Re: Demo BBS - File Libraries

As a side note, while trying to read some interesting DOC in the File Libraries (CTRL-V on a TXT file), I got disconnected abruptly (maybe a file pointer to NULL? ) The telnet daemon was down for couple seconds, then it resumed.

Re: installed but confused

I also had the issue with C:\BBSV10\wgsappgo.EXE not doing anything. I just killed W32MKDE.EXE and restarted wgsappgo.exe as administrator (was too quick initially and ran as unprivileged!) For the initial IP setup, I just got it working by setting "IPADDR" set to AUTO. My local (dhcp) IP ...

Re: MBBS v10 Open Beta Thread

Found that In WIN10 console, to register an ALT you need to press CTRL+ALT So CTRL+ALT+W for the Worldlink Scheduler. What's strange is that the tab shortcuts with CTRL+ALT works for all except (A)ccount, (E)mulate, (U)sers. TAB key works fine, so I can reach those tabs this way instead. There must ...

Anyone playing this game and wants to collaborate/share hints ?

I would post questions here, but some clues might be in the questions (spoilers) so privately might be best.

Cheers,

Re: Article about Tim Stryker's Aztarac arcade game

IMHO he's one of the early adopter of the concept of "networking" but with micro-computers.. And for sure, back then optimization was key to transition anything theoritical to practical. In his 1980 interview in BYTE magazine, he explains how he conceptualized a multiplayer game (flash att...
