    I wish MUDRammer would be available for Android users. This is by far the best MUD application available to portable devices and since upgrading to a droid phone I've been left to use these poorly build applications like blowtorch.

      As an Android user, I would love to see MUDRammer on Android devices in the future. :)

      • Background Notifications

        It would nice if you could setup triggers to send notifications to the device if MUDRammer is running in the background.

          Yes! Running your triggers while MUDRammer is in the background is something that may be newly possible with iOS 7.

          iOS is unfortunately very particular about what apps can do while they’re in the background. This is one reason why it’s so challenging to reliably maintain your connection while MUDRammer is backgrounded.

          I am still investigating how this might work, or whether it’s fully feasible. Stay tuned…

        • Have a wait function

          Would be great if MudRammer could have a wait function (i.e. wait(seconds)). This would work when you have to wait when running x number of rooms before your stamina returns, or, wait until a spell has been finish casting before another spell can be started since the MUD does not allow you stack spells and introduced a delay before casting one spell and another.

          This function could be used in triggers, alias, and timers. For example, alias home w;w;w;w;w;wait(4);w;w;n;d. Or, alias spells firewall;wait(15);frostwall;wait(15).

          Aside, thank you for a great client. Use it all the time on the iPhone.

          • Copy-paste words from MUD text

            It would be cool if you could have a button to tap next to the text input box that when pressed allows you to select any word or string of words from the text on the screen, and automatically pastes it into the input box.
            This would make interaction with long-spelled objects a lot easier, since you could just type "look at" then select the word/string and then press send.

            I think it would be better if you limit the selection to only whole words too (not being able to select only half of a word, or a few letters…

              • Have better integration with iPad Pro keyboards

                I know that the iPad Pro is brand new, but the current behavior of the "bluetooth keyboard" toggle causes the QuickType suggestion bar to overlay the text input field, so you can't see what you are typing. I don't know if this also happens with Bluetooth keyboards in iOS 9 or it is just a feature of the new smart keyboard link on the Pro.

                One stop gap solution would be to just float the text entry box a little bit above the bottom of the screen, since the suggestions seem to be an 'overlay'.

                • Triggers tied to Tickers

                  First off, great job on Tickers! Question: Could the tickers be tied into Triggers? Example: Every minute that passes equates to an hour in my MUD. If I could know just before a minute passes, I could make my character more effective. I could set a Trigger for the text "The sun comes up." that would start my Ticker of 50 seconds. At the end of the Ticker I would fire a command that tells me "Tick in 10 seconds!" allowing me, if I'm able, to perform some tasks just before the tick occurs.

                  • allow me to directly post my logs to Google Drive

                    Not much here to say, but if I were to bluesky this idea, you could set up a filenaming convention for a world. For instance, something like charactername-001, charactername-002, and so on (at the very least).

                    Ideally >_>, it'd be great to be able to capture text from the terminal and be able to specify your own pattern. I do this a lot in my desktop clients. It allows me to string together something like a +time command, capture, and automatically shove that into the filename. This is great because it can keep logs ICly in order via the filename…

                      • Implement speedwalk

                        Long sets of walking paths are a pain on iOS. Alias helps, but you still have to manually type n;n;n;n; and so on.

                        A speedwalk would be a speciality alias where you input the string of dirs and the app sorts it out.

                        For example 4nws3w2s would render out into cardinals divided by semicolons.

                        • Support split view in iOS 9

                          I know it's only eye candy, but Nethack for iOS does that, and having my muddling session and my Nethack session side by side would be awesome.

                          Also great for those times when you are pretending to work...

                          • Lua scripting support

                            Having the triggers and aliases support Lua scripting would be amazing. It would add a lot more functionality! For example, I would be able to create a speed walking script. =) This would also address a lot of the ideas people have already submitted because then they could just add a script to get the function they need! Pocket MUD Pro offer this but everything else about the app sucks. Currently I am forced to use that app whenever I want to run a script. I would love to have that functionality in MUD Rammer. Hopefully this is possible with…

                            • have more configurable triggers.

                              I would kind of like a more configurable trigger system. Example.
                              Part one
                              A toggle that can set a trigger to only go off once against multiples of the same string. For example when I backstab with dual wield on aard I get 2 lines of "Your backstab" and my next atk skill is set to go off when it sees that I backstabbed something and ends up outputting my next skill 2x. Sometimes with passive second attack/third attack ability I can get up to like 4x lines of an skill output and the trigger will go off 2. 3'…

                                Me again. I know you've said that iCloud is a pain for syncing triggers, aliases, and whatnot. Would a export/import function within the app work (like a comma separated text file)? My aliases, triggers, and highlights are getting fairly lengthy and manually keeping them reconciled between my iPad and iPhone is difficult.

                                  Lots of great ideas here!

                                  Alphabetizing triggers, aliases, gags, and tickers is a great idea and it’s on my list.

                                  A few people have asked about MUDRammer for Mac. MUDRammer is my personal project in my spare time, and I don’t mean to sound crass, but it would be helpful for me to know: how much would you pay for MUDRammer for OS X?

                                • Log to Dropbox

                                  I keep all my MU logs in Dropbox folders, it'd be awesome if MUDRammer could log all my sessions there automatically.

                                    Mudrammer consistently crashes when you try to email a session log. This seems like a pretty severe bug.

                                      I'd like to be able to connect to my home computer via SSH and connect to a gnu screen running a TF session there, and use Mudrammer effectively as an iOS front end to control this remote session.

                                      Sadly, using a normal SSH client is annoying because the input line is not buffered locally on phone before sending, and can't use auto correct etc.

                                      • The ability to add custom sounds

                                        If its possible, would like the ability to be able to add custom sounds maybe from dropbox or something so we can have more trigger sound options.

                                        • Keystroke Recording & Mapping

                                          I think a nice feature would be to record a series of keystrokes and then be able to save them as an alias. This would help when trying to remember how to get from one point to another distant point in a MUD. Currently, I have to write all my keystrokes down. Maybe a simple record button in the input bar?

                                          Eventually, this feature could be further implemented into making a graphical map of the area as we trudge around our various MUDs. I realize that this would probably be a major undertaking but I think it would end up…
