I know it's a few days late, but this just came in (rather unexpectedly, I'll admit!) so we're going to run with it.

Alan H., long time active developer for the Atari ST community is donating his most recent innovation, the "ImpoSTer" as a
monthly prize at The DarkForce! BBS, for December 2022.

From the website:

The ImpoSTer adapter is a keyboard/mouse emulator for the Atari ST/STE/MegaST/MegaSTE/TT and Falcon computers. It plugs into the keyboard port of the Atari and has a passthrough port for attaching the original keyboard. The ImpoSTer also features two DB9 joystick ports, with port0 being able to use both joystick and original Atari mice. It also has two USB ports for keyboard/mouse and USB hubs.

So as usual, thanks for calling and good luck to everyone who enters! :)

PS This is running concurrently with the December 2022 Atari Falcon game prize giveaway.

Okay, in an attempt to make things a bit less confusing, there will be 2 separate drawings for the two prizes this month. Using BBS Express! ST's scripting language (because who doesn't like to be up at 3 o'clock in the morning writing code? :) ) I added the option to pick between prize 1 and 2 (or both, if you're feeling supremely lucky), from the Monthly Prize Giveaway screen. Thanks all.

Here's screenshots, in VT52 and ANSI format to demonstrate:

I will be pulling DarkForce! offline later today for some much needed
file backups/maintenance/upgrades. Hopefully, everything won't
take longer than a day or two...

I'll post as soon as we are back online. Thanks all. :)

Okay, we're back up temporarily at least, although I may pull it
down again (off and on) for the next bit.

I was trying to install the RSVE mod (which I did). I was also
hoping to get it to work with my BBS software and the WiModem
232.

While the mod installation seemed go okay, I've been unable to
get the RSVE mod to communicate with the WiModem232 and
my BBS software.

I'll keep working on it. Thank you for being patient...

If you want to follow my bumbling attempts at this you can read
