Here is a port of the popular game Frozen Bubble, written by
Guillaume Cottenceau et al in perl using the SDL_perl extention.

See http://www.frozen-bubble.org for more info.

This port is for amigaos4 and requires perl perl 5.8.5 (4th amiga os4
release with dynamic loading and POSIX extention). It will not work with any
earlier version of perl for amigaos4. It incorporates a  special build of
SDL_perl which combines the SDL_perl with the fb_c_stuff modules.
(This gets arround a problem where the two need to interact on a level my
 current dynamic loading implementatuion doesn't allow), [please note if you
want SDL_perl for something else, please wait for a short while, don't
use this version....]

This port stores all it configs (.fbrc .fblevels etc) in bubbles: 
(or /bubbles in unix parlance). The provided start script "fb" sets up and 
removes the assign for you. If you wish to run from the command line "by hand"
you will need to add it your self.


o relink against older SDL, music and sound problems fixed.

o increased sound buffer size to 4096 as recomended by toaks.

o found a few more instances of $ENV{HOME} replaced them with /bubbles.

o added a timidity config to stop SDL from looking for it in /usr/local/lib
I suspect though that it's not actually used.

These changes should get most of the glitches people were getting.


Just unpack to the destination of your choice.

To run:

Click on the icon or....

make an assign bubbles: to the directory where you unpacked the game.
start abc-shell
cd /bubbles

launch perl as follows

perl -I blib/lib -I blib/arch frozen-bubble <any frozen bubble options>

Known bugs:

Fullscreen mode does not work.

Have fun
