Looks nice. But there are limitations.

  1. CTRL+D or CTRL+P cannot work
  2. vi keys don't work
  3. O (options) does not work (at least for unregistered player).
  4. If I select something from any dropdown box, then pressing arrow key will not only move my character, but also "scroll" through that menu (try setting focus away from menu).
  5. I do not see if numeric prefixes work (they seem not to).
  6. Why is command for picking up ' and not ,?
  7. "Loading" after each move is disturbing. I would not show it.
  8. Typing Extended command fills the field and if I continue typing I get something like "quituit"

Those I found after only few minutes of playing. But bringing it to web seems to be not a Bad Idea to do with NetHack. Although I doubt it will bring new players. --Stevko sk 05:53, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

I like the concept but it is missing many major commands such as naming and type-naming, as well as "calling," as per monster naming. It could use quite a few tweaks.
