Vanilla NetHack 3.4.3 Binaries (Terminal Port) for OSX Lion

Since I had to test something on a pure TTY vanilla NetHack anyway, and as always it took me a while to figure all the minimal patches out, I decided to upload the result to github. Then I realized that OSX Lion users are no longer able to download the official NetHack Mac binaries due to lack of Rosetta, so made the whole thing into a binary distribution as well.

It’s a single-player dist that you have to extract directly into your home folder, so you’ll get ~/NetHack as a result. If you want to relocate the installation you have to do so manually (think setting HACKDIR or editing the main script).

Please let me know if you run into any trouble.

Happy hacking!

    Hey, thank you so much for doing this! One problem: the control scheme seems to be screwing up for me; all the arrow keys open my armor and the num keys open a “count” prompt.

    Any guesses when we’ll see a tiles port for Lion? Right now I’m playing via a dos emulator, but it eats a lot of CPU and cranks my temp and my fan pretty high.

    Thanks.
