    Here's what's probably a very stupid question.

    I'm using the win32 version, and my @ sign is highlighted, which I assume is normal. How do I turn it off? I know there is a pet highlight option in the, well, options, but I've failed to find a way to unhighlight myself (like in nethack).

    Thank you for answering!

      I do not know a way to unhighlight oneself (either in nethack or slashem).

      The tty port (if you play in a dosbox or xterm) highlights your @ because it positions the terminal cursor atop your @. This is different from the highlighting that appears atop pets or within inventory screens. The cursor would be useful because when there is more than one @ on the screen, or if you become invisible and cannot see yourself, then the cursor points at yourself.

      You might be able to unhighlight yourself if you can configure the terminal to disable the cursor.
