I am adding some sysop tutorials for using both v1 and v2. I am looking for suggestions about what you want to see....

Please post a tutorial suggestion or two in this thread and lets see what we can come up with.

Not sure if you're serious, but I'd like to see a tutorial on how to setup windows standard edition 2008, to use twgs (v1).

I am serious but I was thinking more of importing/exporting TWA files or TWGS configuration. But installing TWGS v1 on MS Server 2008 is easy. I do want to say that Server 2008 is overkill, it will run just as well on Windows XP sp3 Professional or Ultimate.

The installation directory must be in the root of 'C:' Like Windows 7 it raises holy hell if you install it in \Program Files\ for a 32bit system or \Program Files (x86)\ for a 64bit system

I set it up in C:\TW2002\TWGS

Don't try to use the service, just start it and stop it like a program.

Note: All windows desktop operating systems after Windows XP have a 10 user connection limit, so you have to use server edition if you want a newer OS without the connection limit.

Do not try and bend the spoon. That’s impossible.
Instead… only try to realize there is no spoon.

I was certainly thinking about technical 'Server' details (ie the service mentioned), but I would rlly like to know about security issues, if any. etc.

Those are actually login connections. Not TCP/IP connections. I just looked at my winxpsp3 running twgs and it only allows 10 connections but I have a bunch of established connections for tcp/ip (11 for the twgs by itself. The MS Telenet server alone can handle between 2 connections (the default) up to any number less than 10million (in Windows 7)

Could use something like this..

For example, Im not sure the best was to edit a .twa. I assume the only way is to load it in twgs and edit from there? Do I "big bang" before? When do I export the game for future bangs without having to reEdit the twa?

Muss thats what I do. I load it into the twgs, then make all of the changes I need to make. Then I export it with a new name and just load the changed version from then on. The exceptions are players (I have to make a new observer after each bang) and the alien planets (I edit the ones in subzero once the game is active.

So basically it's up to whoever imports it to get it right. It may not even be the same edit if things aren't done right. That's another bug in v2.
