  • The Cup-O MUD client is a fully functional client for Multi-User Virtual Environments (MUVEs, aka MUDs, MU*s, MOOs, etc), written in the Java programming language. The Cup-O MUD applet allows embedding an active, real-time link to a MUVE system right into a web page or web system, which is immediately available to any user running a Java-capable WWW browser. Local-install and standalone versions of the Cup-O MUD client are also in the works.

    The Java MUD/BSX Applet, Matthias L. Jugel

  • Description:
  • Download:
  • jMUD is a MUD client with BSX capabilities. It is mainly intended for MUD admins to add this applet to their MUD host WWW Server. Now it is no longer necessary to have a telnet application on your client side. This may not be so interesting in case of raw text-mode MUDs, but with its BSX-capability this applet keeps the need to compile a specific BSX Client on your home machine away and is supported on any platform with a Java appletviewer. It is a subclass of my Telnet class (this implementation is out of date, see below).
