Traditional Roguelikes (Turn Based) / UnNetHack 4.0.0 released
« on: April 03, 2012, 08:29:05 AM »
Announcing the 4.0.0 release of UnNetHack.

Source code, Debian package and Windows TTY and GUI executables can be downloaded here:

The default Windows defaults.nh has been improved with better coloring options.

Finally it’s possible to complete the quest even if you angered your Quest leader. Killing him or her will automatically unlock the stairs leading to the lower Quest levels.

This release has dragons a bit as a special focus.

Although it does not yet contain the overhaul of the randomization of dragons, it contains a complete new 4 level branch full of dragons with the exciting possibility of fighting chromatic dragons (generic dragons having most of the features of the Chromatic Dragon called Tiamat) at the end of the branch, thus also to gain chromatic dragon armor which will grant most resistances when worn.

The AC of dragon armor has been significantly reduced. Dragon scales provide now 1 point and dragon scale mails 5 points of AC.

The newly added wax golems, providing candles as death drop, will hopefully fix the candle shortage that plagued many vanilla games.

The detailed changelog can be read on the development blog.

Traditional Roguelikes (Turn Based) / UnNetHack 3.6.1 released
« on: February 06, 2012, 04:42:07 PM »
Hi, there. It's a pleasure for me to announce the 3.6.1 release of UnNetHack.

Source code, Debian package and Windows TTY and GUI executables can be
downloaded here:

The Windows version has now a Console and GUI executable included and
HTML dumps enabled.

The most prominent gameplay improvement is probably the removal of utter
destruction effect of a bag of holding explosion (originally from
SporkHack). Instead of destroying the complete content of the bag of
holding its content gets scattered around. Of course there's still the
possibility that something breaks when it hits the floor.   ;)

This release is save and bones compatible with 3.6.0.

Screenshots of the the Linux terminal and Windows GUI versions:

Off-topic (Locked) / NetHack Poll 2009
« on: November 11, 2009, 12:27:17 PM »
Hi there!

After the big success of the Crawl poll in August (the results can be downloaded from and in loose cooperation with the Crawl developers responsible for that poll, we present you the "NetHack Poll 2009".

The intention of this poll is to gather some information about NetHack players, both currently active and past players for helping us variants developers with design decisions and to get a small insight into the NetHack community as a whole.

Even if you no longer play NetHack regularly, please take part in this poll. Most questions make sense also for former players and one question asks explicitly why you no longer play NetHack.

This poll will run through the month of November. Afterwards the results will be released to the public and a pointer will be posted here.

Please spread the word about this poll to other NetHack playing people you know.

You can either directly reply to this as mail and send it to

Or post it in here.

Or fill out the online form on

Many thanks,
Patric Mueller (lead developer of NetHack-De and UnNetHack)
