When I complained loudly on rec.games.roguelike.nethack about a game lost by quaffing from a fountain with Caps Lock on, David Damerell wrote The Paranoia Patch. If you apply this patch to a vanilla 3.2.2 source tree, it alters the game such that you can specify "paranoid_quit" in your options. Quitting and entering Explore mode then asks you to type "yes", not just the letter "y". The Paranoia Patch is also ported to NetHack 3.3.0, although quitting now is done with other keys. Additionally, the sources for SLASH'EM (a ZIPfile for the DOS source and a .tar.gz of the source tweaked for Linux compiles) are mirrored here. |
