Telegard Mouse Interface Module
Written by
Lord Winsor
For mouse use with Telegard: V1.1.

Alright, you are probably wondering just what the heck this program is.
Well, it's not really a program, it's a little menu for use with your
Telegard that allows you to do some things with the mouse, instead of with
your keyboard, if you're lazy like I am. I wrote this after I got my mouse
on Christmas and decided "Hey, I think I want to add some mouse functions
to Death Vale!" so I did, using a neat menu program with my mouse.

The menu/program was designed for the 3-button Genius Mouse, and takes
approx. 10k of system memory when loaded. It does, however work on other
mouse systems and has been tried with both 2 button mouses and other
manufacturers mouses. Anyhow, here are the parts of the archive:

GMOUSE.COM - Genius Mouse Driver. Called up with your comport that your
mouse is in, as in "GMOUSE 2". This is just your run of the mill
driver. You will need it for the mouse menus instead of your
standard mouse driver.
GMOUSE.SYS - An alternate to GMOUSE.COM, it is called up the same way
and serves the same purpose, except is a SYS file and can be loaded
up by your CONFIG.SYS with a DEVICE=GMOUSE.SYS (Followed by 1 or 2).
TELEGARD.GMK & TELEGARD.MNU - The actual menu for the interface. It can't
be changed without the special program and looks just like junk if
you type it out, so just make sure you have it, as otherwise this
program won't work.
GMENU.COM - Ahh, the menu runner. Ran with the name of the Genius Mouse
Module you want to run, in this case, you type "GMENU TELEGARD".
READ.ME - The Documentation file you are reading now.

Ok, so to load your Telegard Mouse-Menu, you make sure you have your mouse
driver loaded, then you make sure you have GMENU in your path or in your
current directory and make sure you have the Telegard Menu files in your
current directory, then you enter GMENU TELEGARD and that should load it.

Next things next, load up your Telegard (BBS.EXE or TELE.BAT, etc.) and
when you get to your Waiting for Caller Screen, hit the left mouse button.
This should bring up a main menu where you can choose from three smaller
menus, one for the WFC screen, one for when a user is online, and one
for when you're online. Just click which one you want and click from there.
Pretty easy. Anyhow, the button functions when you aren't in the menu format
are: Left Button - Call up Menu. Middle Button - . Right Button - .

That should be about all you need to know. If you have any comments or ideas
that could be helpful or new menu features that you would like to see added,
please contact me at my BBS, Death Vale (313)/646-5632.

Thanx a bunch...

  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/
