Frequently Asked Questions

Why Use MUSHclient?

MUSHclient is a freeware program that incorporates features for users of all expertise. With extensive support for triggers, aliases, macros, timers, and scripting, MUSHclient is the most customizable client on the market. It uses XML for configuration portablility. It supports MCCP versions 1 and 2, and MXP. It has its own unique chat client. It also has its own proxy server support.

How Do I Use MUSHclient to Connect to Materia Magica?

After downloading the client, open the installer program. Start MUSHclient from Start → Programs → MUSHclient.

From the File menu, choose "New World". Unless you’ve received a file world from another player, choose "No". In the World Name box, type whatever you want to use for the filename. I use "Materia Magica" followed by my character name, but it’s up to you to use whatever you like.

In the TCP/IP address box, type in "" and place the port you’d like to use, usually 4000. If you’re behind a proxy, select the appropriate type, Socks 4 or 5, and the server address and port, and the password, if required, and click "OK".

You’re all set now - good luck! If you want to change any settings, use the Game → Configuration screens.

How Do I Enable Sounds in MUSHclient?

MUSHclient supports MXP and MSP, with the help of a plugin. Follow this step-by-step guide to enable sounds. You’ll need to do a few things yourself, but they’re pretty easy to do.

  1. Download the below sound packs provided by Materia Magica. Take note of where you save them!
  2. Locate the MSP directory in your MUSHclient installation folder, and unzip the sound packs into that directory. If you used the default installation, it should be: C:\Program Files\MUSHclient\msp

  1. From the File menu, locate "Plugins" to bring up the Plugins screen. Click the "Add" button. Locate mm_msp.xml, select it, and click "Open". If you placed the sound files in the correct directory earlier, you can load them now.
  2. To enable and disable sounds ingame, type set sound onNote: Click to copy the command or set sound offNote: Click to copy the command. Assuming everything is set up correctly, you can test sounds by using the knockNote: Click to copy the command command on any door in the game!
  3. If you’re having problems getting the sound packs to work, it may be because MP3 support is not fully enabled on your machine. Try downloading the WAV versions of the sound packs instead and installing those into the appropriate directory.

Customizing MUSHclient

Here are a few things you can do to customize MUSHclient to the needs of Materia Magica, to make your gaming experience easier.

  • Auto Login: Go toGame > Configure > Connecting. There, you can enter your username and password. In the "Connect" dropdown, select the "Diku-style" option. This isn’t recommended on any shared computers, or if you’re not running an operating system with a secure login, such as a recent Windows installation.
  • Auto Logging: One of the nicer features of MUSHclient is its logging, found under Game > Configure > Logging. You can either choose to log as plain text, or use the html option to reproduce the colors you see.
  • Keypad Navigation: Under Game > Configure > Keypad, you can assign custom navigation commands in addition to the cardinal directions. You can also assign quick keys to cast spells, open doors, whatever you think you need to make it easier to move around.
