GUI for TBAmud was created by WhiskyTest
I've just found out that Graphical User Interfaces are a thing for MUDs!
That was super exciting until I looked into it further and found that the code to support these is already sitting in tbaMUD!!

There are lots of old forum posts around the place particularly from KaVir about implementing nice looking GUIs but being very new to the concept I am lacking some of the assumed knowledge that is required to get this working.

The steps seem simple enough:
[1] Use a client that supports MSDP
[2] Connect to tbaMUD and auto-negotiate will detect MSDP support
[3] invisible MDSP commands are sent from the server to the client and update elements of the GUI

I use Mudlet 2.1, which supports MSDP. But when connecting to my locally running copy of tbaMUD it sets MSDP to NO, so this is the first obstacle.

Logging into GodwarsII has an automatic Mudlet downloader which gives a nice map, health bars and so on. It seems to be using MXP - has this superseded MSDP?

What I am wanting to do is create a custom GUI that updates from tbaMUD server commands.
Reading through the forums and help files that came with the protocol plugins has been helpful, but there are some simple steps I'm clearly missing :D

Has anyone had any experience with creating GUI's that can point me in the right direction?
