Getting Started:

Well know big deal here if you want to make a directory in
your OS (DOS, 4DOS) like so:
C:\>md mx
Then change to that directory and like so:
C:\>cd mx
I give good OS lessions ?
Now make another directory from their for your files that
you download using Mx Light:
C:\>md files
Now unarchive Mx Light into the mx directory and type
mx from the OS prompt:

Mxlight.cfg not found

Enter your Com Port: Here you should enter the com port that your modem
is hooked to such as 1, 2, 3 or 4.
for PS2's you will have the choice of com port
1 thur 8

Enter your Baud Rate: Here you should enter the Highest speed that your
modem can handle such as 300, 2400, 57600 or
anything upto 115200.

Enter your Download Directory: Here you should enter the full path to
the directory you made under mx such as
C:\MX\FILES\ be sure and include the
backslash after your download directory.

Pick your Default Terminal Emulation: Here you should hit "A" for ANSI
"V" for VT100 or T for Avatar /0+
You can always change this Later
inside the Terminal Program.

Do you want Exploding Window(Y/N): Just hit Y if you want um if not
just hit enter.

Enter a default Username for Phone Book: MXLIGHT will use the name for
the default name in the Phone

Enter a default Password for Phone Book: Same as above default Password.

Pick your dialing Mode: Select T for tone dialing or P for Pulse dialing.

The screen will clear and your ready to go Hit the HOME
key if your not sure what to do here is a general list
of most of the commands you can preform in Mx Light.


Alt-X to Exit the Program and return to OS.
Alt-P to change baud rate if you need to.
Alt-J to Shell to OS.
Alt-C to Clear the Screen.
Alt-H to Hangup Modem while your connected.
Alt-I to See the Intro Screen again.
PgUp to Upload Files.
PgDn to Download Files.
Alt-D to Enter Phone Book and Dial a number.
Alt-= to Toggle DoorWay Mode.
Alt-E to Start up Mx Light Full Screen Editor.
Alt-A to Toggle Capture File.
Alt-V to change Terminal Emulation.
Alt-T to Toggle Chat Mode.
F1 to send Username from Phone Book
F2 to send Password from Phone Book
Alt-B to change buffer size.

I'll now give alittle info on each command:

Alt-X not that hard to figure out Exit back to which you came.

Alt-P will allow you to Manual change your baud rate you should
never have to do this since Most of the Modem Handling is

Alt-J Envolks a Shell to your OS type exit to return back into
the Terminal right were you left off.

Alt-C Clears your terminal screen.

Alt-H Maybe you called one of those bbs's that takes a day and
a half to hangup after you log off.

Alt-I Just Show's you the same intro screen that you seen
when you started the program.

PgUp (Number 9 on your KeyPad) will bring up a menu with
your choices of Protocol's Allway's use Zmodem if you can.

PgDn (Number 3 on your KeyPad) will bring up a menu with
your choices of Protocol's Allway's use Zmodem if you can.

Alt-D Brings up the Phone Book,

Alt-= is a very useful function it set's up the Extended
DoorWay codes to be used with Full Screen Editor's Games
and other's were you need full control over the keyboard.
When in DoorWay Mode everthing you type will be sent over
the modem, so if your in DoorWay Mode you hit PgUp and it
Sends The DoorWay Scan Code. So if your ever having problems
were you can't get a menu to work or something check and
see if your in DoorWay Mode by Hitting Alt-=, because when
your in DoorWay Mode Alt-X want exit the Program it will
just send Alt-X over the Modem.

Alt-E Get's you into the Full Screen Editor it has it's
own help so I want go into much info on it.

Alt-A will ask you for a file name to capture to if you
just hit enter it will capture to a file MXWORK.TXT then
you can save the file with that name or choice any other
when you save the file.

Alt-V brings up a small Menu to let you select Ansi Avatar
or VT100 Terminal Emulation.

Alt-T turns on the Chat mode your still in a Full Terminal
mode it just set's up the Echo and Cr Linefeeds needed when
chatting with another Terminal Program.

F1 will send your Username from the Phone Book to the Remote
BBS. You must have used the Phone Book to call the Number
for this to work.

F2 to Send Password same as above.

A-B at speeds above 9600 you may find the need to make your
buffer size much larger then the default which is now 5000 for
in buffer and 5000 for out buffer. If your having problems with
file transfers and ANSI then you need a bigger buffer.

Well that's about all I can think of to get you started it's not that
hard so if this manual has left you confused in anyway don't worry
about it just use Mx Light and You'll figure it out.
