My xterm colours

Hello!

Below are the xterm colours I use with nethack. I spent a bit of time developing & testing them and decided to share... please give me some feedback. :)

Side note: to remember grey vs. gray - (e)nglish, (a)merican.

  • copy & paste the code to the end of your .Xresources file
  • run 'xrdb .Xresources' (you may see override messages if your file already has any of these lines)
  • reload xterm
  • play nethack (with OPTIONS=use_darkgray in your rc file, if playing on NAO)
#define NETHACK 
#ifdef NETHACK
/* In nethack, CLR_BLACK & NO_COLOR = color8, and CLR_GRAY = foreground; */
/* colorBD is used but color7 is not - they are made equal here to balance */
/* the greys, ie, 3 greys instead of 4 makes them more distinct. */
