How to install TinTin++ on MacOS

The easiest way to install TinTin++ on Mac OS X is by installing the Homebrew package manager first. After you've installed Homebrew you can use:

brew install tintin



in the terminal to launch TinTin++

Creating a start up script for WinTin++

When starting up WinTin++ it tries to read the file 'main.tin' by default, this feature will be used in the following walkthrough example:

  • After starting WinTin++ you should check out the #config command. For example, if you want speedwalk disabled per default you would want to type: #config speedwalk off, if you type #config without an argument you will get a list of things you can configure. Set the configurations to your liking and type: #write main.tin, this will save your changes.
  • If you want to edit main.tin directly you can do so by opening the file with wordpad (don't use notepad) in the WinTin++ directory. You can configure Windows to automatically open .tin files with Visual Studio Code to get syntax highlight editor and easy changes to your settings.

If you want WinTin++ to automatically connect and login to your favorite mud ( upon startup create a PROGRAM START event, for example:

#event {PROGRAM START} {#session mume 4242}

This would make you connect to MUME. It sets the session name to 'mume'.

To save the event once again enter:

#write main.tin 

to save the changes.
