Strings Options

The two strings options in settings.xml are loaded as Lua code and run accordingly, so you can do things like adjust numbers and format things as you wish. The default is designed to look somewhat like the Attainment plugin, but you are free to change it however you wish. Be aware that the code will give very unhelpful errors when it fails.
