lets look at that code again;

if (AWAKE(ch) && (ch->in_room == ch->specials.fighting->in_room)) {
  hit(ch, ch->specials.fighting, TYPE_UNDEFINED);

  if((GET_SKILL(ch, SKILL_DOUBLE) > 0)) {
    if(GET_SKILL(ch, SKILL_DOUBLE) > number(1,200)-5*GET_LEVEL(ch))
!      if(FIGHTING(ch));

  if((GET_SKILL(ch, SKILL_TRIPLE) > 0)) {
    if(GET_SKILL(ch, SKILL_TRIPLE) > number(1,200)-10*GET_LEVEL(ch))
!      if(FIGHTING(ch));
  } else {

--- below is probably extraneous, part of the function this snip is from--

        Okay. first, lets look at the syntax errors.  There's two that pop
out in my head, and those are the lines with the bang before them up
above.  Why don't you remove those semicolons.  With, it will always fire
off the attack whether you're actively fighting someone or not.

        Since it will be null most of the time, that's probably a bad
thing.  Try using a debugger to trace the values sent to 'hit()'.
