Classic Dr Who Fans?

Ayyy Any Classic Dr Who fans around? I recently found an almost complete
collection of all classic on archive.org, including modern animations of the
infamous "lost" episodes such as "Power of the Daleks" and the missing parts of
"The Tenth Planet" !!

Exitilus 2.05 Reset

Unfortunately, the game data in Exitilus 2.05 has become corrupted. This is a
known bug in this game and happens from time to time.

The only way to fix this is to completely reset the game. Is anyone opposed to
a reset?

Otherwise, I'll plan on resetting the game soon.

Ugh, sorry for the trouble. Maybe it doesn't work on mobile devices?

By Damage Control on Jan 28th 2024 at 11:08pm

Yes it works on mobile. I actually voted twice. I was voter #17 from my pc.
It's the plus symbol next to the number of votes. About halfway down the left
column of that page you'll see "votes" and then some number (the tally of
votes). So I decided to try it from mobile and see if it worked. I typed in the
same url (make sure to use the www first and type the whole long address) and
the same screen came up on my phone. Halfway down is "votes" and it said 17. So
I clicked the blue plus sign next to the 17 and it turned it into 18.
Refreshing the pc, that page now says 18 votes. So yeah it works. I tried to
click the plus again on the pc but it was hip to me by then and told me only
one vote is allowed. (oops on voting from phone and pc but I was testing lol)

By Booch on Jan 30th 2024 at 10:30am

Heh, I wouldn't worry about that one extra vote. Thanks for testing that!

any chance at making a middle ground LORD? Like only a few IGMs (like stabs)
not all those weird ones that make the game annoying AF?

By Booch on Apr 4th 2024 at 8:39am

I've only heard the exact opposite - that the IGMs are great and fun. Several
of them have been added by request.

By Jessrond on Apr 4th 2024 at 8:14pm

I personally find most of them confusing, I like simpler ones, I'd be
interested in a semi-tournament with fewer IGMs... but I may be alone. My LORD
experience is more from Nuklear/Stabs, I was a bit young for LORD (9 in 1994)

By Jessrond on Apr 16th 2024 at 10:49am

they are Blarney Stone something like forgery, and a fishing one that isn't as
fun. Some of them want to be reigstered, so they may be long gone or old
relics of BBS days.

Grats Cannon! At least I got on the board this round lol

By Booch on Jan 15th 2024 at 9:42am

The prize options this time around are dungeon theme tabletop games. I own
Welcome to the Dungeon and Dungeon Mayhem. One Card Dungeon is on its way :)

Of the two I own we have enjoyed playing and each have their own unique play
mechanics.

I tend to not be a huge fan of dice games, but I'll give One Card Dungeon a
shot. I believe it's a solo game, unlike the other two. There are a couple of
other dungeon crawler solo play tabletop games I have that are fun and have
offered as prize options in the past: One Deck Dungeon and Deckbox Dungeons. Of
the two, I've really enjoyed playing Deckbox Dungeons and recommend the game to
anyone I can :)

In fact, I was so inspired from the play mechanics of Deckbox Dungeons that I
developed a small game with similar mechanics and gameplay: Ruins of Kaldore.
Check it out in the Fighter's Guild if you haven't yet!

Congratulations, winner! I came in late, so I didn't get to see much action,

Practical Use For Telnet In 2023?

I wonder, what is the practical use of telnet in modern time?
I mean, we can talk, we can play some text based games, but what is the practical use of this thing?
I'm asking, because i want to write a telnet based application, but i can't think of any good application of the telnet. Because most of people around me will never use it.
I just want to kow you opinion on it.

Comments:

By Doomii_Blue on Dec 31st 2023 at 8:07am

Only good use i can think of is making i a good application to connect to
bbses. You can try that with the TELNET protocol.

By Booch on Jan 2nd 2024 at 3:45pm

Good question! These days, due to its lack of encryption, most software tries
to not use telnet and SSH instead for connecting to servers. BBS software is an
exception, however all modern BBSes offer the ability to connect with SSH so
that the connection is secure. The SSH port for this BBS is 2222 if you wish to
connect using SSH instead of telnet.

