Many thanks...

I'm not sure why you got those messages - especially it looks like the makefile deletes the .\BBS_objs directory first :(

Yep - There were a couple of build warnings in the log about variables not being used... But I've reviewed that code this evening and everything seems good. It seems that Borland doesn't like some of our nop code.

So other than that - the log looks good to me!

Many thanks for your bug report and helping us fix the makefile - sorry it took a little longer than it should but unfortunately I'm not a Borland user anymore - I've moved to MSVC v1.0 back in '93 and haven't looked back since :(

Kind Regards
