*** EFFECTIVE March 12th 2021 ***

Bucko’s Image On A Stick is no longer available. Bucko has decided to discontinue the Image On A Stick due to various systems seem to misconfigure VICE emulator causing Image to have some configuration issues that lead to BBS crashes.  This is no fault of VICE or IMAGE it is just two environments that have so many possible configurations that are effected by so many factors of each persons system.

You can still download Image 2.0 and Image 3.0 located under Downloads under BBS Software.  These are basically the same thing just not preconfigured and bundled with VICE, you will need to download VICE separately.

We also now have the Image BBS Software message board where you can find and post support questions.

Here is Commodore’s Image BBS v2.0 on a stick!  Bucko of “The Wrong Number ][” has made it so you can copy this version of Image BBS v2.0 to a USB stick that is ready to run under WinVice emulation! Before you know it you will have a fully working Image BBS up and accepting calls through Telnet!

You can view the full story behind “Image BBS 64 version 2.0!!” here.

In the coming months, there will be an update to the BBS on a stick. Actually, 2 updates. First one will give 2.0 the long awaited 19.2k swiftlink emulation, and second there will be a Image BBS v3.0 BBS on a stick when v3.0 is released.. Good things are happening in the Image BBS world..

Line 3112 appears in nearly every +. file. More information would be helpful. What were you trying to do when the load error occurred? What filename appeared to the right of the “Area” line on the sysop screen?

At that point, line 3112 of the “im” file is trying to load the file “e.printmodes”. If it cannot find it, there will be a load error. Make sure you copy the file “e.printmodes” to the device and drive that you defined as your etcetera drive during setup.

Copy the file “e.ecs.main” to the etcetera drive. In fact, please ensure that all the e. files from the IMAGE2.0 R3.1 D2.D81 disk are on your etc drive and all the s. files are on your system drive. The “nm.times” file should go on your mail drive.

Are you using the bbs on a stick?

I think I know what your problem is now. If you’re using the bbs on a stick, after unzipping the file, copy the image20stk folder to the root directory of your C drive and then double click the runme.bat file contained in that folder on your C drive.

I’s ok, you’re making progress. Possibly the reason the device did not save is because you did not assign an access level. Entering 1023 will include all access groups or you could enter a ? for the access level and the BBS will allow you to select which access groups to include and it will calculate the correct number based on your yes/no responses to the groups it displays.. For the remaining items in the Sub configuration, enter 1 for SubOp, 10 for Device, 0 for Drive and leave items 6 through 9 as their default setting. After you quit… Read more »
