      Hi Roger - nice to hear from you after all these years!
      Ok Dave. There are lots of options. You can run 'old' DOS BPQ applications in 2K/XP systems using BPQ1632. See the files section for the software. Version 7.01 of WinFBB will interface directly to BPQ32. I'm about to release a replacement for TFWIN and TFWIN32/TF2AGW which will allow 16 or 32bit versions of WFBB to use BPQ32.  If you are still running AK1A cluster that will work fine using BPQ1632. Or you can upgrade to either free or commercial Windows Cluster programs such as DXNet or AR-Cluster. Any of these would allow the user to select either BBS or DX. 
      I don't know much about SatGate - how does that link to FBB?

          I'm up for hearing about this one! I have run FBB with BPQ for 16 years. I also have a DX node on the same
          network. I would like the RF people to be able to connect to the BPQ node and select BBS or DX for the
          cluster and take them there.
          Right now I just have the node going to the FBB bbs. I'm still running 4.08A! The cluster is all telnet.

      Hi John.

         Glad to see you are returning to the scene again!
      I am looking to run two networked computers, one
      running FBB and the other running my Satgate, which
      needs to talk to FBB, and also the AR-Cluster node.
      This will have to be accessed over the network from

        I was wondering if BPQ32 will cater for this? I was
      going to try the old 4.08 but did not think it would
      be too successful with the Cluster as well on the
      Satgate machine.

        The RF feed for the Cluster node will be on the
      Satgate machine, with it's own 70Mhz radio.

      Looks like another foul-up from G8BPQ!

      The code is not doing what I intended. A new version
      will be released soon.

      It's probably worth explaining the reason for the
      change. There has always
      been a problem with running AR-Cluster and other BPQ
      applications, as
      AR-Cluster writes the "Config File Location" registry
      value every time it
      starts, so you can't put the BPQ files anywhere else.
      The new "BPQ
      Directory" key, apart from being a better description
      (it points to things
      other than the config file) gets round this problem,
      and lets you put your
      BPQ32 files wherever you like. I had intended the
      change to be backward
      compatible, but unfortunately messed it up.

      While I'm here, I'll document another change. Almost
      from the beginnings of
      BPQ32 there has been a problem whereby if you ran two
      or more BPQ
      applications, you could stop and restart the second
      and subsequent ones in
      any order, but if you closed the first one, the system
      would hang. This has
      now been fixed.

      The "Using Config From" message is new. It is intended
      to make tracking down
      config problems easier.

      I've modified the config file search. What it is
      supposed to do is look
      first for the reg value "BPQ Directory". If that is
      not present it looks for
      "Config File Location". If that is not set, it looks
      in the current
      directory. This should be backward compatible with the
      old version, as
      AR-Cluster sets
      "Config File Location" to c:\program
      files\Ar-Cluster\BPQ32. If it fails to
      find the files, it looks like something is not working
      as I intended. Could
      you send me a dump of the registry tree
      "HKLM\Software\G8BPQ\BPQ32" so I can

      There is a new program, SetRegistryPath in the
      release. If you run this from
      the directory containing your config files, it should
      set up the new
      registry entry.

      When I uprev'd to 4.09u I ran into the following

      When AR Cluster starts BPQ32 the dos screen for BPQ32

      'Using config from: C:\Program Files\AR-Cluster'

      This causes a runtime error IF the BPQ32 files are
      anywhere other than
      in the main AR subdirectory. (the error is produced if
      the files are in-
      C:\Program Files\AR-Cluster\BPQ32)

      This is the first version I have seen this line in.
      Any idea how to get
      BPQ32 to see the correct file directory when it is
      started by ARC? (the
      registry is config'd correctly to show the path to
