Sample Prompts

Default prompt

  • PROMPT %E%B <%hHp %mM %vmv>

A relatively simple prompt that also displays xp and enemy condition.

  • PROMPT %h/%Hhp %m/%Mm %v/%Vmv %x/%Xxp %e - %E

A prompt with no data (good for non-combat characters or screen readers)

  • PROMPT ^N

This is the prompt delevoped for bardic characters. It displays the current attack state of the player at the beginning and the room name at the end which is useful for exploring (which is a big deal to bards and their sub classes) The colors picked highlight well (ie: bright red and cyan).

  • PROMPT %E%B^W<^rHP:^c%h/%H ^rMA:^c%m/%M ^rMV:^c%v/%V ^rXP:^c%x/%X ^r%z^W>

A prompt useful for keeping characters separate by adding their name at the beginning of the prompt. It also displays the health of the current enemy on the first line, and contains other useful information with different colors to easily pick out the difference of each stat versus it`s maximum, including experience needed until next level.

  • PROMPT %E%B MyName <^c%h^?/%H ^b%m^?/%M ^g%v^?/%V ^p%X^?>

This prompt is for use with a screen reader, with a double linebreak at the end of the prompt. Mana is optional, depending on if the character uses mana. Without the linebreaks, any command will have the prompt read both before the command's output and after.

  • PROMPT %h %m %v %E %B %B

A complex, mulitline prompt with encumbrance, time, alignment and experience. This prompt is great for alignment-driven classes:

  • PROMPT ^r%h/%Hhp^? ^g%m/%Mmp^? ^c%v/%Vmv^? %B %c/%C items %w/%W lbs %G %T o`clock %B %a align %X tolvl > %B %E

A prompt that will display your hitpoints, mana, movement, hunger, thirst, time, experience to next level, location, and the health of the current enemy.

  • ^w<^r%h/%H ^N| ^b%m/%M ^N| ^g%v/%V^N | Hunger:^p%-HUNGER^N Thirst:^P%-THIRST^w>%B<^N%t | %X Exp Needed^w | ^N%z>%B^R%E^N

A simple prompt that adds in abilities currently affected by mana compound (extra cost) or on cooldown (cannot cast until off cooldown):

  • ^hCooldowns:^? %u%0D^N%E<^h%hhp ^m%mm ^v%mv^N>

Notes

  • If you have edited your prompt and wonder why the enemy health information is no longer displayed, it is due to the %E%B at the beginning of the factory prompt.
  • In Mudlet, if you are unable to see your prompt, try enabling MXP.
