• I must hate visitors

    From Alonzo@VERT/UNMARKED to All on Tue Dec 12 18:16:44 2023
    I just now set up a Synchronet BBS and in my haste to get things rolling, I did not create a Guest account. Guess what? Now I want one. Can someone please
    tell me how I can either create a new Guest account or restore the original Guest account?

    Also... can you recommend some good games I can install (easily)?
    I am not stranger to bulletin boards but this one has WAY too many settings.

    Thanks!

    Maybe start with the auto install ones in JS? If you login in as SysOp, go to operator in external programs, there should be an option it Auto-install.

    When logging on as the sysop, you should be prompted about whether you want to create the guest account. If not, it sounds like there's a 'makeguest' module you can run later.

    There's some good information on the Synchronet wiki. This is a page that mentions how to create the guest account:

    There's a page on the wiki about how to install doors, and there are also some pages on how to install some specific/popular door games:

    'jsexec makeguest' from a command prompt or the sysop command ;exec ?makeguest while logged into the terminal server as a sysop.

    I am not stranger to bulletin boards but this one has WAY too many settings.

    The source (at least for linux) comes with several games that are pretty
    easy to install, including lord, lord 2, the Beast Domain, and a few casino games.

    I was also able to get Galactic Dynasty, For Honour, and Magislots installed without issue a while back, but now am having some issue with other doors from the same author -- pretty sure it is user error but I have not had time to
    dive into the issue.

    Just reinstall and start from the beginning.

    yeah, that's bad advice. you never setup synchronet anyways, don't know
    why you are giving advice.
