Just change that array in class.c too whatever values you want, we have
200 levels and warriros get down to -20 Thac0, no problems so far.

I have been working on this one myself, being a newbie coder, I would have
to say that modifying the do_orac (do_practice?) prolly in act.other.c
(onthave my code in front of me) to do some class checking, also, you can
change the max learned for all classes to 95 this will allow all classes
to learn skills to the same level (why a warrior can learn the skills ofg
his trade as well as a clserc canlearn the skills of thier i dont know) 

Hope this helps and wsnt too much of a babble
