Darkmancer successfully added mixed magic in his Black Prophecy mod by auto deploying a unit from each race, when loading a battle but then auto killing the sprite, which initialised the humans/green-skins/undead magic books and allowed his normal armies to then have any spell from any race, without crashing.

If you have any free time available, could you investigate if it's possible to turn on the magic books automatically by detecting a possible address location, please Aqrit. No rush but would be cool to have one day.

Thanks

I don't know a good way of doing this, but this works...

Increment the ref_count of SPL* sprites in that table.
Increment the ref_count of the books in the table at VA: 0x004D1A40
Code:
struct // sizeof 0x34
{
    DWORD ref_count;
    char name[32?];
    unknown
}

 <0, 'MT_None', 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0>
 <0, 'Battle', 28h, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 28h, 2, 2, 1, 1, 1, 2, 3>
 <0, 'MT_ItemMagicMesh', 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0>
 <0, 'Bright', 14h, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 14h, 14h, 1, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0>
 <0, 'Ice', 10h, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 4, 4, 4, 4, 0, 0, 0>
 <0, 'Green', 10h, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0>
 <0, 'Dark', 10h, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0>

the CTL op add_spell by itself does not load up necessary "stuff"

If I remember rightly, one of the members of that structure controls the shape of the banner?  Obviously only for unit sprites.
