Congratulations! Your AresMUSH game should now be up and running.
Try connecting to it via your favorite MUSH client. Use the same hostname and port number you used in the server info configuration (e.g. mygame.somehost.com 4201).
If you can’t connect to the game, review the database.yml and server.yml files in
game/config to ensure they’re correct and check the log files in
game/log for any error messages. If none of that helps, see Getting Help.
Ares comes with a “headwiz” character, akin to the “God” character on Penn and Tiny.
Username: Headwiz Password: change_me!
There’s also a “builder” character:
Username: Builder Password: change_me!
You can rename them if you like. Be sure to log them in and change their passwords!
Ares works out of the box, but there are a lot of configuration settings you can customize to get things just the way you like. See Configuring AresMUSH.
