This is an index of all tile images from 16x16 tileset. The List of vanilla NetHack tiles lists only the tiles (not associated images), the items they represent, and links to associated topics.

The 16x16 tiles are compiled into vanilla NetHack and therefore available on every platform with a GUI interface. Here be screenshots of the tiles in action on Amiga, X Windows, and MS Windows

The tiles themselves are stored as text files encoded in a variation on the XPM image format. In the NetHack source tree they are located in the '<root>\win\share' directory.

  • monsters.txt contains monster tiles.
  • objects.txt contains all the game items, weapons, scrolls, rings, etc.
  • other.txt contains dungeon map, special effects, and miscellaneous tiles.
