MUSHclient is a MUD client written and maintained by Nick Gammon. First developed in late 1995 as shareware, the client was released as freeware along with its source code in April 2007.[1]


The program supports a variety of popular functions found in the high-end MUD clients, such as aliases (input abbreviations), hotkeys, triggers (text-matching), command-execution timing, variables, multi-session support, ansi-colour customisation and speed-walking. Other notable features include the search through the comparatively huge scrollback and user-input histories as well as MUD-server independent chat for increased privacy.[2] In July 2008, as part of the 4.34 release, support for "miniwindows" - scriptable rectangles of space on the screen which can be drawn to directly - was added, allowing plugin developers to create widget-like visual representations of MUD data.[3][4]

MUSHclient offers extensive scripting support via the Windows Script Host-supported languages, such as VBScript and JavaScript, as well as the, since November 2004 implemented, platform-independent Lua-scripting. The scripting is performed via a series of built-in script-functions combined with the standard scripting operators. These can be executed either via one global scripting-language selected in the client or by adding language-independent plugins.

In June 2007 Internationalisation support was added, enabling the players to customise the messages and menus be displayed in the desired language.[5]


Although primarily written for Microsoft Windows, MUSHclient has been successfully run both under the Linux Operating System, by using the Wine,[6][7] and the Mac OS X via Boot Camp and Parallels Desktop for Mac.[8]