By Sphere on Jan 4th 2024 at 7:53pm

There are still a few old devices that don't support SSH (or HTTPS, or other
encrypted protocols). Some 'legacy' BBS software has a telnet server but not
an SSH server, like DOS, OS/2 or Win16/early Win32 software included only
telnet, either because of computing power limitations or because that was
generally what people used. For those, you need a telnet client. Likewise, if
you want to use old DOS BBS terminal clients, the serial-to-TCP/IP adapters
(e.g., in Dosbox) for those really only support telnet out of the box. It is
possible to hack together something to use SSH with Telix under Dosbox for
example, but effectively you have to script something or telnet through your
local machine or something of that sort.

In general, though, it is recommended in this day and age to use SSH instead.
Syncterm for example supports SSH. If you use Telnet, anyone sniffing
(eavesdropping on) your packets, like your ISP or someone else on your wi-fi
network, can get your passwords and take over your session and pretend to be
you. In practice, this isn't usually a problem for BBS usage, but this is
mostly because people "don't care enough" about what you are doing to start
messing with it. If that bothers you, then SSH is probably the answer and I'd
encourage SysOps to promote use of SSH, to make BBS communications secure in
the same way as most other modern Internet communication.

Ive found out how to get serial connection such as null modem and modem dial-up
working. Problem is, i need someone to test it from a acctuall distance to see
if it works, if you have a dial-up game like DOOM or HERETIC please be willing
to try test it, only 1 person can test at a time as modem usally supports only

very well.

By Booch on Nov 14th 2023 at 8:34am

Hey there Dude1! Welcome to the BBS and thanks for joining!

I think the best tip I can offer is just to look around and explore! The
Courtyard (main menu) has a lot of options, but don't let that overwhelm you.

Most notable on the BBS are the old door games, most from the 90's. You'll find
those in the Fighter's Guild and the Mage's Guild. The most popular game on the
BBS is Legend of the Red Dragon (LORD). There are two games of that running:
the Tournament and Extreme.

You've already found the Bulletin Board, which is great. Because this is the
central hub for people to communicate on the BBS.

You can also check out The Oracle, which is unique to this BBS. She's kinda fun
to interact with.

Another place to check out is the Tavern. The cosysop and I usually hang out in
there on weekdays and we always try to be available for chat, so feel free to
stop on by!

By Dude1 on Nov 15th 2023 at 5:28pm

you for the information! (yes I have just found the color options)

I've found LORD recently, and so far I've gotten kind of hooked on the
whole 'door game experience.' I think part of it is it's all text-based,
but something about that makes it all the more interesting to play, in my
opinion.

I'll see if I can make it to the Tavern sometime, and that Oracle also
sounds like something interesting I could try out.

It looks like I really do have a lot to check out, thank you again for the
information, I'll see you around the BBS!

Hello From Portugal

Hello from Portugal.
I'm totally new in the BBSes world and I'm really enjoying it.
I found this BBS in one comment from Reedit where I asked from help.

Still exploring, if you have any suggestions for other BBSes I will happy to
check them.

See you

Welcome to the the Realm of Serion BBS! I hope you enjoy it. Maybe check out
the LORD Tournament!

Global War Reset

Awwww! I finally hit 80 points and reset the Global War game, and it doesn't
even say anything or have the Hall of Fame working, it just resets all the
scores to zero and doesn't say a word?

:(

That's a wee bit anticlimactic lol

Comments:

By Booch on Dec 12th 2023 at 9:57pm

Huh, that's odd. I haven't heard of issues of that before.

By Booch on Dec 12th 2023 at 10:00pm

The Hall of Fame looks like it's not working. Must be a bug in Global War.

By Sphere on Dec 13th 2023 at 9:25pm

Congrats on winning Global War, Mantis ...
... you know, I'd have been tempted to just write "I WIN GLOBAL WAR!" or
something - very humble to do it as a bug report ;)

By Mantis on Dec 14th 2023 at 7:50am

I wouldn't have posted at all but I felt a wee bit disappointed as it took a
year to hit 80 lol

Need A Small Help With Synchronet...

Well, basically... I made a small BBS for me and my friends using Synchronet.
The problem is: I don't really know how to edit the menus.

You know, the starting page... Actually, I don't know how to modify ANYTHING on
Synchronet. Does someone know how to do something?

