The scariest thing of all is Protobowl

Every single time I try to open triviabot, a popup shows up saying "The settings file is improperly formatted. There should be 4 additional lines before the end of the file or the ~ character. If you are using Linux, you may need to run this program from the command line..." I have downloaded mIRC and Java, and I am pretty sure I am not running Linux, so I have no clue as to why this is happening. Your help would be greatly appreciated.

If you're on a Mac, you have to do the same thing as it says Linux users should do.

If you're using Windows, try extracting the files to somewhere other than your download folder, such as your desktop.
