Yes, It's probably his Hitpoints causing a range check error. I have e-mailed you as well.

lenny thanks for replying here, it's helpful for other people who run into this issue.
currently on datastream bbs i am having problems with people boosting their stats so much issues like this are cropping up and maint is bombing.

i have changed the user's stats and now maint is locked up. and now it finished with an error code after running for
10 mins. /sigh
i'll sort it out.

another example on why i hoped usurper would have been released GPL and fixed by current doorgame authors.

if you dont mind i'll post your reply here to help other sysops.

Hi Jason
Thanks for writing.
I see the players HP is 74,652 when they enter. This is a big clue. The Supreme being's Strength is
calculated for each encounter with a player. In this case it is in the order of 74,652 times a random number..
Not that we have ever seen the actual maximum values possible, but I suspect that far exceeds the MAX, and thus crashes the program. Likewise, the Supreme Being's Hitpoints are calculated by the players strength value times 9.
Using the SYSOP's Editor, the maximum values I can enter for the player are 30,000. My test player with a strength and hitpoint value of 30,000 will always crash as you have described. However, If I lower the Players strength to 10920 level, he IS able to meet the Supreme being. In my research, the highest player strength is 10,920, and I have had Hitpoints to  46,722.  Above this amount will crash the program.
I suspect that the program is crashing due the hitpoint level, not due to the Strength level, due to the users log.

Further from the error.log file we can see:
------------------------------------------------

FATAL ERROR #201 :Range check

I hope this helps.
