Using Fire Client - Multimedia-enhanced MUD client
Read below to learn about the various built-in functions and operations Fire Client supports. Each command should be prefixed with whichever character you have specified in your options file as the Command Character (the default is '/'). For example, use: "/echo Current XP is: @XP" to display a message into the MUD client window.

    Command[|Alternates] [Parameters] <optional> Description
    ADD [filename] Adds the file with path filename to the current playlist. Does not resolve URLs.
    ALL <message> Sends message to all open windows. If the message is another command, that command is executed in all windows.
    CLEARTEXT | CT Clears the text in the MUD output window.
    CLOSE Closes the active window in which the command was issued (note: this also disconnects you from the MUD).
    CONNECT Connects you to the MUD set as the host for the current window.
    DISCONNECT Disconnects the current MUD session.
    ECHO <message> Echos message to the MUD output window replacing variables w/their current values.
    FPHIT [variable name] [variable value] Using the Firebolt account information stored for the current window to post a value to firebolt.com, which can then be used to incorporate dynamic information into that account's Fire Portal.
    HIT [URL] Sends an HTTP get request for the URL specified by URL, but disregards the resulting response. Used to increment counter scripts and other web-based information services. Using variables greatly expands on the functionality. For example, "/hit http://www.yoursite.com/counter.php?count=@count".
    LOCALECHO Toggles whether outgoing commands are echoed to the active window.
    NEW Opens the New Connection dialog.
    NEXT Jumps to the next song on the current playlist.
    OFF [classname] <itemname> Deactivates classname's member itemname if specified, otherwise it disables the entire class classname.
    ON [classname] <itemname> Activates classname's member itemname if specified, otherwise it disables the entire class classname.
    PAUSE or P Toggles whether the active window will continue to automatically scroll to the bottom of the window each time new text is received. Used to read a big chunk of text on a busy MUD or after you've paged back through the output window and want to resume normal window scrolling behavior.
    PLAY <URL> Plays the current song on the playlist or downloads and plays the .wav, .mid, or .mp3 file pointed to by URL is specified.
    PREVIOUS Plays the previous song on the current playlist.
    QUIT Disconnects all sockets, closes all windows, and closes Fire Client.
    RANDOM Randomly selects a song from the playlist and begins playing it.
    RECONNECT Disconnects (if connected) from the current host and establishes a new connection to the MUD server.
    RUN [filename] Executes the file pointed to by filename. Commands are handled as if they were typed into the Windows Run menu.
    SAVE Saves the options for the current window.
    SET [varname] [value] Updates the value of variable varname to value.
    SETTINGS Opens the settings dialog window.
    STOP Immediately stops the playback of the current song or playlist (if playing).
    TOGGLE [classname] <itemname> Toggles the activation of class classname's member itemname if specified, otherwise it toggles the status of the entire class classname.
