structs.h:688:   sh_int max_hit;        /* Max hit for PC/NPC           */

if I remember correctly sh_int is defined as signed short int.  try using
and unsigned int to get up to 65535 or asigned long for 2,147,438,647, or
an unsigned long for 4,294,967,295

P.S. grep is your friend.

Expect the worst, hope for the best, be thankful for the few errors you get.
