Re: MidiLink 2.0 looking for testers. (no MIDI devices required)

I'm not sure if I understand 100%. I was aware of people running multi-node BBS on Amiga and using DOS multitaskers such as DesqView. Given MiSTer cores only have access to a single COM port, I think that won't work. Are you talking about running multiple MiSTer's ? Yes, Deskview was one of the big...

Re: MidiLink 2.0 looking for testers. (no MIDI devices required)

Very strange. I have no idea about that. Vision-X seems to work fine at 57600... I ran Vision-X for a few years from 1989 to 1991 I believe. I had a lot fun with it. Are you planning on putting up a Vision-X BBS on the Mister? there were a few of us that ran multi-node, of course to do that back th...

Re: MidiLink 2.0 looking for testers. (no MIDI devices required)

Since 38400 is the default for ao486 core and midilink, does midilink for ao486 send a 38400 Connect result code of "28". Or is it just sending Connect of '1' result code? The default (unless you specify differently in the INI via TCP_BAUD=) for TCP mode is 115200 The result code sends &q...

Re: MidiLink 2.0 looking for testers. (no MIDI devices required)

so with the TCP_DTR=2 it will drop the carrier on the VisionX BBS. It just takes a few seconds. no big deal. Downloaded and updated the latest midilink. Seems the Vision-x requires the response codes to know when it connects, or it will just site there at locking port at 38400 bps.. turning off the...

Re: MidiLink 2.0 looking for testers. (no MIDI devices required)

So far I have not been able to get any of these Vision BBS programs to work for me. They just exit to DOS prompt after I make a remote connection... Hope that helps... Thanks for testing :) I have seen the BBS programs exit to dos, but it's usually because of an error like a file is not found and t...

Re: MidiLink 2.0 looking for testers. (no MIDI devices required)

Getting rid of the response codes is easy. I have not had much luck setting up Vision or Vision-x for testing the DTR hangup. For Vision-X tried "visx099r.zip" and I'm getting runtime errors. Does this program work with QEMM? For Vision I tried "v284betb.zip" and that one crashin...

This version of Midilink also works with LSD 1.35 BBS. I have pushed a new MidiLink where DTR drop causes the modem to hang up... I guess it may be a good idea to make that behavior optional via the "AT&D#" commands and MidiLink.INI. Thanks for testing! I redownloaded the upgrade scri...

I have made sure my ao486 core is set to 38400. I have had partial success with bbs software. It seems if the BBS software uses the escape codes to hangup "+++,ATH" there is no issue with it hanging up (Oblivian/2 tested), but other software that use code to drop the DTR like Vision, Visi...
