Magma. It isn't really dwarfy unless you add magma.

comment Nethack is failing to load due to a dungeon faliure in nhdat file
I was about to say, regardless of what the dev team claim, Nethack vanilla is pretty much dead. He'd be better off going with UnNethack or Nethack4

Have you edited your nhdat file, and is that the directory that you are running the game from?

comment Can I stop Nethack from generating or loading bones files on Linux?
BONESDIR is an option on windows, along with HACKDIR, LEVELDIR, SAVEDIR, LOCKDIR, and TROUBLEDIR. Is this not the case on *nix? It can be done with a script, though doing it properly would be a bit of a pain.

comment Is there any way I can rename my soldiers?
@RavenDreamer There are lots of unoffical patches however; today we'd call them mods. I don't know of this one though.

murgatroid99: My *nix is rusty, but couldn't you give the script write permissions for that folder via sudo or root, but run it as a lower-level user? Or, more easily, edit your .nethackrc to move the bones folder to say, /dev/null or at least somewhere you have write permission? It doesn't have to stay with the rest of your nethack stuff.

Wouldn't it be easier just to run a script that deletes all the bones level files after each time you run nethack?

comment How do I play the piano in the Steam version of FFVII?
Also as a note, those are the 1998 version controls, the Steam version redid them all for some reason.
