I am having issues removing the Board system on my mud. It came installed, and I can't find anything on how to remove it and I don't know where all the pieces of it are. Also need ot know what to put in for the general notes, changes, ideas, and all that. Thanks

Well, the first questions that come to mind are...

What code base?

Have you started with the commands used by the player, and followed up/down the function chain to find all of the different things that go into the note/board system?

I just realized how vague I was in the orginal post. Ok, what my issue is is just this: The ROM codebase I have came with the BOARD system installed for the notes. Such as that there are no ideas, changes, ideas, penalties, none of that. There are different boards that people can post to and read from, like General, Personal, Idea, and such. I do not like that system. I would like to uninstall it and reinstall the orginal four type note system that comes with the basic codebases. How would I go about doing that?

Well, like I said...

Figure out the commands that the players use...run through those functions, and find the functions they call for writing to, deleting, etc things from the boards.

Then look at those functions. Compile a list of functions used in relation to the board system, and which are board-system only, which are used by other things.

Then, when you're pretty sure you've got it all listed, destroy everything board-related

That'll take care of the old board system. After that, install a new one however you'd want to.

My issue with that is that I just tried, and screwed it up, so i put up my backup files, but another thing is that there is no snippet type thing that explains what i need to make the orignal note system found in the orginal rom to work. Anyone ever done this before? I mean, gone from the orginal system to this board system and then back again?

Download board-2.zip (not tgz). I think thats the one that tells you how to add the board system, so you should be able to use it to remove them.

Most likely you're having problems because Erwins board system puts a player in a different connected state when writing notes, and these are declared in nanny.c and merc.h. Often overlooked.

Hope this helps.
