BeipMU a feature rich client which can be downloaded from the Windows Store.
Some of its defaults are different to expected from other clients. Recommend, though optional configuration elements are shown in this article.
Support for BeipMU can be found on the BeipMU Discord server.
|Name||ThresholdRPG||Identity of the game name|
|Host||thresholdrpg.com:3333||Server address and port|
|Text Encoding||UTF8 - Unicode||Threshold supports UTF-8 text encoding|
|Enable MCMP||✔||Allows sound support from Threshold|
Once you have added the server, you need to add a character profile(s) in order for BeipMU to save your configuration settings (output/input window fonts and many of the options recommendations provided below). This is done by selecting New... > Character at the bottom of the Connect menu.
You can set BeipMU to log your character in automatically by using the Connect String feature in the character configuration screen.
DO NOT simply put your character name and password on separate lines, this will break your GMCP and prevent certain elements of this functioning for you. Instead, you need to prepend your character name and your password with a delay so that BeipMU and Threshold have a chance to negotiate about GMCP first. To do that, use the following example, substituting your character name and password.
/delay .5s charactername /delay .6s password
NB: Remember that while it is OK to put in credentials for auto-logging into Threshold, it is NOT OK to auto-reconnect and auto-login.
BeipMU's default keyboard shortcuts are different to how you may expect if you are coming from another client.
