(Sorry I have posted this email to -devel by mistake)
It seems to me that in dunnet, the line that extracts the current time is offset by 1. You may try to eval:
(substring (current-time-string) 11 19)
(substring (current-time-string) 12 20)
While I believe that the game must have once worked with earlier versions of emacs, I'm not sure if (substring) or (current-time-string) has been changed since then.
Please find the patch below.
