Re: Hosting and accessing TWGS through Mystic BBS
However I finally got it working. For anyone running Mystic BBS and Tradewars Game Server, I have the solution to make it work through an RLogin.
By default, Mystic does not include RLogin as a feature, but it is something that g00r00 is going to add.
In the interim you will need to download a program called TelnetDoor from here (https://www.randm.ca/bbs/telnetdoor/
This application will literally pass your user from the door menu to an RLogin connection.
Extract it to a folder within your Mystic folder. I put mine in C:\mystic\doors\tnetdoor
Now create a batch file in the mystic\doors folder, call it whatever you like. Copy and paste this into it and save:
telnetdoor.exe -R -Dc:\mystic\temp%1\door32.sys -Sbbs.url.com -Pxxxx
Change the bbs.url.com to your own DNS, and P=Port number that your Tradewars game server is running on.
In Mystic, add an entry into the door menu.
For command, select (D3) Exec Door (door32.sys)
Data: C:\mystic\doors\tradewar.bat %3 %U
While I cannot guarantee what worked for me will work for everyone else, but this allowed my players to be able to access their accounts within the game server like they did in SBBS.
You're welcome to see it in action and join in on our game at bbs.r2lotw.com. We will be initiating a second local game with at least 4k sectors to explore. So come early and get ready to have some fun!www.r2lotw.com
