Pro. Magic Energy Portrait Icon?
« on: August 23, 2007, 07:54:37 AM »
I noticed that Ascension changes the Portrait Icon for Pro. Magic Energy (SPWI606) to a Spell Shield icon. Which is incorrect IMHO. It would seem that this is an easy mistake to make as NI has the wrong description for Spell Shield and Pro. Magic Energy icons.

Would it be possible to fix this icon...Just seems silly that G3 are working on bugfixes, when ascension introduces them.

Where does Ascension make that change? Can't find a reference in TP2.

Here's the snippet of the ascension tp2 which copies it's spl/copy directory to the override. Within the spl/copy directory is the offending SPWI606.SPL file.

Hmm. You have definitely caught an install issue. Less of a bug and more an oversight.

As the mod notes, most of those files don't need patching, even though some type of modification may have been made to them. Without the developers around to tell us why those files are there, someone would need to look at each and determine the changes. I won't.

Barring a new version rollout, the approach I would take is to determine which if those files are part of a standard install, then remove those from /spl/copy that are not touched by the Ascension before installing the mod.

I've got my own weidu'd 'modpack' which I've used to restore the correct portrait icons, but keep the Ascension modifications (whatever they are).

Just thought I'd mention it.
