A couple of suggestions here:
1. Send some more information such as the gdb output, errors, or some code.

2. Try formating your information in a manner that is more understandable.
3. Start with simpler things to code, spells, wear positions, number of
   attacks, or other similar snippets. To get a better idea of how the code
   is put togather, and where things are.
