  1. Yes - Southern Amis is Atascii only so if you attempt to log-in with ascii or other, it will message Atascii only and to change your settings
  2. I run MacOS and SyncTerm and have not experienced this issue. Agree with JP maybe reinstall as your version maybe off from the last build
  3. But SyncTerm has Atascii so you get this:
  4. The board also has Busy BBS running which if the board is in use, gives you a fast message and disconnects.
  5. Southernamis.ddns.net:23 is Atari / Atascii only. The restored/New Build of AMIS, Fuji Amis is Atascii and Ascii.. A bit more to the Atascii side.. amis86.ddns.net:9000 Lets not forget it is Atari Message Information System..
  6. #BBSweek - After a month or so of grinding on the code, Fuji Amis is online and undergoing UAT and stability testing.. Modified extensively from the 1986 MACE original code, built for FujiNet or Altirra with variable baud rates, a screen driver, updated features and a bunch of improvements for the sysop, message board navigation and the option to turn on user profile / user passwords. Additional feature to reduce the once complex message compactor, is now an automated feature.. If you have a chance, atascii over to amis86.ddns.net:9000 as this is a nice piece of history and restoration that brings AMIS back after at least 20 years of being off line... Placing this project under the Southern Amis Group of Projects including the parent bbs southernamis.ddns.net:23
  7. Recently brought this version of Amis back to life. Anyone have any background on The Baudvillle? Was a MACE West I believe...
  8. Biker Bob - Let us know when your ready for some marketing
  9. Attaching Forem ST as I haven't seen the files posted. Would be great to see this running again. Tested on emulator and seems to be complete.. -Amis FoRem ST.zip
  10. Yes a very small few. Try JP's board usually pretty good luck with the dial up VOIP - Basement BBS 503-245-5416
  11. Hi Tillek - Your right XL is the current version in process for AWS and/or FujiNet. Has been a real pain and lent some of the code from XE.. All started with wanting to run on real hardware but has changed so your are correct. The XE version has been much easier to work with as the files floating around required much less programing repair.
  12. Lots of documentation for Forem XE and should be contained within the standard package from download - ATR # 3 is all docs: http://www.bbsdocumentary.com/software/ATARI/EIGHTBIT/FOREMXE/ As far as set up with FujiNet - a couple of issue with the RLISTEN need to be worked out otherwise with emulator, everything works fine. Also FujiNet has a packet issue as you will see by logging into the test board Jerry from Mouse Net has set up bbs-mousenet.dynip.online:8889 You will have to wait a long stretch to connect as the RLISTEN routine for some reason ATZ 0 reset followed by ATA for connect - you will see the modem commands after pressing return a few times.. Also - 9600 + Baud is a problem you can look at connecting with basementbbs.ddns.net:9000 and see the lock ups and how 9600 is too fast for FujiNet Southernamis.ddns.net:23 is 2400 baud and works with FujiNet but I can tell based upon the ACK occurring that data flow is not standard such as you see in SyncTerm. Large data packets could cause a lock up or delay. I haven't tried my XE or XL cart with FujiNet but have read it works.. A few returning to our community do have fully functional Forem XE boards progressing on real hardware and emulator. Emulator will come online before native hardware just due to the issue above being worked out. It will be interesting also to see if Forem experiences the same issues as BBS Express Pro and FujiNet..
  13. The bbs list is available at sfhqbbs.org
  14. The version was picked up from original disks. We compared to a few online and all seen the same. Thanks for the offer of your ATR’s and no need as we just tested and have a complete working board. Now it’s up to the sysop to take forward the final details.. Looks like we will have a few forem xl boards coming online.. appreciate the support.
  15. Thanks for checking. We just created a TXT file and it seems to be working. Not sure that will hold as the routine references password indexing.
  16. To the group - a few sysops are trying to solve a problem with ForemXE - Any insight to the PWAPP file? Seems to not be created by the initialization programs or other utilities. This group has worked through a large batch of cleaning up code and optimizing for brining up a few new BBS's. This is the last piece and a bit stuck.. Thanks!
  17. No issue here and log in regularly.
  18. I think about the engineering mind set which came from these types of hack, now called solutions. Combine the self taught knowledge of programming with the critical thinking to at a young age find such solutions and it explains a lot about our community and the Atari 8-bit Sysop generation..
  19. Just Came Across this file as Im cleaning up some disk - The MACE Amis Docs for building a ring detector.. Remember the trip to RadioShack for the relay and the awesome feeling for not having to hit the joystick fire button each time the BBS phone line rang.. M.A.C.E. AMISXM10 ------------------- Ring Detector DOC The following text describes how to build a 'Ring Detector' for the Atari 835 or 1030 modem. Failure to build or install correctly can result in damage to your computer. The joystick lines must never come in contact with the phone line!! BUILD AND USE THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK!! We DID NOT design this device and are in no way responsible for it. CAUTION! CAUTION! CAUTION! CAUTION! This device is NOT FCC APPROVED! Use at YOUR own risk!! There are only four parts required to build a ring-detector: 1) A phone wire to connect to your phone line. Plug-in type is best. 2) A joystick replacement cable. Gemini VG150 or equivalent. 3) A 125 Volt AC relay. Radio Shack # 275-217B or equivalent. 4) A 20 MF or greater capacitor of at least 70 volts. 5) Optional plastic box. Do NOT use metal. This is an electrical diagram of the ring-detector. N.C. O Green \ Orange ------------ 4 O------------6 7 > Joystick 2 > N.O. 6 O------------8 Phone Relay> Black Line Coil> 8 > |+ = 20MF | ------------ Red 1) Connect the Green phone wire to pin 7 of the relay coil. 2) Connect the + end of the 20MF Capacitor to pin 8 of the relay coil. 3) Connect the Red phone wire to the - end of the Capacitor. 4) Connect the unit to the phone line and test to see that it responds. 5) REMOVE IT FROM THE PHONE LINE!! 6) Connect the Orange Joystick wire to the Common Relay Contact pin 4 7) Connect the Black Joystick wire to the N.O. Relay Contact pin 6. 8 With a meter or circuit tester, check that no connection between the phone wires and the joystick wires. Cross check all four wires 9) Package up, to protect the unit and install into Joystick port 2. 10) Plug the unit into the phone jack. You may need a Y-Connector You are now ready to boot up your BBS program. When the phone rings the ring detector will force the program to answer the phone. NOTE: The RING DETECTOR must be plugged into joystick port 2 of your computer for this program to work on the 835 or 1030 modem. If you don't feel you can build this unit your self you can get a ring detector built and ready to go from, Sector One Computers 3685 15 Mile Road Sterling Heights, MI 48310 (313)-978-2208
  20. Working on collecting and archiving the collection of Atascii break cartoons on the web and posting on southern amis bbs. So far I have located about 10. Mouse BBS has 20 or so.. I know the number is much greater.. Are these gone with the times or hiding somewhere and with a collective effort located and preserved?
