A warning to all of those who might play this patch: applying the Rippler Bugfix will cause glitches in the game. I've never experienced the Rippler spell's heinous effects on my own, but applied the fix to my copy earlier today for its own sake, only to discover the game freezing when I attempted to cast Death or use the Bum's Rush attack, and I've confirmed that adding the patch somehow causes these spells to glitch. Also, for some reason, enemies are not encountered on the Solitary Island. I never touched this aspect of the game, and it seems easily fixed and does not exist in earlier versions of the project. Ironically, a friend pointed it out to me as a positive boon, since the island made getting the Paladin Shld very easy. This problem will be fixed in a later version.
I would appreciate any other major oddities brought to my attention, so I can make note of them.
