Typically if they have an Admin pfile the password you use to log on as Admin is admin.
Normally the password is encrypted in the pfile so entering what the pfile shows would do no good.
If it didn't save then you probably weren't high enough to actually save a pfile yet.
It will only save authorized players that have a power level of 4000 and higher.
If you get this message when you type save
You must have a power level greater than 4,000 to be allowed
to save with out having your name authorized.
Then once you get to 4000 power level you will no longer get that message, but it still will not actually save your pfile until your name is authorized. Guess you could consider that a bug lol.
if you want it to work like that message says
in function save_char_obj
if ( IS_NPC(ch) || NOT_AUTHED(ch) )
change that to
if ( IS_NPC(ch) || ( NOT_AUTHED(ch) && ch->exp < 4000 ) )
Then when it says it should be saving it will.
