Client Support Grid

This grid tries to gather Evennia-specific knowledge about the various clients and protocols used. Everyone’s welcome to report their findings.

Legend:

  • Name: The name of the client. If it’s only available for a specific OS, it should be noted here too.
  • Version: Which version or range of client versions were tested.
  • Comments: Any comments or quirks on using this client with Evennia should be added here. Also note if some other protocol than Telnet is used (like Websockets, SSH etc).

Workarounds for client issues:

Issue: Telnet NOP displays as spurious character.

Known Clients
Workarounds
  • Set the command in game to @option NOPKEEPALIVE=off for the session, or use the /save parameter to disable it for that Evennian account permanently.
  • Client-side: Set a gag-type trigger on the NOP character to make it invisible to the client.

Issue: Won’t send blank line on Enter key press.

Known Clients
Workaround
  • Press Control Enter, then Enter key again to send blank line.
