Hi there,

  The other day there was some request about the code that adds affect 
flags to objects. My brother Remko promised that I would post the code, 
so here it is. Based upon earlier discussions and examples in this list:

in db.c, go to parse_object()

look for the switch statement of the additional flags, then insert:
[the part between the #defines is the inserted code, the other is 

#ifdef HYPNO
** affect player flags (see AFF_XXX flags in structs.h )
** This allows players flags to be affected by an item, for example
** create a ring which gives the player permanent sense life when worn.
** Note: more 'C' fields are allowed because all found 'C' (set char bits)
**		   fields are added to the current values. (nice for builders who
**       don't want those large bitvector numbers in the obj file).
	 case 'C':
      get_line(obj_f, line);
      sscanf(line, "%d ", t);
      obj_proto[i].obj_flags.bitvector = obj_proto[i].obj_flags.bitvector | t[0];
    case '$':
    case '#':
      top_of_objt = i++;
      return line;
      fprintf(stderr, "Format error in %s\n", buf2);

Ok, then make in one of your object files something like (values of 
flags may vary, depending on your situation, see structs.h):
Check out the C flag, that's the one that matters.

This ring is a masterpiece! the shiny golden blue ring is attached to a
platinum cord and has an inscription of silvery symbols.

The cord looks really strange as if it can grow and shrink.
