Terminal Keyboard for NetHack - now in Chum

Your rating: None Average: 5 (1 vote)

A keyboard layout for FingerTerm intended for playing NetHack. There's a "regular" and a specialized "side" keyboard layout - both are intended for landscape orientation.

It's probably only useful if you also install the NetHack game - it's prettty weird to use with anything else.


BETA RELEASE, I quickly added what I thought are the most useful commands. Suggestions and improvements very welcome. You can use the git repo https://gitlab.com/nephros/openrepos-nethack for patches/pull requests and so on, or just drop a comment here.

The layouts can be found at ~/.config/FingerTerm/nethack*.layout

Great stuff, should probably just be named roguelike keyboard as will be useful for most RL (ADOM arm build for raspberry pi works out of the box, brogue cli version compiles easily though has display issues, cataclysm used to compile great on n900 but DDA guys kinda don't care about clean code and that broke at some point), thanks!

Hey thanks for testing.

I'm not very familiar with other RLs, do they overall use similar key bindings?

Anyway good to hear this has multiple uses, feel free to send any modifications needed for other games and I'll put them up here.
