The FREEware concept:
TG -> RG is released into the public domain with only one "price".
We ask that you let us know what you think of our program and that you
help distribute it as far as you can! (cheap at half the price, eh?).
Also, if you see a need for a particular utility for Renegade, get ahold
of one of us! We're always on the prowl for a good project .
We can be reached either through netmail, or through any of several forums
in the ITCNET.

Renegade is software owned by Cott Lang. Thanks to Cott for letting Josh
use his source code to build from, without it, this program would have been
a real chore! Thanks for all the support Cott!
Overview of TG -> RG:
TG -> RG will convert all of your Telegard BBS files over to a format that
Renegade BBS can use, thereby making it easy on all of your Users (and on
the SysOp as well, of course!). So simple it pretty much runs itself,
but there are a couple of things you need to know about it. TG -> RG takes
the grief out of having to re-enter all of your Users, File base information,
etc. by hand (or making your Users log on as "new" once again).
This archive consists of two files:
TG2RG.DOC This text file you are reading
TG2RG.EXE The executable program
Operation of TG -> RG:
1. TG -> RG must be able to locate the Renegade RENEGADE.DAT file. So
either your BBS directory must be on the path, or TG -> RG must reside
in the same directory as the RENEGADE.DAT file.
2. Before running TG -> RG, you must have a copy of Renegade installed;
TG -> RG does not turn your Telegard BBS into a Renegade BBS, it simply
converts the BBS files into a Renegade format in their own directories.
3. Run TG -> RG - the program will prompt you to confirm conversion of each
Telegard File before it makes any conversion.
4. Continue to enjoy your BBS, now using Renegade software!
1. Before running TG -> RG *BACK UP* your Telegard BBS and your Renegade BBS
files in case of any accidental corruption. This shouldn't happen,
but it's nice to have in case it does!
2. As TG -> RG runs, it will move converted files from the Telegard BBS
directory to your Renegade BBS directory. This way none of your
Telegard BBS files risks being overwritten by this program.
3. You will need a separate program called MCICONV.EXE to convert all the
MCI strings to the new Renegade format. Until you have ran this, all of
your MCI codes will be jumbled and make no sense.
If you have any problems, or comments as to the usage or production of
this program, feel free to call our BBS's:
