Bedter was renamed from Bedtris after legal threats from The Tetris Company!
The ultimate in tetris style games. With all the features that I wanted in a tetris game because I couldn’t find one I liked, so I wrote my own. Now at version 2.52. Bedter is freeware so download and distribute to all of your friends.
Most likely you will also need the Qt runtime libraries libqt.so.2.gz (2.6MB) and libqtintf.so.gz (440KB).
If you already have version 2.2.4 of these libraries (as libqt.so.2.2.4 and libqtintf.so.2.2.4) you can use these by creating symbolic links libqt.so.2 and libqtintf.so to point to the existing libraries, respectively.
Run “tar xzvf BedTer.tar.gz”. If you need to install the Qt runtimes do so to a common library path (ie /us/lib) and then run /sbin/ldconfig as root.
Bedter is fully customisable in regards to graphics and sound/music. Here are a few graphic resources for Bedter. Simply copy over the existing files. Remember to make a backup of the originals; but if you forget, the original Bedter resources are also here. If you have created Bedter resources feel free to send them to me and I’ll make them available here. Do not distribute the Bedter executable zip file with customised resources.
- original.zip – 55.2KB. The original theme including graphics, music and sounds.
- purple.zip – 55.4KB. A purple background with nicely shaded pieces (graphics only).
- contrast.zip – 9.1KB. A high contrast theme (piece graphics only).
- doom.zip – 298KB. Sounds based on the game Doom.
