    From Avon@21:1/101 to All on Monday, April 24, 2023 14:11:32
    An update for all nodes active in Zone 21 BRE, For Honour (FH), and Galactic Dynasty (GD)

    I have spent several hours today looking at the config of each game and trying to tidy up each game by removing inactive nodes, adding nodes that wanted to be part of each.

    I will reset each game in the next 24 hours and will send all nodes the latest config files when I do.

    I have

    - removed Electronic Warfare BBS from BRE, GD, FH (inactive for 40+ days)
    - added Aliens Alcove 4/147 to FH
    - added Freeside 2/114 to FH, GD and BRE
    - added Shurato's Heavenly Sphere 2/148 to FH, GD and BRE


    If anyone want's in or out of the current leagues, reply now so I can make changes before I press the big red button - thanks :)

    Best, Paul

    I need to hit the 'readme' on how to set this up. I have a legit copy of BRE. It would be cool to get it set up for inter-bbs games.

    OK let me know when you want to be added and I will set it up :)

    Will do. A quick scan of the 'how-to' made it seem pretty Mystic-centric, so I'll have to see if a 'filebox' is something I can fake on this ancient software. (It seems like I just need to put the files created by BRE in a specific directory and make a binkd call to 21:1/10 to send the files back
    and forth.)

    Yes please, sir. All available games.

    FYI I'll be away from home with no internet access starting tomorrow morning and going through Sunday evening, so if you don't hear from me, that's why :)

    Thanks!

    All done.

    I will send you the CFG files shortly, look for them in your inbound.

    You are node 8 in both GD and FH and node 11 in BRE

    Let me know how you get on, hopefully in the next few days some packets can start to flow back in from your end.

    Keep an eye on the echomail stats echo for a daily posting that will confirm your system is hooked up correctly for the three games.

    Best, Paul

    Cool, let me know when you think something is running for each game and I'll confirm packets etc. are being seen at my end.

    Hey Avon, I /think/ I have BRE set up - can you confirm you've received a packet from me? I haven't done anything in game yet nor have I fully set up any sort of automation on my end until I know things are working as expected :)

    If you give a thumbs up that things are good, I'm reasonably certain I can get the other games set up fine.

    Thanks!
