[DG-Events] Question regarding DG-Regen patch

    Greetings List,

    I just installed the dgevent patch and the regen patch. It works fine,
but I would like a little clarification on its use. For instance, should
EVERY assignment to get_hit, get_move, get_mana be changed to the alter
functions? I have a spell that randomly switches around your hit, mana, mv
points. It is a manual spell. when casted my hit points equaled my mana
points. Now, I was under the impression that since there was no alter call
in the manual spell, it was a direct assignment, that I would not update
because no event had been started. But I was regenerating... So could
anyone that is familiar with this code explain when the alter functions
should be used?
