drug-dealing game set in streets of New York City
UNIX rewrite of the MS-DOS program of the same name, which in turn was
inspired by John E. Dell's "Drug Wars" game. You have one month to buy and
sell drugs on the streets of New York, the aim being first to pay off your
debt to the loan shark and then to make a fortune. And if you have to shoot
a few cops in the process, well... The game includes TCP networking allowing
you to meet (and shoot) other human drug dealers.
In order to have sound effects in Dopewars, you must have the Enlightened Sound Daemon
("esound package) installed and running.
GNOME users can have the daemon automatically started when they log in (see the relevant
option in the GNOME control panel under "Sound").
Alternatively, running the "esd" command before starting dopewars should also work.

This is dopewars 1.5.12, a game simulating the life of a drug dealer in
New York. The aim of the game is to make lots and lots of money...
unfortunately, you start the game with a hefty debt, accumulating interest,
and the cops take a rather dim view of drug dealing...
These are brief instructions; see the HTML documentation for full information.
