here. Can you please open your world file in a text editor (eg. Notepad) and copy the lines between <world> and </world>, and paste them here?

Delete the lines with your player name password in them, i.e.


password="<something>"
player="<something>"


It should look something like this:
