Question on affecting skills

From: Stefan Rensing (

Hi all,

I recently have coded a skill called warcry to affect hitroll and
damroll. I had the problem to make the skill *not* cumulative.
I have solved this by using an unused AFF flag (AFF_WARCRY in structs.h),
thus I can simply unaffect the char before affecting it again.

My questions are:

1. Is there an easier way to make the skill non-cumulative than using
   an extra AFF flag (I suppose there is) ?

2. stat shows AFF: UNUSED and , sets UNUSED - so where do I have to 
   enter the appropriate AFF_WARCRY flag descr. besides in structs.h ?

Thanks in advance,
