CONFIGURATION
-------------

15PUZZLE.CFG:
------------
At the very least, the configuration file must contain the following
lines (minus the comments).

C:\PCB\PCBoard.sys <=- (Full pathname of your PCBOARD.SYS file)
The Pegasus BBS <=- (* Must not be changed in the demo version *)
Raymond <=- (* Must not be changed in the demo version *)
Clements <=- (* Must not be changed in the demo version *)
000000000000000000 <=- (* Must not be changed in the demo version *)

This configuration file must be located in your 15PUZZLE default
directory. You may name this file whatever you like, but the name of
the file must be passed to 15PUZZLE via the Batch file that executes
the door.

SINGLE SYSTEMS
--------------

15PUZZLE:
------------
A sample door batch file is included in the 15PUZZLE Archive.
On my BBS, this file is called 15PUZZLE and does the following:

ECHO OFF
CD\DOORS <=- (Switch to my doors Directory.)
15PUZZLE 15PUZZLE.CFG <=- (Execute the door program and pass the
configuration filename to the program.
NOTE: For single node systems only.)
CD\PCB <=- (Go back to PCB DIR when user exits door.)
BOARD <=- (Restart PCBoard.)


The (DTR patched) file BRUN30.EXE and DORPCH35.EXE must be in the
same directory as 15PUZZLE or accessible via the DOS PATH command.
Remember to put "SET LIB=" to the path to DORPCH35.EXE in your
autoexec.bat like DORPCH35 docs say.


MULTINODE SYSTEMS
-----------------

15PUZZLE may be used on a 2 node system provided a separate
configuration file is maintained for each node.

15PUZZLE 15PUZZLE.CFx

Note the "x" in the configuration filename. This will be either
a 1 or 2, depending on which node the door is running from.


DOOR OPERATION
--------------


F1 - Displays the version of DOORPCH compiled and linked
into the DOOR.
F2 - Displays a callers Alias if one is used via the Door
Monitor program (DOORPCH version) - future.
F3 - Reserved for the future.
F4 - Toggles the Bell on/off. May activate the DOOR Bell.
Value is returned to PCBoard when DOOR completes.
F5 - DOS Shell. Allows SysOp to exit to DOS from inside a
DOOR.
F6 - Displays available MEMORY and available STRING space.
F7 - Toggle the alarm on/off. May activate the DOOR Alarm.
Value is returned to PCBoard when DOOR completes.
F8 - Returns the caller involuntarily to PCBoard.
F9 - Toggles the display on/off.
Value is returned to PCBoard when DOOR completes.
F10 - Activates SysOp / Caller CHAT mode within the DOOR.
ESC - Deactivates CHAT mode. DOOR is resumed.
HOME - HELP key for line 24/25 capabilities.
END - Displays Callers name and miscellaneous information.
PG-DN - Displays Data Phone, Home Phone, Password,
User Comments and SysOps Comments.
PG-UP - Displays Conference caller may access.
UP - Allows the SysOp to temporarily add additional time
to the caller while in the DOOR. This time is NOT
returned to the BBS.
DN - Allows the SysOp to temporarily subtract time from the
caller while in the DOOR. This time is NOT returned
to the BBS.
ALT-N - SysOp next on control/indicator.
Value is returned to PCBoard when DOOR completes.
ALT-X - PCBoard will exit after current caller completes their
session. Value is returned to PCBoard when DOOR
completes.

If you are running in NON-GRAPHICS mode, you MUST have ANSI.SYS
installed as a device driver in your CONFIG.SYS file:

Example: DEVICE=ANSI.SYS

DOORPCH uses this device driver for displaying all colors to the
local console. Color Graphics will always be sent to the local
console if you have defined to PCBSetup that you are running
graphics on the local monitor. If a caller is in non-graphics
mode (NG) on line 25, you will still see colors if PCBSetup has
been configured that way. The reverse is also true. If the
caller is in graphics mode (GR) on line 25) and the local console
is defined to be in non-graphics mode then colors will NOT be
displayed to the local console.

MUSIC

This DOOR program may utilize ANSI music. If it does, and you
are running in a NETWORK, DOORPCH does NOT send ANSI music to the
local console. We have found that under some Multi-Tasking
operating systems such as DoubleDOS that the "partition" locks up
until the music completes. If you are on a single node system
(not in a network), then music WILL be played to the local screen
if the local screen is active (F9 ON).

BELL

DOORPCH logic will not allow a BELL to be sent to the local
console when the local screen is inactive (F9 OFF).


WATCHDOG/CTTY/ANSI.SYS
----------------------

CTTY and WATCHDOG are not required and should not be used with
this program. 15PUZZLE contains its own communication routines
which monitor the COM port. If carrier is lost, it will return
to PCBoard where the BBS will log the user off the system.
Ansi.sys, or something similar, is required for 15PUZZLE to
function properly!


ACKNOWLEDGMENTS
---------------

15PUZZLE incorporates the doors sub-module DORPCH35 written
by Clint Labarthe and Terry Shockley. Many thanks to them for
allowing me the use of their code, without which it is doubtful
these door programs would have been so successful. Keep up the
great work guys!

I'd like to thank my loving wife, Sondra, for her patience and
understanding during the time I spent in front of the computer
working on this door program instead of being with her. I'd
also like to thank her for her continued help in beta testing
all of my door programs. Without her help I wouldn't be where
I am today.

DEMO VERSIONS
-------------

Every demo door is a FULL-FEATURED, NON EXPIRING program with
the exception that it won't save the high scores. Demos of all
of my doors may be obtained by calling The Pegasus BBS. Use the
Door Security System door in the SysOp Conference (door #1) to give
you a working demo code. It will even create demo '.cfg' file(s)
for you. Then you may download the '.cfg' file(s) and door(s).
At NO time should you ever change lines 2, 3, 4 or 5 in any of
the '.cfg' file(s). Upon registering your copy of 15PUZZLE you
will get a new registered code to replace the demo code.


UPDATE POLICY
-------------

All updates of my doors may be obtained by calling The Pegasus BBS.
Use the Door Security System door (door #1) to give you a new code
and '.cfg' file for any door you have registered. Then you may
download the '.cfg' file(s) and door(s).
