The Following Files Should be in the same directory as BBSRACE.EXE :
PLYRFILE.DTA <---- if missing BBSRACE Will Create.
BBSRACE.CFG <---- Modify this file for your BBS.
BBSRACE.DOC <---- The file your reading now.
RACE.EMU <---- Ansi Protocol for Drag Racing.

Running BBS Drag Racing in Local mode :
You may run BBS Drag Racing in the Local mode by typing the following
at the DOS prompt
C:>BBSRACE Your Name
Note : if any parameters are passed to BBSRACE it will assume Local
Mode and won't use the modem at all.
Another way to run local from your BBS is use the Dorinfo1.def door
file or another door file that indicates local by writing 'COM0' to the
door file. When BBS DragRacing reads the door file it searches for 'COM0'.
if it finds 'COM0', It will assume the local mode.
Another way to run local from your BBS is use the Chain.txt door
file or another door file that indicates local by writing 'KB' to the
door file instead of a baud rate. When BBS DragRacing reads the door
file it searches for 'KB'. if it finds 'KB', It will assume the
Running BBS Drag Racing on your BBS :
To run BBS Drag Racing on your BBS you will need to know what your
BBS uses as a user file that is "DORINFO1.DEF", "CALLINFO.BBS"
"USERFILE" etc.. If you don't Know What line numbers that your
userfile uses for User's first names and Last names and Baud
Rates, You'll need to look at them using a text editor and figure
out which line has this information..
If your userfile is not a text file, that is, a binary file or
or something else then you might try using QKDOOR.EXE to convert
your user file into a text type file.
If your userfile has a Time left line and a Time Limit Line
then BBS Drag Racing will use that information if you tell it
where to find it..
NOTE : If You are using a Non-Standard COM Port Configuration, See the
Accompanying file - COMPORT.DTA, for information on changing the
NEW: BBS Drag Racing Now supports Systems that use Chain.Txt user file.
for reading the amount of time a user has left..(in Seconds)
check out the BBSRACE.Cfg file for more info.
Use Setup.exe program that comes with BBS dragracing package.
Simply plug in the appropriate information, set up your batch file
or whatever it is that you do to run a door.. and your all set.
If You have Registered BBS Drag Racing with the Author (me), It is very
important to make sure that the upper and lower case letters are
correct in your registration number.
BBS Drag Racing will detect a Carrier Loss and return to the system.
It will update the player's status in the player data file, So dropping
carrier won't undo any monetary losses etc...
- Previous versions had a bug that would choke the program and corrupt
the playerfile when a player got more than 2.1 billion dollars.
Now the Program has a way to deal with those players who really make
the big bucks.
NEW: BBS Drag Racing Now supports Ansi Sound.
Since the F-Keys are disabled in non-registered mode, you may copy
file "LOCSND.FLG" into your BBS Drag Racing directory to get sound
for your local terminal.
