Confused Is revelation broken?

I've been trying to cast revelation and every time I do, it crashes the game. Is it just me, or is it just broken?

That spell is not in the vanilla game that I can recall. It's probably been added by some mod and I have no idea what it's even supposed to do.

That would make sense. It must come with Mytheology as it's the only mod I have.

Thanks for pointing out my mistake

Also, Revelation is a Holy ritual spell and those have made the game crash for the last few patches.

I use it without problems (I don't use Mytheology, but I copy-pasted it into another .dm file). Heed the warning in the spell description -- do *not* monthly auto-cast it. Only use the SHIFT-C cast command with it.

Wierd, have you been using the most recent patch?

I have.

The comments in that section of the Mytheology file talk about the problem being not with rituals in themselves, but with auto-casting them. I don't know how true that is generally, and I don't know about other holy magic rituals, but I do use Revelation extensively without the slightest hitch. (Though I've learned to be very careful not to accidentally Shift-M monthly cast it!)

The only change I've made to the entry is to change "#pathlevel 0 2" to #pathlevel 0 1", though I can't even remember why I did it (I never had problems with crashing, though, except with the aforementioned monthly casting). I don't know if it makes any difference, but I thought I'd note that.

Wierd, It crashes a lot on my end. Have you ever found something with it?

Is this also the version you are using?

I think the problem is that you cleaned up the code, when one or more of those #'s shouldn't be removed (I don't think the --'s ahead of the #'s make any difference?). Here's what I have.

Code:

Works like a charm.

I'll test.

Keeps crashing here.

Using CBM 1.6 btw.
