Options – nethack wiki gas 1940 hopper

The name of your character. Compound option, defaults to your user name. If set to player, then NetHack will ask for the user name, even on systems where it normally wouldn’t. If suffixed with dash and character role letter (one of -A -B -C -H -K -M -P -Ra -Ro -S -T -V -W), then also defines the character role, or if suffixed with -@, then selects a random role.

Sets the order of item classes shown in inventory. Compound option, takes a string of up to 14 characters, with default values of ")[%?+!=/(*`0_. Omitted types are filled in at the end from the previous order. Can be set in-game. Persistent.

Prompt for confirmation before picking up items that will push the character’s encumbrance past a given level — Unencumbered, Burdened, streSsed, straiNed, Overtaxed, or overLoaded. This will NOT prompt the player if he is about to pick up a loadstone or gold. Defaults to S. Persistent.

When walking across a pile of objects on the floor, threshold at which the message "there are few/several/many objects here" is given instead of showing a popup list of those objects. A value of 0 means "no limit" (always list of the objects); a value of 1 effectively means "never show the objects" since the pile size will always be at least that big; default value is 5. Persistent.

Values are normal, explore, or debug. Allows selection of explore mode (also known as discovery mode) or debug mode (also known as wizard mode) instead of normal play. Debug mode might only be allowed for someone logged in under a particular user name (on multi-user system) or it might be disabled entirely. Requesting it when not allowed or not possible results in explore mode instead. NAO has both Explore and Debug modes disabled entirely. Default is normal play.

Set your character’s race. A compound option, with possible values of human, elf, dwarf, gnome, orc, or random, with default of random. If you prefix a ! to the value, you can exclude that race from being picked randomly. Cannot be set in-game. Persistent.

Set your character’s role. Can also be random. A compound option. See name option for an alternate method of specifying your role. Normally only the first letter of the value is examined, with r being the exception with Rogue, Ranger, and random values. If you prefix an option with !, you can exclude that role from being picked randomly. Cannot be set in-game. Persistent.

Displays the exact number of experience points next to your experience level on the status line. Useful for seeing how close you are to the next level, but it may increase the length of the status line a lot, pushing important notifications (like Hungry, Ill, FoodPois, etc.) off the end.

Uses the symbol for your race instead of @. That’s h for dwarves, o for orcs and G for gnomes. Elves are still @. This could be useful for reminding you not to genocide your racial glyph but is not widely used. Boolean option, defaults to FALSE. Can be set in-game.
