Try the mob_special_data struct it is for stuff used by mobs but not

Hey you might want to add these two variables as E-specs, that
way you wont have to worry about converting your files at all
since they would not be required by all mobs, just the ones
you wanted to specify them for. Adding the especs is very easy,
you just have to add a couple of case statement, one to
parse_espec in db.c to read it and one to write_espec in
genmob.c to save it.
