I know very little of IMC other than that it exists and what it does in a very generic sense, so I have the following question: I'm considering implementing IMC as an optional feature to my EndeavorMUD codebase so that users of upcoming and future versions will have it available to them in the core code; what is the current de-facto standard and/or version? I see mention of IMC, IMC2, and I think I even saw IMC3 somewhere, so I'm a little confused about which is what and whatnot.

I'd also like to know if any code snippets for implementing IMC are for the server, or for the client (or both?). I'm concerned about this as I'd like to write my own client, and I'll need some sort of reference as to the protocol and structure the server(s) require and respond to in order to make that happen.


P.s, my apologies if I'm derailing the current topic. I just figured with it being relatively about IMC that I'd use this thread instead of starting another.

Edit: Split from IMC2 Custom Name Mud Seperator by kiasyn – its fine to make new threads.

IMC2 is what MUDBytes uses, however I believe there is an I3 network out there too (although I know nothing about it).

IMC2 protocol reference is available under the Intermud pages on MB –> http://www.mudbytes.net/imc2-intermud-pr...

And example implementations (indeed, snippets) –> http://www.mudbytes.net/imc2-intermud-cl...

You can also try Talon –> mudbytes.net:2000 which will show you what IMC is like.

http://www.mudbytes.net/intermud has all this info and more :)

For information about the i3 network. visit: http://lpmuds.net/intermud.html

The spec for i3 can be found here: http://ebspso.dnsalias.org:6061/intermud...

I maintain the current most popular i3 network, feel free to contact me if you
have specific questions regarding its implementation, or you can ask on its
support forum: http://lpmuds.net/forum/index.php?board=...
