Bug: Grouped combatants are not updating kill totals properly
Danger: Medium - Experience point exploit
Found by: Halcyon
Fixed by: Halcyon

fight.c, damage

Below:
      else if( !IS_NPC( ch ) )   /* keep track of mob vnum killed */
         add_kill( ch, victim );


Add:
      /*
      * Add to kill tracker for grouped chars, as well. -Halcyon
      */
      for( gch = ch->in_room->first_person; gch; gch = gch->next_in_room )
          if( is_same_group( gch, ch ) && !IS_NPC(gch) && gch != ch )
              add_kill( gch, victim );


Basically what happens here is a PC groups with some other people. They go off and kill something, over and over again. The kill count for the PC doing the killing updates as expected, but his group members do not and therefore it becomes possible for the group members to gain more experience than they should from the repeat killing.
