Re: [Code][Errors Autoexit]

From: Adam (tornado@BLAST.NET)

Right before I made this change I ripped all the levels out except for the
mortal start zone, the immortal start zone, zone 0, and the good death,
evil death, and neutral death zones that I added. This all compiled and
worked fine with no problems. Then I only editted the act.informative.c
file with the autoexit command and now I get that char_to_room error right
after the MUD crashes when a mortal player logs in? I am able to linkload
the mortal player and switch into him/her and walk around seeing things
perfectly fine without the MUD crashing.
Anybody have any further ideas?



P.S I am inexperienced with GDB so I probably can't use it yet.
