BBS Door Game Server
Do you remember calling Bulleting Board Systems (BBS for short) back in the day?
The internet slowly ate away at the BBS userbase, with Email/Usenet/Web based bulletin
boards replacing the need for message areas and message networks like Fidonet, and
FTP servers replacing the need for file areas, it's fair to say BBSing isn't what
it used to be.
What GameSrv Does
But not everything about BBSing has been replaced with an internet equivalent. The
old text-based door games are still popular, even attracting the attention of the
younger generation, who have grown up on action packed FPS games like Doom, Quake
and Half-Life. This is why GameSrv was born, to give diehard SysOps a simple yet
powerful way to host door games for generations to come!
What GameSrv Doesn't Do
But that's ALL that GameSrv does. If you're an even more diehard SysOp who wants
to rejoin Fidonet or have a 100gig file area, GameSrv is probably not for you. GameSrv
might allow you to run your favourite old DOS based BBS package with the help of
the bundled NetFoss or mSyncFos FOSSIL drivers, but you're probably better off with
something a little more modern. So I'd highly recommend either Synchronet or EleBBS,
both of which have embraced the internet rather than fight it, which has resulted
in two very feature-full BBS packages.
