it's own set of properties. NetHack won't know or care
about them but the window it's running in will.
I changed the colors to be white on black in the window
that is created by running NetHack.exe from the Windows
Explorer (not the command prompt). Now the game
text is white on black and the doors are the correct
brown color, but all white objects are dark blue.
If I run Nethack.exe from the command line and
not through windows explorer, the text is red
on black and the doors are purple.
Have you tried toggling the 'use_darkgray' option on or
off (opposite of whatever it is now)? I'm not sure how it
is supposed to work but I'm fairly sure that it offers some
control for rendering of black on the map.
I tried use_darkgray but without noticeable effect since
doors are now purple.
It is like there is some cached information living
somewhere that is not being updated. I tried searching
for "Command Processor" in the registry but I did not
see a color key/value.
