If you ran versions before v6.0, you MAY continue playing from v5.0-5.3,
however, it is recommended that you do reset... Your choice.
Here are the steps you need to take to set up Space Empire Elite 5.1+...
First, if you were running 5.0, you don't need to go much further.
All you need to do is delete your old SECONFIG.DAT file, re-run the
SECONFIG.TOS program (there is a new parameter). Now make a new
folder for your SE data files, and drag the SE*.*, MARKET.DAT,
SPCLOCK.DAT, INSURGE.DAT, DEADP.DAT, and ELITPLR.DAT files to this
folder (which you assigned in the SECONFIG program. You are all set
now.
What if you were earlier than that? Delete ALL your old SE files,
because you are now starting off new...
Here is what you do now:
(1) Copy all the SE files contained in this archive to your main
BBS directory on your base drive.
(2) Making sure that SECONFIG.TOS is in this main directory, run
it, and fill out the parameters as applicable to you.
(3) Create a folder for the one you assigned as a path for data
files created by SE.
(4) Setup a link to SE as applicable to your BBS. If you are Forem,
this means to set up your FDOORS.DAT file... Space Empire does
not need any i/o redirection. If you run Express ST, then
make sure to use the script file (SPESTART.HLP) which is enclosed
in this archive so that you can have automatic name detection.
(5) Now run the game... It will create all its data files and you
should be all set.
Problems? Contact me (Jon Radoff) at the Middle Earth BBS at
508-393-3875. Up to 9600 baud...
Space Empire Elite is not public domain, and is not shareware (people
get upset when I call it shareware, so let's redefine things a bit).
It is commercial software - however, it will allow you to run it for
a limited amount of time (until your 8th player slot gets filled).
That should give you enough time to decide whether it is worth paying
for.
If you do decide to buy Space Empire and a fully registered version,
which includes support for all future version, the name of your BBS
on the title screen, then it is only $10. Mail that to me, and you
can download what you need from my BBS. If the mail is easier for
you, than add another $2 (to make a total of $12) and include a blank
disk for me to put it on. Sorry, but I can only return money if it
does not come with a disk. The address is:
Jon Radoff
18 Charina Road
Northboro, MA 01532
Money Orders preffered, but checks are OK. Make 'em payable to Jon
Radoff.
Thanks for all the support, and I hope you really enjoy Space Empire
Elite v5.1.
