- Settings->Options->Dice->random.org

  there's a drop down meny 'Random number generator'

this offers 'random.org' => gnubg will attempt to get rolls from there
itself) and 
'file' (Datei) => gnubg will read a file you have prepared. The file
format is pretty loose - it ignores any character which isn't a digit
For example, I just created a tiny file and had gnubg play against
itself using this file:

301 ignore
7319 all of this
006 even in the middle 2

gnubg saw the rolls as 
3 1 opening roll 
3 1 reply to opening
6 2
5 5
4 1
3 5

When it gets to here, it goes back and reuses the file from the
start. If you have a large file of digits from random.org, gnubg will
use them if you want it to.
