OPTIONS=name:Bucket,catname:Tequilla,dogname:Beowulf,horsename:MrEd OPTIONS=color,hilite_pet,lit_corridor OPTIONS=help,!news,mail,silent,time OPTIONS=showexp,showrace,showweight,showdmg OPTIONS=pickup_types:$ TILES=name:Small tiles,file:x11tiles TILES=name:Big tiles,file:x11bigtiles,transparent TILES=name:Big 3D tiles,file:x11big3dtiles,transparent,pseudo3D OPTIONS=tiles:Small tiles

Be sure to "source ~/.bashrc" after saving. Most of this info was copied from here .
