  • Time Portal BBS

    From Xucaen@VERT/TIMEPORT to All on Mon Dec 14 19:53:54 2015
    My second BBS since 1996. I am currently working on a new door game I call Labyrinth. It is a text based maze adventure. I would love to have some folks try it out and maybe make suggestions. There are currently 7 levels of mazes, player starts on the first level, the exit is on the seventh level. Player state is saved when you exit.

    Come on by and say 'hi'. timeport.synchro.net:2112

    I don't know what editor you are using, but it really isn't working so good. It doesn't wordwrap. It just breaks a word in half when it meets the 80 character mark. It feels like every paragraph is a single line. The quoting
    I did here doesn't do it justice because my quoting method actually does do word wrap.

    I was using ecWebv3 and Firefox 42.0 under Windows 7. I wonder if the carriage returns and line feeds got mangled somehow, not sure. Now I am logged into the actual BBS using SlyEdit 1.48. Let me know if this is any better. Thanks for the heads up.

    This is much better. I don't think that web forms will keep the proper word wrap, which explains what I was seeing. Unless you have a way to set the column width in your web app.

    No choice. Chrome is too unstable for me.
