I'm running QuickMUD (ROM 2.4b6+OLC+Color, basically) and I'm having trouble adding a new type of weapon. If you don't define a weapon (in the area file) with one of the standard types (sword, dagger, etc) it is classed exotic.

So, I did a "grep -n polearm *" and added a new entry to every case and struct I could find. When i was done, "grep -n firearm *" returned identical entries except the line numbers were understandably a few different. I also incremented the MAXSKILL to 151 from 150 in merc.h.

I thought this would work, but I get:

gcc -O -g3 -Wall -DIMC -DIMCROM -c -o obj/act_comm.o act_comm.c
gcc -O -g3 -Wall -DIMC -DIMCROM -c -o obj/act_enter.o act_enter.c
gcc -O -g3 -Wall -DIMC -DIMCROM -c -o obj/act_info.o act_info.c
gcc -O -g3 -Wall -DIMC -DIMCROM -c -o obj/act_move.o act_move.c
gcc -O -g3 -Wall -DIMC -DIMCROM -c -o obj/act_obj.o act_obj.c
gcc -O -g3 -Wall -DIMC -DIMCROM -c -o obj/act_wiz.o act_wiz.c
act_wiz.c: In function âdo_ostatâ:
act_wiz.c:1377: error: âWEAPON_FIREARMâ undeclared (first use in this function)
act_wiz.c:1377: error: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
act_wiz.c:1377: error: for each function it appears in.)
make: *** [obj/act_wiz.o] Error 1

I don't know where I've messed the declaration. If I comment it out (which would make ostat call it unknown instead of firearms) I get:

gcc -O -g3 -Wall -DIMC -DIMCROM -c -o obj/act_wiz.o act_wiz.c
gcc -O -g3 -Wall -DIMC -DIMCROM -c -o obj/alias.o alias.c
gcc -O -g3 -Wall -DIMC -DIMCROM -c -o obj/ban.o ban.c

gcc -O -g3 -Wall -DIMC -DIMCROM -c -o obj/comm.o comm.c
gcc -O -g3 -Wall -DIMC -DIMCROM -c -o obj/const.o const.c
const.c:85: error: âWEAPON_FIREARMâ undeclared here (not in a function)
const.c:1588: warning: implicit declaration of function âslotâ
const.c:1588: error: initializer element is not constant
const.c:1588: error: (near initialization for âskill_table[103].slotâ)

const.c:1589: error: initializer element is not constant

make: *** [obj/const.o] Error 1

Feedback or a guide would be really appreciated.

I found a few things I was missing due to the case sensitivity of grep, namely defining the weapon class in merc.h.

I'll continue to comment as I either figure it out, go bald from madness, or receive comments. Next one up indicates an issue with excess elements in tables.c.

Can you paste the diffs showing what changes you made?

Used a ) instead of a }. It now compiles. I need to test it out.

Sure Nick. Let me make sure it works and then I'll be glad to post them.

My line number is next to the .h or .c file. This will change a little from the standard if there are multiple edits, but its close enough to follow along. Including previous portion of code for searching/matching purposes.

                case (WEAPON_POLEARM):
                    send_to_char ("polearm\n\r", ch);
                case (WEAPON_FIREARM):
                    send_to_char ("firearm\n\r", ch);

    {"polearm", OBJ_VNUM_SCHOOL_POLEARM, WEAPON_POLEARM, &gsn_polearm},
    {"firearm", OBJ_VNUM_SCHOOL_FIREARM, WEAPON_FIREARM, &gsn_firearm},

You'll have to assign it to something in your const.c file or no one can actually use the skill. I put mine in warrior (which I now call soldier) basics.

     "polearm", {1, 1, 1, 1}, {6, 6, 3, 1},
     spell_null, TAR_IGNORE, POS_FIGHTING,
     &gsn_polearm, SLOT (0), 0, 0,
     "", "!Polearm!", ""},

     "firearm", {20, 20, 1, 1}, {6, 6, 2, 1},
     spell_null, TAR_IGNORE, POS_FIGHTING,
     &gsn_firearm, SLOT (0), 0, 0,
     "shot", "!Firearm!", ""},

sh_int gsn_whip;
sh_int gsn_firearm;

                 || sn == gsn_polearm
                 || sn == gsn_firearm)

            case (WEAPON_POLEARM):
                sn = gsn_polearm;
            case (WEAPON_FIREARM):
                sn = gsn_firearm;

                case (WEAPON_POLEARM):
                    send_to_char ("polearm.\n\r", ch);
                case (WEAPON_FIREARM):
                    send_to_char ("firearm.\n\r", ch);

The definition on 1176 was what I was missing. It doesn't know to look for that element in the table if you don't define it here.

#define MAX_SKILL          151 /* Unsure if needed. It should be. */



extern sh_int  gsn_whip;
extern sh_int  gsn_firearm;

    {"polearm", WEAPON_POLEARM, TRUE},
    {"firearm", WEAPON_FIREARM, TRUE},
