It fun when you work 14 hours a day and spend the few moments here and there that you have spare working on your game. For the last few days i have been recoding how overland mobiles and overland resets are handled so that they perform a little more like the resets in a conventional zone.
Which brings me to a little crash bug that i managed to introduce because i used a false instead of a true in extract_char and was inadvertently extracting 5500 mobiles from the overland and putting them into ROOM_VNUM_TEMPLE, which just so happened the moment my mortal test char died and was sent there.
5500+ mobiles in 1 room did some funny things to show_char_to_char and well the end result was a smashed stack and me wondering what the hell was going on. Not being the smartest tool in the chest, i set to work trying to debug what was going on and 4 hours later i actually read the code for extract_char and realize that i have my true and false the wrong way about.
Anyone else got a funny coding story they wish to share?
