God Wars 2 mushclient plugin

Regular mushclient:

Mushclient + plugin:

Here’s the update thread on the GW2 forums. Remember to create an /images folder in the Mushclient directory, and use the latest Mushclient (not the stable download) — get that Mushclient here
. And of course, if you don’t know already, information on connecting to GW2 is over here.

I think it’s refreshing that GW2 is moving in this direction. GW2 is kind of like Dwarf Fortress in that it’s an amazing game somewhat burdened by its interface, but it doesn’t even have the retro ASCII niche appeal going for it. I like how the plugins can enhance the experience while still allowing things to work gracefully for those who don’t want or need them, especially those with screen readers.

Once (if?) GW2 gets a one-stop bundled mushclient + plugin download going it’d be great to write a TIGSource post on it.

    I don’t think it’s ‘hindered’ by it’s interface, it’s actually quite intuitive once you get over the initial wtf of ‘how do I move myself?’

    Plugin looks all sorts of cool too, I’ll have to check it out šŸ™‚

    I think it’s cool that KaVir is doing as much as he is with not only the plugins but protocols in general.

    I don’t think it’s hindered either — it’s burdened, in the sense that it has a steep learning curve. I agree that once you learn it the system is quite good, it has the most fluid battles I’ve played, and the ranged system is fantastic.
