Gameplay

The gameplay is not very interesting. If the game isn't modified it isn't worth the effort to port it to the XO. --Fasten 03:28, 9 December 2007 (EST)

Interesting is a very broad and general term. If you could give more specifics of feedback,it might actually help to improve it. Thanks. --Arjs 01:34, 2 February 2008 (EST)

Speech

We are in the process of bringing a speech synthesis server to the XO. The work should hopefully get completed very soon. You might want to consider using the underlying speech synthesis server that will be installed on the XO for speech synthesis. This ways you will be able to cut down drastically on the audio files for speech that you might have wanted to store. Hemant goyal 22:04, 1 February 2008 (EST)

Seems like a very interesting idea to me. --Arjs 01:32, 2 February 2008 (EST)

the data is obsolete

I notice that you are porting an old piece of software with old data. Much has changed in our understanding of nutrition. White bread with margarine is no longer considered benign, because we now know that complex carbohydrates are like sugar and that partially hydrogenated vegatable oil is worse than saturated fat. Corn (maize) is not such a good crop to be growing. One should not even count all vegetable oils as the same thing; omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids should be eaten in a proper ratio.
