    Hey DM. Why is minesweeper in exec instead of xtrn?

    He'll have better answers than me, but:

    JS modules (including games) aren't really "external" to Synchronet in the way that an actual "door" program is. IIRC xtrn/ was originally intended for "truly external" programs.

    Since this game consists of one script (in exec/) and one help file (in text/) it's not really generating any "clutter". I lean toward putting stuff in xtrn/
    if it would keep things better organized.

    No particular reason.

    Yeah, I didn't really think too much on it. It does create/use a data file (minesweeper.jsonl) - so that could be an argument to put it in xtrn/minesweeper, to store it's code and text/data in a single location. <shrug>

    I just sort of followed my own example with sbbslist.js where its code/data/text is stored in the separate Synchronet-natural dirs.

    Yeah, I’m the same way as you are. I usually put things in a nicely organized place so I can find things easier otherwise I have to search with windoze through the file manager to find it instead.

    Since this is another new game, any other new games planned on the horizon? 33 so far! This surpassed my expectations altogether here already.

    Not from me. Deuce seems to be porting LORD2 to JS now.

    Yeah I already know about that one. But hopefully another surprise or two would be nice like minesweeper didn’t expect or see it coming. :-)

    I don't think I even knew there was a native minesweeper game. I will have
    to set it up. :)

    That one is freely available today I think.

    NY 2008

    That one is in the Synchronet src tree in src/doors/ny2008.

    I haven't run them myself but there they are.. :)

    Ahh.. OK. No one has done that yet, that I know of. It's nice to see the work that Deuce is doing with LORD currently. With the work he is doing freely available perhaps others will be inspired and add more JS doors.

    If you check in the src directory, I think at least one of those (NY 2008)
    is in there for us to compile if we so desire.
