This page will attempt to show what I had to do to get DOSEMU and LORD working together.
The first step is to get DOSEMU working.
After DOSEMU ran without problems I loaded the copy of LORD that was
already on my drive from years past (version 3.55). I tried and
failed to get version 4.06
working in DOSEMU. Versions 4.00a
both work beautifully. Castle

LORD ran fine in local mode. I wanted LORD to run as if it were on a
multi-node BBS. To do this I needed something that would create the
DOOR.SYS file that LORD wants. I did not want to make the directory that
LORD resides in globally writeable so I added a new group.
In the end I have a series of scripts that have worked well so far. I do
not have anything that adds new users or allows random people to play. To
play LORD on the system that I put LORD on you must already have access as
well as belong to the group 'bbs.' Adding that functionality should
not be hard but I have no intentions of doing it.
Root access is only required if you wish to add a new group or put the
aliases needed to play in the system profile.
Update: I found that the jennie codes are broken in 4.02a and have
switched back to 4.00a. I did fix the spelling mistake in IGMSEC.INI but
other than that its stock 4.00a.
