• Rumors Mod..

    From Melkor@VERT to All on Tue Mar 29 21:51:00 2005
    I downloaded a Rumors mod that has the src file.. When I tried to
    compile I got an error.. Ive looked through the Baja Docs and cant
    seem to find what I need to fix it so I figured I would post it here..

    The error is Syntax Error (expecting variable name)
    c:\sbbs\exec\rumor.src 76 c:\sbbs\xtrn\rumors\rumor.1

    The full line that is getting the error is this..
    chkfile c:\sbbs\xtrn\rumors\rumor.1

    Can someone tell me what I need to do to fix this?

    ... Black holes are outa sight!

    Put quotes around the filename. Of course that should be a relative path (not "c:\sbbs\etc.."), but that's an unrelated problem.

    DM got me fixed on that one.. Unfortunatly had a problem with the exe
    file it uses for adding the rumors.. No source for that one..:)

    Found a differnt rumors baja mod and it works.. Only thing I dont like
    is it doesnt translate the @ codes.. They show up fine if you list
    rumors from the add rumors area but not when it displays the rumor for
    some reason.. No src file for hit just already compiled bins so Ill
    just make sure everyone knows that the @ codes dont work..:)
