Door Specific Instructions

Usurper is pretty easy. You just need to pass path to the dropfile on the command line like above and it's easy.

Edit USURP.CTL in Usurper directory and make sure the following are set correctly. Also, check everything else while you're in there.

BBSTYPE DORINFO1
;
;
; Uncomment the next line if you use a fossil device driver and wish to have
; the door initialize your fossil to the locked/baud speed rate.
FOSSIL

Usurper natively on Linux note: For Usurper 0.24 or higher (e.g. git development code), you may need to specify BBSTYPE as DOOR32, but newer development code automatically detects the presence of Linux, and the USURP.CTL file can be empty but should still be present in order to suppress a warning message about a missing USURP.CTL file.
