This window will allow you to set the colors sent from the game to the Nexus client to whatever your heart desires.
Nexus can have 6 to 12 buttons placed directly above the command line based on your preferences. When you character is first created it is populated with some basic commands. The buttons tab, allows you to set the number of buttons displayed and edit what each button does when clicked.
Below is an example of the button bar in the main client window.
This tab will allow you to install packages from other players. Packages is a term used to describe groups of reflexes.
By default all characters come with the Numpad movement package. This package allows you to use the numpad to move around the game world.
If you would like to create your own package, click 'Add a package' and assign reflexes to that new package in your reflexes tab.
Reflexes is an indepth subject and can be fully explained on its own page.
A variable is alphabetic character representing a value or text that may be used in a reflex. For example, a user may store the number of a pack or the name of the last player that attacked them.
Variables can then be used by other reflexes by using the @ symbol and the variable name. For example, from the image below, @pack would be replaced with my pack number, 12345. @tar will be replaces with goblin.
Your characters settings are saved on the game servers. This means that no matter what computer you play from, your character will load its latest settings.
There may be instances where you want to backup your settings. Especially if you are about to make radical changes to your reflexes and system. In that case, this tab will allow you to save your current settings you your own computer or load any settings you have previously saved.
WARNING: If you load previously saved setting from your computer, you will overwrite any changes you have made.
Most of the advanced settings are never used. Explanations for the settings are below.
- Echo all GMCP messages: This will display all GMCP messages. This will be very spammy and is only needed if you are trying to debug problems.
- Echo trigger execution: This will echo all triggers as they happen. The more reflexes your character has, the more spammy this will be. Again, this is for debugging purposes.
- Log raw output to console
- Use Secure WebSockets: Experimental
- Scrollback Limit: The more text stored in the scollback the more laggy the client can become. Increase at your own risk.
- Command Stack Delimiter: You can send multiple commands to the game by separating them with this character. By default is it the | character.
