cMud Proxy/SSL - tie it to each character?
 
Minor feature but it would be nice if each settings file could be set to a different proxy.

Currently I use another program to redirect/tunnel local ports to remote servers. I just tried to see if I could open 2 characters and point them to different proxies and it appears when I change 1 the other changes as well.

Not sure how many people use zMud for remote shell work. Smile

Correct. In zMUD the proxy settings are "global". In CMUD you will eventually be able to change this on a character-by-character basis, and it will be a lot easier to determine what settings are global and what settings are character-specific.

Also, "packages" can add their own settings and preferences. And packages can change both global and character-specific settings. So you could, for example, create a simple package for each of your proxy settings and then just have each character load a different package.

Beautiful! Didnčt see the option with the packages but that illumniated me.

Found a way in zMud that I can use the proxy & log in #1. Then set it for another proxy and log in #2.
Works but I cant autoconnect as the profiles are different.

Perhaps allow character personalized connection response settings as well.

If I understand Zugg correctly, the package model will allow you to override ANY setting on a per-character basis, by having characters load different sets of packages.

Ah you are right, jquilici. It appears I didnčt over illuminate enough late last night!
