    Lightbulb Ubuntu BBS for trade wars

    This is probably the wrong section but it seems the most appropriate... Anyways.

    I am installing Synchronet on my Ubuntu 11.04 VPS to play Trade Wars and maybe a few other BBS games. Anyone interested, post here.

    Yes we are interested. We were looking a while back to have somebody run one for us.

    Scott was looking into it but I'm not sure where he got to.

    Scott contacted me about it last night. I have been having problems setting up Synchronet (and a few other), it would be easier if I had a Windows server lol.

    Update; I think I've worked out my problems with running Synchronet on my Linux VPS. But Door games may be a problem, since the only option I've found for running DOS door games (without having to use a GUI and dosbox, which will take up a lot of RAM) is using dosemu, which I cannot get running for some reason.

    So, I was way too busy to setup a new server. But I remembered I had some some webhosting just sitting around not being used, so I have just installed BlackNova Traders, if anyone is interested!
