If I wanted to start creating my own mud what would be a good program to start with? Java?
probably ,run window in classic view and java is all accelerated and with some tweak like off screen rendering etc you jump from 60 fps to 1300 graphic wise!so ya only silverlight 5 is as fast as java!
Try this link. Start out playing with existing codebases before you do something crazy like make your own.
Browse MUD forums like topmudsites and mudconnector (they have sections dedicated to builders / coders).
Despite java isn't a program but a language, yup, it's doable.
Java's portable and quite easy to learn and use.
Good luck !
Thx for the info.
