I played a game called Gear Head a while ago. I don't remember much about it, but I remember liking the concept a lot. You were a mecha pilot guy and after stocking up on space suits, space rations, guns, boomerangs, knives, etc you would get in your mecha thing and fly off to space stations and asteroids and planets, and dismount and go through these "dungeons".

I remember hating the extremely complex controls, especially in regards to piloting the mechas. But I enjoyed the idea of guns, aliens, randomly generated missions, piloting vehicles, etc. What other modern or sci fi roguelikes are out there? Preferably ones that really pull it off well, not just act like Angband but the swords are renamed "light sabers", the plate mail is renamed "powered armor", and the crossbows are renamed "blasters".

Classic Roguelikes / Help with an error please. (Oangband)

I was blinded, and while blind proceeded to flail around and blindly kill a swarm of enemies nearby. Then while stumbling around blind I got the message "you feel copper under your feet" or something. Wanting to pick up the money, I pressed g and it said "You have copper (b)".

For some reason it put the money in my inventory instead of in my AU!

So I've been playing for the last few hours with this wasted inventory slot. I can't drop it, sell it, destroy it. Enemies that steal or destroy inventory don't steal or destroy the copper. For all intents and purposes it shouldn't be there, the game doesn't know what to do with it, and there's no way to interact with it. It's just taking up space. Frankly I'm surprised it's not causing crashes.

Does anybody know how I can edit my character file to delete the copper from my inventory? And would doing so make me a "cheater"? For a "real win" should I just bear with the bug and keep trekking?
