    SporkHack is a Nethack 3.4.3 variant, with many balancing changes.  If you'd like to see more information about it you can go to http://www.sporkhack.com/ and see what kinds of changes have been made.

    At the moment the d-pad isn't being accepted for movement keys, so you'll need to use vi keys to get around at the moment.  I'm going to investigate a few other options to improve the situation, so stay tuned!

    I'm starting to get a bit more pnd making 'fu, so I may go back to a few of the other releases I've put together and tweak things to make them better.

    I may also consider a graphical version of this, but I haven't been able to determine if all of the sprites are available to cover all of the new tile types.  Anyway... stay tuned if you're into SporkHack, and certainly feel free to include any feature requests or suggestions.

    Added an xmodmap hack to get the d-pad to work for movement.

    Gave it a spin. Liked it a lot. Survived about 15 minutes before something fell on my head...

    I liked the fact you have options like autocollect and a cat you can use to collect things for you.

    Definitively need a backlight to play this as it is keyboard intensive.

    Yeah... I would love a back-lit keyboard on the Pandora... Here is hoping for one on the Pyra!
