Ok I haven't messed with it in months well since my last post on here. I have decided to download smaugfuss and afkmud again after my pc had to be reinstalled. now I have downloaded cygwin and installed the basic files that I thought I needed. But when I run cygwin and try to use it it doesn't want to work at all. is there a link on how to setup and use cygwin? I know it wasn't that long ago that I used it, but for some reason I can't remember how to run it and use the commands in it anymore.
ok redownloaded cygwin with the pearl and gcc and make files but when I doubleclick on the icon for cygwin on the desktop it takes me to bash-3.1$ i try to change to the dir and type make but doesn't do anything any ideas on what I am doing wrong?
It means that you are not in the area directory when starting the mud up. Use the startup file in the src directory. Or you can cd into the area directory and use like ../src/smaug.exe to start the mud up.
