• Capture files

    From Cougar428@VERT/CJSPLACE to ALL on Thursday, December 22, 2022 14:49:00
    Hi there, not sure if this is the right place to ask, please point me in
    the right direction if not.

    I recently started using Syncterm to connect and play door games such as Tradewars 2002. I am new to using doors over the net, when I used to use
    the modem with a terminal program I was able to capture text sessions
    while playing TW. I could capture the session and save it from the
    terminal app I was using. I would then use the capture text in my
    Tradewars Assistant application which would help me out with the game.

    Is there a way to capture output through Syncterm so that I can use the
    output for my assistant application?

    Apologies if this is a newbie question.

    Thanks in advance for any information.

    Cougar

    Yes, Alt-C for capture control in SyncTERM. Atl-Z for the menu.

    Thanks MRO - I'll give that a try and see if I can get it working!

    By the way, do you have the registered version of SLMR? I may be
    mistaken, but thought I saw that on one of your replies.

    I love working with these older packages, but always want to register
    them. I would be happy to pay the original programmer, but can rarely
    find any way to even see if they are still around to do so.

    Just wondering about SLMR.

    Thanks again for your help.

    Thank you DM! Apologies as I should probably 'rtfm' before I start
    asking questions.

    Thanks for your assistance though, appreciated greatly.
