• Dosemu door help?

    From tmccaffe@VERT to All on Mon Feb 13 11:32:38 2023
    I am trying to add a dos door and have the following issues:

    says

    cannot setup graphics mode under terminal.

    Any ideas? Does synchronet support dos graphics?

    Also I noticed I have no D: NODEDIR

    synchronet is installed under dir /gbbs/sbbs

    this is my dosemu.conf

    _cpu = "80486"
    $_cpu_emu = "emulator"
    $_floppy_a = ""
    $_cdrom = ""
    $_xms = (8192)

    If the DOS door program is trying to enter a graphics mode on the BBS machine, I'm not sure that will work. What door is it?

    I have Darkness set up on my BBS as well, and it seems to be failing to run for me as well. I'll need to look into that.

    Are you using traditional dosemu or dosemu2? I have dosemu2 with no problems running darkness.

    In my /etc/dosemu/dosemu.conf I have the following:

    $_fixed_term_size = "80x25"

    This will fix the "Dos needs 25 lines..." error you're seeing. What's probably happening is dosemu is displaying thta line of text and waiting for someone to press enter, but it's not waiting on the virtual comport, so the keypresses from the user session aren't making it through.

    That fixed the lines issue but now it goes to the screen with a cursor than back to game menu so something is wrong. Where do I look to troubleshoot? Using Linux by the way.

    weird fixed that but says still not found. Maybe I have it setup wrong in SCFG? How is this supposed to be setup? Using the 16 bit executable.

    D:/GBBS/SBBS/NODE1/DOOR.SYS and it's in that directory so not sure whats up here

    Normally (and by default, I think), your dosemu setup with Synchronet should be set up such that drive D: is whatever node directory the user is on (so D: would be your sbbs/node1), so your door configuration would just need to specify D:\DOOR.SYS as the drop file (or be pointed to D:\DOOR.SYS by the %F command-line specifier, or perhaps be pointed to D:\ with the %n command-line spedifier - and note the 'n' there is lower-case, as I'm pretty sure %N (capital N) is the node number).

    No, %n is the specifier for the node *directory*. See http://wiki.synchro.net/config:cmdline for details.

    got it, I added the following to darkness config:

    D:\gbbs\sbbs\node#\door.sys
    in scfg I added dark16.exe %f

    I get the following in external.bat

    SET STARTDIR=darkness
    @lredir -f E: \gbbs\sbbs\xtrn\dosgames >NUL
    @lredir -f F: \gbbs\sbbs\ctrl >NUL

    @lredir -f H: \gbbs\sbbs\exec >NUL
    @lredir -f D: \gbbs\sbbs\node1 >NUL

    :EXEC
    dark16.exe D:\DOOR.SYS

    I am guessing dosemu2 not giving full path or am I missing something?
    the game complains cant find door.sys

    %n is the node directory. I may have been incorrect previously, as %# is the node number.
    The command-line specifiers that Synchronet supports are listed here: http://wiki.synchro.net/config:cmdline

    You should look at the documentation for the door you're setting up to be sure you use the correct command line for it. You might not be able to just give it the node number like that - it might need a command-line specifier to tell it the next thing is the node number, etc..

    I didn't. But I've been able to get Darkness to run.
    There's a batch file, START.BAT, and in there, I saw that it has this command:

    DARKNESS.EXE /N%1

    So it looks like you can pass the command-line argument /N with the node number. In SCFG, I now have it set to run DARKNESS.EXE /N%# and it's working. Just be sure to run DARKCFG and configure the door with the drop file type and the location of the drop file. The location of the drop file should always be D:\ for all nodes when using dosemu. Currently I have it set to use DOOR.SYS for the drop file type.

    I don't remember where I downloaded Darkness. But my zip file doesn't have start.bat either. start.bat is generated the first time you run darkcfg. It sounds like you haven't run darkcfg?

    I did the following:
    command line DARK16.EXE /N%#

    I don't have a DARK16.EXE.. My archive only had a DARKNESS.EXE and dark32.exe. DARKNESS.EXE is the 16-bit DOS version, and dark32.exe is the 32-bit Windows version. Are you sure you have a DARK16.EXE?

    in externalbat file in that node which is 3 has:
    :EXEC
    DARK16.EXE /N3

    That is for sure wrong isn't suposed to be D:/NODE3/DOOR.SYS ?

    That command line looks fine. The command-line /N3 only specifies that it's running for node 3. From that, it seems the door knows which of its node-specific configuration files to read (in this case, it would read NODE.3), and that file specifies where the drop file is located.

    After you run DARKCFG.EXE, you may notice it creates those NODE.# files after you configure the settings for each node (which includes the location of the drop file).

    I haven't tried that, as I haven't seen anything to suggest the exe would take a parameter specifying the full path & filename of the dropfile. From the batch file, the only example I've seen is one taking /N with the node number.

    And no, there are no docs in the archive, aside from a whatsnew.txt
    (at least in the zip file I have).

    Yeah, I was using an earlier version than he was, and mine didn't have that .DOC file. I found the newer version and I have that now.

    docs. no start.bat

    The archive I had was different (it wasn't named Drk100b2.zip), and the one I had didn't have a darkness.doc. And start.bast was generated after you ran the configuration program.

    tm> I see one issue and not sure where to fix this:

    tm> it can't find DOOR.SYS the directory slashing is wrong.

    tm> It has D:/gbbs/sbbs/node1\DOOR.SYS not found in log

    Normally (and by default, I think), your dosemu setup with Synchronet should be set up such that drive D: is whatever node directory the user is on (so D: would be your sbbs/node1), so your door configuration would just need to specify D:\DOOR.SYS as the drop file (or be pointed to D:\DOOR.SYS by the %F command-line specifier, or perhaps be pointed to D:\ with the %n command-line spedifier - and note the 'n' there is lower-case, as I'm pretty sure %N (capital N) is the node number).


    for dosemu2 i had to add -d $NODEDIR -d $XTRNDIR to exec/dosemu.ini to
    get mapped these drives

    Interesting where does that command go in the cmd=?

    I have this:
    cmd=/usr/bin/env $TERM HOME=$CTRLDIR QUIET=1 DOSDRIVE_D=$NODEDIR NODEDIR=$NODEDIR $DOSEMUBIN -I"video { none }" $VIRTUALCONF -f$DOSEMUCONF -E$EXTBAT -o$NODEDIRdosemu_boot.log $EXTLOG

    I think those can go anywhere in the dosemu commandline. I put the -d specifications right after $DOSEMUBIN (so they're basically the first arguments).

    The Synchronet wiki has a page for dosemu2:
