Hello again!
Ok, i did like this, i patched Oasis and then i copied all errors i got and im gonna show every error i get for you people :-)

When im forst trying to compile it i get an error there is conflicting type, but i just comment away those lines.. the code under this is the first error i get its something wrong with max_players. To just get on with the compiling to see the other errors i renamed all max_playing to max_players (this wont work). Well i dont know how to fix this with max_players, any idea?

comm.c: In function `get_max_players':
comm.c:504: `max_playing' undeclared (first use in this function)
comm.c:504: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
comm.c:504: for each function it appears in.)
make[1]: *** [comm.o] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/toxez/mud/circle30bpl17/src'
make: *** [all] Error 2

    if (limit.rlim_max == RLIM_INFINITY)
      max_descs = max_playing + NUM_RESERVED_DESCS;  <---- line 504
      max_descs = MIN(max_playing + NUM_RESERVED_DESCS, limit.rlim_max);
    max_descs = MIN(max_playing + NUM_RESERVED_DESCS, limit.rlim_max);

Under here i did a grep to see all max_players and max_playing in my src directory:
(grep max_players *)
comm.c:int max_players = 0;             /* max descriptors available */
comm.c:int get_max_players(void);
comm.c:  max_players = get_max_players();
comm.c:    if ((wsaData.iMaxSockets - 4) < max_players) {
comm.c:      max_players = wsaData.iMaxSockets - 4;
comm.c:    log("Max players set to %d", max_players);
comm.c:int get_max_players(void)
comm.c:  if (sockets_connected >= max_players) {
config.c:int max_players = 300;

(grep max_playing *)
comm.c:  return (max_playing);
comm.c:      max_descs = max_playing + NUM_RESERVED_DESCS;
comm.c:      max_descs = MIN(max_playing + NUM_RESERVED_DESCS, limit.rlim_max);
comm.c:    max_descs = MIN(max_playing + NUM_RESERVED_DESCS, limit.rlim_max);
comm.c:      max_descs = max_playing + NUM_RESERVED_DESCS;
comm.c:  max_descs = max_playing + NUM_RESERVED_DESCS;
comm.c:  max_descs = MIN(max_playing, max_descs - NUM_RESERVED_DESCS);

Ok, after i renamed all max_players to max_playing (to get moving) i get this little piecse of error, (to remove it i comment away the two lines in fight.c)

fight.c:31: conflicting types for `str_app'
constants.h:28: previous declaration of `str_app'
fight.c:32: conflicting types for `dex_app'
constants.h:30: previous declaration of `dex_app'

After this, it compiles and creates the bin/circle file... but when i run it i get this error: SYSERR: Non-positive max player limit! (set o using rlimit)
Of course i get this because of that i just renamed all max_players to max_playing... But HOW can i fix this little (but hard for me) problem? Can anyone help?

Bye :-)
