Kindly visit using a capable terminal such as Syncterm(recommended and free!) or Netrunner. Windows default telnet, mTelnet, etc are NOT supported and will give you errors and mangle the artwork. This board offers an optional Classic Mode for Amiga and retro terminals that disables the unique animation system and affects some text placement as well. Our new user process is needlessly excessive and is about to undergo an overhaul. For now power through it- it’s worth it!
