• Mystic BBS v1.12 Alpha 34 Released

    From g00r00@46:1/127 to All on Friday, June 23, 2017 13:12:35
    Mystic v1.12 A34 is released on www.mysticbbs.com

    [---WHATSNEW---]

    ! Fixed a bug which could cause a bad memory reference error in various
    places within Mystic.

    ! MUTIL PostTextFile wasn't taking into consideration the tear and origin
    lines when posting to a networked base while splitting large posts into
    multiple messages.

    + -VER commandline option in Mystic now prints the OS information too.

    + Increased buffer size when writing message text to JAM bases to 32k up
    from 8k

    + Mystic JAM will no longer strip spaces from the right side of MSGID tags
    in JAM to help work around a bug with GTPower.

    ! JAM Reply CRC and Msg To CRC were not always converted to lower cased
    before calculated. As per JAM specs all CRC calculated on string must be
    lower cased first. Packing message bases will regenerate these.

    + Reduced the time it takes to calculate Message Index Reader statistics
    by about 60%. Statistics may be calculated incorrectly unless all bases
    have been ran through the message base packer once to regenerate CRC values

    ! Fixed a bug which could cause some node processes to not detect when a
    user hangs up, possibly resulting in a ghosted user or even a stuck
    process.

    + Added a new internal protocol Xmodem/CRC. This protocol can be added by
    creating @XMODEMCRC in your Protocl Configuration and has not had much
    testing. **This is experimental; it may or may not stick around**

    + When shutting down MIS2, it no longer prompts to press a key when closing
    but instead displays a "shutdown complete" message and pauses 1.5 seconds

    + When editing a file entry in a file base there is now a (H)atch command
    which allows files to be hatched to all networked systems linked to that
    file base. Files to be hatched will have a "Hatch pending" text or a
    Hatched flag if the request was already processed.

    + Mystic now creates "filebone.out" semaphore file whenever a new file is
    requested to be hatched.

    + MUTIL TIC processor will now scan for requested hatches. Any files
    requested to be hatched will have an appropriate TIC file created
    in each linked node's filebox, and the file will be copied to each
    linked node's filebox.

    + In addition to existing /E to view networked message bases linked to a
    node, the echomail node editor now has a /F to view and edit networked
    file bases linked to a node.

    + Significant stability improvements to MIS2 along with some minor cosmetic
    changes.

    ! Changed PKT addressing on pass-through echomail so that BBBS systems with
    its security feature enabled will not reject packets.

    + In the echomail nodes editor, when enabling a FileBox with a blank filebox
    location, Mystic will now give the option to automatically generate and
    create a directory for that node. The format used by Mystic for the
    directory is as follows:

    Root filebox directory = <mystic root path> + "/filebox/"

    Each directory is created under the root location with the format of:

    <domain>_z<zone>n<net>n<node> (p<point> appended only for points)

    Example for 21:1/108@fsxnet when installed to c:\mystic would be:

    c:\mystic\filebox\fsxnet_z21n1n108\

    If you really dislike the name, I suppose you have the power to change it right? Although its such a well known name that it probably works in your favor to keep it the same.

    You could even just name it an ASCII symbol and refer to it as "The mailer formerly known as D'Bridge". I'm just teasing lol... I don't mind the name at all personally.

    If it helps at all, Mystic was supposed to be a temporary name. It was also originally "Mistic" named after the iced tea brand my brother always had in
    our house.

    I've got a bridge we can piss off. There's one over the DVP down town
    that I always wanted to piss off. Think we could get away with it if you
    were there? You were just doing research for D'Bridge. etc.

    Haha I don't know maybe I should expect on that kind of stuff somewhere.

    If you go and download 0.01 and run it in DOSEMU or something (it requires share so DOSBOX wont) you can see the "Mistic" logo on the WFC screen lol

    Bunch of fancy mystical hackery.

    I heard it was Renegade, or WWIV, or Tag, or something that was a hack of another. And then OBV/2 and Iniquity were hacks of that.
