• tickit.ini/tickit.cfg

    From Charles Stephenson@1:226/17 to All on Monday, April 01, 2019 19:09:52
    All,

    I've setup my BBS to accept filebone(s), and I finally noticed that it's not importing anything to the right folder. I had like over 100 files in my ../SBBS/echomail/secure folder. I setup a 'timed' event like it says on the wiki. I set it up just as it says.

    This is how my tickit.ini looks:

    Dir=FSX_INFO
    Path=/var/opt/files/FSXNet/FSX_INFO links=21:2/100,21:2/105.1,21:2/105.11,21:2/105.11
    (I'm also trying to foward to 3 of my points)

    This is the file section in SCFG:

    Long Name: FSXNet: Information
    Short Name: FSX_INFO
    Internal Code: FSXNET_FSX_INFO
    <Default up til..>
    Transfer File Path: /var/opt/files/FSXNet/FSX_INFO

    You cannot use both "Dir" and "Path" for a file area. One or the
    other.

    Sounds to me like you want the "Dir" option only.

    Yeah I missed that when I read it the first time (reading with one tired eye!) now I'm having a problem with tickitcfg.js booting with a error 1.. I have some ideas why. gonna work on that this week

    I've had a few issues with tickitcfg also... You can just edit
    tickit.ini by hand, it's actually quite a simple file. The
    configurator (tickitcfg.js) is not really needed.

    Read the Wiki section about this again:

    yes you certainly can... that's how i managed mine until i did some work on tickitcfg.js...

    true again but it does make it easier... especially since it can import the files areas data and then you can use that to further configure the tic processing of the different files areas...

    That's what I did, but I'm missing something in the cfg file that's making it not work. I'm gonna play around with it this weekend

    I guess I never told you about that, quite a while back when I was
    having other tickit issues that we were working on... Tickitcfg
    would often just crash/exit and not save the changes I had made.
    This was on the Windoze version and I just edited the .ini
    manually, largely because I had enough other problems which were
    more important at the time. Pretty sure that was all before you
    made the extensive changes to tickit.js (and tickitcfg.js).
    Probably corrected now, I haven't tried it again for a while now.

    The configurator (tickitcfg.js) is not really needed.

    true again but it does make it easier... especially since it can
    import the files areas data and then you can use that to further
    configure the tic processing of the different files areas...

    Yep. I'll give the current tickitcfg.js a test run (on Linux now)
    and see how it goes.


    ... Gone crazy, be back later, please leave message.

    How recently have you fixed any 'issues'? I'm using the Linux version. I think the last time I upgraded was a month ago. as of now, I'm having the same issues with it exiting with error code 1. I just edited it manually, and got it working!

    I DO have a question. Is there a way to export my file areas into tickit? (Let me beter explain)

    I imported the fidonet filebone in scfg (FILEGATE.Z33) into my file area. Now, is there a way to do the same with tickit, instead of manually adding all the areas?

    according to the CVS logs, the last update(s) to tickitcfg.js were on 2019 Jan 30 by rob... v1.15 is the latest that i'm aware of...

    as of now, I'm having the same issues with it exiting with error code
    1.

    i have no clue about any error codes with any of the js stuff...

    I just edited it manually, and got it working!

    edited what? the ini file?

    i didn't add/modify the capability but there is something... it looks like you can do this...

    jsexec tickitcfg.js import=foo

    where "foo" is a file library name...

    i don't recall doing this on my setup but i do have some 300+ areas in my tickit.ini file... i may have ""imported"" them manually with a few macros but i really do not recall... the key was to get the area names in brackets and the
    "Dir=" with the library/area name... from there, since i was doing everything manually, i added my main uplink with the "Links" line... since there is not yet an areafix type capability for tickit, i have to manually add/remove systems that want FDNs or not...

    Sure did. Worked fine, no crashes, and looks a lot different than
    I remember it being before all your changes. Nicely done.

    i won't tell you that but it is possible... depending on when you did it and the capability was added...

    I forgot, I restored my BBS from a backup, I just upgraded everything and recompiled.

    I just edited it manually, and got it working!

    edited what? the ini file?

    Yes, my tickit.ini

    I imported the fidonet filebone in scfg (FILEGATE.Z33) into my file

    I HOPE that works, like you, I have A LOT of areas. I'd hate to have to manually add them! :(
