After Hours BBS Program

Recommended Posts

@Beery,

 

The DSR issue for the three categories CAT13, CAT17 and CAT30 is still there.

The correct "total number of sectors" is now written in the file header, but the value of level 3 is still >3F and this causes the DSR error.

If I correct the level 3 value it is working:

The Gameshelf files that I have added are missing from your EXCEL sheet V3. I've pasted all of my changes into your FileCreator Version 3 file.

So you can make further changes with this file.
I changed the name to "FileCreator Version 3a" and included the BBS folder with all the library files.

@BeeryMiller,

 

the fileCreator version 4 is working without an error. The BBS Library files are all correct.

Only the file ALLFILES is not correct in the header. The value of level 3 is still >3F XX but this causes no errors.

You can use PC-TRANSFER when moving the file(s) to the TI and it will strip the 128 byte TIFILES header completely. The TIFILES header is only needed for the actual transfer between the PC and TI. It has no use in running the program on the TI..

In this case, the Excel spreadsheet makes over 200 files to handle 40, 64, and 80 column file area menu lists from the excel worksheet categorized filelists.  And, due to the size/quantity of the file lists, these files can only be managed on a TIPI running the AfterHours BBS program.  It would be really impractical to use PC-Transfer.

 

I would not even want to consider writing a 4A program to do all the spreadsheet does as there is sorting, grabbing of file sizes, and then the actual file writing process.

I think this fixed it.  The ALLFILES was in another macro.

This is a complete package with a 2 byte change to the source files to force the caller to select either 40, 64, or 80 column in the event their terminal sends some handshaking characters that blows past the selection.  Wolfgang, Greg had this issue since he was opening a connection over to his BBS.

It should have only sent the sequence once as I had to do that to deal with the Windows telnet client to put it in full duplex mode.

 

Ah, I know what it is now.  Your side sent some characters, and I looped it back to to resending that sequence as it is interpreting whatever codes it is sending, as individual characters.

 

I'll try and get a special release out for you this evening.

Greg,

 

Let me know if this fixes the multiple displays for the logging in triplicate prompt issue to the AfterHours version of your BBS from The Keep.

 

I also included the source file (MAINMENU) if you and/or Wolfgang update your files.

OK, at that point, there are no function keys active.  You, or a caller, needs to be logged in first before any function keys are active.

Oh, that's not a function key.  Just press L to Login.
