Bug: Crash when mobs attempt to perform some skills
Danger: High - Game crash.
Found by: Valcados
Fixed by: Valcados

---

magic.c, ch_slookup

Locate:
   // Make sure that:
   // (a) ch knows this skill
   // and, (b) ch's level is high enough
   if( ch->pcdata->learned[sn] > 0
       && ( ch->level >= skill_table[sn]->skill_level[ch->Class] || ch->level >= skill_table[sn]->race_level[ch->race] ) )
   {
      return sn;
   }
   else
   {
      // nope... ch doesn't have this skill.
      return -1;
   }


Change to:
   // Make sure that:
   // (a) ch knows this skill
   // and, (b) ch's level is high enough
   if( IS_NPC(ch) )
      return sn;
   if( ch->pcdata->learned[sn] > 0
       && ( ch->level >= skill_table[sn]->skill_level[ch->Class] || ch->level >= skill_table[sn]->race_level[ch->race] ) )
   {
      return sn;
   }
   else
   {
      // nope... ch doesn't have this skill.
      return -1;
   }


The main reason for this causing a crash is because the function relies on the subject being a player - but the code has NPCs also perform skill moves at times and since NPCs don't have a pcdata pointer, the added safeguard is necessary.
