Over a couple of trials, I got the game running. First things first, I checked my old character. Luckily, I still have my pets. However, they are still able to expire.
My character is still damn fat. I just read something on the forums that eating berries and other fruit will help me lower my fatyness. However, it also stated that having muscle makes my character look fat. I have been fighting and kicking some trees, so I may have some muscle on me that makes me look fat.
Because I am fat, I am very slow. That means I can flee on certain occasions (Also, ladies wont pick me up)
