giving them the first "exact" line of a song and let them guess the exact

BOARD

NOTE: SONGS requires the presence of BRUN45.EXE either in the
same directory as Songs or accessible via PATH. If you set
your library in autoexec.bat and all the brun files there,
then you have no problems..

SET MYLIB = C:\MYLIB

Be sure to put all your brun*.exe files in the mylib directory!

NOTE: This door is multi-node capable and the requirement is to have a
different Songs.cfg passed on the batch file command line, such
as: Songs Songs1.cfg * Songs Songs2.cfg * Songs Songs3.cfg!

function properly!

  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/
