MUSHclient is a MUD client and peer-to-peer chat system written and maintained by Nick Gammon. The client is released as freeware.[1][2][3]

Features[edit]

A custom MUSHclient interface with many graphical elements.

MUSHclient is highly flexible, and provides aliases, hotkeys, triggers (text-matching), command-execution timing, variables, multi-session support, ANSI-colour customisation and speed-walking.[4] In July 2008, support for "miniwindows" was added, which allows MUD programmers to customize graphical elements to the screen, such as a map.[5]

MUSHclient is compatible with screen readers such as JAWS, which read text out loud and allow blind users to play MUDs.[6][7][8]

MUSHclient offers extensive scripting support via the Windows Script Host-supported languages, such as VBScript and JavaScript, as well as the platform-independent Lua-scripting. It also supports MCCP and MXP.[9][10][11]

MUSHclient is also a peer-to-peer chat system using TCP/IP, featuring group calls and file transfers. This chat system is vulnerable to penetration attacks.[12]

Portability[edit]

Although primarily written for Microsoft Windows, MUSHclient has been successfully run both under the Linux operating system by using Wine,[13] and the Mac OS X operating system via Boot Camp and Parallels Desktop for Mac.[14]
