Proxima Centauri Blacknova Traders game online...

Being new to Blacknova Traders, I set it up using all the defaults. I ran a BBS back in the '90's running TW2002 and loved playing the game. I recently got a new version of the BBS up and running and will be adding TW2002 to it soon. In the meantime, please check out the Blacknova Traders game and let me know what tweaks I should make to make it more fun!

Thanks!

You haven't correctly setup BNT on your server, the cron updates are either not setup or are set incorrectly.

I just check a few mins ago and it seems that your game hasn't had any updates for 6days, 12hours, 52mins and 20seconds.

So that is leading me to either an error in the code or you haven't read the install file in the docs folder and setup cron right.
I am leaning to the second.

I followed the instructions in the docs to setup the cron job and it appeared to work for a short time, but doesn't appear to be working anymore. Any ideas what to look at to determine the cause?

Ok, what values did you put into cron, basically what is set up to the --dump part.

So */6 * * * * /usr/bin/lynx --dump ...

would call the scheduler every 6 mins.

Also sched_ticks in the config file will also need to match that number, so for updates every 6 mins your will need to set sched_ticks = 6;

So your cron looks like it is set, but your config doesn't match cron.
