Amiga Retro Brisbane BBS (#ARBBS) is Operational!

Quote from: Gazmaniac
Mark Casteleijn has worked his magic again and we now have a local BBS!  It's accessible from any system using Telnet, and has successfully been accessed by at least two Amigas and a c64!
 
We need a logo for this fantastic facility, so we're running an ANSI art competition.  Please upload your entries to the Uploads section of the BBS.
Please log on, even if you do so from your modern machine.

Point your telnet client to www.amigaretro.com port 23.  DCTelnet works well on Amiga, ccgms21 on the 64, Windows users can use Netrunner, and Mac and Linux users have a built in telnet Client.

This is awesome. I have been using it since it was available using my Amiga 3000 and DCTelnet. It works great and I am checking in most days so please say hi!

Look forward to seeing some of my favourite BBS door games soon!

Thanks so much for your work in making this BBS happen.

Many thanks Epsilon!

Internal functionality is basically done, Just a few file area and message area configurations to go! (Still some menu items to fix / enable /disable) but then I will be getting stuck into those doors!

More "Classic" "BBS Door" Games are going online as quickly as I can!

Come and join in the Fun the Classic "Galactic Warzone" - Can you defeat the Cabal?

For those too young to remember the "old" BBS days, a Door Game is an online game launched from a shell (DoorWay) in the BBS! Some are Multi-Node and most are "turn" based games.   

Hope to see you on the BBS soon!

The BBS has been relocated to its new server, this however does mean that the "door" games are no longer functional.

They were custom built for the old server so it may take me some time to get them working again on the new.

I will first attempt to setup the "portal" games as they are external.

Thank you.
