To compile and run this game, go into the directory src, edit the file "tms.h" according to the comments that are contained in, and use make.
More specifically, it needs a certain lib directory, where all of the files in "lib" are stored. /usr/local/lib/tms is reccommended. Once you have created that directory and moved all of the files to it (be sure that book8.txt is writeable by everybody -- it is more or less the high score file), set LIB_DIR in tms.h to that directory, with a trailing slash -- ie. change appropriate line to say.
#define LIB_DIR "/usr/local/lib/tms/"
(or whatever you have put for your lib directory.)
Security note: It is strongly discouraged to install TMS as a SetUID binary; the game is not designed to have special priveleges.
