'Cast previously': not sure if working as intended?


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

As part of my SCS install on BG2 (non-EE), I chose the component 'Smarter Mages -> Mages in BG1 cast short-duration spells instantly at start of combat; mages in BG2 only do so if they are created in sight of the PC: v30' (I chose this because the readme suggested it was the author's preferred option).

 

However, I've noticed that most enemy mages I encounter cast some short-duration spells at the start of combat (saying 'cast previously', not part of contingencies etc.). For instance, I am currently in the planar prison, and the Warden just cast the following when combat started:

 

  • [stoneskin], shield, mirror image, ghost armor, fire shield (blue), improved invisibility, minor spell turning, improved haste, and spell shield.

 

I also went back to a previous save and checked on Prebek and Sanasha from the docks, and they both cast a number of short-duration 'cast previously' spells.

 

The difficulty has been manageable so far, but I'm curious as to whether this is how it's meant to work.

 

Thanks!

 

edit: I should mention that I'm aware SCS mages will cast long-duration buffs ('any spell with a duration of more than a couple of hours') regardless of the specific pre-buffing option chosen; but that doesn't seem to cover many of the spells mentioned above.

I loaded up an older save and initiated a fight with Mencar Pebblecrusher's gang, who are pretty clearly not teleporting in from anywhere. The mage, Amon of the Purple Brotherhood, 'cast previously' the following:

 

  • Shield, mirror image, protection from normal missiles, minor globe of invulnerability, shadow door, and stoneskin.

It seems to me that most of those spells should not be cast with the 'mages in BG2 only do so if they are created in sight of the PC' option installed.

 

Here's my Weidu log in case anyone can spy a conflict somewhere:

Since the above posts, I've been playing with the component 'mages never cast spells instantly' part of smarter mages. It seems to be working properly.

 

I just noticed, though, that when I faced Lavok, he 'cast previously' spell shield and protection from fire. These are relatively short duration spells. Perhaps these are intended to reflect innate abilities of some kind, but I thought I'd report it here just in case it's a bug.

 

Cheers.
