Mud Master 2000
If you are looking for a graphical client with menus and a mouse-driven interface, MM2000 is for you. When it comes to scrolling text and speed, the windows GUI (Graphical User Interface) can be faster than the windows Console Mode. (Yes, I know there are exceptions.) Anybody familiar with Mud Master Console (Dos) or Tintin should have no trouble getting used to Mud Master 2000. I have modeled the syntax after MM Console & Tintin's. Without any major and perhaps some minor adjustments, you should be able to load MM Console and Tintin command files.

Most importantly, Mud Master 2000 is FREE. The client is not crippled in any way, nor does it nag you to register. If you find the program useful you are welcome to use it all you like.

Mud Master 2000 has been a hobby of mine for awhile now. I work on it when I find the time or get the urge. Sometimes this means it won't change for a lengthy period of time and sometimes there might be several updates in a week. Be sure to update OFTEN!

The client is 32bit only (win95/NT). It runs in the win32 console mode which makes it quite a bit faster than any GUI client around.

Site to site chat allows the private talking of players, transfer of files and transfer of scripts.
