General problems

  • none of the cinematic spells that are supposed to pause the game seem to do that.
    • ^note to devteam: for most spells, that is a major improvement :)
  • RESEARCH a lot of area effect spells dont seem to allow targeting the ground
    • which and did they in the original? Eg. fire and ice can only target one even there …
  • casting any spell uses an ugly pixel waterfall effect instead of the stylish casting flashies™
  • RECHECK are screen colour fades still annoyingly wrong?
  • RESEARCH seems like effect timing mode “delayed” and “delayed duration” worked differently in pst and are causing unwanted delays … check each problematic spell to see what type of effect timing it is using and note it
    • In original PST, all spells are instantly casted
