Hang on, did you change the calculator to other job ? Because doing this will make it calculator not hit allies using black mage spells and stuff...making it even more overpowered. (But im not 100% sure about this...)

I was just randomly playing through again, and a Priest in the Thieves' Fort used Cure on one of my units to heal Miluda, but then Miluda walked away to attack someone else and the Priest ended up healing me s:

Thing was though, if the Priest had moved back 1 square and over 1 square, she wouldn't have had to use it on my unit.

I was just playing through 1.3 like 2 minutes ago and an enemy NPC used Ice II on 1 of their units, and 1 of mine.

It may not just be that its your patch.

Only thing that I could see fixing this is either making spells to target 1 square (noonononononononononono) or "hit enemies/allies" or "target enemies/allies".

I am seriously contemplating the enemy only targetting option for basic offensive spells. I know it removes an element of "tactic" from the game, however, if the enemy AI is too stupid to understand it then it gives the player an unfair advantage anyway, and my focus is not to help the player, but to help the AI. That being said, I think this might be the right approach.

AI behavior is hard stuff. :(

QuoteI am seriously contemplating the enemy only targetting option for basic offensive spells.

I guess it's safe to stick with that..
They will still hit allies..

Yea Zozma brother, fix this AI bug. They dumb as shit except the Assassin at Desert. Kinda smart at least. She will use Allure/Seal at higher levels at least.

And the Sorcerer will use his Melt/Holy spell on high levels also. He spam Haste at start but when he comes in close, he usually try some Slow or maybe a Melt. LOL Melt... I like MeltDown!
