Topic: Game Programming / Graphical Nethack (Flash)

I just finished Graphical Nethack and put it online. It’s called tilehack and the work was done by Jack Whitham but he didn’t actually want to run a public server. Give it a try and let me know what you think.

It’s implemented with a heavily modified shellinabod software, which is a javascript based terminal emulator. Jack modified nethack to send special character codes with each character that correspond to the appropriate tiles which are loaded from the webserver. It should be possible to do something similar in flash which I may do someday. I actually prefer javascript+html5 over flash but kong only lets you submit flash games.

Wow people are actually talking about my game,

Unknown guardian please send me a bug report about that error or at least tell me the browser you are using.

Soiled is a telnet client. Telnet is text only. It’s is like 30 year old technology and flash-nethack wouldn’t be possible without it.

If I feel there is enough demand for a full api integration I’ll probably do it sooner.
