What I did was I put:

GET_LOADROOM(ch) = world[InRoom(ch)].number;

in the do_quit code in act.other.c.  What I had been doing was


which was wrong due to the difference between virtual numbers and real 
numbers.  Thank you those who did reply to me.

One option, which is more of a hack is to disconnect people once they 
type quit, ie force them to type 0 at the menu.  Copy the code from the 
con_menu 0 to do_quit, that way ytou aren't sending them back to the 
menu.  Or you could make players load where they save.  That has it's 
advantages and disadvatages.  What we did was we have the players load 
where they save upto one hour.  Then when hp, mana, etc is restored, we 
set them back to their racial hometowns.  That way we are getting the 
best of both worlds.
