Workarounds for client issues:

Issue: Telnet NOP displays as spurious character.

Known clients:

  • BlowTorch (Andr)

  • Mukluk (Andr)

Workaround:

  • In-game: Use @option NOPKEEPALIVE=off for the session, or use the /save parameter to disable it for that Evennia account permanently.

  • Client-side: Set a gag-type trigger on the NOP character to make it invisible to the client.
