Client options for Chromebook users?

Post by palaver » 16 May 2017 01:02

I love Genesis, all the more as I dig deeper. I'd like a little more flexibility with triggers than the web client offers, but I don't know anything really about coding; I'm willing to learn, though. My basic question is, given that my only deck is a Chromebook, would it be worth it to work with a different client?

I hear a lot of good things about cMud, and some things about Mudlet. But I'm unsure how difficult / possible it would be to run them on my Chromebook, and whether the effort would be worth it. Any advice?

I don't have any expertise with a chrome book but know Cmud has a free trial period with full functionality so you could try it and see.

I think a chromebook does not allow you to install any programs as such you are left with chrome addons only so this leaves you with a very limited choice of "clients" unfortunately.

Well, there is the possibility of running a Linux distribution, so anything one could run on that platform, I could conceivably use. I just wonder if it would be worth it.

It would take you a while to get up to speed with a new client. You would most likely like it less than the regular one at first.

+Cmud costs money.

But in the long term if u are going to customise things it is v nice.

Id say depends on

a) How much you play
b) Casual or more hmm advanced ie how much automation / assistance you require
less but still c) What guilds you are in

I use mudlet and its been a few months and still hurts to not have the automapper (havent gotten it to work YET)

That said the power of Mudlet is immense but in the end it does require some coding for the true power to shine

a) I play quite a bit.
b) I'm not interested in my character moving about on her own too much while I'm afk, but I would add more triggers if the web client had an efficient way (or any way) of organizing them.
c) Monk. Combat triggers are many.

To give u practical example of what the clients do.
I will try keep guild info to a minimum.

I only know zmud syntax but cmud has all same stuff.

So guild x has special with nothing telling u when its ready.

Lv0 use built in tick time to send a command every x seconds. U turn it on and off. But you liked using that for booze.

Lv1 create u own #alarm -x {do special} which will fire every x seconds. Till u kill it off. Can use triggers an aliases

Lv2 u make a folder with the alarms in it then you activate and deactivate the folder when in combat
Eg #tr {you killed} {#class fighting 0}

Lv3 u add to that stuff and include a variable for where u want to hit, set by result of where is best to hit etc

Now all this would probably be possible writing fancy scripts on the client, just mud type clients break it up into very manageable chunks for you
