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!

NetHack Mac OS X (cocoa) released

Get the latest dist here:
NetHack Mac OS X

The source code has been moved to github:
NetHack Mac OS X

I fixed the “forced wizard mode” and XP and turn indicator should now be visible at all times. I also changed the whole source layout to a more NetHack-like one (including the fact that you have have to bootstrap it). There were tags mishaps (0.3 and 0.2 are merely approximate) but anything else went ok.

Please input any issues you find at the known location.

Have fun!
