Does anyone know what happened to Vulture's Eye/Claw? It seems like the darkarts website is down and expired. I've only recently thought about playing a roguelike ('coz it's too hot to play big hardware-intensive games) and have just learned about it. I played Falcon's Eye some years ago, but at that time my old 200MMX would start crashing after i'd get too deep in the dungeon, so now I'd rather play a more advanced version of it. Sorry if this seems like heresy to you guys, but I'd really much rather play with the Vulture's interface than the original NetHack. juggernut 10:37, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

My girlfriend is using it, so it works. Myself I use tiles because it is more keyboard-friendly and quicker to play. -Tjr 12:33, 23 July 2009 (UTC)
Is it at all possible for either of you to temporarily upload it someplace? Please? I'm googling my bum off trying to find a copy. Sheesh.. I've just noticed how ambiguous my initial post was. 'Coz that's what I wanted in the first place... a tip on where I might find a copy of Vulture's. -juggernut 13:03, 23 July 2009 (UTC)
She installed everything from the standard SuSE packaging system that sounded like nethack, so you could look over there. BTW, even if you're not using linux, you can grab the source .rpm / .deb and unpack it. Come back if that doesn't help you. -Tjr 16:44, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

Oops, looks like that page doesn't have windows binaries. My bad. --paxed 17:58, 23 July 2009 (UTC)
Where the heck did that website come from??? I've been googling for some days now, with different keyword combinations and not once did I find it! Hm... thanks. -juggernut 04:31, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

You, sir, are a godsend! I think I shall name my first PC after you. Naturally, this PC is bound to have an extremely short life-span, but still, let us pretend that it is a sign of my gratitude and that there is a compliment hidden somewhere in there. ;D Many thanks!! -juggernut 08:54, 24 July 2009 (UTC)
