Before you play
If you are not an experienced MUD player it is probably a good idea for you to read up a bit on the newbie guide before you connect to the game. Also if you are very used to playing other MUDs it is probably good to spend a few minutes reading the guides for some helpful tips and tricks.
Connecting to ZombieMUD
MUDs use a standard method of connection called telnet. Windows, linux and macOS all come with built in telnet applications.
To use these do the following:
Open up a command prompt
Type 'telnet zombiemud.org'
You will now be connected to the game.
A better (and free) telnet application (for windows) is putty which can be downloaded from http://www.putty.org/.
Once you have connected, the game will guide you with instructions shown on the screen.
You can also connect through our Java applet with your browser here.
Using a client
A MUD client is a telnet application which has functions that makes it easier to play the game. For example it may be possible to bind buttons to actions in the game and write scripts that makes it possible for you to quickly do many MUD actions in a row or react automatically to messages from the game.
These are some of the most common MUD clients:
TinyFugue (tf) (Windows and Mac)
TinyFugue (tf) (Linux/Unix)
The official ZombieMUD Client:
