Oops, I was wrong here.  I was just going by memory and it failed on me.
Changing MAX_AFFECTS will ruin your player files unless you use Ascii
pfiles.  However, this is just the number of affects that a player can have
on him at any one time.  It's use is purely for non-ascii pfiles and can be
eliminated if you use ascii pfiles (with some minor modifications on how
players are saved).
