CMud Colors - washed out
 
I noticed the colors in CMUD from xterm are kind of dull and washed out. Is there anything I can do to brighten them up?

They look better on Mushclient - much more vibrant and lush.

Thanks.

I would assume that the colors are the same.
That's more of a hardware issue, no?

I suspect it could be the way it renders the colors. It's similar to ZMud and the colors between ZMud and CMud look to be the same (across 4 computers dating from 2003 actually) but between Mushclient and Mudlet, they're all different haha. I know one of them uses QT (Mudlet or Mushclient). Not sure what CMud uses.

I also know that Mushclient changed their xterm color profile sometime in the past so this could also be it too.

The post by Nick a few down says this:
"After some more agonizing and discussion I have decided to revert to the Xterm colour cube from version 4.96 of MUSHclient. The Xterm cube favours brighter colours (the gap between colours is: 95 / 40 / 40 / 40 / 40).

The Netscape cube, used previously, has even colours, with a consistent gap of 51 / 51 / 51 / 51 / 51.

For backwards compatibility you can change to the Netscape cube by executing this Lua function call:"

So maybe CMud is using a different xterm cube? I'm not familiar with this enough to know for sure or if this is something I can change on CMud.

Thanks.

It may well be, that is all outside my personal scope of knowledge.
However, CMUD is no longer being actively developed, so it is unlikely to be changed.
I am unsure if there is anything you can do to adjust it from a user perspective.

Ah! I was not aware of that. Are they making a new client or just decided to end all development for MUDs?

ZMud/CMud have always offered great support for features. Out of the three clients I used/mentioned, xMUD is the only one to handle blinking text.

Sounds interesting! Good luck to him!

Maybe one day he'll return to CMUD and mudding in general. He has always been a big factor in the community for as long as I've been here (I got into mudding around 1994!).

I may see if I can create a custom profile for my nvidia card to change the saturation of colors for CMud. I'll post up if I find anything of use to report.

Thanks!
