technologies were forgotten or lost across a hundred

CoA uses port 23 the default telnet port but it also has one dynamic port you can change!
This dynamic port was originally created for those in the military that have telnet access
but on a different and secured port, also if you have a server with a company they might assign you
a port and it won't be their main port 23 which they probably use for internal reasons.
If you change this default port keep in mind to relaunch CoA.

You want to start in subProcessUserLine procedure, this is where commands sent by the
players is matched up.

Having issues installing VB6 sr 6 to Windows 10? There is help!!
this proves you didn't make the wrong choice many still love and use VB6 its a great language!!

After the year 2035 You can use this code as opensource for your own personal or commercial
requirements. Hopefully I got my $6000 in hardware that burnt out coding and running this MUD,
before you make yours. :)

For now you may distribute the coaclient.exe and installation EXE so your players can play,
keep the source code to yourself, however. You may sell items and housing in the game as you wish,
to generate some money for yourself, meanwhile.

Enjoy my work! Try not to remove my name from anything.

You can get ahold of me directly at I do not mind helping individials so
do not be worried about contacting me even to, say 'hi', I am all about the player base.
