Yes, this is what stymied me last time.
1. I don't know what a "debugger" is.
2. I'm not a programmer.
3. Even if I knew what it was I wouldn't know how to use it.
4. I dont know how to use linux
If I sent you the savefile Janis, could you do it?
Sorry, no. As AIS said: "[...] or else did some sort of modification
to the save file directly (which is /much/ harder to get right)."
The debugger suggestion is working "interactively" on a *running* game
(as opposed to a saved game file). The debugger gets attached to the
running Nethack process, and you can then change the internal status
of the (Nethack-)program (e.g. the wizmode flag) with the debuuger tool.
Of course it's hard with the points 1.-4., but *if* you have Nethack
on some Unix system (like Linux) running - but I suppose not? - you
could just open another "shell terminal" and type the commands as
AIS suggested. If you are running Windows there's of course also the
chance that you can open a cmd.exe and have also some MS-debugger -
presuming you need no development license for that, don't know -, but
without knowledge I wouldn't suggest to tackle that yourself.
If you post about your system type and OS type someone might be able
to provide an automisation/scripting solution; shouldn't be difficult
even on Windows (I suppose).
