  82. The version of Nethack on Redbrick is based on the Ubuntu version, which
  83. contains, among others, the
  84. [menucolors](http://nethackwiki.com/wiki/Menucolors) and
  85. [hpmon](http://nethackwiki.com/wiki/Hpmon) patches. We also patch it
  86. with the [dumplog](http://bilious.homelinux.org/?40) patch, which
  87. records a lot of info about the game when you die.
  88. A configuration file for the game (which takes advantage of hpmon and
  89. menucolors and makes it prettier with UTF-8 shit, among other things) is
  90. available [here](http://www.redbrick.dcu.ie/~bunbun/.nethackrc), just
  91. put it in \~/.nethackrc. If you\'d like to keep all of the dumpfiles
  92. created when you die, instead of just the most recent, add the following
  93. alias to your shell rc file (most likely \~/.zshrc)
  94. `` alias nethack="nethack; [ ! -e \"/var/games/nethack/save/$USERID$USERNAME.gz\" ] && cp /var/games/nethack/dumps/$USERNAME.lastgame.txt ~/dumps/\`date +%Y-%m-%d-%H:%M:%S\`.txt" ``
  95. Make sure to change \$USERID and \$USERNAME to your userid (gotten with
  96. the \`id\` command) and your username. This should save it each time you
  97. die to \~/dumps/YEAR-MM-DD-HH:MM:SS.txt, though in some cases it creates
  98. duplicates (If you quit before choosing your role/race/gender/alignment
  99. that I know of).
  100. ## netris

  102. into RedBrick.

  108. A clone of the game \"Snake\" which was created in the 1970s but
  109. popularised by the Nokia 3210 mobile phone (especially in Irish
