TinyFugue, aka "tf", is a flexible, screen-oriented MUD client, for use with any type of MUD.
TinyFugue is one of the most popular and powerful mud clients
Originally developed by Ken Keys, it compiles on virtually every UNIX, and most Unix-like
environments. Unfortunately, the very thought of compiling anything scares many users of
other environments. We here at Druware do not have that fear and feel that by providing both
the tweaks needed to build a TinyFugue distribution and binary installers, we can expand the
acceptance of TinyFugue.
Our builds of the 5.x versions of TinyFugue are lightly tweaked to feel more at home in
their platforms. On Windows, for example, we no longer rely on external environment
variables that must be tweaked to get everything working. The upcoming Mac versions will
offer a tidy little application bundle that can be easily moved, and does not require
knowledge of the Command Prompt or Terminal. In the future, we hope to improve the native
feel of the applications even further...
Though this is a free software project, and we provide these binaries free of charge
there is a cost in terms of time and resources that we do have to cover. Like most
developers we do enjoy the ability to use our hobbies as our jobs. Unfortunately, the
most rewarding work is the work we do for the community, not necessarily what pays the
best. With that in mind, there is no required cost to you use TinyFugue, but if you find
that you enjoy the fruits of the labor, donations are welcomed, as they go to putting
food on the table, and computers on the desks.
