i want to use a copy of swrip200 as the code for my mud, and i don't see a startup or nohup in the src file like in swfote or smaug. does anyone know how to start up this code? and what file do i change the port in?

Is the exec there?

It should be in a directory called 'bin' rather than 'src' which is common in other bases. It should be called startup, and that's also where you change the port.

do i still type "nohup startup <port> &" to start it up?

If that fails, I'd suggest trying ./startup [port number] &

Well, just try. It's not like the server will explode if you get it wrong. That said, I'm pretty sure you only need ./startup because both 'nohup' and '&' are used inside the script itself when running the executable.

Edit: You can either change the port in the script (near the top) to be able to start it with just ./startup. Otherwise you use ./startup <port>.

ok, i tryed to start it up and i got this message

/bin/bash: ./startup: /bin/bash

any ideas on what i'm doing wrong?

There is usually a startup script included with the codebases. This script simply runs the executable. The short answer is if you simply want to turn the server on just run the executable.

What did you type?

i typed './startup' like people said, i also tried './startup <my port>' and 'nohup ./startup'

i had already compiled the code, and went to the bin folder in the code by doing "cd /home/mydirectory/swrip200/swrip200/bin"

It was suggested that you try to run the executable directly instead of the startup script. How did you do that?

on the advise of one of my friends, i deleted the code i was using and put a stock swrip200 in it's place to eliminate the minor changes i had made (incase they are the reason for the problems with startup), i changed the port and went into src and typed make all to compile and this is what i get

You didn't have to do that, as long as the old code was compiling correctly; your friend gave incorrect advice or it was misunderstood.

In any case, the error in all of that is:
act_move.c:604: error: lvalue required as left operand of assignment

so that is the one you will need to fix. You should post that line (along with some context) if you can't see how to fix it.

if ( drunk && !fall )

i found the problem, my count was off, the code is

EXIT_DATA *tmp = get_exit( backroom, vdir );
int fulldist = tmp->distance;

bxit->distance = fulldist - distance;
}
}
(EXIT_DATA *) pexit = xit;
return room;
}

after looking at act_move in the stock swrfuss code, i saw this
EXIT_DATA *tmp = get_exit( backroom, vdir );
int fulldist = tmp->distance;

bxit->distance = fulldist - distance;
}
}
*pexit = xit;
return room;
}

after changing the line to the one from swrfuss, it compiled correctly, turns out i had messed up the compile the first time.

You should use a text editor that gives you line numbers; it's going to be very hard to write code if you have to count lines by hand like that. There are many Windows text editors that do this (and have other features); try Notepad++, Crimson Editor, gVim, xEmacs, even Word Pad. I'm assuming that you're using Windows, but there are very many text editors for other platforms as well.

Also, yes, if the original compilation failed, then you wouldn't have been able to run the MUD. That is why people were asking if the executable was in fact there. Are your problems fixed now?
