• Error in tickitcfg.js

    From Night Stalker@VERT/INTERNAL to All on Wed Jan 6 17:28:05 2021
    I just did a clean install of SBBS 3.18 and when I go to configure tickit with the javascript config program I get the following popup error

    Windows Script Host

    Script: F:\sbbs\exec\tickitcfg.js
    Line: 202
    Char: 1
    Error: Syntax Error
    Code: 800A03EA
    Source: Microsoft JScript compilation error

    I had no issues installing and setting up BinkIT .. anyone have ideas?

    Ok cool.. thanks for the info .. I should have known that because when I followed the wiki on BinkIT it used jsexec to run it ..

    Ok.. so I ran the script, it worked once.. I tried to run the script again to configure more options and now I get the following error. I have not made any modifications to any of the .js files. This is a bone stock default 3.18 install

    Tickitcfg.js produces a nice visual interface to your setup but you can edit the ctrl/tickit.ini with any editor. Here's a snipit of mine..

    [DAILYLIST]
    Dir=FIDO-NODELIST
    Handler=tickit/nodelist_handler.js
    HandlerArg={"domain":"fidonet", "match":"Z1DAILY.Z*", "nlmatch":"Z1DAILY.*"}

    [CH-WARE]
    Dir=FIDO-CH-WARE

    [FIDONEWS]
    Dir=FIDO-FIDONEWS

    [INFOPACK]
    Dir=FIDO=INFOPACK
    ForceReplace=true

    You might need a links line also if you want to forward those files on to other nodes with tic's.

    [OPENXP]
    Dir=FIDO-OPENXP
    Links=1:234/567

    Ttyl :-),
    Al

    ... Ummm, Trouble with grammar have I, Yes! -Yoda-

    Okay, I addressed that particular error, but I think that's an indicator that something is amiss with your ctrl/sbbsecho.ini file. Take a look at that file and maybe compare with the expected format/contents that you find documented at http://wiki.synchro.net/config:sbbsecho.ini
