StormFront is an official front end (FE) for GemStone IV and DragonRealms, and works with the Windows operating system. Compared with the Wizard FE, StormFront provides more features, including a point-and-click interface, dialog boxes, and a more advanced scripting engine.

Settings

StormFront stores settings (such as highlights and scripts) separately for each character, either on the server or locally. This can be toggled inside StormFront under Options > Settings > Location.

Local settings are stored as XML files in C:\Users\<Name>\AppData\Roaming\StormFront (not the folder in which StormFront is installed).

Macros

Macros allow the user to execute a sequence of commands with a single keypress.

Special keywords that can be used in macros include:

\r - Send the command.
\p - pause 1 second before continuing.
\x - Delete the contents of the command line before continuing.
@ - Place the insertion marker here.
\? - Replace this with the contents of the command line before starting.

Unofficial Plugins

Lich (software) includes scripts that create new informational windows in StormFront, such as Uberbar and Uberspells.
