I find that when a player logs off using the 'quit' command they don't get the %%disconnected from server%% message that you do get if I tell the MUD to shutdown or just close it, is there some reason it isn't disconnecting properly?

Thanks,

Do you mean you type "quit" or use the "quit" command in MUSHclient (or some other client)?

And is the "%%disconnected from server%%" a client or server message?

Knowing this will help explain. :)

Well yes, I mean using it in a MUD client like zMud or gMud, since those when you normally quit a MUD they pick it up and either ask if you want to reconnect, or at least show you as disconnected, but for some reason with SMAUG it doesn't do this, and I was wondering if it was a cygwin component or something.

Thanks,
Jay

Hmmm - I just tested that with SMAUG, freshly recompiled under Cygwin, and I got the message. Here is my log ...


quit
Your surroundings begin to fade as a mystical swirling vortex of colors
envelops your body... When you come to, things are not as they were.

A strange voice says, 'We await your return, Lordrom...'

The last two lines were output by MUSHclient, which picked up the disconnection.

Hmm... I just tested it with MUSHclient, and I am not getting it, you used the version of SMAUG that you can download from this page?

I am using the SMAUG from this site with MXP added (not that MXP should make any difference), file http://www.gammon.com.au/files/smaug/smaug1.4a_mxp.tgz.

I compiled under Cygwin and executed on NT 4.

I used MUSHclient 3.17.

After connecting I typed "quit" into SMAUG.

As far as I can tell I did the same, could it be a cygwin component I am missing?

It might just be a timing thing. After quitting the server will drop the connection. If it does it quickly enough the client will report the dropped connection.

So basically since the computer I am running the MUD on is slow, the MUD client isn't picking up that it quit?

I'm not saying that exactly, but if it works for me, but not for you, and you are using the same version of everything, it could just be an OS or timing issue.

Probably the modifications, not the translation, but yes.

It is hard to support the code once you have changed it.
