Forum:My consistent obnoxous way to die

From NetHackWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Forever, every so often I'll get killed because I'm not constantly monitoring the bottom line of the status box at the bottom.

Great character/game, suddenly is fainting and dying.

Just lost another days worth of play over something pretty stupid. As in the game being stupid, not that I don't get myself killed off doing something I'll admit was stupid.

I'm guessing that it should be easily possible to have the game respond with a pause with the change in status there, similar to how one will quit eating when something comes into view, or a character goes from being confused to not being confused.

Some versions of NetHack have the MSGTYPE patch applied, where you can edit the configuration so that messages like "You faint from lack of food." force a --More-- prompt. --Bluescreenofdeath (talk) 06:07, 19 June 2017 (UTC)
