(Warning: Old School chatter among us :) )

What I'm wanting to do is write a bbs door game with a tcp client built 
in.. Local input (from the door) gets sent across tcp to the server, 
which is then relayed to all other nodes.

Basically, real time interbbs.

I'm the developer of Legend of the Red Dragon, Lord2, Teos, and many 
other door games and utilities. Interbbs exists, but its slow, and no 
where near real time. A client built into the door that connected to the 
main server (or a hub/relay server) would change things dramatically.

I had originally looked at ConCli1.dpr for its simplicity, and the 
thought that all I had to do was check for local input before running 
ProcessMessages .. Judging by ConSrv1.dpr, I'll have to go about things 
a different way.

Thanks for the heads up Francois!
