MBBSV10 and BBS console

Post by Cthulhuhoop »

Hi again.

How does one go about editing user accounts in the console when wgsappgo.exe is ran? It's the old DOS console, but I cannot use arrow keys or pgup/dn keys, they just insert gibberish characters on the Name field. There seems to be no way to change records or fields?

There was another thread here recently with a similar issue, there are a couple of ways but the easiest is probably to login to the BBS as a sysop and there will be a system menu.

Once there, an edit option is available and you can modify users through that.

Within the console you can use shift-tab and ctrl-tab to navigate. Use the number keypad for pgup/pgdn.

The problem is related to windows terminal but an exact reason has not been determined yet.
