On March 5, 2013, Wing Commander: New Horizon MUSH was shut down due to lack of activity. Thanks to the staff and players for your support. We had a good run and created some amazing memories. Keep in touch on the Facebook page for the game, which will be preserved.
The entire game's codebase and database (minus player information) has been open-sourced and released to the public, and the game itself is back up to help support the code at wcmush.com 2199!
If you are absolutely brand new to MUSHing, start off with our Flash-based web client. This will connect you to the game and after a moment or two, you should see our connection screen.
Once you get a bit of the hang of things, it's much more convenient to install a client, an application that can run on your desktop to connect you to the game.
There are quite a few MUSH clients out there. Here are the ones we recommend:
First, download and install the latest BeipMU from beipmu.com. When you start the program, it should look like this:
Now go to the connection menu and select 'connect', or click the left most icon on the bar that looks like a plugged in cord. This will bring up the connect screen:
We're going to create a new connection, so click the new button below then select Server. A new entry will be created, and give you the space to change the name - you can just put in 'WCNH'. Once you've named it we'll configure it. Click the newly created entry, and then fill out the info for it on the right. Here's where you use the host name and port listed above. Once you're done it should look like this (more or less):
Now you're ready to connect, so with the newly configured MUSH highlighted on the left, click the 'connect' button and you're off! See the 'Connecting' section above for more information on what to do next.
