Anyone else running Mystic?? Contrary to what some say, that is a great piece of software. I use it on my Wrong Number ][ BBS and it acts as a HUB/BBS/Website(for a few weeks it did) File Library Server, Login Menu Server. It's amazing the things you can do with it!!

I remember years ago evaluating the offerings of "current" bbs software to run and for me Mystic won. It is SOO customizable and still has that DOS BBS days feel to it. But the ability to customize it so much is what go me!  Guess you could say I am team Mystic (for a windows bbs). 😉

I did the same thing, I loaded and configured about 10 BBS programs. Mystic by far to me was the easiest to get going. THen as I learned more about it the customizing that can be done with it is unreal! Case in point, I have a File Server which I RLOGIN into from the Mystic or any BBS that supports RLOGIN and can share the files with no issues!

@bucko My only wish for Mystic is I wish it had a better WFC screen. I guess running C-Net and Image for soo many years back in the day I expect to have a good WFC screen with all my stats and quick functions.  I have seen some folks create custom WFC for Mystic but I never looking into that much at all.

@palkat Actually it has a pretty decent one.. Just run Nodespy, I have it set up as a shortcut on my desktop and if I want any info on the BBS I just double click it and bang I can tell you who is online and how many calls etc..

@bucko yeah I always have Node Spy running right above my Mystic Server.  It does work out pretty good that is for sure!

I downloaded it with the intention of setting it up on my Linux Laptop, but that has since been commandeered as a reference laptop on my workbench when repairing Commodore's. It's nice to be able to pull up data sheets and blow them up to a readable version lol. Who were these schematic guys and why where they printing so small? lol

Besides, my first love is my Commodore BBS and I barely have time for that, but I'll always have it up because it's a work in progress.

I did do a lot of research in choosing the PC BBS software, and Mystic seemed to be the best, easiest choice I recall.

@mr-micro a few years back when I was looking for a PC BBS, of all the ones I tried Mystic had the old Commodore Image/CNet feel in the fact that I could customize the business out of it! That is what made me go with Mystic, in fact I changed the default main menu commands to be more Image BBS like. LOL
