After installing SCS 34.3 version, casting summoning monster spell instantly crashes my game. I have re-installed the mod, re-installed the game, I use no other mods. It didn't crash after SCS was removed, but it is crashing when it is installed. Where can I find crash details to provide in this topic to help me figure out what exactly is happening?

I'm assuming this is BGEE (no SOD).

1st things 1st: Reinstall without the following and test:

~STRATAGEMS/SETUP-STRATAGEMS.TP2~ #0 #1500 // Include arcane spells from Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition: 34.3
~STRATAGEMS/SETUP-STRATAGEMS.TP2~ #0 #1510 // Include divine spells from Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition: 34.3

As far as I know, it was only Monster Summoning I. I noticed in a fight, another mage cast Monster Summoning II without a crash, so it pretty unclear what is going on. The game later crash after he assumingly cast another Monster Summoning spell but I can't tell which one.

Other summoning spells are fine, including using the Wand of Summoning and Icewind Dale summoning spells.

Specifically, which spell (or spells) was crashing the game? And did you have SoD installed, or was this a straight BGEE game?

I mentioned this a while ago in the feedback thread:

Monster Summoning I (but not II or III) causes a CTD because two of the creatures potentially summoned dw#ms1oa and dw#ms1ow have the wrong entry in their animation field (4294967295), should be 59440 and 59392 respectively. Not that I use this spell, except from a scroll, but enemy mages can achieve a Pyrrhic victory by crashing the game with it.

Those .cre files can be fixed with an editor rather than completely uninstalling the IWD spells component.

Polytope: what version of the game were you on when you got this bug?

Classic BG2, SCS version 34.3, OS is Windows10 64-bit.

I suspected it was an animate.ids compatibility thing with the original game, otherwise surely some EE players would've also noticed it by now?

As I discovered later, it was also fixed several versions back in IWDification and I had completely forgotten. So folks who were following the (current) recommendation of sourcing IWD spells from IWDification weren't running into issues.

Hi, was a hotfix ever made for this? I am running BG1EE, no SOD, and when I run into the Red Wizards of Thay my game always crashes when one of them tries to summon monsters. Using the comments in this thread, I removed the IWD arcane spells and tried the fight and it ran fine - no crashes. I don't run IWDification, what would that do to install Arcane and Divine Spellpacks (That's the fix you were mentioning, yes?) midgame?
