I have installed and compiled the codebase on my local machine and that went without a single hitch! Thank you for the easy time there gang!
I was finally able to telnet into the game (once I figured out that I shouldn't use a colon between the server and port... DUH!)
Now that I have created a real admin character (apart from the default Admin) and used "Advance" to get him to lev 100 then "Immortalize" to get him to lev 101 I need to "Promote" him to lev 115 so I can delete the Admin char. When I try to do this it tells me that the char I am trying to promote doesn't have an email address. How do I add an email address to my imm's information? I can't seem to find a command to do that anywhere.
