Trying to get a feel for what software users are using to access BBS's. If you are accessing BBS's, are you using software that supports ANSI or are you using non-ANSI software?

This is a great question.  On the TI, (I do not have an F18a (yet..) for 80 column support), I use JediMatt's TIPI Telnet which supports ANSI in 64 column mode on real iron.  Since it does not support file transfers, I use Jeff Brown's TERM80 on the TI (which also supports ANSI), when I want to transfer files.  I would use the TI more if I had an F18a (Mk I or Mk II).  Until then, I end up using SyncTERM (for the ANSI music support) and Netrunner.  I would love to see a full featured TIPI/serial ANSI terminal, supporting file transfer protocols and speech support.  I appreciate all the work you, [email protected] and others have done to make the TI-99/4a able to access and utilize BBSs!

 

Thank you!

does timxt count as mass transfer? or a separate item?

I am not familiar with TIMXT.  If it is a modified version of MXT and supports ANSI, then select MXT from the poll.

Thanks for the feedback.  Keep it coming.  I am thinking about about whether to add any ANSI code into the BBS program (AfterHours) I am working on.

 

Right now, the program has been up and running for 24 hours without crashing and has been picking up dropped calls, etc.

 

I am going to post in the AfterHours topic access information.

TIMXT followed from my work on SuperMassTransfer (80 columns) which was derived from Stu's Mass Transfer source code.  Seems ok to me to use MXT in this poll.

Unfortunately, I can't update the poll to include MXT.  Perhaps an admin can???
