Another error that this time stopped the installation of Smarter Mages.

I’ve seen that error before, but I cannot recall when/why... :(

It’s probably RR, though. It adds 8th-level slots to the table. TnB/MnG alter entries in the table, but that’s all. I have S&S, TnB, and MnG installed with SCS v33 right now, and no error. RR is the odd one out.

This is an error in SCS's code, as it doesn't specify that a function should not be used as it's not defined. As if you fix this for level 8, there's likely going to be the same problem for level 9. This is cause the SCS likely has the original defined as %spell_level_to_caster_level_bard_"x"% ... so, it's just a result of lazy coding.

As usual, people should ignore Jarno, who hasn’t the faintest idea what he’s talking about in 90% of situations.

I think there must be something malformed - or odd, at any rate - about RR's version of the table. SCS doesn't hardcode the highest level of bard spells, it reads it from the file, so it shouldn't be upset just because the highest level has gone up.

Caedwyr: do you still have your install in place and if so can you post mxsplbrd.2da?

The install has been wiped out, but I can repeat the steps that modified MXSPLBRD.2da.  In the meantime, here is the code of that component from Setup-rr.tp2

...and after then installing TnB (TnB increases the number of slots at each (normal) spell level by 2, and then applies spells reducing spell slots at each level by two, and then applies a repeating effect that conditionally blocks those reductions, depending on your CHA score (so if you have high CHA, the net effect is +2 spell slots)):

The table after installing the CDTweaks XP cap remover is identical to the last one (i.e. it doesn't make any changes), so I won't post it here.  There is a lot going on with that table, but in each case it seems well-formed...

OK, reproduced (and identified) on Caedwyr's copy of mxsplbrd.2da.

Here's what's going on: I'm not sure I'd call that file malformed, exactly, but it's got a very odd feature: the eighth-level spell column is entirely zeros. That confuses SCS when it reads in the bard spells: it does a column count on mxbrdspl.2da and concludes that bards have spells up to level 8, and so it assumes that spell_level_to_caster_level("bard"  "8") ought to be set to something (the level at which bards get level 8 spells) but then when it goes through the file, it never actually discovers any such level, and so the variable remains unset. Then it chokes when it tries to use that variable.

I can, and probably should, guard against that in SCS's macro. That said, it probably also points to some oddity in one of Caedwyr's mods, or in the way they're interacting: I may be missing something, but I can't think of a good reason to add an 8th-level column to a spell list but have it entirely blank.

So the instant fix is to simply manually change one entry at the bottom of the 8th-level column from 0 to 1, then install SCS. Weird that the table would look like that, though, since my attempts to reproduce the setup did not result in any columns with all zeros.

I've updated to v33.3, to fix the mxsplbrd edge-case bug, the incompatibility with DSotSC, and the incompatibility with whatever mod introduces T-BONE01.

EDIT: I should note that these aren't all the bugs I'm aware of; in particular, a bunch of compatibility issues with IWDification still need attention. These bugs were (a) readily fixable and (b) critical, in that they'd lead to install-time errors or crashes in some circumstances.
