    From Flavio Bessa@4:801/189.1 to Gonzalo Fernandez Ordas on Tue Nov 13 09:39:22 2018
    Hello Gonzalo.

    I have finally managed to download and install the BW for Mac! ;)

    A few questions:

    - As I could notice, it's a bundle of DOSBOX. How do I integrate it in such a way that it can read my directories (My BW packages are downloaded to /Users/flbessa/multimail/down for instance)
    - How can I "register" the SW?

    Hello Gonzalo.

    I have finally managed to download and install the BW for Mac!
    ;)
    A few questions:

    - As I could notice, it's a bundle of DOSBOX. How

    There are a few problems with the Bluewave under DOSBOX. One problem
    shows up when it is packing up its files, and causes a serious flaw.
    There is a fix for this problem. Take a look at the discussion on
    vogons.org

    https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=18242&p=132706&hilit=bluewave#p132706

    The other problem has to do with the way that Bluewave uses the
    timestamps on the QWK files. There is no fix I know of for this, but it
    is not too serious. Because of these problems, I run BlueWave in a
    virtual WINXP window, but if you fix the first problem you should be
    able to run it using DOSBOX.

    do I integrate it in such a way that it can read my
    directories (My BW packages are downloaded to /Users/flbessa/multimail/down for instance)

    When you open up Bluewave, there is a menu at the top. Use the arrow to
    go over to the CONIG option. There you will find options on where to
    look for your mail packets / reply packets etc. Since Bluewave is in
    reality a DOS program, it is going to be looking for directories in the
    DOS form, e.g. D:\users\flbessa\multimail\down etc. I don't know enough
    about MAC to say how you should set that up. I suspect that there might
    be some sort of "mount" command that would allow you to equate D: to a particular Mac directory, e.g. Set D: = /users/flbessa/multimail and
    then go from there. If you can get that to work, then D:\down would be
    where your mail goes.

    - How can I "register" the SW?

    You cannot register it any more. The original author left the scene
    several decades ago. You can run it as unregistered. You might find a registration key if you search the web hard enough.

    hey Flavio,

    give me a couple of days please as I am working away for a couple of days and I need my laptop which is back home to have a look...

    Many thanks

    One can contact me. I don't normally agree with cracking software but it's been 20+ years; George ain't comin' back (though I wish I could get the source!).

    Later,
    Sean

    Yeah, by default it will be looking inside of the BlueWave.app/Contents/Resources/bin/ directory.
    If you want to manipulate the paths then you should have to configure file:

    BlueWave.app/Contents/Resources/bin/dosbox.conf which is the one for DosBox.



    - How can I "register" the SW?

    At the present, there is not legal way of registering it(as they have already said), but it's still a fully working copy.

    Also this copy it's already patched, with the very latest patch ever released for the 2K effect...

    Great! I hope to start using it pretty soon.
