I don't know about this game "Greed", searching did not find much either,...https://packages.debian.org/jessie/greed

Bug in the Debian game Greed
Well, let me do this simpler... Some times I like playing with a terminal game called Greed,
That does simplify it some what,... also a note, on the link above,
It would be better to start here: https://packages.debian.org/sid/games-puzzle
Package: games-puzzle (1.6)
Do you have the entire "games-puzzle" package ?
Looking at the above link, it shows 'games-tasks' is a dependency,
do you have that installed ?
dep: games-tasks (= 1.6)
Debian Games tasks for tasksel
And further down, the link to the
"greed" game, it is a reccomended addition to the game package,....https://packages.debian.org/jessie/greed
Make sure you have all the dependencies,....
There is more information, but:https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/pkgreport.cgi?pkg=greed;dist=stable
No bug, like what you describe has been reported, the only one is a
"wishlist" request for menus, and icons,.... But it might give you sort of
a idea as to how to also submit a report,...also there are contact addresses
for the maintainers of the game,...
Package: greed (3.10-1)
curses-based clone of the DOS free-ware game Greed
This is a curses-based clone of the DOS free-ware game Greed. The goal of this game is to try to eat as much as possible of the board before munching yourself into a corner
Now that I am thinking about it, I kind of think I vaquely remember this game,
on Dos,...but never really liked it much, my favorite is MS PacMan,... but any way,
you might be better off trying to find the original game, and run it on Dosbox,....
that is what I do for my "Pacman game",.... I have been trying for years now,
to make a good clone, that runs directly on Linux, and Debian, but not much luck,
and there are some "clones", actually many, but none of them really work well, there
all ways seems to be "bugs",.....and none of them are like the original,...
Even if I downloaded the "source" for greed, unless you are using Debian 7 or 6,
what ever I found , if anything, would not do you any good,...besides that, when ever
I have the time, I am busy trying to get my "pacman game"
working better on my system,... but "games are fun to play around with", trying
to get them working better is part of the game, I think,... Actually now that I am
remebering more,...it seems to me like I used some of the code, in a qbasic version
of "greed", to help me work out some qbasic code for a qbasic version of "pacman",...
if you know the game, when you do a wrong move a line of characters disappears without reason because the bug
this sounds like a very familiar , problem,..."the bug" also kept eating my dots,
uncontrollably,.... Try not to make any "WRONG MOVES" !
I think that was part of why I did not like the game very much,...it was to hard,
I just don't know any more, it was all so long ago.
===== Note: =====
Downloaded the game,
- Code: Select all
There you go,.... there also might be some clues in the manual,...just now
started to look at it,....
I do remember this game, it sucks, no point in it, and besides that it "locks up"
a lot,...I don't know if it is a intententional part of the game, or a bug,...or both,...
but even way back when it was a Dos game, it was the same thing, ....
Take note, what it says at the bottom of the manual :
This really ought to be an X game, but that would have been too
much like work.
I don't think anyone will be very interested in trying to solve this other "bug",...
The game seems "buggy" but it also seems to me like it all ways was this way,...
and well, a "clone" is a "clone".
