VOID BBS has been relocated and restored from backup (backup was made 2018-05-25). NONE of the MUDs were reset.

More information on Mod 10: Eternity Awakened can be found here or by selecting NOTES from the main menu on the website.

Reminder: AfterMUD is still in Alpha, while it is the main MUD on this BBS it is very much still a WIP and should be treated as such.
This means development on AfterMUD will once again continue.
Downloads: AKiRA / VOIDBBS

2019-03-18) Website updated gain, enter the realm now brings you to a guide on how to setup MegaMud. AfterMUD has been updated to version 0.2a.

2019-03-11) The old sage has been spotted in the Dragon's Teeth Hills! Introduction of the level 40 daily quest.

2019-03-08) Website has *NEW* commands! We are now directly tied into the DAT files on the website. Use HERO, ITEM and NPC to pull up hero sheets, item information and monster/npc information. Both of these commands even support wildcards for searching with the asterisk (use: *). I have also integrated this into most mouse events (example: clicking on a hero or item will look up said hero or item for you). VOID BBS is back from hiatus! We are on new hardware now, I have the BBS running on a VM off of a Dell R620 locally at my residence. Balthazar mudbot has been shelved as all information is pulled direct from DATs.

2018-05-25) VOID BBS goes down for relocation (this took way too long I am sorry).

2018-03-26) Attention adventurer's of the Realm! An old sage has arrived in the Portal Room, talk to him to learn what he has to offer you. Daily quests have been added, these use direct database injections on cleanup to reset quest flags NO SPECIAL QUEST RESET ITEMS NEEDED!

2018-03-14) Website has two new commands that utilize the finger server. Use # to pull up a list of users on the entire BBS and use WGSERV to pull up statistics about the BBS. Alternatively you can click the Worldgroup icon/name or the online count below the terminal, this will issue the commands for you.

2018-03-13) BBS has moved to a new domain (old one still functions as well), website was also remade into an actual terminal. No longer must you click on things but you can also use your keyboard to navigate just like the BBS! BBS Advertisement image has been updated with new ANSI!

2018-02-28) Balthazar has been re-worked to track people by first name and update family names accordingly. This should fix most of the weird issues that use to happen with the top lists tracking the same person multiple times. AfterMUD has been updated to version 0.1f, see the release notes for more information.

2018-02-25) MajorMUD and AfterMUD have been reset!
P.S. I have also started updating the Wiki again...

how do you get "elite" access?

Merely asking, its really meant for MUDOPs however. Everyone gets MAP and GOTO, ELITE merely has REPORTS and LISTS as well and happens the be the class the sysop playing accounts have (ie. mine).

Well I finally figured out a solution for all of the web stuff I have been working on for some time now!

All characters can now be clicked on, whether in the who's online or top adventurer's list, to get to that characters Hero Sheet. The hero sheet includes the "stat", "inventory" and "spells" game outputs for each character.

Background Info
Getting the DATs from PSQL to MySQL was not as tricky as I thought it would be. Once I was able to do this I merely added some lines into my WGSCLEAN.BAT in order to copy the needed MajorMUD DATs over to the PSQL database folder every night and then run the PHP update script to resync from PSQL -> MySQL.

This allows me to have ingame data displayed on the website that is cache'd from the previous cleanup.

Sadly I cannot figure out how to use the live DATs cause when WGSERV is loaded the files are all locked, so I will settle with this for now. If anyone has any thoughts into this I'm all ears!
P.S. If anyone has any questions on setting up anything similar, feel free to ask!

Website has been revamped (same design basically) with terminal access! No longer are you restricted to using the mouse on the website, you can now use your keyboard just like a terminal!

I also bought a new domain to go along with the BBS,
1) Add in online information from finger server
2) Add search capabilities for heroes and items
3) Allow monster,shop and spell lookup and search
4) Flesh out captures & maps sections
5) AKiRA File Libraries (massive side-project)

VOIDBBS is getting a new home hardware-wise and will be down for a few days, possibly a week total. Things were supposed to be sorted on time but something got messed up on my end. Apologies... no data has been lost however and should be back up as normal in a few days.

Hi, VOID is a really great BBS - brings back wonderful memories from when I used to play the game all the time.
Kudos on building a wonderful home for MajorMud.
Glad to hear new hardware is on its way - any updates on when you will restore the game?
Encourage all to come visit and make an account.

The VOID BBS website has undergone major updates!
  • Balthazar bot is no longer used. Information is pulled direct from BTRIEVE every night at cleanup.
  • Users online is pulled from the finger daemon and cross-referenced with the BTRIEVE export.
  • New Commands: HERO, ITEM, NPC and QUESTS.
  • Updated Commands: TOP
You can now lookup any hero, item or monster/npc in the realm (HERO, ITEM, NPC). These commands support wildcard searching (results are then displayed and can be typed out or clicked on for ease-of-use). Hero sheets show the players stat page, inventory, spells and banks. Item sheets will show item description, stats and where it is sold and/or who drops it. The npc sheet is used to look up NPCs or monsters of the realm, this will also show description and stats along with an attempt at giving you a location. Finally the quest sheet will look up a character and show you their current question completion status according to their current level.

The TOP command has also been updated to retrieve its information from BTRIEVE, all xp/hr calculations are done on a 24 hour basis (ie. it averages from the last 24 hours, in between cleanups). You can also now show top lists for each class by using TOP <class>. Additionally there is now a top wealth list available with TOP WEALTH.

NOTE: Some of these are still a work-in-progress.
