How to play it on PuTTy?
antoniodamala - December 25, 2011 02:06PM
 
It's my first time playing nethack online, and I don't have a clue of how to make it work. I've wandered a little on the internet but nothing is quite clear of what should i do.

This is an older post, but for others trying to figure it out:

In PuTTY, put "nethack.alt.org" in the hostname, type "Telnet". (Port: 23)

Type "NAO" in the Saved Sessions box, and hit Save.

Go to the Terminal..Keyboard pane and choose the NetHack numpad setting.

Switch back to the Session pane and hit Save again.

On the Window pane, set your screen size. 80x24 is the default. Also set "Change the size of the font" so that the display doesn't get borked if you resize.

If you copy my config file, you can try other settings like 80x34 or 110x34 and get the "cursesgraphics" interface.

enjoy,

First time on nethack.alt.org..... silly question....I can play fine with the Flash client, I set up a username and everything. But I thought I might like to try it with putty since that's what I use for the tournament. I can't seem to login in though! When I try the rphoffm username and password that I set up in the flash client, it just says access denied...any ideas?
