I'm a Ruby/Rails newbie. I've just created my first Ruby gem called GameFake. It's like Faker for video games. Anyway, the gem works great in the irb. But when I fire up the Rails console (./script/console) and try to require 'gamefake', I get all kinds of syntax errors. Once again, the code works great in the Ruby console. The gem can be found here: http://github.com/cbmeeks/gamefake/tree/master (sorry, not trying to do a shameless plug). The actual syntax error is in the middle of the "SMS_Games" array. I've looked over this array a million times. It's large but should be ok. Any suggestions on what I'm doing wrong? Thanks for any help! PS, anyone else type Ryby a million times when they are trying to type Ruby? lol

The only thing that jumped out at me with that were the missing characters - so for instance, the accented e in Asterix doesn't show up correctly on github. Without a listing of the 'all kinds of syntax errors', it's hard to tell. BTW, for storing arrays like this, Yaml might be more efficient... --Matt Jones

I loaded the array into komoto edit but never noticed the accent marks. I will scan the list more thoroughly for things like that. Oh, and good idea on the Yaml tip! Thanks!!
