• NetRunner Telnet v2.0 Beta 15

    NetRunner v2.0 BETA 15 has been released at www.mysticbbs.com.

    NetRunner is a SDL2-based Telnet client designed to provide the highest
    quality ANSI-BBS terminal experience. Versions are available for Windows
    XP+ and for Linux both 32-bit and 64-bit binaries.

    Sorry for the botched releases last night. I shouldn't have been doing stuff so late, but hopefully BETA 15 will return us back to stability. :)

    - Fixed a bug reading the .INI file that could cause an access violation on

    - Enabling the newer more optimized engine, which should be much faster
    than the old version. This engine is less tested, but seems stable to
    me so far.

    - Added an FPS limiter which will calculate and perform delays per frame, so
    that NetRunner never runs over 60 FPS. The new engine was getting 2654 FPS
    on my machine in standard mode (lol), and 704 FPS in upscale mode without
    this, which of course would put tremendous strain on video and CPU.

    The lowest I got was ~620 FPS in full screen upscaled with filtering at
    full screen 2560 x 1440 resoltion in debug mode. For reference those
    numbers came from a i5 2500K CPU @3.3ghz with a 770GTX video card in
    Windows 7.

    - Latest version will now have upscaling and filtering on by default in the
    netrunner.ini file. Hopefully the engine is fast enough now to support
    this change.
