The problem you have here is that the _max _players are already defined
in comm.obj, you need find the definition and tear it out. Then you need to
declare _max_players as an external type Or you'll still have compile
errors. This is probably screwed up because you previously needed
_max_payers in comm.obj and then set in the define.
in truth it would be better to not do this as a define in those files, but
somewhere in structs.h or utils.h since they are part of everything. and
since in config.c you should probably make the _max_players look like this:

int _max_players = <number you want>

then in comm.c where the externals are put in this line.

extern int _max_players

All previous definitions of this constant can then be removed.
