That was my problem too (file renaming) -- and the toggle is kind of buried in windows. Here is how to find it:

1.
Open Folder Options by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, and then clicking Folder Options.

2.
Click the View tab, and then, under Advanced settings, to display file extensions, clear the Hide extensions for known file types check box, and then click OK.

Regarding client and birth options, are we allowed to change the other options (excluding birth_no_selling and LIMIT_STAIRS = 1)?

Also, for my own purposes, is it okay to increase the FPS higher than 75? My internet connection sucks bad....if I'm playing online.

By the way, I'm not seeing too many other players at the Tavern. No one home?

Is it possible to dump an alive character? Just killed Shagrat and found my first ego item. +10 Speedboots.

But in my inventory a) b) and c) are filled with coins? Wasting some precious space.

Wow! Congratz, got a lantern of brightness from Wormtongue but that's it for egos from unique's so far. Did find 2 strength potions on a superb feeling level 4 though . I believe you can only post after either winning or dying, not 100% sure though.

Is there any way to see other players in-game-online while playing PWMAngband? e.g., watching other players beat up orcs in the dungeons?

You'd presumably all need to connect to the same server, which would create some perverse incentives in the competition.

A free-for-all multiplayer competition could be interesting, though!

You can increase FPS higher (I know ToMENet runs with FPS=100), but it would make the game ultra-speedy and you would be really lucky to survive a few turns...

And you can see other players... if you actually run a "remote" server (connected to the metaserver with a specific domain name) and ask other people to play on your server.

You can't dump alive characters in 1.1.9, but I'm planning to add this feature for 1.1.10 (which will be based on Angband 3.5). Good luck with your character, speed boots +10 will greatly increase survivability. I hope you got a nice dragon breed for this one...

Your inventory contains coins? This is really strange... What did you do to get that? Never seen that before...

Ive no idea how I got those coins. Also couldn't remove them with 'd'ropping those slots. But they were suddenly gone (and back a little after that).

*edit*
Figured it out. If you fight and coins are dropped underneath you and you pick em up without moving (pressing g). It will then appear in your inventory.
