Hi. I''m pretty new to programming (unless I count the old days of using basic). I''ve been learning Java on my own and have taken a class in it. I havent did anything in graphics just text and database type beginner things that have nothing to do with games like CD Organizer, classroom grading program. Also made a card game, tic tac toe, all the stuff that us peons can do. Anyway. I was wondering if anyone knew of any code out there in Java for a mud? I know there is alot of C++ code for them, but I didn''t know if one was created in Java ever. I suppose I could always give up on Java for now and learn C++ since it seems like most people use that, but I would rather learn more about java first. I want to create a little text based game that you can walk around in like a mud, but with no internet play. I already built a little creation program that lets you build text files for the rooms and such. Please let me know if you know about about anything out there. This is my first question on here so bare with me. Thanks.

A quick Internet search for "java mud" reveals:

http://www.goodnet.com/~esnible/javamud.html
http://www.javamud.org/

These should get you started.

Java and C++ are very, very similar. Java is based on C++. You could probably port a C++ mud to Java without too much trouble.

I checked out those links and they seem to be like most of the stuff I find. They are either graphical games or works in progress(usually graphical also). I was hoping to just find something like dikumud or circlemud or anything basic like that but in Java.

Thanks for the help though. I will keep looking.

Java is NOT based on C++, it''s syntax looks like it, but it is different in many things from C++

Java Examples in a Nutshell (the companion book to Java in a Nutshell) has an example for a MUD.

Even better try http://www.mugu.org/

They have source code available for the MUGU graphical RPG.
