Forum:Issues involving 16x16 tiles

From NetHackWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

I'm using Mac OS X 10.4. I installed the 16x16 tile version of Nethack, but two issues have arisen:

1. The window is far too large. The only way to get it to fit is to shrink it, but it puts me at a disadvantage because I have to constantly scroll to see what's around the level. I guess it's not a big problem, but it is kind of a pain in the butt.

2. When I save, no matter what the name of my character really is, the name reverts to the my Macintosh username, firstname.lastname, instead of whatever I named the character initially.

I haven't been able to find any places to get help for Nethack, since I don't use USENET. I tried finding the source files, but all I seem to have is Nethack Defaults.txt floating aimlessly in my Preferences.

Does anyone have any advice?

I'm using default tiles on OS X 10.5 /Macbook. 1) The game window always fits on my screen horizontally, but not vertically. 2) Saves always revert my character to "Tjr" (not 502Tjr), no matter what I start with. I know of no solution, but I can see your problem. -Tjr 02:39, 23 May 2009 (UTC)
