Re: adding stuff to player_table

ok.... adding the fields it the easy part, what about updating them?  Having
advance_level advance player_table[].level would be easy, but what about gold.
Don't know if that is going to be much of a problem because I am going to have
to replace all GET_GOLD calls with functions because we are moving to a currency
system with denominations, but what about everyone else?  They would need to do
the same thing?

"stat file" works the same way in ascii as it does in binary. If you want
gold stats on a regular basis, you could add it to the player_table, as
I've done with player level and last login for automaintenance purposes.
