Not sure what causes it, but sometimes a "ghost" prompt will appear-- I typically run #split 0 2 and have an hpbar prompt setup on line 1, but sometimes the prompt will appear on line 2 and "erase" the border between the mud output and the command line-- To fix it, I have to type in #split 0 2 and it clears line 2, however, it's very annoying to have to do this all the time-- Is there any code that I may have scripted wrong to cause it to do this? Thanks alot in advance!!

I think I may have fixed it, it only seemed to happen when ANSI code ran into each other, i.e. displaying score or guild score -- Was reading Balthus's post on packet patch/fragmentation and decided to try adding a newline to my prompt, seems to be working well so far. Kind of annoying having that extra line, but life goes on!!

It's caused by your terminal not handling \e\e correctly, always an option to find something better if you're not partial to it. I added a little hack though that'll fix this issue for the next release.

If your mud supports IAC GA (config option on some muds) that'll work as well in combination with the packet patch option.

Another option might be a stricter prompt trigger.

Sorry to bring up an old topic, but what other terminals are available? I've tried xterm, gnome-terminal, and terminator, and kind of discouraged by all of them. A tty works good but is slightly laggy.

rxvt is an option for a fast terminal emulator.

not that rxvt does any better (framed in a screen session though)
