Window layout and saving
 
Hi, It's been awhile thought I'll fire up CMUD once again:)


I have an image of my current layout, it took ages to get it this way, have forgotten heaps.

Whats the best way to save this layout, so the session, stays this way next time and everything loads in its place.

Was reading about saving as a Module ? but really have no-idea.

If you can help, can you walk me though the steps please, or point me to the where to read up or any examples.

This is what Im doing
"Scenario B: Multiplaying on the same MUD :
Connect to a specific MUD host. But have multiple windows connected to the same host logged into multiple characters on the same MUD. Each character has it's own SessionWindow with it's own socket connection. There might also be multiple ChatWindows. Again they want the layout of their windows to get saved and restored automatically. This is a common setup and when they play this MUD, they always play with this setup and multiplay all characters at the same time."


thanks :)

So that is a 3 account system?
The way I understand it, supersessions are finicky, but they can be done.
(I never did them myself.)
As I recall, it takes one more session then the number of characters being used.

The Host session should be named for the game, and this is the session that will have the map and any shared settings. It should have no connection settings of its own.
Each of the Character sessions should be named for the character, and all it needs to worry about is character specific settings.
And the best way to save the layout is a clean exit of CMUD.

Ideally, when you then load the supersession, it will automatically load all the character sessions at the same time.
