    Hello
    I am new to this synchronet bbs. I am trying to run some older door games, I can not seem to get any to work. All the pre installed games are fine.
    Is it that just the old 16 bit dos games will not run on 32 bit, even through syncronet bbs?
    I have patched the exe files with tppatch.
    the bbs system says I'm running the game but nothing happens, on either end. I.E. running in local mode.
    Just asking.
    Thanks

    Well i did figure some things out.
    1) tppatch did not patch the exe. files like I thought, I thought the patch exe auto found and patched the files, nope have to do each one in cmd prompt. duh!
    2) the syncterm I am using I had for some reason redue the terminal, for ASCII. But I do thank you for your reply.
    I even got SRE to run on synchronet BBS.
    So after a lot of head pounding, I'm taking a break.

    Yeah, typically it's SBBSEXEC.DLL that you'd have to copy to c:\windodows\system32, not a fossil driver. I typically use the Synchronet internal fossil driver and have never had to copy anything fossil-related out of the Synchronet directory.

    SBBSEXEC.DLL is the 32-bit portion of the Synchronet Virtual UART/FOSSIL driver. And it's automatically copied to the Windows system32 director upon install (and has been very *many* years/versions of Synchronet).

    I typically use the Synchronet
    internal fossil driver and have never had to copy anything fossil-related out of the Synchronet directory.

    Yup, that installer does it for you. :-)

    Probably. <shrug> That addition was made to the Windows installer around the time of Windows Vista, circa 2007.

    Ah. I only ever ran the installer once when I first installed Synchronet in 2007. Over the years, I'd moved my BBS to different PCs (physical and virtual) several times, so I'd manually copy that DLL (I didn't think there would be a need to run the installer again).

    And that's correct, if you manually install or copy sbbs to a new Windows computer, you *may* have to copy the sbbsexec.dll to the Windows/System32 directory (depending on the version of Windows NTVDM).

    http://wiki.synchro.net/faq:win?s[]=dll

    The very first question, for a reason.

    "Did you copy SBBSEXEC.DLL to SYSTEM32?" would be my first suggestion too.

    Do you even like BBSes? You seem to spend most of your time upset lol.
