NETHACK v3.1.3 OFFICIAL BINARIES AVAILABLE
Amiga NetHack 3.1.3
Amiga NetHack 3.1.3 is the third patchlevel of NetHack 3.1.
Saved games and bones files from previous versions (including
previous patch levels of 3.1) will NOT work with this release.
NetHack is created by the NetHack Development Team and ported to
the Amiga by the Amiga NetHack Team. Please report bugs, problems,
and suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note
that you are using the Amiga version.
NetHack 3.1 is a new generation of the dungeon exploration game
NetHack. It is a distant descendent of Hack, and a direct
descendent of NetHack 3.0. It is the product of two years of
very intensive effort by the NetHack Development Team and its
porting sub-teams. Many parts of 3.0 were rewritten for
NetHack 3.1, and many new features were added.
We dedicate the game to the many players of 3.0, with special
note of those who communicated with us and contributed their
ideas to the development of this new version.
NetHack 3.1.3 is primarily a bug-fix update. Other improvements
are left for you to discover.
NetHack runs on any Amiga with at least 2 meg of RAM and AmigaDOS
1.3 or 2.04 (or later). NetHack will run from floppy but a hard
disk is strongly recommended - NetHack requires approximately 3
meg of hard disk space. The official binaries are packed with
the lz archiver, version 1.92.
The official binaries are available in two .lzh files on aminet.
The files are NH31P3-1.lzh and NH31P3-2.lzh. (They have been
uploaded to the new directory on ftp.wustl.edu; I expect they
will be moved to game/role.)
In addition, the same files are available on linc.cis.upenn.edu
(please limit transfers from linc to non-business hours, East
Coast USA time). The files on linc are in pub/NH3.1/binaries/amiga.
Full source code for all versions of NetHack (Amiga, Unix, MS-DOS,
Macintosh, OS/2, VMS, NT, Atari) is available in pub/NH3.1/source.
The official binaries for Amiga NetHack come in two .lzh
files. Extract the installation instructions from the first
archive (probably called NH31P3-1.lzh) with the following
lz x NH31P3-1.lzh NetHack/ReadMe
and follow the directions. Note that the ReadMe file will be
in a NetHack subdirectory.
We have been informed that the default stack is not big enough
to unpack the archives with some archivers - if you have
trouble unpacking the archives try increasing your stack to
For problems with the archives contact email@example.com
or use the central address firstname.lastname@example.org.
