91Oct29 From Shane Johnson @ Creative Concepts, Seatac Ogre... You need to worry about formatting. GremCit 1.30 source was never made 100% public. I obtained rights to it and created M.O.D.E. BBS which ran STABLEish for about a year and a half on the Cauldron. I'm definate that that code has passed into oblivion. However, sections of 1.30 code are in GremCit 3.20a code. Nice touches like message base/logfile/roomfile/etc Resizing, Faster execution, and others are partially attributed to 1.30 source. GremCit 3.20a is a compilation of all that's deemed BEST in Citadel programming by both users and sysops. It pulls together many Ideas. 91Oct30 From Shane Johnson @ Creative Concepts, Seatac It was to be: Modem Oriented Download Environment... AND a pun on DOS's MODE command... There were several names of the EXE's... CTDL, MODE, and BBS. It was going to be part of a chain of files... Since Cit already had file transfer in a way that users wanted... It was going to stay easy. The message base, rooms, halls, floors (Yes both halls and floors) were all a part of a larger design program to be implemented later, however for functionallity, the GremCit message base was kept... And it was 1.30's message base. The console commands were implemented with ALT menus... Aide was made to work like Sysop, all Functions were reached thru SYSOP menus (No having to load up the damned "f" menu from sysop) and there was Debug code added to watch interupts, HASH checking, and preliminary networking was started (granted, the cron was the easier part...) Applications were a breez since I already had 200K free... (1 meg Message Base) All in all, the project wasn't too bad. I gave it up due to it being too time consuming, Userlog bugs became more apparent, and a Goto bug was fixed. I tried to maintain compatability to DragCit's in one way or another... But that was more hassle than it was worth (Politicly).
