Heh, I understood the code perfectly, and I do understand bitvectors,
it was just that I wrote the letter at 12:08am, and after getting up at
4:00am I was just SLIGHTLY tired... anyway, I found out what I did
wrong, I actually copied the object apply code, and set my
sscanf to (line, "%d", t + 1);
I deleted the wrong "t", so instead of reading to t[0], I was reading
the bitvector to t[1]... found out after getting a bit of sleep and re
reading the code *blush*.

Yeah, I looked at it, but couldn't get it to work because of the previous reason
(reading to t[1], not t[0])... BTW I DID look at equip_char, and unequip_char,
that's why I didn't just change the structres blindly... I do have SOME coding
