Frozen-Bubble: starting from commandline?

Does anyone know how to start Frozen-Bubble from commandline to have it start at a specific level? I know I can start it with '/usr/bin/frozen-bubble' , but if I add a number like ' -70 ' to the line, it still starts at level 1.

This and Maelstrom are the main reasons my husband uses the "confuser." He's gotten to level 70 in F-B, but every time he plays he has to start over from the beginning. I promised him I'd try to find a way...

If you run "frozen-bubble --help", it will show you all the options you can use.

"frozen-bubble -l 70" will do it. I know, because I too was stuck there for awhile. After a couple days, I skipped to 71 and made it all the way to 100. Got stuck there. Went back and finally did 70.

I am guessing

/usr/bin/frozen-bubble may be a script which has a command within itself to start the actual frozen-bubble program. If it is a script try putting the -70 on the actual command within the script.

Also frozen-bubble is written in PERL. You may be able to find the variable within the PERL code which describes the start level and change the variable.

Thank you both! "frozen-bubble -l 70" works, so I taped it to the monitor for hubby. He's going to try your advice and skip ahead to 71 and see where that takes him.

I looked in the PERL script, jailbait. Will look again more closely.

If LinuxQuestions had a forum for favorite tweaks and tricks, I'm sure this one would be near the top of the list ;-)

Okay, I know this is LINUXquestions, but, I was hoping that someone here uses frozen bubble with windows as well as with linux as I have been doing.

I can start with command-line options in linux just fine, but have tried all sorts of combinations in the Perl windows version to no avail.

Is there anyone that is willing to help me here, or since this is for linux discussions, can anyone direct me to the proper place?

Thanks in advance!
