The thread about the client is here
, I will however repeat the instructions below: http://4dimensions.org/forum/index.php/topic,730.15.html
There is also a thread here
about how to add a chat capture, developed by Bane: http://4dimensions.org/forum/index.php/topic,756.0.htmlDOWNLOAD INSTRUCTIONS
The files have been placed on 4D's server so the installation guide has been changed somewhat:
---1) Download and install MUSHclient.
The MUSHclient can be downloaded with the following link: http://www.gammon.com.au/files/mushclient/mushclient473.exe
It's recommended that you install the client in the following directory to avoid certain problems: C:\MUSHclient.2) Download and unzip the 4D-plugin.
Right click on the following link and start to download the 4D-plugin: http://4dimensions.org/home/game/site/client/4D_GUI.zip
This plugin decides where the logo's, avatars, energy bars, etc are shown in the client.
Unzip the file in the same directory where you installed the MUSHclient, which was recommanded C:\MUSHclient. Unzipping this file in the MUSHclient-directory has added a file named GUI_4d.xml in the directory C:\MUSHclient\worlds\plugins.3) Download and unzip the images-file.
Right click on the following link and start to download the 4D-plugin: http://4dimensions.org/home/game/site/client/images_4D.zip
Unzip the file in the same directory where you installed the MUSHclient. This file will add a new directory with several subdirectories, which can be found at: C:\MUSHclient\images_4d4) Add 4Dimensions to MUSHclient.
Startup MUSHclient if you haven't already.
Select File -> New World (or Ctrl + N)
At the question to preload defaults from an existing world answer no.
At the next box fill in the next fields:
World Name: 4Dimensions
MUD address and port:
TCP/IP adress: 4dimensions.org
And click the button: Save World Automatically On Close
Then click ok and you'll get a new window which will allow you to connect to 4D.5) Add the plugin.
Connect to 4D and then install the plugin:
Select File -> Plugins -> Add
At the given directory (C:/MUSHclient/worlds/plugins) look for the file GUI_4D select it, by clicking on it and click open. In the screen you get to see the following line:
Added plugin C:\MUSHclient\worlds\plugins\GUI_4D.xml
Then click close.6) Restart MUSHclient.
You will need to close the world then restart: If you're still logged on, type quit followed by zero, then:
Select File -> Close World and confirm to save everything you've just did, just click save.
Restart the client with: Select File -> Open World
Open the 4Dimensions worldfile named 4Dimensions.MCL and start playing.
You'll now see the blue 4D-logo, an avatar for whichever race your character has. For certain spells that has been cast on you, you'll see buttons on the left side of the screen. In case they're timered you'll see a small countdown.
The map will be on the right side top.
At the bottom of the screen, you'll see bars that present your health, mana and the needed experience.
Special thanks goes to KaVir from God Wars II who made this specific plugin for 4D.
To those who already downloaded the plugin at previous times, it might be wise to download the separate image-file and install it in the MUSHclient directory as it may hold other images than the original file.
