This server provides a variant of the popular nethack roguelike game which is relatively close to the original vanilla nethack. Some level variants, user interface enhancements, and level generator algorithms have been added, but there are no substantial changes compared to vanilla (if you can ascend in vanilla, you can here, too, and vice versa).
To connect and play, open a terminal and type telnet feorar.org
. On windows, use PuTTY
In order to profit from the additional patches which are installed on this server, you need to configure them. See below for an example config file. You can just copy the text it contains, and paste it into the "Edit config file" editor (copy it, enter the editor, press i, shift+ins, esc, :wq Enter).
