Your character is a full 8-dot Braille cell, and other humanoids are as well. Once you've picked out your person, you'll see a map of the room you're in. Vertical walls are ls, horizontal dashes, and so on. The corners are also shown. If you want to know what an object is, type slash, answer yes, (or no if you want to type in symbols instead,) and click on the symbol in question. As NetHack is a seriously complex game, there are many to learn, mostly monsters, books and scrolls, and so on. Then hit space when you're done. To move around, you can either activate PC cursor and use the arrows, click where you want to go, or type numbers as they would appear on the numpad--2 for down, 9 for up and right, and so on. You'll also want to review the commands, especially useful are k for kick, (which is how you break through doors,) M for moving as far as you can in any given direction, and others. If you are getting errors about not finding the sounds, make sure the correct directory is specified--hard disk instead of storage card if that's where the game is. The top of the screen shows your stats, and the bottom shows any messages, so check both often. As you move around, you uncover more rooms that were at first unmapped, and a magic mapping scroll reveals the entire level.

Hi

Net hack is an aski text adventure, which means everything about what's going on is represented by aski graphics, ---- your character and the dungeon around them.

Your character is the at sign, monsters and other objects are letters, the floor I believe is a series of hashes etc.

I've personally never managed to get on with screen readers and aski graphics in roguelikes at all, ---- but then again I do not own a braille display, which I'm guessing would make life far easier than using a screen reader.

Nor I'm afraid do I own a packmate, so I can't be any direct help, but I hope this answers the basic question.

Beware the Grue!

Dark.

Subject: [Audyssey] net hack on the pac mate


hi,
I tried the pac mate games pack, I'll admit a lot. a lot on there!
it'ss better organized now as well. but I have a question, how do you
all classify net hack as being a playable game... I can't play it
mainly because I have no idea what should I be doing. on the screen I
can see my character name and his race, the status, and then a weird
stream of characters, I'm guessing this is a sort of a map or an asky
decoration. what should I be doing? One thing I know. I need to type
commands, but nothing more.
