Life’s too good and I find myself playing nethack again. First I tried looking for it in my FreeBSD VM, I thought they used to distribute it in the default installation… nevermind I found Rogue and was playing it for a while. Then I went to download the windows version of nethack so I can play it without having to fire up VMWare.
I’m now using the IBMGraphics option, which looks pretty darn good! I’ve also managed to get PuTTy to display the IBM line drawing characters properly by going to the “Translation” item, select “CP437″ under Character set translation and select “Use font in both ANSI and OEM modes”. Also, I needed to use “Courier New” or “Lucida Console” fonts with the “Central European” script to make it look right.
