    Re: can't open synaptic package manager

    Unless you are compiling things from source it's safe to completely remove that last line:


    sudo sed '$d' -i /etc/apt/sources.list

    Not really, it's an engine, everything is going to be defined by data files, that means the items list can be edited later, for now we can be happy with "HP restore" or some such. It's nice to think...

    If the liveCD asks for your username and password I do believe the username is either 'ubuntu' or 'livecd' and the password is blank.

    I think the villans of the game should be based on peta, trying to stop people capturing creatures and forcing them into fights, sounds like the sort of thing they'd be involved in. :p

    foreach critter
    set critter stat multipliers to 0
