A New Breed of MUSH Server

Start the Game

If the game is ever stopped, you’ll need to restart it.

  1. Log into your Server Shell.
  2. Type cd aresmush.
  3. Type bin/startares.

If the game is already running and you want to restart it, see Shutting Down the Game for information on how to stop the game first.

Tip: Always wait about 10 seconds or so between shutting the game down and restarting it. This ensures that everything has a chance to shut down fully and cleanly.

To ensure the game automatically restarts when the server is rebooted, see Auto-Restart After Server Reboot.

Debug Mode

Both the game and portal can be started in Debug Mode. This is good for temporary debugging, but the game only stays running as long as you’re logged in. It’s not a permanent solution.
