IntroductionNetHack is one of the oldest computer role-playing games still played and developed. The latest version of the game, NetHack 3.4.0, was released in March 2002.Some players may dislike the game's character-based graphics. Newer versions of NetHack feature tile-based, somewhat prettier graphics, but I decided to go even further. Thus, I decided to create a new, graphics-intensive look for NetHack.Falcon's Eye is a mouse-driven interface for NetHack that enhances the visuals, audio and accessibility of the game, yet retains all the original gameplay and game features. Take a look at some screenshots. I call the combination of the game and the interface NetHack - Falcon's Eye. Features * mouse-driven interface (keyboard play also supported) * high-res, isometric graphics with real-time lighting * ease of play: autopilot, tooltip descriptions of game objects, and more * digitized sound effects * MIDI soundtrack (listen to some samples) * sound effects and keyboard commands are customizable * retains all NetHack features System RequirementsFor all versions: * 386 or greater (Pentium recommended) * Display card capable of 800x600 resolution, 256 colors * Mouse * 6 megabytes disk spaceFor the Windows version: * Windows 95, 98, Me, NT4 or 2000 * DirectX 3.0 or greater * DirectX compatible display adapter * For sound effects and music: DirectSound compatible sound cardFor the Linux and BeOS versions: * SDL libraries, available from www.libsdl.org * In Linux, MIDI and MP3 music are supported through external, configurable players For the DOS version: * VESA compatible display adapter * Sound effects and music not supported
