This function will return the state of the configuration option basic_skill_check in battle_athena.conf. It returns 1 if the option is enabled and 0 if it isn't. If the basic_skill_check option is enabled, which it is by default, characters must have a certain number of basic skill levels to sit, request a trade, use emoticons, etc. Making your script behave differently depending on whether the characters must actually have the skill to do all these things might in some cases be required.

Return Values
