Paranoid Quit

NameParanoid Quit v1.0
Rating96%
AuthorJukka Lahtinen, David Damerell, Jonathan Nieder, Stanislav Traykov
ForNetHack 3.4.3
DescriptionRequires you to type
 This patch makes the commands #q (quit) and X (change to explore mode) (if the option paranoid_quit is on), and the prompts for hitting peaceful monsters (if options confirm and paranoid_hit are on) and leaving wizard mode bones (regardless of runtime options), expect a typed "yes" instead of just 'y'. Every other response will be treated as "no".
Now it also forces the menu to be shown with the 'T' and 'R' commands even when there is only one item to be taken off or removed, if the additional paranoid_remove option is set.

Apply the patch and add
#define PARANOID
in your include/config.h and OPTIONS=paranoid_hit,paranoid_quit,paranoid_remove in your configuration file.

Thanks a lot for this patch! I just applied it successfully to Slash'Em after accidentally losing a promising caster to an inadvertent quit yesterday, I actually wanted to save but hit the quit hotkey instead. Argh. Now this will hopefully happen to me no longer thanks to this patch! Thanks again! :)[Quote]

I love this patch. I added paranoid_die option for Explore (and Wizard) mode.

To SheeEttin: I think it's more user friendly to treat everything that is not "yes" as "no" than to require explicit "no".[Quote]

Shouldn't all other answers be given a "try again" (except "no" and variants thereof)?[Quote]

This patch is very helpful, would have saved my life several times if I knew
earlier. :)

One feature I miss: The patch should also accept only [yes/no] when leaving the
dungeon in the 1st level![Quote]