Comments:

By Lime on Dec 7th 2023 at 4:22pm

Yes, the menu systems are in a baja file in /sbbs/exec/default.src. You can see in
there which keys have which responses, and which menu files are displayed. The menu
files are in /sbbs/text/menu.
There is a page on it here: http://wiki.synchro.net/custom:menu_files

There are also some steps around compiling thr menu file (with the baja executable) and
convincing synchronet to reload it without having to log out and back in. Let us know
how you get on!

Extreme Lord Won! Reset At Midnight And More Dragon Kills

Congratulations to Mariposa for slaying the 10 red dragons and winning Extreme
LORD!

It has been requested to increase the number of dragon kills since people are
able to use the IGMs so effectively and quickly make dragon kills.

I'll increase the number of heroic deeds (dragon kills) to 20 this time around
and see how it goes!

Good luck everyone that joins in!

Cnosu posted on Nov 30th 2023 at 1:37pm

Hehehe Hello.

I just found this BBS and man, it's beautiful. I love this. I never really were
on a bulleting board, but I finally found a great one myself. I love how the
start is written. Just wanna ask. People around told me that everyone over here
is pretty nice, and people around there aren't really much of critics. Is that
true?

Comments:

By Cnosu on Nov 30th 2023 at 2:48pm

And yes, I'm just trying out writing comments, cuz why not.

By Dude1 on Nov 30th 2023 at 10:29pm

Hey, I'm actually new here, too! I also really liked the beginning, and I think
the theming overall is just great. Fun fact (you might already know this, but
it surprised me when I figured it out), you can change the of the text in
the comments when you press ctrl-a, and I think that the ` followed by a number
also works. So far, in the few weeks I've been messing around, everyone seems
really nice. If you haven't already, defintiely try the LORD tournament!

By Cnosu on Dec 1st 2023 at 12:52am

Wait, let me try... SHUET THAT WORKS

It seems Land of Devastation might be down... Could a kind-hearted sysop or

Hi Rune,

Thanks for letting us know! I have verified there's a problem. I have a message
to DoorParty. It does seem like it's down. I'll let you know what I find.

By Booch on Nov 27th 2023 at 10:59am

Ok, the DoorParty admin rebooted the server and this is fixed!

Further Problems With LoD...

Sorry again, Booch.. I got booted from LoD kjhkhj

Comments:

By Rune on Nov 27th 2023 at 7:30pm

Oop, sorry about that! lol

Anyway, I got booted from LoD and now it thinks I'm still using it so can't
start up again. Could you please look into it again? m(_ _)m

By Rune on Nov 28th 2023 at 2:00am

Ah, looks like things are all good now. Sorry for the trouble!

By Booch on Nov 28th 2023 at 4:48pm

Hi Rune!

I think what may have happened is it may have taken a bit for LoD to detect you
disconnected, so it wouldn't let you in. Once the game figured out you weren't
there anymore, it disconnected and then you were able to log in again.

Sorry for the trouble... these old games all have weird quirks...

By Rune on Nov 28th 2023 at 7:11pm

Makes sense! Thanks as always! m(_ _)m

Exitilus 2.05 Corruption Issues

Unfortunately, recently two times now Exitilus 2.05 has become corrupted,
causing gameplay issues. The game has been fully reset again, hopefully
resolving this issue.

Lord Extreme Corrupted. Restored, Reset And Working Again

Unfortunately, this happens from time to time. In LORD, the player.dat file can
become corrupted. It's a very rare occurence (this is only the 2nd time it's
happened). When it does happen, there's no way to fix it.

LORD Extreme has been restored from backup, has been reset and is working
again. Sorry for the trouble this has caused! Good luck to all that play
Extreme!

Haha I had strange issues.

I am new to BBSing but I love "retro" computng. I'm currently writing this on
a Book8088 with a NecV20. The graphics absolutely crawl across my terminal haha
Abraham Lincoln was right though, 640KB of memory is all anyone really ever
REALLY needs!




By Sphere on Nov 5th 2023 at 9:51am

Awesome, I thought of buying one of those Book8088 machines, but I already have
a desktop XT clone (NuXT, installed in an ATX case, in case you're interested).
Also a V20, and can run LORD locally, or Telix at 9600 bps nulled into a Linux
machine with Internet access so it can get to telnet boards. I normally just
use syncterm though :)

By Booch on Nov 7th 2023 at 9:05am

Wow, definitely some hardware envy on my end, haha! Thanks for visiting! I hope
