Re: Passwords

I think you should be able to use the set command.
set <playername> password <password>

If this does not work, there is a utility called mudpasswd
in the src/util directory that will change it for you.
I'm not too sure how far this goes back, but I know it's on
3.0pl10. :)

I think it should have compiled all the utilities the first time,
so the executable would be bin/mudpasswd.
Also, it should be recompiled if you ever changed anything in the 
playerfile, or else it will corrupt the playerfile.

Hope this helps.
