Looking for RIPTerm

Postby Kiteless » 2019-7-04 @ 21:28

Hey all I have scoured the web looking for RIPTerm for my WiModem232 adventures but haven't been able to find a copy of it anywhere. If I could pay the person/company that made it for a license I would do it in a heartbeat. Anyway, anyone have some kind of registered copy available? I figure this is a long shot but worth a try here. Thanks all!

It took me a while to find the (unregistered) version as well. I was surprised that this once ubiquitous terminal, available in the downloads section of just about any BBS, had rather completely vanished into the annals of computing history.

TeleGrafix is long gone, and AFAIK, nobody took up the mantle of licensing an encoding scheme that doesn't make much technical sense anymore. I can send you the unreg'd archive if you want it. Apologies, but even if I had a registered version, forum regs would prevent sharing it. About all you can do is stick to the shareware version, or keep trying your luck out there in the Ether.

Unfortunately RipTorn just recently passed away.

Yeah I was so surprised it became so hard to find. And make sense on forum rules. I respect that. But thanks for the reply anyway. Cheers!

Honestly even the shareware version has been impossible to find up to this point. So thank you so much for this!
