Ah nobody lieks poor Fred .
Fred is an example of a character profile.
In vipmud you can create these for different muds you play and even get the game to auto login for you. Why David greenwood used Valhalla as his example and included fred I'm not sure, but there you go.
to delete fred just use up and down arrows to select from the character list and hit delete, you'll be asked to confirm.
You can also go to the "quick connect" menu and delete any of the default muds vipmud comes with if you want too.
If the character list doesn't show up at start up you can find it with alt c for the characters menu and the first item, eg, character setup/connect (you probably used the "Quick connect" option from that menu to connect to the mud.
to create a new character profile go to that "character setup/connect" menu item, tab to "add" and hit enter then fill in the fields, you can also select the mud from the list which will fill in server and port numbers, and include name and password and check "auto login" if you want.
There are two main advantages to creating profiles.
Firstly it's quicker and easier than using quick connect especially auto login, ---- I have a vipmud shortcut on my desktop I can connect back to the last mud I played by simply using the shortcut key I setup for Vipmud and hitting enter a couple of times.
Secondly, character pfiles are what vipmud uses to store sounds and scripts, which you will need if you download soundpacks or write your own scripts and triggers such.
Our souls with high music ringing; O men! It must ever be
That we dwell in our dreaming and singing, A little apart from ye. (Arthur O'Shaughnessy 1873.)
