In the latest d0tweak release, you've macroed the summoning removal cap, including a patch for item global effects which is a copy of the patch for extended header effects. The problem here is that you didn't change two instances of "%index2%" to "%index%", so the patch is reading random values based on variables that may have been set by the previous file (this is applicable to both the spell and item patches, by the way). Not that there's all that many equipping effects that do stuff with the summoned gender, but it's nice to be thorough and not read out of bounds.

You may also want to do a global "WRITE_ASCII offset string" -> "WRITE_ASCII offset string #8" find replace at some point (ditto for WRITE_ASCIIE undsoweiter) as there're still a few points where old script resrefs are not being completely overwritten.

More perfectionistic nagging to come!


tnx :-ban
