I put on here the list of adjustments that I usually make when playing nethack. I'm sure there are other useful ones I haven't thought of, and would love to see what other people use. Also, I'm sure there is more information about the adjusting command that I do not know. --Tetrakatus 14:58, 26 February 2007 (UTC)

I'd still consider the letter usage very subjective and unless there's some really good excuses, (eg. the dangers of using 'y') I see no point to list those here. Everyone has their own preferred layouts which work. --Preceding unsigned comment added by Progo (talkcontribs) 27 February 2007
I agree that the justifications provided in the article were a bit flimsy and that these are subjective decisions. Rather than cutting it, I added some of the the various strategies I've seen used (and left Tetrakatus's 'Y' as a visual Mnemonic for stethoscope, which I'd never seen used). By providing several options, we avoid appearing to endorse one strategy while still offering some starting points for players looking to develop their strategy.

It appears that the player is only able to adjust his inventory, and not spells or (in SLASH'EM) his special techniques. Am I correct in assuming that short of patching the game, the player must simply live with no spell adjustment? In SLASH'EM I suppose you could quaff potions of amnesia to forget your spells and then re-read them. Thoughts? - AileTheAlien 00:04, 12 February 2011 (UTC)

Use + for spells. Techniques are always the same, but you shouldn't ever have more than a page of them anyways.-- Qazmlpok 00:30, 12 February 2011 (UTC)
