I don't think it is a glitch.

So, this is officially the best game ever. Here's why.

I just created a character with 11 Str 7 dex 7 int and 8 per, Quick Deft, Heavy Sleeper, Illiterate, and two in dodge, melee, bashing weps., firearms, mechanics, and first aid.

His name, of course, is Burt Gummer, the crazy conspiracy nut from Tremors.

Here's the best part. I start him up, grab the useful stuff upstairs, and head into the basement.

What I find is two shelves packed full of weapons and ammo. So very hilariously appropriate. How did the game know!?

Skeeblix, with any luck you've also spawned in a Graboid zone. :D

Finding a lot of guns in the basement seems to be common for me.

Gaah, this game crashes too much. Should I be playing the latest version, or something else?

Argh, how do I make a shortcut to this? I've built it, and in the same directory have a startup script that cd's there and does ./cataclysm. But when I make a launcher pointing to the startup script, it doesn't open through terminal (I assume) so it does nothing. It works if I do so manually, but I'd prefer not to need to do that.

In addition, my terminal is 80x24, and it needs 80x25. I'm required to resize it every time. Is there anything I can add to the startup script that changes that? gnome-terminal --geometry 80x25 is all that I can find, but it just opens a new term window rather than modifying the running one.

Try making your script execute "gnome-terminal --geometry 80x25 -e 'cd /path/to/cata; ./cataclysm'".  This will spawn a new terminal of appropriate size and start the game inside it.  You can then place a link to the script in your start menu, bind it to a hotkey, or whatever.  Note that I made up the "-e" part; I'm not sure if that's the real g-t flag, but you can check the manfile.
Alternative, there's probably a config file for gnome-terminal in your home dir where you can change the default size.

Try 1.3.5, it's been a lot more stable for me than *.7. Dunno if th'git thingy's got something newer than 1.3.7 yet.

1.3.7 was/is crashing for me something like every five t'ten minutes, plus there was ways to guarantee a crash -- the opening of th'inventory immediately after closing th'@ screen, ferex. Inventory management in general was crash-prone. Just terribly unstable.

1.3.5's only crashed a few times, mostly when dealing with unloading batteries. Seems that if your inventory's full and you try to unload something with batts, it'll CTD nice and quicklike.

I've just hopscotched between the @ screen and the inventory screen a few dozen times.

Either you're all unlucky or I'm very lucky.

Edit -> Profile Preferences
Check the box labeled "use custom default terminal size". You'll probably need to give it more than 25 height, as it seems to include the non-client area of the window (title bar, toolbar buttons, etc.)
Alternatively, use the parameters above to make a custom Terminal icon in your desktop that opens at the desired size, if you don't want to change your global terminal default.
