• Old ComPort Door Games

    From Exodus@25:25/0 to All on Sun Jul 17 11:39:10 2022
    So, I went and did it. I made a work around to allow the BBS to run ComPort only (Non-FOSSIL) Door games. Telnet over today and play some old time greats.

    Cripple Smash
    Yankee Trader
    Uncertia: The Unknown Quest
    All DreamWARE Doors
    All UltraSoft Doors

    .... and more! Adding more as we go along and I find ones worth running. This takes the BBS up to around 440 total LOCAL Doors now. Come give them a try.

    ... The gene pool has no lifeguard

    This is great man. I was just over there playing. Great performance on all the games. Yankee Trader is running super fast.

    Really nice setup!

    Thanks ... few kinks to work out, but otherwise it is running like I want it. I added TAME just to be on the safe side since I had a RG node open all the time waiting for a local ip telnet call.

    Really nice setup!

    Thanks ... I just downloaded another 100 or so comport doors ... so I'll be adding those here over the next few weeks. Installs taketo damn ong. :)

    I forgot about TAME. I don't know if I quite need it yet since I don't have DOS stuff open nonstop -- would it help with door performance?

    I've been consistently impressed with how fast Renegade/Netfoss/net2bbs is. It's just very smooth, even while gaming.

    You're a madman! Where do you find all these doors? You must have the most extensive collection of running doors of any BBS out there. I don't know how you do it!

    ahahah ... Danger Bay got me beat. He has 1500 I think .... he wants to be the door game meuseum. I just want a bunch. :)

    Apartently TAME makes OOII come to a CRAWL. :( Dunno why that would be, maybe because it was updated since TAME?!?! I dunno.

    This may be a retarded question but you are testing these comport-doors for dropping carrier?

    Yeah .... I think the issue is Yankee Trader ... somehow it didn't jive with BNU and NetFoss in Windows ... I switched over to x00 to see if Windows likes it better .... I think this would've worked better if I had the comport BBS in a VM, but it made the bbs machine come to a crawl that way.

    This is the same exact problem every time a dialup-caller logged in when I tried running things in a VM. The Fossil driver completely ties up the CPU
    with I/O port calls for the modem. It didn't matter if Vmware was set to poll or yield the CPU usage on the serial port.

    Maybe you should ask our resident professor how to fix it?

    HAHAHAHAHHAHAH .... I THINK I found a shitty work around .... Since NetFOSS spawns a cmd window for each node, at the end of my batch file before the window closes, I spawn out into another window and kill te task I was just in.


    Since everything was closed, except for the FOSSIL comport shitshow, it SEEMS to work .... but for how long, who knows?! But we'll see ....

    ... My other tagline's a Rolex...

    Yankee Trader famously has issues with FOSSILs. You probably won't see any difference with the other driver. And it laughs at NetFoss.

    This is specifically why I run this door in DOSBox-X:

    Been my top played door for nearly two years.
