Re: [gopher] This game I have been working on might be of interest to Gopherites...

I actually tried Putty last night and it doesn't follow RFC making it not work sadly. I am working on a vt100 emulator made in SDL, so it will be fully cross platform, and even support game specific features. This client will also be able to play .MOD files as you play the game. Not sure why so many telnet clients out there don't follow RFC, and base their settings solely on how the UNIX telnetd works. I can't maintain a server that supports every single type of client quirk.

I also recently found out that the Windows telnet client(at least on XP)
doesn't work very well.
And Windows 7 doesn't come with a Telnet client at all--you have to know
the magic incantation to install it afterwards. If you haven't already, you
may want to consider implementing a web-based client. There are flash and
java-based ones that you can just plug your hostname into, or you could set
up a Websocket server and have a pure _javascript_ one.

(Personally, I use TinyFugue. I won't be redeeming a beta code because I'm
ver y busy this week, so I'll leave them for someone else.)

What about putty? I can try to have a look at it, if I have time. I use
it mostly for SSH from windows boxen, but why not try it with telnet.
