DarkFire 2000 v2.41
“Where GBBS ‘Pro’ leaves off, we begin”
Welcome to DarkFire 2000 v2.41!! This software was, at one time, commercially available for sixty or more dollars (depending on the version). However, due to a new endeavor, it was decided to release it as Freeware, in order to familiarize people with DF/Productions. The programs contained herein do work. There are still bugs, but ones that simply need time to get worked out (the message bases are the most problematic area, but there is a new PSE message base in 2.41. Be sure to test your system fully before putting it up). We will not be offering major support for this software, becuase we are involved in another project (see below), but will attempt to do our best to help you out. Y

This set of programs was designed to fulfill the need for a truly flexible, up-to-date and easy to use bulletin board program for the Apple II series of computers. The software is written in ACOS, and uses the ACOS compiler that came with your copy of GBBS “Pro”. While GBBS was a useful system, many people needed much more than what it offers – and began to write their own GBBS “Pro” modifications using ACOS.
DarkFire 2000 began a long time ago as that very thing – a heavily modified version of GBBS “Pro”. However, it became apparent at a certain point that it would simply be easier to take what had been learned modifying GBBS, and create a whole new BBS package, rather than use a modified GBBS ‘Pro’. And so, what you are using is just that – a completely new, original, and well designed set of ACOS source code segments that will make your BBS what you always hoped it could be.
