[NEWBIE]OLC/DGScripts...more problems

From: Christina Orr (torr@MAIL.TQCI.NET)

I finally got the mud (pl12) to compile with the patch for Oasis+DGScripts
from Equoria's webpage but it crashes almost immediately after booting.
The code is completely stock other than this addition.

There are a couple warnings I get that may be the problem but I can't locate
the actual problem code.

db.c(2138) : warning C4022: 'free' : pointer mismatch for actual parameter 1
db.c(2140) : warning C4022: 'free' : pointer mismatch for actual parameter 1

if (ch->player_specials->poofin)
    if (ch->player_specials->poofout)

act.wizard.c(1418) : warning C4047: '=' : 'char ** ' differs in levels of
indirection from 'char (*)[201]'
act.wizard.c(1419) : warning C4047: '=' : 'char ** ' differs in levels of
indirection from 'char (*)[201]'

  char **msg;

  switch (subcmd) {
(1418) -->  case SCMD_POOFIN:    msg = &(POOFIN(ch));    break;
(1419) -->  case SCMD_POOFOUT:   msg = &(POOFOUT(ch));   break;
  default:    return;    break;


  if (*msg)

  if (!*argument)
    *msg = NULL;
    *msg = str_dup(argument);

  send_to_char(OK, ch);

If its any help at all, Windows gives me this info when the mud crashes:

CIRCLE caused an invalid page fault in

As I have said in previous posts I am a newbie at this.  I have actually
successfully installed other patches to another copy of the code but
anything involving Oasis always seems to kick my butt. : )  Any ideas/help
anyone could offer would be greatly appreciated.
