NodeMUD

After some Googling it appears there are several Node.js MUD engines. I'm going to play around with rolling my own first.

I started by going to nodejs.org and clicking the nice Install button. After downloading I've gotten the install screen:











Node is now installed.

Running npm gives the following:

npm : Error: ENOENT, stat 'C:\Users\XXXXXXXXX\AppData\Roaming\npm'
At line:1 char:1
+ npm
+ ~~~
    + CategoryInfo          : NotSpecified: (Error: ENOENT, ...ta\Roaming\npm':String) [], RemoteException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : NativeCommandError

Googling error gives:

Making the director in Roaming fixes this.

First installing telnet via:
 npm install telnet
 
Windows does seem to install telnet by default anymore so...
 
pkgmgr /iu:"TelnetClient"
 
will add it via the shell.
