Falcons eye Slashem Nethack
Been playing nethack for years and have recently found out about Slashem. This one not only tries to add tile graphics but also is supposed to have more items effects etc.
But I am still having problems getting the tiles to show up.
As for ways to stay alive on a level not to hard maybe lvl 7 if you can reach lvl 10 find a place to lock your self in make sure that resting will stop if you are attacked and then rest untill you are collapsing (ring of resist hunger is good if you can get it) then eat what you have or pray(if you have been acting in good faith your god should help out) now go kill the stuff around the level. The basis of this is to try and get alot monsters you can kill this way you build your skills and abilities and equipment.
Also having a ring of resist poison is good to enable eating anything.
Hope it helps. It can be a very engaging game.
