The official Image 2.0 development BBS, and main support site. Running actual hardware, this BBS runs on a C128 in 64 Mode, Hyperdrive, Thunderdrive, FD-4K, & GLINK-LT.
Push the boundaries with 13th Floor's signature look and feel, with integrated C-Net DS2 networking and custom DOORS files. This BBS runs on WinVICE v3.2 (all virtual)
Before the restoration process began, this was the first and ONLY system running Image BBS v2.0
Running on actual C128 hardware, this BBS features Commodore , SD2IEC x2, 38400bps, and the testing site for online games conversion from v1.2
A BBS (or Bulletin Board System) is a private online dial-up service run on a single home computer. If someone wished to access a BBS, they would load into their computer a text-based "terminal" program, with which they could dial and connect to the BBS via their modem. Once online, the user could read online message, send and receive email, play online games, chat with the BBS owner, and download programs from transfer areas.
Well, before the internet was the thing, BBSs were. And in their hey-day (which I guestimate is roughly between 1984 and 1993) Commodore BBSs were the best. We had color graphics, they didn't. We had online graphic movies, they didn't. Our BBS programs were better written, provided better services to the SysOp and the user, and were just plain more powerful then anything the PC and Apple folks were hurling out.

This website was lazily thrown together by Hoy Brothers of 13th Floor BBS. We needed a place to show the working product with the world in hopes that it would spark up interest in the new, and nostalgia in the ... not so new. For updates and official releases, please connect to Image 2.0 HQ directly and set up an account. Be sure to tell X-Tec "Hoy sent me!"Hoy Brothers
