Alright I think I did the custom aura things right. now I ran into this problem.
Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
0x0807af75 in show_visible_affects_to_char (victim=0x8381588, ch=0x855af10)
if ( victim->cust_aura != '\0' )
pager_printf_color(ch, " &G*%s\n\r", victim->cust_aura );
but if I add in a !IS_NPC ( ch ) at the beginning it works fine, just won't show custom aura's for mobs. I think I know the problem, since the old area files are saved under a different area version they won't have a cust_aura slot. But how would I make them have the slot so it won't crash ?
