Door Games with Active Registrations Available

Believe it or not, there are still people out there supporting and providing registration keys. Some are pay, some are free. It's nice to see the support is still out there.

I would love to add more games to this list. If you know of someone still offering keys please email be, link is above, and I'll add them to the list.

BigWins Lotto

BigWins Lotto is a lottery-style game door which will allow your callers the chance to win SysOp-definable prizes in three seperate games. Online time is awarded for matching every number except one -- called the "NearMatch" prize -- in all games. When a caller is awarded a prize, the caller's name and prize won are logged to a file that you specify.

TradeWars is the classic space trader game originally released in the late 1980s for Bulletin Board Systems. For 25 years, it has been actively played by a devoted community of gameops and players. It is a seminal game, credited as an early inspiration by many of today’s game developers.

TWGS is a stand-alone server and game management application. It is the simplest and most flexible way to host classic TradeWars on the Internet today.

I do not know if they are giving registration codes for the original door game version. There seems to be an issue with the game server running under Windows10. Windows deletes the active game from time to time, as if it's a virus or something. Rumor has it they are working on a fix for this issue.
