    That search turns up a few.

    Personally, I always used telnet as a mud client, and that's certainly
    available.

    I didn't know I could use telnet as a MUD client, I surely prefer using something already available.

    One last question for my knowledge ... can Tumbleweed packages be installed on 13.1 ?

    Thank you very much

    I used to play DikuMUD when I was in college - telnet was the only tool
    available at that point.

    I wouldn't - it *might* work, but if you add the repo to do so, you may
    (more likely "probably will") end up with a mess.

    Most mud clients will run on Linux, even the ones designed for Windows. They can be run through Wine.

    I personally run MUSHclient through Wine because the mud I play on has a custom MUSHclient install.

    I think you should do some research on which client you want to use, or which client the mud you play recommends, and then ask how to get it working on openSUSE if you are having problems.

    Those I know will run on linux:

    Graphical:
    Mudlet - http://www.mudlet.org
    MUSHclient - http://www.gammon.com.au/mushclient/ (through Wine)

    Non-Graphical:
    Tintin++ - http://tintin.sourceforge.net/
    Tinyfugue - http://tinyfugue.sourceforge.net/

    I know these are still actively supported, free, and have a healthy user base.

    Hi
    I had mudlet on OBS (version 1.1.1) awhile back, I could look at
    creating the new 2.x version?
