Play Tetris in Terminal via emacs
Authored by: grace.y on Jan 05, '05 09:01:59PM

Hi,

I am a really beginner with Mac and Terminal. After I applied this hint in terminal, I have noticed that my Tetris did turn out to be the black and white version.

I know Rob mentioned that if $TERM is set to VT100 (in Terminal Preferences), it'll show up as B&W version. And if I like the color version, I have to set $TERM to ansi.

Maybe what rob said is very obvious to many advenced Mac users out there, but I have tried to change mine into color version without luck. Can somebody be kindly walkthrough the steps for me on how to change the $TERM to ansi? I'll be very very appreciated for your help!

Look in Terminal -> Preferences; you'll see a drop-down menu where you can set $TERM. Then just open a new Terminal window after changing it.
