Using NETFOSS with R&M's GameSrv v310.19b2

Installing GameSrv

Create a directory somewhere, such as c:\gamesrv. Unzip the GameSrv 3.10.19b2 files into this directory. If you are using PKZip then be sure to have it recreate the directory structure. You can also place a shortcut to GameSrv.EXE in your startup folder, so that windows automatically runs it at startup. GameSrv no longer includes NetFoss, as it now comes with another FOSSIL driver (which is less compatible and slower then NetFoss).


Installing NETFOSS

Create a directory to unzip the NETFOSS files into. In our example we will use the directory: c:\netfoss. Next edit the NF.BAT file, and change all the paths to point to the directory it was unziped to. You will also need to add a " %1" to the end of the netfoss.com line, so that it will run not require a DOOR32.SYS drop file (non-door32.sys mode). The batch file should now look like:

      c:\netfoss\netfoss.com %1
      if errorlevel 1 goto end
      c:\netfoss\netcom.exe %1 %2 %3 %4 %5 %6 %7 %8 %9 
      c:\netfoss\netfoss.com /u

Configuring GameSrv v3.10.b19 to use NETFOSS

This beta version of gamesrv does not have a working configuration GUI, so you will need to edit GAMES.INI by hand.


Command=c:\bbs\netfoss\nf.bat /N*N C:\DOORS\MOMUD\GOMUD.BAT *N
Description=MO's MUD


This example uses the hotkey of 'X' to run the door. (So the user must press X to select this door).
The command line needs to have the /N*N at the beginning, so that netfoss and netcom will know
which node number to use (Because GameSrv does not create a door32.sys).
The DropFile must be '0' or GameSrv will attempt to use its included FOSSIL driver instead.
