cMUD plugin download, installation instructions, and FAQ can be found here:

http://abandonedrealms.com/plugins/index.php#cMUD



Features:
Code:

* Tabbed chat capture
* Affects window
* Minimap window, including area name, room name, sector, and world time
* Inventory window
* Character window, which is similar to what you see with the in-game "score" command
* HP, Mana, and Move gauges
* Visual weapon and combat matchup information. It'll change colors like the descriptive text in-game prompt
* Opponent name, level, and hp information
* XP gauge, which doubles as adrenaline indicator by changing colors. At lvl 50 automatically becomes pure adrenaline gauge
* Overlord gauge. This is tiny and just under the XP gauge
* Visual group information. Group gauges are automatically populated as the group forms. Tank will be highlighted during combat.
* Click to cast. i.e. type "quick sanc" to assign sanc as your quickclick spell and click your groupmate's gauge and you'll sanc him



These install instructions are available on the plugins page and included in the download as well.

Code:
To import xml to an existing session (experienced cMUD users only):

1. Extract the AbandonedRealms folder from ARmsdp.zip
2. Begin a session how you normally would.
3. Click on the Triggers button on the main toolbar.
4. Highlight the name of the main game window on the menu to the left (this is important).
5. Go the the File Menu > Import XML and navigate to the the folder where you extracted the zip file.
6. Choose msdp.xml
7. Make sure the name of the main game window is highlight again and repeat for captures.xml
8. Close cMUD and relaunch. The windows will launch as they're needed. Customize as needed.
9. There's an AR icon in the folder if you want to use it for your session image (Edit Session on startup screen).

To create a new session that uses the package:
 
1.  Download and install cMUD if you haven't already. It can be found here: http://www.zuggsoft.com/files/cmud334_setup.exe
2.  Extract the folder that's found the zip file.
3.  Launch cMUD and choose New Session.
4.  Give the session a title such as Abandoned Realms, use abandonedrealms.com for the host and 9000 for the port.
5.  Click the Package Files tab.
6.  Take note of the path to your cMUD packages. On windows 8.1 it looks like this:  C:\Users\<user name>\Documents\My Games\CMUD
7.  Move the AbandonedRealms folder that you extracted here. The path should now look like this: C:\Users\<user name>\Documents\My Games\CMUD\AbandonedRealms
8.  Once the folder is in the proper location, click on the Browse button in cMUD's Package Files tab.
9.  Navigate to the folder you just unzipped and choose ar.pkg
10. Click Save Changes on the left menu.

Optional:

11. Highlight the session you just created and choose Edit Session from the left menu.
12. Under the Session tab, find where it says image file and click the Browse button.
13. Choose ar_logo.jpg
14. Click Save Changes


Thanks to Vevier for getting the ball rolling on this and Clifton for parsing the minimap and the initial windows setup.

Which method did you use, import xmls or create a new session? Are you experiencing empty windows or no minimap/affects windows at all?

I don't know how much this was modified from the original stuff I posted, but mine had a trigger that needed to run (msdpinit or something) that got all the variables up to speed.

This will autoinitialize 3 seconds after your character loads.

I tried both methods.

The second time, I tried to create a new session and it came up with this.

That's really weird. See if any of the windows are listed under the Windows menu. Also check Layout menu to see if your layout is locked (it shouldn't be). Another thing you can try is to launch the session, then right click in your main window and choose "edit menu" see if any other windows are listed in the left column.

If none of these things work, I would close cMUD, go to the folder where your cmud data is saved and rename it cMUD.bak and then create a new folder named cMUD and try the instructions for new session.

You're welcome. Here's a guide on Zugg's site to repositioning windows in cMUD for anyone who wants to move stuff around or did the xml import.

After all the window work, I left and came back. The windows are all gone. Not one of them is pulling up. Very odd.

The prompt stuff is there and so is the group hp/mana stuff.

None of the tell windows, inventory, map came up when I reopened Cmud.

Under layout menu, make sure "lock layout" is not checked and "Autosave Layout" is checked.

#spoon?

Both of those are clicked. I am going to delete it all and reload it, then click to save the layout. Maybe that will fix this issue.

Okay, for whatever reason, autosave layout was checked in the session where shit wasn't working, but not when I rebuilt it. So - when you organize your windows how you want them, be sure to go to {Layout} and check {autosave layout} and for good measure also click, {save session layout}.

That solved my issues.

I updated the first post to say there's an FAQ and updated the cmud section of the plugins page a bit. Also started the faq.

I couldn't figure out how to make all the backgrounds rgb(50,50,50). The pure black background was clashing a lot with the text. Would be great to include a default keyboard in there as well, because hitting "SE","SW","NE","NW" was awkward.

Besides that, it's fantastic.

This client is pretty stellar, though I agree with adding the default keyboard. However, Ashlyn, if you haven't already bought cmud or unless you're really used to zmud/cmud, I'd suggest heading for the mushclient plugin thread instead. CMUD is like 30 or 40 bucks and as far as I know doesn't innately support msdp. So if you're going to learn a new client, you may prefer to go with the free one that supports everything.
