thaco is inate bonus to hitroll, read some of the code in fight.c to see it
in action. when you have a 93level system, thats [NUM_CLASSES][NUM_LEVELS]
so it's a real pain. we just eliminated it, butt then again we are moving as
far away from TSR as possible, so...
the unknown apply is from an object most likely - i think :)
you'll have to scan yer log and find out when the object is
being loaded - it'll give an error then also.
then look at the object and make sure it aint using a wacky
apply. (apply is APPLY_HITROLL, etc.)
OR this is a problem with your levels. we dunt got levels, so i dunno :)
