I find nethack cocoa works with MACos Mountain Lion. I would like to change default options before I start a character. I use to do this but have forgotten and the OS has changed too.

What version are you running? The standalone (downloaded from the web) or from the app store? – Halfwarr Mar 29 '13 at 18:21

I don't have the Cocoa port handy, but if you can find the nethack.nh file you can set default configuration options.
