Forum:Nethack Android Mobile: Change Colors

From NetHackWiki
Jump to: navigation, search


I'm playing nethack on my android tablet using the ASCII tileset with color. The problem is that I cannot see (well barely) the brown color which is used for doors and various monsters.

In the past, I have been able to set custom colors using the options file. However, when I edit my options file, I keep getting "Bad Syntax in OPTIONS".

I've tried:

OPTIONS=VIDEOCOLORS:4-2-6-1-5-3-15-12-10-14-9-13-11

Where 6 is the one I want to change.

I've also tried:

OPTIONS=VIDEOCOLORS:red, green, brown, etc.

But this also generates errors. Tried putting them in quotes as well.

Anyone have any ideas?

Also, trying:

MONSTERCOLOR=floating eye:cyan

generates an error as well. Anyone know anything about these?

Thanks in advance. --Preceding unsigned comment added by 50.197.199.22 (talkcontribs) 22:16, 25 July 2013‎

Could you point us to the application you're using? There is no official version of NetHack for Android, though I've heard there are multiple ports by other people. —bcode talk | mail 22:27, 25 July 2013 (UTC)
