That's the highest number TEC can handle. Try selling an item for 99999999999999999999999999999999999999 sens to someone. It'll say that number you posted.

Actually, that's the highest floating point number in most programming languages. 2^31 is what my calculator says it is but I'm not sure why the programmers picked such a bizarre number (I originally thought it was 2^32).

It's 2^31 - 1

One less than 2^31. It's the highest signed number, unless there's a typo in there.

2^32 - 1 would give you twice the range for something that can't turn negative, but it would mean using unsigned arithmetic and choosing between signed and unsigned is one more place to make a mistake.

Well, this is how floating point numbers work.

There's 3 parts to the floating point number.

1. The sign bit. This determines if the number is negative or positive. You can by pass this, by having an unsigned float, but this usually is not advisiable, because it's another place to add in error.

2. The Decimal Place. This is a number that is interperted to where the decimal is.

3. The number.

The range of this is something that I don't know.

The second type is an integer, which takes up 4 bytes of data. This number can go between -2^31, and 2^31-1.

I'm not sure about the ranges of floating points...

hmm...

I always found these a bit odd....

1) Go to open a tent flap. A tent flap is locked.

2) say to bank clerk Inventory
Run halfway to toga.
A bank clerk tells you your inventory.

3)You fall unconscious.
You paddle at <whatever you want to>

4)My shredded shredded shredded shredded shredded shredded shredded musd-encrusted breeches.

I've been killed/knocked out twice by bandits due to 4 different bugs. Curse those bandits. I know plenty of other bugs from the past, but I'm too lazy to bring them up. Except the stave-wielding osecar. Curse him.

Start to make a character, think better of it, and exit. Go IG with the character (only went through a handful of questions in the character generation).

>look me

You see an average person. It is wearing some breeches, a tunic, and a large sack.
It's hands appear to be empty

This bug still exists.

Also works as

Person offers you weapon

You use weapon

Put weapon in sack

try to get weapon

Weapon is to close to other person

Invisible Guards

You arrive at a small wooden room. A young man with jug ears (unconscious) is here. You are facing west. You see an arch to the east and a small wooden room to the west.

app man
You move toward a young man with jug ears.
You are stopped from advancing toward a young man with jug ears by a light-skinned brigand with a wicked smile.
A young man with jug ears is not close enough.

kill young
A young man with jug ears is not close enough.

l brigand
You don't see any "brigand" here.
