Hello, everyone. It's been a few years since I delved into playing with a MUD,
however I've never seen this come up before. When I try to run the startup for
Merc 2.2, it just says "charges: Command not found". Anyone know what this is
and how to fix it so the MUD will run? I would appreciate the help! Thanks.

in the startup file there will be a command called charges in there. just comment out that entire portion and it should work. I don't know what the hell the command does, but that's how ya fix it the easy way.

It may also only be one word, I dunno. post the startup script and I can help ya better.

Ok, see the bit that says
# Record initial charges
charges >> $logfile

just comment out the charges >> $logfile part by putting a # in front of it. should fix the problem
