@Guitarman, with the manamon thing, I didn't literally mean a complete index of all the manamon in the entire game, just a slightly easier way of presenting the information on elements which you find in the elemental weakness chart.
For example the program could work with you pressing a key such as f for fire, e for earth, p for plant or o for poison, to select an element then a second key to get more information about that element.
Eg, you could press o for poinson and then e for earth to be told whether poison is strong against, weak against, average or unaffected by earth.
You could also include a couple of keys to give you complete information, eg, what you find in the manual, so for example hitting e and then hitting z could tell you all the elements earth is strong against, while hitting e and then hitting x could tell you all the elements earth is weak to.
This is something which would be really helpful when playing manamon and save a lot of trauling through that weakness chart, yet it could be done probably with less programming than a game of black jack.
With our dreaming and singing, Ceaseless and sorrowless we! The glory about us clinging Of the glorious futures we see,
Our souls with high music ringing; O men! It must ever be
That we dwell in our dreaming and singing, A little apart from ye. (Arthur O'Shaughnessy 1873.)
