  • There are now 4 different sprite-cursors to choose from, named 'SPRITE_x', where x is a number between 1 to 4
  • The 'CONFIGURE'-file has been cleaned up

  • The Call-back validation support has been removed
  • The Phone# completition has been made optional
  • Carrier-Drop Checking and One Post/Call Checking has been added as options
  • The Multi-Colour BBS-feature has been removed, at least temporarily (The ML-code that supports it is still left in the text-parser, though)
  • The Main-menu now uses Quick-Keys (One keypress for each option, and no need to press [RETURN])
  • A Toplist-viewer has been added
  • Some of the commands have been moved from the Main-menu or the Mail-menu to a special User-Parameter menu
  • '<' can now be used to go to the previous Sub
  • '+' and '-' can now be used to navigate in both the U/D's and the Subs
  • It is now possible to move directly from the Subs to the U/D's by writing '^' or 'UD' and to move directly from the U/D's to the Subs by writing '^' or 'SB'
  • A severe bug, which could corrupt the Protocols when sending a mail, has been fixed
  • Support for the SuperCPU has been added
  • Support for Auto-Posting Uploads has been added
  • There is now support for Auto-Logoff when Up- or Downloads have been completed
  • A Chat-request now offers the user to leave feedback if the Sysop is out

  • All files that are new to the user are now marked with a "v"-sign
  • The Join/Unjoin Sub feature has been removed
  • Pressing [RETURN] at Wait-screen will now take you remote-mode instead of log you onto the BBS
  • The "Show Disk-Status" option can now be toggled from the Wait-screen
  • The BBS now performs Garbage-collection every time it returns to the Wait-screen
  • Support for customised, two lines high, delimiter-lines has been added
  • Some of the initialisation has been moved from the BASIC to the ML to make start up quicker
  • The Macros have been renamed to Oneliners (as this is what they really are) and as a consequence, the files 'MACROS' and 'MLOG' have been renamed into respectively 'ONELINERS' and 'OLOG'
  • The "Insert System-disk" request has now been removed
  • All menus are now affected by the "Separate ASCII-screens"-option
  • An option has been added to turn all logging off, for people with EXTREME problems with disk-space. It is NOT recommended to use this feature, as you lose the opportunity of backtracking errors
  • Support for Military (24-Hour) time format has been added; now you can choose between the two in the 'C/BOOT'-file
  • A bug, which could cause the BBS to hang if no modem was connected, was fixed
  • The subs now supports 'Rx' with more than 4 digits.


  • The file-loader has been fixed to report errors when loading, and won't continue loading the next file before the one before is loaded in due order without bugs
  • 'C/BOOT' now gathers all data about the version#'s for the different System-files and writes them to the file 'VDATA', to simplify updates and bug tracking. Two lists are created; one for the Boot-disk and one for the System-disk. If those two are the same, the same files will be listed twice... (Sorry about that one, but I didn't bother to do a routine that checked such things out). This list is updated each time you reboot your BBS, regardless of if you have made any upgrades or not, to make sure no files are missed out. This file can also be useful to locate missing, old or misplaced files
  • The time-calculation bug has been fixed and the routine been heavily optimised
  • Support for entering time in Military (24-Hour) Format has been added for us Europeans who can not understand what's so funny about the 12 Hour AM/PM time-format
  • Before loading the main-BBS, the Boot-file now asks you to insert your System-disk
  • All configuration was moved to the separate program 'C/CONFIGURE'.
  • The Access-Group editor and the Prompt editor has both been removed - they were just a waste of space, as they were both totally worthless
  • The files 'ASCII_TAB' and 'P/PUNTER' are no longer loaded on boot-up, thus you need not have these files on your Boot-disk


  • All configuration was moved here from 'C/BOOT'
  • Config options for the new features that C*Base v3.3 adds were added, and the options for the removed features were removed
  • The # of variable screens has been limited to 8 instead of 9, to simplify a transition to an ML-routine


  • Converters for old format v3.x 'USERLOG' and 'STATS'-files have been added
  • Support for the new features in C*Base v3.3 has been added
  • Some unnecessary code has been removed
  • The manoeuvring in the menus has been simplified


  • A completely new Toplister-engine to C*Base
  • The BBS puts the modem on hook while updating the Toplister
  • Support for SuperCPU & 2MHz mode when called automatically
  • VERY fast sorting (Even though it's only a modified O(n2)-routine)
  • Support for approximately 600 users (If that isn't enough for you, I PROMISE to write a special routine to fix that)


  • The X-Modem1K protocol has been bug-fixed
  • All the protocols have been rewritten to communicate with the main-program via an interface page rather than via hard poking directly into the protocols
  • All protocols are now called from a jump-table in the beginning of the protocol rather than with jumps into the main-code

Kernel Files

  • The Dongle-protection has now been removed from the code
  • All the ML-files have been resourced into Assembler and rewritten HEAVILY to gain maximum speed
  • The MCI Header-command has been modified and enhanced with 2 new commands which modify the looks of the header-lines

  • The bug in the Message-Maker when undeleting, which caused one char from the old text to remain, has now been fixed
  • The Message-Maker has been made faster
