This page documents a small project of mine to re-build the Archipelago MUD as it was in the mid to late 90s, to date I have re-built and re-arranged the core areas and deactivated areas which were deprecated. The archive below provides latest versions of the files as I am working on them, Note – this not the cut down public release of Archipelago (shown in the compiling instructions below) this larger restored version should not need tweaks to the code and should compile from the src directory using ‘make’ on most unix type systems without modifying the makefile:

Archipelago src and world files latest version

Running the MUD on your own server

Also see Instructions for running the MUD I have posted, this is mainly worded for the stock/basic version of Archipelago 1 with many less features than the version I have re-built above but it gives you some idea how to compile, you shouldn’t need to make any special changes as shown in these instructions if using the full version above.
