    I just leverage existing doors... right now I'm using S.T.U.P.I.D (Simply The Ultimate Planets Interface Door) version 1.71 (registered) though I'm switching to version 1.90 as soon as the last game running on 1.71 finishes. That means users must upload/download via zmodem, but I kind of like it that way ;)

    Unfortunately there's a couple very severe flaws with how STUPID automates hosting, especially if you want to use a computer player other than the included CPlayer. I prefer using Dominate for server-side computer players, and SpaceLord is even better (in terms of lack of computer "cheats"), but the way the door creates batch files for running hosts is problematic (without going into the boring details).

    I've automated it as much as possible using my own batch files and timed events, but when new games are created there is still the initial setup work involved. Luckily (or not so lucky for us vga planets fans) the community is not huge at the moment (on the BBS scene at least... planetscentral.com does a great job at keeping games going but alas they only run pHost) so it's not that much work setting up new games when they pop up.

    That being said, I'd love to have a look at your mod for synchronet, mind linking me the details?

    i dont think i have it anymore and it's not really tested. i couldnt get anybody to play vgaplanets, even on a gaming bbs when it was real real popular.

    all it did was allow the guys to upload their packets.
    i dont recommend it if you can find it.
