I need some advise here. After having my old BBS machine just completely die on me (Hard drive failed, then as soon as I got the Hard drive back from waranty and got the O/S reinstalled, the MotherBoard goes out!), so I had to move the BBS to a much faster machine than I'm used to using for the BBS. The BBS now shares my "everyday" machine, a 1.33GHz box. But when I grabbed TheDraw to start trying to re-create some ansi screens for the BBS, TheDraw poops out with a runtime error 103 every time I run it. I don't know whats up. What I do know is that I need an ANSI editor I can use, easily, that works at the speeds of my current machine.
If someone can recomend a good editor, and where to get it I'd be greatful. Please don't say from thebbs.org because I tried there, and every editor I tried to D/L came up "550 file not found".
P.S. It would be even better if I could convince some kind soul to do the screens for me. I'm a LOWSY ansi artist (couldn't draw a good picture to save my life), and so my screens are often not that great to look at.
Try getting PATCHCRT.EXE 43,226
Patch it. You might have to use it on other BBS Files as well.
written in C :> So patchcrt wouldn't do a lot of good. I had tried
Uh, no, TheDraw was originally written in QuickBASIC with certain
parts written in assembly. If you look in the TD archive, there's
files that start with QB4*... but the version I have says it was
written in TP6.
Error 103 in TP is "file not open". I'd gather that your assumption
is right and I'd say he follow your advice about the .TDF files. I
have TD 4.63 running on a 800Mhz machine nicely.
TP6? Weird because when I ran TPPATCH against it (it was ME asking for help, btw, he was just replying to an old message), it said the file
was not a tp6/tp7 program. Maybe it was a PKLite'ed exe. That would confuse tppatch.

Yeah... forgot to say he might want to pick up UNP (it's on my Maximus site at http://midnightshour.org/maximus/). Run UNP against it, then TPPATCH, however, like I said before, I have it running on a 850Mhz machine with no patching or fixing... so I don't think patching it
would help. ;)
