Upgraded Screen Display
valkyre - February 03, 2010 03:58AM
 
While viewing other games, I noticed that some players have a better display, with solid walls, color coded inventory items, and wider screen displays.

Where can I found out more info on how to get this?

The solid walls are enabled by turning on either DECgraphics or IBMgraphics in your .nethackrc (I'm not sure exactly what the differences are between the two).

Color-coded inventories come from taking advantage of the menucolors patch installed on NAO's build of NetHack. You can view other players' .nethackrc files for some ideas of how to use this.

I don't know how to get NetHack to use a wider screen. I think there might be a vanilla .nethackrc option for this, but I can't find it in the Guidebook.

DECgraphics option worked through the Java Client. Is QT avaialable for Windows?
