    (1) When you say you are using the new Temple.DLL, what did you install to add the new Temple.DLL file? In other words, what was the name of the file you downloaded to use the new Temple.DLL?

    (2) And, according to what you said, your game worked before downloading a rar file, extracting and adding the extracted files, right?

    Do you use ToEEFE? (yes/no)
    If yes, do you have ToEEFE set to clear the map cache? (yes/no)
    Did you open the data\scr folder and run the "delete_pyc.cmd" file? (yes/no)

    The Temple.DLL in this version of Co8 5.0.1 MOD update is okay to add and use. Download and install this update package, including the Temple.DLL file, all of it - not just part of it. And, remember, delete the PYC files and empty the map cache.

    -> Co8 5.0.1 MOD update

    Add everything from this update to your installation, the data folder [and its subfolders and files] and also the modules folder [and its subfolders and files].

    possibly a wrong version of the No-CD file or it could be corrupted ... and btw, technically, it's a Fix, not a crack.

    Ok, finally been able to provide some feedback.

    I have been using Pishella (Wiz 1 / Sorc 1) and the spell-casting fix seems to work fine, no issues there.

    The book in the Inn hasn't caused me a crash.

    And the bugbears get smacked when they try to drink potions :D

    So all my testing so far confirms this stuff works - well done Spellslinger! :clap:

    I'm not sure what you are referring to. I just consoled the charisma of a level 1 bard up and the spells per day increase with the bonus. Or do you mean that you cannot use the bonus spells until you can actually cast that spell lvl? Are you supposed to be able to do that? I was wondering the same thing when fixing bonus spells for memorizing caster types.

    A question to the rules lawyers: Your caster can only cast lvl 1 spells. Can you fill bonus spell slots for spell lvl 2+ that you get for your stat with lvl 1 spells? Or are bonus spell slots only usable when you can actually cast that spell lvl?

    *EDIT*
    Obviously that can't be, since in that case a non-specialized wiz 1 with INT 18 could cast 5 lvl 1 spells, right? But TOEE actually gives you bonus slots on spells you cannot cast yet, albeit at -1. Hmmm.

    They only work when you can cast that spell level. A first level Wizard with 18 Int has 2 1st level spells per day (1 regular and 1 bonus from his Ability score.)

    However, some classes, like Bards, get a 0 in their spells per day column (rather than a -). This means they can cast a spell of that level, provided they have bonus spells of that level. So a Bard with an 18 Charisma can start casting 4th level spells at 10th level instead of 11th.

    Yes, I thought so. Thanks for the confirmation. But this brings me to the question, what is wrong with the bard bonus spells? I upped the charisma to 30 and got tons of bonus spells. Could anyone clarify the problem?

    Tangential topic: my bard just went level 6, he didn't get to choose any new spells. I mean it went to the new spells screen and there was no slot, so I just clicked finish. Is that right?
