    From Marisag@GAMENET/AMIGAC to All on Sun Sep 2 20:50:16 2018
    Hello! I have just published a great classic game called Conquest that works as a Synchronet Door. It is like star trek and you can get it at: https://sourceforge.net/projects/conquest-bbs/ - If you need more information just ask!

    Marisa,
    Good afternoon. I just tried this one out. When I try to start it on my synchronet board, it gives an error message regarding my terminal needing to be 80x25.

    How did you get around that?

    thanks!

    Never mind, I figured a way around it. Instead of calling the program directly, I set it up in SCFG to call a script. In the script, I have the following two lines before the program call:

    unset DISPLAY
    stty cols 80 rows 25

    I am not sure I need that first line as I think it is the second one that fixes it.

    Figured I should share for anyone else who might run into that.

    My board is now hooked up! :D

    You need to have a 80x25 screen, i think that is set in whatever terminal emulator you are using. Perhaps turn off the status line?

    Great idea! :)
