Here are a couple of maps from Micro Adventurer magazine:
MUD MAP1.jpg
MUD MAP2.jpg
Note that Valley is mentioned on the map. This was a second game and, I guess almost uniquely for a text adventure, you could wander between the two games but you weren't able to take objects with you. My hardcopy a3 printout from bitd has the Valley adjunct but the version of MUD.TXT available online doesn't. I'm hoping to map Micromud soon to see how much of the original mud is in there (Mud had 420 rooms with Valley an additional 90).

Thanks for that, hoglet, that'll save me an awful lot of time. It's big isn't it?

Wow. I don't even know how this version got out into the wild! No problem with it at all as it's amazing that I what I thought was lost forever can still turn up.... Well done to whomever got it to work.

Jon Stuart and I wrote Micromud back in 1984/5. We were only intending to release it on the Commodore 64 as it was the much bigger market at the time. We used the BBC Micro as our development machine with a link to downloaded the code to a C64 development environment for testing.

It was so "big" that it required data to retrieved from floppy disk in real-time and cached in-memory.

Hi, I'd like to be the first to welcome you to this All-things-Acorn forum but I bet one of the keen 'uns on here has already PMd you with a long list of questions. I started this topic a couple of years ago after finding out from a magazine about an enhanced BBC being used as the development machine for the C64 version of Micromud. I've had a go at the C64 version using an emulator and was very impressed with the program (having played MUDs myself at Essex I know what one looks like and yours was very authentic). My only gripe was that the speed of the C64 just wasn't able to do it justice. Did you consider releasing a BBC version? A sideways ram enhanced BBC or Master would have provided the necessary speed to make it an eminently playable game. Also I was wondering how much support you received from Richard Bartle? I imagine he provided a MUDDL printout of the game and you also had, I guess, access to MUD online (either the original Essex version or Bartle's paid for BT version). Looking at the BBC version I've found it appears, without close inspection, to be incomplete. Was there a more complete version? Or did you have several versions for trying different things out, after all, the game has a huge number of locations, objects, puzzles and messages. And do you or Jon still have some development stuff up in the attic which you could share with us? I'd love to know more about how you and your friend came to write 8-bit MUD.

Welcome to Stardot, Paul!

I wonder if you can shed any light on the (possibly unreleased) game Caves (aka Caves of SUD), which I think was written by Micromud co-author Jonathan Stuart?:


Are you able to confirm that it was the same Jonathan Stuart who wrote both Caves and Micromud? Do you know anything else about Caves at all?
