Bug: Chess games don't clean up properly when one player quits
Danger: High - Crash bug. If the other game player tries to end the game, the MUD crashes.

chess.c, free_game

Locate the function and replace it with:
void free_game( GAME_BOARD_DATA * board )
{
   if( !board )
      return;

#ifdef IMC
   if( board->type == TYPE_IMC )
   {
      imc_send_chess( board->player1 ? board->player1 : NULL, board->player2, "stop" );
      STRFREE( board->player2 );
   }
#endif

   if( board->player1 )
   {
      if( CHAR_DATA *ch = get_char_world( supermob, board->player1 ) ) // Added for bugfix - Findecano 23/11/07
      {
         ch_printf( ch, "The game has been stopped at %d total moves.\r\n", board->turn );
         ch->pcdata->game_board = NULL;
      }
   }

   if( board->player2 )
   {
      if( CHAR_DATA *ch = get_char_world( supermob, board->player2 ) ) // Added for bugfix - Findecano 23/11/07
      {
         ch_printf( ch, "The game has been stopped at %d total moves.\r\n", board->turn );
         ch->pcdata->game_board = NULL;
      }
   }
   STRFREE( board->player1 );
   STRFREE( board->player2 );
   DISPOSE( board );
}


When someone quits in the middle of a chess game, the code for stopping the game via "chess cease" did not have any safety checks against NULL participants. It would then crash the MUD when trying to send messages to invalid targets.
