    From IB Joe@1:342/201 to All on Wed Jan 20 11:20:56 2021
    I moved from from 64Bit to 32Bit... and then moved the BBS from a regular machine to a VM... and from what I can tell things are working... EXCEPT my dovenet is not sending and receiving via QWK...

    ideas??

    I'm not 100% sure, but one thing that I forgot was to make sure zip.exe & unzip.exe were in place. I don't use ZIP on any of my FTNs so they were just working, but DOVE-Net wasn't working for some reason. Once I put zip.exe & unzip.exe in place it just started working.

    If you do have them in place, maybe make sure you don't have the 64bit windows .exe's now that you're running 32bit windows?

    Again, not 100% sure what the issue is, but worth looking at.

    You can get unzip.exe here: ftp://ftp.info-zip.org/sys%24sysdevice/infozip/pub/infozip/win32/unz600dn.zip

    And zip.exe here: ftp://ftp.info-zip.org/sys%24sysdevice/infozip/pub/infozip/win32/zip300xn.zip


    It looks like unzip.exe needs some .dll files (included in the archive) present in the same directory (or path) for it to function.

    Hi there... I did an upgrade from A46 to A48. From what I can tell I did what was asked of me... I have found something... When I'm in the ANSI editor and I have completed what I was doing.... and I go to press "Q" to quit it hangs up on me.
    I access the BBS setup as a menu option while I'm logged into the BBS

    Did you follow the A46 to A47 upgrade instructions first before you did the A47 to A48 instructions? Here are some specific instructions from the A46 to A47 upgrade:

    - If you use the default msg_editor.ini then you should replace it with the
    new one, otherwise refer to the What's New and the new default template
    for how to upgrade it to support Tagline changes. You can replace the
    default like this:

    install extract msg_editor.ini c:\mystic\themes\default\text

    - You will need to install the new Taglines template and default Taglines
    database:

    install extract taglines.ans c:\mystic\themes\default\text
    install extract taglines.ini c:\mystic\themes\default\text
    install extract taglines.dat c:\mystic\data

    It is also recommended that you go into System Configuration > New User
    Settings 2 and set "Taglines" to On so new users will default to having
    Taglines enabled if you wish them to (or set to Off if you want them off
    by default).

    I think there is a small issue you might want to review for the next release...

    Message areas are auto created in the \mystic\msgs\ directory. If I want to move the message files to a subdirectory like all the fido to \mystic\msgs\fido\ or \mystic\msgs\usenet\ ... Here is goes... if I move / target the message ares one at a time it'll move the files over ... If I try to move several over at a time with the Global command menu.... It seems to leave some files behind in the \mystic\msgs\ directory and they appear to be links to the files that were moved.

    It only does this when I try to bulk move the areas to a new subdirectory

    A couple of notes here because I think a lot of this might just be confusion on how things work:

    If you are seeing .lnk files those are not any type of links to files, those are part of the message base itself. Mystic message bases each have 7 data files with the following extensions: lnk, scn, xlr, jhr, jlr, jdt, and jdx. If you remove any of those you could cause some problems down the line.

    When using the global editor it does not rename or move files for you, you are only updating the path. If you want to try to relocate your files into those directories you have to manually copy them and then use the global editor to update the path. It will only update that value not move files.

    The reason the auto create in the import doesn't allow you to set the path for each network is because I have been over the years trying to get people to stop moving the message base data files all over the place because it makes it harder to do upgrades or to change the root Mystic install directory, or move between Windows and Linux (for examples). This is something I could add though but I haven't because my goal was to remove the configurable message path per message base.

    ... I'm not a complete idiot... Several parts are missing!

    I went back a few messages and found out that you had added the feature I've been bugging the piss out of you to add...

    I read the message and and paid more attention to the semantics ... and then said Oooooooooooh to myself and made the appropriate changes...

    So far so good with the auto-generation of Message Base names using Hex ...

    Ummmm, an issue has cropped up... The Menu option (MZ) Toggle new scan base is not working correctly.

    I can Add All or Remove All.... but I cannot toggle individual areas on or off...
    What has changed?? I have the recent 07-07-22 build and I have a larger message base now... hovers around 900++ message bases. More will be auto added at some point.

    That's the best I can do...

    Thanx

    I also noticed that -- however, as a workaround, it is possible to launch the (I)ndexed Message Reader from the message menu, switching to viewing all areas (Ctrl+V followed by A), and subscribing (Ctrl+S) and unsubscribing (Ctrl+U) to the ones you want.

    Temporarily disabling list compression (setting Configuration --> Message Base Settings --> List Compression: No) is another possible workaround until this gets solved.

    Yep :), keeping fingers crossed he'll be able to fix this, as the compressed lists are very nice!
