[CODE] [Newbie] format arguments, %d vs. %s.

Alright, here's the problem... I generally had the %d below as a %s, but that
would error ( warning: format argument is not a pointer (arg 3) ) , and crash
the mud if anybody ever Look'ed into a room.

In act.informative.c...
  sprintf(buf2,"...is covered in %d's paintballs!\r\n",GET_PAINTBALL(i));
    send_to_char(buf2, ch);

So I replaced it with a %d, and now I get a number:
Catherine the Grape is standing here.
...is covered in 136's paintballs!

Any idea why this is happening?

Thanks ahead of time,
 - Viper
