[OLC] Can someone help me with my link errors???

Dear All,

        I recently downloaded from the circlemud FTP site, Oasis for
win95. When I first recompiled, the new obj files that were created from
OLC wouldn't link. Then I changed the header file, OLC.h and recompiled
it, and it linked. The only thing is, whenever I try to do OLC from
inside the mud, it crashes giving the following error:

CIRCLE8 caused an invalid page fault in
module CIRCLE8.EXE at 0137:004657d3.

the only changes I made, were the following.

line 65, and line 68, I took out the asteriks from the variables, grn,
yel, etc.

I then thought that since it crashed, I did something wrong... I restored
the original OLC files, and recompiled again, without any changes,
however, this time it linked without any problems, so I thought ok... so
I started up the mud, and logged in, and tried OLC. specifically redit.
It crashed the mud, with exactly the same error. Please help me someone,
I am dire need of assistance on this issue.

thank you,

Kyle smith
