Many people use Winterhawks Path/Data update
to fix older copies of megamud getting lost and unable to find places (in MajorMUD 1.11p MOD9). We have taken this
a step further and updated the install file so its already done for you, and it's setup
to telnet into ods.ods.net without any extra configuration needed! Start playing now!
If you have MegaMUD installed on your computer, please uninstall the
current version before installing this. Remove it by going to your control panel
and then find it listed under the Programs and Features icon. Highlight and remove.
Write down registration information BEFORE removing it.
Also check the directory below for lingering files not deleted,
skipping this step might leave unwanted data that will cause problems.
(replace "username" with the current username logged into windows)

Q. MegaMUD keeps getting lost or can't find the location and I've already installed Winterhawks path/data fix?
A. Windows 7 and Windows Vista have new security and install features, when you tried
to use winterhawks path/data fix it was not properly installed... you will need to uninstall megamud
from the windows control panel (software add/remove -or- Programs and features) then double check the
directory below to make sure nothing was left behind. (Change "username" to your windows logon username currently being used)
Alternatively, you can set permission on your current windows user account to have administrative priviledges.
Or make it easier on yourself and always logon as the administrator for your computer.
Q. MegaMUD won't go anywhere when I select a goto or path to loop around?
A. Check to see that ansi colors are being displayed on the BBS. Most systems have a globals package that
will allow you to toggle this setting on and off. (On ODS BBS type "=a" without the quotes to
toggle ansi colors)
