First of all, sorry if this info is found elsewhere. I searched but couldn't find it.  It is my hope that if a solution is found that it helps others with the same issue.


I am running Sparta 3.x on my Incognito 800, and the clock is wrong.  I remember something about Incognito being different from RT8, but I don't remember if it's just hardware addresses that need patched, or what.


I am trying to get Carina BBS running.  It claims to use the Z: handler, but I haven't seen any Z: references in the code yet.


I have seen COMTAB+16 in the code which indicates that it reads the time from Sparta directly rather than using Z:





Edit: To clarify, the clock is CORRECT in SDX, and in anything (DOS 2.x or whatever) that uses Z:.  Is is only wrong in disk based Sparta.

Are you loading ZHAND & TDLINE w/ TD OFF? Its required for MOE to show proper time. There is a Y2K fixed TDLINE out there as well.
