8. Creating and Editing Your own Screens
The different screens in ARK... are saved in a text file named "RACK"
plus the rack number plus the extension ".ARK"

ex. Rack number twelve is named RACK12.ARK
Rack number one is named RACK1.ARK

These files can be edited with any text editor and most word
processors. I fully encourage you to make a backup copy of the files and
experiment with the different screens. The format of the files is
detailed below.
The file is layed out as a block that resembles the way it looks on
screen. The file contains information such as what background is displayed
for this rack and what the rack looks like. A partial file is shown below.

  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/
