I recently altered the classes on my MUD. After doing so, I began to receive strange output from score. I was receiving this:
combat            Level: 10    Max: 200   Exp: 40500        Next: 140733193438032
piloting             Level: 1     Max: 200   Exp: 0            Next: 140733193388532
engineering       Level: 1     Max: 200   Exp: 0            Next: 140733193388532


Which, I knew this wasn't correct because level was still outputting the correct values. To do some debugging I added a line to do_score to make it output as follows.
11|40500|50000) - combat            Level: 10    Max: 200   Exp: 40500        Next: 140733193438032
2|0|500) - piloting          Level: 1     Max: 200   Exp: 0            Next: 140733193388532
2|0|500) - engineering       Level: 1     Max: 200   Exp: 0            Next: 140733193388532


The format at the beginning is nextlevel|current exp|exp needed. It is the EXACT same code as later in the output. What could possibly be causing this strange output. I've been debugging for some time and I can't figure this out.


Also: if I type save and then score the output will be correct - but only that time.

Ok even more bizarre. This was the code for outputing levels:
         ch_printf( ch, "%-15s   Level: %-3d   Max: %-3d   Exp: %-10ld   Next: %-10ld\r\n",


If you change Next this:
         ch_printf( ch, "%-15s   Level: %-3d   Max: %-3d   Exp: %-10ld   Next: %d\r\n",


It outputs correctly. So why would level work with the 10ld format and not score?
I am vastly confused here.

Something may be uninitialized, or initialized wrong. Or it could be attempting to put the wrong type of data in and overflowing.

Why would level work and not score? When its the exact same code?

Like I said, something could be initializing improperly in score, that is initializing properly in level, have you double checked that everything is identical, or run it through valgrind?

Actually both functions should be using %d instead of %ld because the exp_level() function in SWR FUSS returns an integer, not a long. So do_score AND do_level are both wrong, and it's probably just one of those bizarre flukes that it hasn't been caught before.

It must be one of those weird fluke things. I didn't even think about the %ld. I switched both over to %d. I think I just got so frustrated that the code was the exact same that I missed that.

At one point, I made score actually call do_level and it was still messing things up. But when called alone it worked. Meh, I don't know. Not something I understand but its working now. Thanks.
