Many MUDs look very ugly on mobile phones, and unfortunately MM is no exception.

This is because when mobile mud clients output a sentence that is too long for a phone screen, the sentence is split into two sentences, followed by an unattractive black area in the empty spac.

I'll give an example.

Several MUDs like Discworld have implemented such a screenwidth-toggle and made mobile mudding much easier.

Of course, if MM rooms have hardcoded line breaks then this might be a lot more of a hassle, but if we do it, it will be much easier to play MM on mobile. If we ever do release an MM mobile app, new mudders also will enjoy the game much more.

Thanks!

It's hard line breaks, most things expect an 80 column terminal, adjust your font for that and it will mostly be good (looks like your's is 52 in that image).  A few commands annoyingly are wider (affects, gold/bank, boss).
