    well, you would have to insert the ANSI into your BAJA mod I'm assuming ... or have your BAJA mod call the .ans file from the script.

    Huh? You don't convert ansi to bin. ANSI is a Menu File, and BIN
    files are executable BAJA modules. What matrix module is it?

    You must be confused on something here?? Refer to the Customization chapter of the sysops docs.

    ace_mtrx.zip file I got off of your board.. I followed the instructions but it produces a crap ass matrix screen.. I would like to be able to insert my ansi graphics in the BIN file...

    Secondly, For some reason I can't my File Bases to see the "FILE_ID.DIZ" file and Im stuck having to manually editing the descriptions.. is there an easier way of having these descriptions validated?

    Unless you have a .SRC file as well as a .BIN file, you are pretty much S.O.L. .BIN files are compiled BINaries created from .SRC files; it is virtually impossible to make significant changes to a .BIN file directly.

    Also, assuming you have the .SRC available for modification, it is very unlikely that it will simply contain raw ANSI. What you see when you run your average "Matrix" (ugh!) is usually constructed out of a number of complicated PRINT statements.

    So whether you have the .SRC or not, you are going to have to learn to program in Baja, although having the .SRC to start with would be very helpful!

    Heh.. I wrote that module in like 1993 or so. :-) You are still not understanding that you do not "Insert my ANSI into a BIN file". You don't insert anything in a BIN file. It's precompiled and you can't do anythign with it except run it.

    I'm not sure what version of my module you are running, but the later versions supported using any ANSI file as a matrix screen. How to do this is fully documented in the docs included with the module. If you wish, give me your email address and I will send you the latest (freeware) version of the mod.

    Secondly, For some reason I can't my File Bases to see the "FILE_ID.DIZ" fil and Im stuck having to manually editing the descriptions.. is there an easie way of having these descriptions validated?

    Synchronet comes pre-configured to import DIZ's automatically. But, you must copy PKZIP.EXE and PKUNZIP.EXE into your SBBS\EXEC directory, or they must be in your path. Putting them in SBBS\EXEC is recommended.

    Also, refer to the ADDFILES section of the sysop documentation if you've got a lot of files ot upload.

    Actually, he can use any ANSI with my module, it can be configured to use any screen as the matrix screen. It even supports random matrix screens :-)

    not true -- i've looked at a couple of the readily available matrix logons and a few have raw ansi embedded in them. A couple of the authors did it this way to make it more difficult to tear their ugly (prety in their eyes i'm sure) ansi out.

    besides, I thought that Sync came with a Login matrix you could enable

    It does. It's called MATRIX.SRC/BIN and it's in your EXEC directory.

    Well if someone could help me install the matrix on irc.. I would very much appreciate the help!

    Actually you can write your own logon matrix using baja. I've changed most of the SRC files around. Stuff like Animated Menus and animated logons.

    yeah, i know... i've quite a bit of mucking around myself.

    but, it does come with a logon matrix (stock).
