Display Format

Hello, I'm using SyncTerm as my terminal however, all the text appears to be distorted throughout making it difficult to play. Anyone else having similar issues?

I've had this problem before... I believe that it's because of the ASCII implementations in modern telnet clients verses the classic implementation (unconfirmed). mTelnet works best for me in Stabs, while Syncterm worked decently but had no scrollback whatsoever. Putty distorted all the graphics to text which really annoyed me. Kevterm (a simple telnet client circa 2002) works great at Nuklear, but sucked at other places.

I just keep mTelnet and Kevterm installed and use those.

Putty works find if you specify the correct font. I imagine other problems can be made to specify the right font too. Don't remember which works though.
If your intended destination is suddenly vaporized, consider pulling over and watching the cool light show.
