*** About ScuzzBall *** ScuzzBall is a DOS game that Nathan Banks started during a Grade 11 maths class when it got too boring. He wanted to play JezzBall on an old Toshiba T1000 XT laptop. He contintued to work on the game over the following years before abandoning it when the market for DOS shareware games disappeared. At the end of the project, Nathan had written about 25000 lines of Pascal and Assembler code for the three projects. The game expanded from ScuzzBall into a Nibbles and Checkers game which are included as part of this package. *** ScuzzBall Videos *** You can check out http://youtube.com/user/scuzzbal/videos *** Installation *** The following are the instructions for installing scuzzball on a Debian/Ubuntu system. The Dosbox commands should work in any operating systems. 1. Install DOSBOX: sudo apt-get install dosbox 2. Create a directory for your dos programs. DOS=~/dos mkdir $DOS 3. Download the self-extracting executables for scuzzball. You may download the executables, or install from source: For the executables: cd $DOS wget http://bnathan.com/scuzzball/scuzz.exe wget http://bnathan.com/scuzzball/nibbles.exe wget http://bnathan.com/scuzzball/checkers.exe To compile, you will need a copy of Borland Turbo Pascal 7.0 for DOS. If you google "Turbo Pascal", you may come across a copy. After getting it, you will want to clone the ScuzzBall repository: cd $DOS git clone https://github.com/nbanks/scuzzball.git scuzzbal 4. Start dosbox, mount your directory, and extract the files. First, start dosbox and mount your dos directory dosbox mount c ~/dos c: Hint: Press control-F12 a few times to increase the processor speed slightly. Hint: Press Alt-Enter to enter full-screen mode. To Install from executables, use: scuzz.exe nibbles.exe checkers.exe To Install from source, first add turbo pascal to the path: set PATH=%PATH%;\TP\BIN Next compile each of the programs: cd scuzzbal\scuzzbal tpc -B scuzzbal cd ..\checkers tpc -B checkers cd ..\nibbles tpc -B nibbles 5. Play the games! I find ScuzzBall and nibbles most fun. dir cd Scuzzbal scuzzbal cd \nibbles nibbles cd \checkers checkers (For nibbles, I usually use a speed of 256.)
