From what I've read, different versions of Hermes require different headers in the externals, so that would explain compatibility issues among the different Hermes II versions.I just noticed this on my own local testing instance
I'm curious why so many of the externals/addons simply don't work at all - they either crash the BBS or the OS entirely. Presumably at some point they worked, so it's puzzling.
Agreed. I haven't tried running v3.1.1 in Basilisk II, but it looks like it may be possible with a USB to serial converter. There's a guide for setting up the emulator with a serial connection on a modern Windows PC here.3.1.1 does seem like the ideal version if running doors is the goal since it has the greatest compatibility. I'd love to be able to run this in Basilisk and have it accept incoming telnet connections but can't wrap my head around how to get that done. I guess I'd need a virtual serial modem in the host OS or something?
