Description: Graphical version of NetHack and SlashEm

Website

Other:

Installed Vulture's Claw via the downloadable Windows installer on my USB drive. Here are the results:

  • The Windows Installer creates a folder with 4 links in the startmenu and a desktop link. All other files are extracted to installation directory.
  • Don't know if it writes anything to registry, but it seems not to (installing user had no rights to edit registry).
  • Packed all contents to a .7z, uninstalled program, unpacked .7z, tried to run: it worked.
  • After quitting it creates two files called "logfile" and "record" in installation directory.
  • I've got no idea though, where it saves it's configurations. Files in /config were not touched after I changed some options.

Portable NetHack is already done.

Thank you.

Vulture's eye and vulture's

Vulture's eye and vulture's claw dont work on my computer, whereas nethack does. also, Rob Loach re-organised his site at one point so the link is dead.

But there’s no sense crying over every mistake,
You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

- Vulture's Eye saves

- Vulture's Eye saves savegame-files under a name like [login]-[charactername].NetHack-saved-game, where [login] is the name of the Windows user account the game was started under and [charactername] is the name the player named his character with. I don't know whether this naming scheme affects the continuation of saved games on other machines or accounts than those the game was started with.

- Tried to make Vulture's

- Tried to make Vulture's Claw portable (installing, zipping, uninstalling, unzipping), but doesn't work.

from experience, i know that Nethack leaves a reg key or two in HKCU\Software\Nethack . plus, its settings are saved in some files like defaults.nh

Nethack entry in registry

I searched for "Nethack" in regedit, didn't found any results.
