Infinite negative points for new character?!

This is the first time I try this game so it could be that I’m missing something. It seems I can add as many traits and skills to my character as I want it just goes into the negative. Is this normal? How many sill point am I suppose to have.

And a small question on the side. I’ve created a new gfx directory in the cataclysm folder and copied the Waldo tile set there. It doesn’t seem to load it. Do I need to do something else as well?

Thanks in advance!

The Negative Points thing just stops you from making the character.

for me the points don’t go negative they just go to 0 then start going back up infinitely even when you are spending them.
