A. INTRODUCTION
The program MANAGER.EXE is a utility for use with the DWARZ Game. its
purpose in life is to create a number of different text files showing
the current player rankings amongst the different realms, as well as
showing the individual combined rankings of the different Realms based
upon the latest recons received on the other Realms.

Additionally, MANAGER may be started in a manual 'editing' mode which
provides limited player maintaince capabilities as well as System data
verification.

MANAGER ONLY RUNS ONCE DWARZ HAS BEEN REGISTERED!

B. INSTALLATION
simply place MANAGER.EXE in the Subdirectory containing your DWARZ
Data files and all the required Subdirectories, and then add a line
to run MANAGER.EXE to your Daily maintaince routines. (It really only
needs to be run once per day...)

C. FILES CREATED & MAINTAINED
When intially run, MANAGER will create another subdirectory off your
DWARZ root called DATABASE where it will create/store all the
necessary text files it will be using...no messy set-up or
installation this way!

PLAYERS.ASC This is a Ranked listing of all the players found
in the different Realms from BIGGEST to SMALLEST.
Recreated Daily.

REALMS.ASC This is a Ranked listing showing the TOTAL city
count of each Realm, as well as the Date of the
last recon received from this realm. Recreated
Daily.

LOCALHOF.ASC This is a PERMANENT Text file showing the HIGHEST
ranked player LOCALLY on the First of Each Month.
Updated ONLY on the First day of the Month!

REALMHOF.ASC This Shows the HIGHEST ranked PLAYER in ALL realms on
The first of the Month. Again, Update ONLY on the
first of the Month.

PLAYHOF.ASC This is a PERMANANENT Text file showing the HIGHEST
ranked player on an INTER-REALM basis as of the first
of EACH month. this is updated ONCE at the beginning
of each Month.

D. OPTIONS:
Various options are available via COMMAND LINE Parameters as follows:

MANAGER [SCORES|NOMALACHI] [MANUAL]

 SCORES: Normally all output is sorted according to CITIES, however
Passing this parameter will cause all reports to be sorted
by player SCORES.

 NOMALACHI: The Default is to include the computer generated MALACHI
player in the reports/totals, however passing this
parameter will cause the malachi to be EXCLUDED from
all considerations.

 MANUAL: Normally MANAGER will boot up and create the described
text files then exit, however this parameter will cause
manager to enter the player editor/maintaince mode.
Thus using this parameter is exclusive of all others.

E. MANUAL MAINTAINCE MODE.
Booting manager up in this mode will give you menu containing a few
general player/system maintaince functions including DELETE PLAYER(S),
and VERIFY SYSTEM Data.

Selecting DELETE PLAYERS will show a list of all current players,
their ALIAS Name, and their last play date. Simply select all the
players you wish deleted by moving the highlight bar to the player
name and pressing SPACE BAR. Press RETURN to begin deletion (NOTE:
you will be prompted to confirm delete of player!!).

Selecting VERIFY SYSTEM will display a small table containg all your
vital statistics for the game: (this is provided mostly as a debug
aid in tracking down system problems, so please notify me ASAP
if you notice anything odd on this table!!)

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
