    NDS NetHack DS V1.5 Released

    News/release from Abcd1234:

    Welcome to the home page for my port of NetHack to the Nintendo DS. The goal of this project is to create a port of NetHack for the DS utilizing the unique features of the DS to create an easy-to-use NetHacking experience. I think I've succeeded in that goal. I'm probably wrong.

    Features
    An unscaled, scrolling map view on the lower screen, which can be interacted with using the touchscreen.
    Minimap, message, and status information rendered to the top screen.
    Support for 16- and 256-color BMP tilesets, including non-rectangular tiles (tiles must have dimensions which are a multiple of 8, e.g. 8x8, 8x16, etc).
    Support for text mode, with optional full color and IBM graphics.
    Popup command window for easy access to the full command set.
    On-screen keyboard for text input and extended commands.
    Keys are almost completely configurable.
    Support for both left- and right-handed modes.
    Save and restore.
    Sleep mode.
    News
    Well, version 1.5 is now out, supporting text mode, complete with IBM graphics and full colour (both of which are, of course, optional)! To upgrade, just unzip the new archive straight over the old installation. As for enabling text mode, simply edit NetHack/defaults.nh, and comment out the OPTION line defining the tile settings. Feel free to remove the 'ibmgraphics' or 'color' options, if you like things a little more plain.

    Awesome... I've never played NetHack before. Although, being a Rougelike fan, this should be a good experience...

    Whoa, that's alot of commands... Sweet.

    1.6 is out:

    * Makes the arrows tappable in the menus.
    * Adds OK/Cancel buttons to menus and text windows (they're ugly as heck, but they work).
    * Adds a "cursor" in text mode, which highlights the hero's position in reverse video.
