On my mud, I turned exp into a struct, I don't have the exact code in front of me, but this is pretty close I think: struct exp_type { unsigned int high; unsigned int mid; unsigned int low; }; then in the player file I just defined exp as: struct exp_type exp; and in all of my functions dealing with exp I just told it to could mid and low in billions... so if mid = 50 and low = 100 and high = 72000, you would have 72000000000050000000100 exp... this may be a bit much, but I like to be excessive :) (this will give you a max exp of 4294967296000000000000000000 exp) Al Figliolia - IMP of the siteless Crimson Realms
