I finally get a good character going, and NetHackCocoa decides to crash on me and then show this lovely little message whenever I try to restart:
Naturally I click 'No' and then attempt to find the nethack recover application that I've heard so much about.
However, to my surprise I can't seem to find it anywhere. I've looked in the NetHackCocoa.app package and in my ~/Library/NetHackCocoa directory. I made a complete backup of that area...as much as I wanted to avoid save-scumming I think that recovering from a crash doesn't count :/.
Anyway, in my ~/Library/NetHackCocoa are a bunch of files with my username and various numbers appended, followed by a bones level, logfile, paniclog, perm_lock, and record files. Also an empty save/ directory.
I've seen other people who have tried recovering say that the game is thinking they're cheating...so I'd like to avoid that if possible...
Attempted to use the tty version of recover, met with the following error as well:
Cannot open level 0 for (uid)(username)
