• New multiuser game

    From Marisag@VERT/AMIGAC to All on Wed Nov 28 05:57:35 2018
    Updated release - I put out the single-player VMS-Empire, but here is a version of the multiuser version. Just add this to your Synchronet BBS https://sourceforge.net/projects/wolfpack-empire-bbs-door/ and you will connect to the official server. The server code is included in the archive so you can run your own, but setting it up is beyond what I can post about here. You can ask about it in the Gamenet BBS feed. If you need any help you can ask me as well...

    bin/empire: error while loading shared libraries: libreadline.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

    Figured this one out... my distro does not have libreadline6 package, but I was able to create the symlink to libreadline.so.5.2 to get past this.

    Now it asks me for a country name and when I type one in, it says "No Such Country" and exits.

    thanks!

    Hmm, guess you don't have the libreadline library installed:
    sudo apt-get install libreadline6 libreadline6-dev

    As I posted just now, you can use this to install the latest version:
    sudo apt-get install libreadline6 libreadline6-dev

    Now it asks me for a country name and when I type one in, it says "No Such Country" and exits.

    I'm working on a better way to tell you what countries you can use, but right now the country and passwords are set the same: like "1<cr>1<cr>" etc country and password set to the same number. I'm working on a script to display the latest number that can be used... Give me a few minutes ;)

    Assuming one is using Debian (or variant), yes... Doesn't work very
    well on Slackware, though. ;)

    True! If you know the command for slackware let me know and I will add it to the readme.md...

    Ubilinux, which sources from debian stable, apparently does not have 6 available yet. That command will result in a not-found message.

    1<cr>1<cr> works! Brings back memories of the "old days" when I had an
    account at the local university. It was not a VAX but something like it.
    You could telnet to MUDS, etc... it has a feel like that.

    Yes and once in you can change the countryname if you like :)

    Updated Wolfpack Empire to have a menu system and let you view which player numbers are still available for use. Upgrade your copy here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/wolfpack-empire-bbs-door/

    That works! :)

    Now, when I type "info introduction" followed by "info guide", the screen scrolls nonstop for a very long time. Is there a command that tells the
    game to pause after every 24 (or N) lines?

    Thanks!

    Is the source available? I can't seem to find it.. was thinking it might
    be useful if one wants to run it on another platform (like on a raspberry
