Can anyone point me to a good tutorial for setting this up? I would
love to use an offline reader for me BBS.. Just having trouble getting started.
Are you talking about getting golded setup?
There are advanced.cfg and simple.cfg examples. I suggest you rename simple.cfg
to golded.cfg and use that as a start. There are lots of examples in the advanced.cfg also that may be usefull to you but start with a simple.cfg.

Thank you for your reply.. Neither of those two files exist in the download I extracted. I got the latest version or atleast what it claims was the
latest. I find no .cfg files in the directory.
Besides using standard makefile procedure you may also use rpmbuild if you have
rpm-based Linux distribution. You'll need to install ncurses-devel and gcc-c++ (the names may differ in your distribution) and rename golded-plus directory to
golded+ before running rpmbuild.
You may also use cmake:
$ cd golded3
$ cp -a mygolded.__h mygolded.h
Edit mygolded.h as you like
$ cd ..
$ cmake -H. -Bbuild -DBUILD_SHARED_LIBS=OFF
$ cmake --build build
Make a distribution rpm, deb, tgz (optional)
$ cpack -G RPM --config build/CPackConfig.cmake
$ cpack -G DEB --config build/CPackConfig.cmake
$ cpack -G TGZ --config build/CPackConfig.cmake
or install the built files (optional)
# cmake --build build --target install

I finally got goldED up and startable. Do you know how I point it at mystic for the message bases and mailer etc? I want to use it on my laptop and
either point at mystic over my network or even the internet if thats even possible..

Good stuff.. :)
I don't think GoldED can read a mystic configuration to get the area config. You'll have to use area lines in your golded.cfg to get the area config.
You don't need all the areas in there, just the areas you want to read/write with golded.
