  1. Ability to have a radial control mapped to control command history?

    So, I use command history a lot and I hope I'm not the only one who does for the sake of this idea. XD However, it'd be really cool if I could scroll through command history with the gesture interface somehow...or I really like the idea of being able to switch out one of my command radial controls for a command history radial control. For instance, flick it up to move back in command history and down to move forward (latest).

    • Cursor movement/Screen drawing

      I play a MUD that draws and updates a map in the top left corner of the screen. This telnet client ignores the cursor movement commands though :(

      If you get a chance, see if you can get this client working with:
      dragonsspine.com:3000

      It's the old Island of Kesmai game, and I'd love to be able to play it from my iPad. Thanks!

      • Selection Stuff

        As it is, MUDRammer doesn't really show you which like you've selected, which can be a bit annoying when you have single-lines. Maybe have like a highlight that shows what you picked?

        Also, would it be possible to make it so you can select specific words or multiple lines to copy-paste?

        • Export & Import

          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?

          • Notes Area

            There are many things in my favorite MUD that I'd like to remember. Say for instance, a vial that when quaffed paralyses you for a half an hour. Since they all look similar, I've been keeping notes. Problem is I don't always have my notes with me. Having a simple area for notes that I could quickly reference would be great!

            • ssh connection

              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.

              • 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…

                    • Custom on-screen buttons

                      I love the radial control, but it would be good if it can allow users to create on-screen buttons with the folllowing features:
                      1. able to custom the button label and label size
                      2. able to custom the command for the button
                      3. able to custom the position of the button
                      4. able to custom the size of the button

                      • ANSI Adjusting

                        This is... Entirely a visual preference. But I was thinking the ANSI from two versions ago (including the current version) (it's 1.7.3, right now) was perfect. Just a thought!

                          Sorry about all the mess with colors! It’s definitely a challenge to pick a color set that works with as many themes as possible.

                          Can I ask which Theme you’re using now? And which colors in 1.7.1 were you keen on?

                        • Swiping to change worlds

                          I like how the quad will indicate if there is activity on another server, but it feels that there are too many steps involved in switching over (tapping the quad to expand the list, then tapping the server, and then having to tap down on my input line once again). Would it be possible to implement a quick swipe to cycle to the next server in the list of what's open, or perhaps an option to tap at the right or left edges of the screen to have it switch to the next in line without having to go through…

                          • 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…

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

                                    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…
