because computers dont understand negative numbers, the total sum of available digits to store in a given memory allotment is subsequently divided in half, the max value for an int 4.2 bil, so the halfway point means max positive number that allotment can understand is 2.1 bil. i would have thought the people writing the game would have picked up on the lingo right off....

Almost. An unsigned int has a maximum value of (2^32)-1=4,294,967,295, whereas a signed int has a maximum value of (2^31)-1 = 2,147,483,647, because one bit is used for the sign, so the ratio is actually 0.49999999988358467815 :mrgreen:

That's not the point though. Up to and including level 399 the XP required to get to the next level is 55*CL^2, where CL is your current level. Based on that formula you should be able to get to level 489. But you can't get to level 401 because at exactly level 400 the formula no longer applies, and the required XP for a level up is set to (2^31)-1 = 2,147,483,647.

Exactly but I speak programming and I said that at the beginning. I went to college for it. I an not interested in how things are supposed to work. I wanna know how they do work.
Andors trail v0.7.1 has a Max level of 400 and therefor a Mac total of skill points of 100. I have quite literally been right all along.

Well I guess nobody will reach level 400 anytime soon without cheating or hacking. ;)
And you don't need 100 skill points because you'd be simply overpowered.

(Not to say a char like this woudl be good for testing :twisted: )

As of now im at 400 but with the update coming i can reach a even higher goal. For me, im ocd so if im able to get there i want to. But if you go over the 400 level then your total xp displays a negative value of how much you have now. Only flaw with it is i can get the ogeth (sp) crystals more. Because certain creatures have respawned. To some this may be Overkill but for me its buiding my char to be god like

Ugh! This old thread! I remember it well. To (hopefully) put this to bed, maximum XP was not limited by either the limit of an unsigned int, or a bug (as such), or any deliberate cap. It was a quirk of the way XP was calculated that there was an overflow at level 401, but that's not the limit of an unsigned int. I changed the way XP is calculated for 0.7.2 so that the numbers are identical, but it will not overflow until you reach level 489, when an unsigned int does overflow (i.e. the max level is 488). That does not seem like it's that much more, but the number of XP required per level rises exponentially, so to go from level 400 to level 488 requires 1.81 times the number of XP. Increasing the limit beyond 488 would be a big PITA, so it's probably not ever going to happen.
