1) upgrade to pl5a to remain current.
2) read the documentation for DG Scripts instead of for MobProgs. In DG,
ramdom numbers are done through the %random.max-num% pseudo-variable.
So, if you want an X in a hundred percent chance, think about:

eval chance %random.100%
if %chance% <= 15
    it was the 1st 15%
else if %chance% <= 50
    it was the next 35%
