SetUp & Installation :


After uncompressing this archive you need to make sure the following files
are all present.

Blood Bank.Exe : The executable file for conquest.
Sysop.Doc : This File.
Sample.Cfg : A sample configuration file for you to use.
Sample.Bat : A sample batch file to run Blood Bank.
Opening.Ans : The ANSI screen you will see when beginning the
Blood Bank.
End.Ans : The log-off ANSI screen that is displayed when
leaving Blood Bank.
Atm.Ans : The main screen while in Blood Bank.

Everything else that Blood Bank needs it will create on it's own.

If all of the above files are present simply copy them into their very own
subdirectory. Usually this directory will be a subdirectory of your BBS.
Once you have copied all of the files you need to modify the Sample.CFG file
according to your BBS and it's setup. Below is a breakdown of what we are
looking for in the configuration file (note you can call the file anything
you want to as long as you use your file when loading Blood Bank).

GAP : BBS Type
D:\TriBBS\Doors\BldBank\ : Where the Bank is
The Doctor's Operating Room BBS : Name of BBS
The Computer Doctors : Name of Sysop
38400 : Locked Baud Rate
D:\TriBBS\NWork\ : Work Directory
D:\TriBBS\Doors\BldBank\ : Door Directory

Line # 1 : This is the line where you tell Blood Bank what type of door
data file format you would like to use. At this point we
are only compatible with TriBBS formats :

TriBBS, GAP (Door.Sys).

The file type is specified here as :

TriBBS for TriBBS
GAP for GAP

Line # 2 : This is where you specify where Blood Bank looks for it's data
and resource files. In other words the directory and path
to your main Node.

Line # 3 : This line is for the BBS Name and is critical if you are going
to register with Blood Bank.

Line # 4 : You put your name or the Sysop's name on this line, this is
also critical if you wish to register with Blood Bank.



Line # 5 : If your system is using a modem that has MNP or other error
correction and you are locking the port at a certain speed you
need to place that number (Bps) on this line. If you do not
Lock your serial port then place a 0(zero) on this line.

Line # 6 : This line is for your BBS main Working directory. With TriBBS
this is usually called the NWork directory.

Line # 7 : This line is for your door directory. The path to where you
installed this Blood Bank.

After you have setup the configuration file you need to create a batch file
to run the door from your BBS. The following is an example of a batch file
for running Blood Bank from TriBBS :

Sample.Bat

@Echo Off
Cd\TriBBS\Doors\BldBank
BldBank Sample.CFG
Cd\TriBBS
Board

You simply tell the computer to change directories into the Blood Bank
directory and then run the program with the configuration file as the first
parameter. The last line is the batch file that is used to load the bulletin
board system back up. If you have any problems with re-loading the board
refer to your BBS' manual. Once the program has executed the batch file will
load TriBBS and continue as normal.

You are all setup to run Blood Bank now and shouldn't have any problems.
The unregistered copy is limited to 300 minutes deposit time and no user
editor, if you would like the added convenience of an user editor just
register your copy Blood Bank. However, if you do encounter a problem with
