Yup.. I need to work on that =/

In all honesty the patch I submitted isnt very good, it needs some tweaking,
but hey, at least its a start ;)

I actually have a double_hit skill, and I failed to mention that in my code,
when you hit and miss, the double hit SKILL will miss automatically
I guess I kinda fudged up on the dual wield eh?

Thanks for pointing that out, I still ahvent fixed that on my server, yechk!

I think this is because *wielded already has the message stored in it?? Im
nto sure, im only 18 and dumber than cow poop ;)

Anyway, heres a descriptiopn of what needs to be worked out:
1) ACMD(do_dwield) is not needed. I dont know why in god's name I left it in
there, its never called.
2) its all about positions, so you will probably want to make a remove
function remove wield or dwield, because all it does right now is remove
both weapons, this could probably be done by  setyting on/off flags to each
position and when somone tries a 'remove whatever' utl remove it and ect...
blah blah blah.. thats only an idea though =P
3) the giants need to put up 21 points in the next half or else im going to
go insane and kill everyone.
