The other thing you might want to watch out for if you're on PS2 is the
llimits.h definitions. Long is 8 bytes on PS2 but the instruction length
and number type are/can be 4 bytes (why waste?) so:

/* type to ensure maximum alignment */
typedef union { double u; void *s; long l; } L_Umaxalign;
typedef LUSER_ALIGNMENT_T L_Umaxalign;



or change the union code... There are a few other longs in the code
that've changed to ints as well.

True. You shouldn't be doing much of the AI apart from high level
control in script so it shouldn't really be an issue.

I'm afraid it's tea time now [rumble rumble]. Maybe later.
