This time I need some assistence regarding the VIP MUD client itself.
My operating system is a 64 bits Windows 8.1.
For playing MUDs, I am mostly using VIP MUD client v2.0.
Since some of my favorite MUDs, like Discworld and Materia Magica, require a registered version of this MUD-client, I payed for its registration to GMA Games a couple of days before,(it was their site I downloaded the program from round a month ago), and the process seemed to function just fine, only a few minutes after my PayPal payment, my VIP MUD program got registered, it only asked for my registration name at its start, (just like before), and after I inserted it, I received no more demo-related warnings when running it. )ever again since that very moment)
For my logic, it is obvious that the program got registered, I just find it a bit strange, how the process happened this fast, and why I was asked no personal ID, code, or serial number, which were sent to me in email a few hours later, but I asked around inside certain MUD communities, and other mudders approved, that this is the way how the process usually works with VIP MUD.
However, asuming my registration is indeed complete and successful, I have the following issue with my VIP MUD copy:
According to the so called, TTS Discworld soundpack instalation instructions for VIP MUD v2, there are supposed to be 3 files in the original VIP MUD installation folder, (which is by default inside C:/Program Files (x86) directory), 3 files, which are supposed to be copied to the VIP MUD directory located in" my (users) Documents" folder.
I noticed, that 2 of those listed files already exist in both of the mentioned folders, wile the 3rd one is completely missing from both of them.
Since I still do have problems, or at least issues regarding the Discworld TTS soundpack, (for example neither ignoring, nor playing sounds of classes is functioning, not even gag-settings in general), I must presume, that the required 3rd, missing file is causing those issues.
Normally I also asked around, and found out, that the most of players using the registered version of VIP MUD v2, do have that file in their default VIP MUD installation folder, so I fear the problem may be either with my client-settings, or eventually with its registration, which may still be in some kind of pending phase.
What I ask of You guys is the following little favor:
Those of You, who use the registered version of VIP MUD v2.0, please check, if a file named bg.dm is present inside Your default VIP MUD installation folder, and if so, please notify me of it here, along with the operating system You are using. )namely, I suspect, that the existence or non-existence of that file, can have something to do with the OS used by our computers, or even directly depend on it)
So once again, the name of that dubious file is: bg.dm
And it should be located in the VIP MUD installation folder, which is by default under the "Program Files (x96) directory" of Your C: drive.
Please don't forget to name Your operating system as well!
In case even those of You, who use the same operating system as myself, meaning a 64 bits Windows 8.1, do have that file in Your VIP folder, I shall contact GMA Games, and ask them about the matter, but there is maybe no issue present at all, so I would like to avoid disturbing, or alerting them without any valid reason.
I would also welcome any explanations of the function of that bg.dm file, meaning what is it actually used for by the VIP client, since I haven't managed to find any clues for it on the internet so far.
