I just looked through a list of bug fixes and improvements for the 2.5 patch at http://blog.beamdog....on-25-beta.html , and there don't seem to be any new functions for the toolset. The ones for Torment, like Tint Screen etc., also won't make it to the BG games. Right? I just want to know if there is something I should look forward to.

Some pst actions did. And a spell flag to allow casting more spells while in sanctuary.

Whoa... cool. So is that fully externalized? I.e. totally controlled by this flag? Or is the original list of permitted spells still enforced behind the scenes, and this just allows us to add more?

I must have missed that in the review of features, though I don't think so. Which effects from PST made it in?

It is BIT9 of the spell flags, just above "Hostile".  It works similar to the "Hostile" flag - any spell with the new flag will break sanctuary when cast.  Spells flagged "Hostile" will still end sanctuary as well.  It has no affect on whether the spell breaks invisibility.

Currently the only spell that has been updated is Sunfire.  All other offensive spells without the "Hostile" flag are still castable without ending Sanctuary.

That's because Laszlo's done the complicated bits, and now I need to do the rest. :)

Why is this Hypnotoad video so popu... ALL GLORY TO THE HYPNOTOAD.
