Games::Axmud - Axmud, a modern Multi-User Dungeon (MUD) client written in Perl5 / Gtk3


Axmud is known to work on MS Windows, Linux and *BSD. It might be possible to install it on other systems such as MacOS, but the authors have not been able to confirm this yet.

After installation (see the INSTALL file), visually-impaired users can run this script

Other users can run this script

Using either script, you can specify a world to which Axmud connects immediately 4000

If you omit the port number, Axmud connects using the generic port 23

If a world profile already exists, you can specify its name instead cryosphere

You can force Axmud to use a particular text-to-speech engine by adding the engine's name to the end of those commands. This overrides (almost) all other text-to-speech settings.

Acceptable engine names are 'espeak', 'esng' (for espeak-ng), 'flite' (for Festival Lite), 'festival', 'swift' and 'none' (for the dummy engine). For example: 4000 esng cryosphere festival
