Spell memorization order is still honored but the black borders don't match after spells are lost. I'm linking up one of my tickets that have repro steps for the issue.

#2 Updated by Anders Svensson almost 3 years ago

  • File 999001215-LevelDrain.zip added
  • File Mage.jpg added
  • File Priest.jpg added
  • Subject changed from Spell memorization in alphabetical order to Border for memorized spells should be correct if level drained
  • Description updated (diff)

Original report:
In version 2.x Spells are memorized in spell slots in alphabetical order; also, when spell slots decrease the rightmost spells are lost. Since there is no way to choose the spell order, it is hard to prevent spells which are alphabetically last from being lost.
Previously, user had full control of spell memorization order which was useful in all situations where spell slots would change, such as: level drain, simulacrum spells, bonus spell slots from items.

Please add back a way to control spell memorization order or revert to the old way of memorizing.

#3 Updated by Petr "Pecca" Havlicek almost 3 years ago

The spell memorization order is not honored. It is always ordered alphabetically instead of by time of memorization. So when a "Burning Hands" spell is memorized it goes before all the memorized spells that start their names with "c" etc... The desired behavior is to have the spell memorized last to be on the latest free memorized slot, so the user can choose the order of memorized spells. That is the original bug report and has been misinterpreted.

#4 Updated by Anders Svensson almost 3 years ago

Yes, it is ordered alphabetically but the game is aware of the order the spells were memorized in. Since I misunderstood the original ticket feel free to make a new one with clearer repro steps.

#5 Updated by Petr "Pecca" Havlicek almost 3 years ago

Okay, I see what you mean. But instead of assigning black frames to correct spells, much cleaner solution would be to remove the alphabetical sort.

#6 Updated by Anders Svensson almost 3 years ago

That might very well be the solution when a developer look at the problem since that would be the easiest solution I think.
