Are you trying to set up a game server to host games? Or are you trying to figure out
how to jump in and play?

You mention a BBS?

Help us help you man!

it runs in telnet. so you have to either activate that in the control panel or use a helper like zoc, attac, or swath for the window. then it runs in a box on your screen. if you are just trying to come back, be aware that people run scripts to move and attack and trade really fast now- getting into a friendly building game and asking around here for help can get you up to speed quickly, plus land you fun scripts to use. check out navhaz junction and outpost-4 for a lot of good tutorials and script downloads...

some of us play there, but your issue will eventually be that you cant really run scripts from the java... on many games this will put you at an insurmountable disadvantage. it takes quite a bit more effort to get everything set up to run straight telnet from your home pc nowadays... and thats required for the helpers and macro/script programs. however, setting this up lets you play on just about any public server and with a wide array of 'toys' to play with. PM me and i can try to walk you through a setup for telnet and twxproxy...

Once these guys help you to get a telnet program to connect to a game be certain to try a few out to see what type game works best for you.

For newly returning players please read this document:
http://www.navhaz.com/dny_tw_tutorial.txt

You may want to start in a game that's set-up for builders before you try a more aggressive game.
This site will help you to choose a game to play:
http://www.thestardock.com/twgssearch/index.php

From the game menu type S to see that game's settings and * to see additional settings.
If you have any more questons, please come back and ask. There are lots of helpful people here.
