I guess, I mean I'm just looking for fog of war.
Here's the comparison in classic:

This is probably an EE issue then, I'll check it out.

The same spell, but since it needs to have a saving throw for enemies, and no S/T for friendlies, internally it calls 2 different subspells. It's a common technique in IE. And you do have to handle them differently, otherwise enemies will just randomly break out of the sphere.

I would recommend to get one spell (magic missiles or something) to do what you want manually with NearInfinity, then think about codifying it.
NearInfinity, spell file format, spell effects list.

WeiDU documentation is here.
Generally, you just take someone else's code and tinker with it until it does what you want. Here, for example, you can start by taking tnt code, and throwing away everything but this single component.
You do need to undestand file format to write the modification code, so I'd get familiarized with NI first.

So what you're saying is I edit all the spells I want to cancel the effect with near infinity, then put a copy of them in a folder.

Then copy your tpa and edit it to run the mod install, just to understand it all clearly?

(Also I think I would just do Aoe spells and Summoning spells, your grievance made sense now I think about it , so I would probably just do fireball, Horrid wilting ,DM, etc , just the loop holes)

You can go about it however you wish.
I only suggested that you start small, edit a spell manually to get the sense of it. I didn't suggest editing them all manually.
No, it's not as simple as putting the files into a folder. You'll need to understand weidu, spells, effects, etc.

I can't reproduce on EET, so you'll have to investigate on your own.

Even though you couldn't figure out the issue @Magus , talking to you actually helped me to fix it.

The issue was from a component of Olyvntweaks that makes infravision into an actual functional spell that does have a utility ingame.

As I said I don't have any knowledge of how to mod or anything (still trying to understand it all to close those loop holes) , but you pointing out that your tweak focuses on visual range, made me think that since that mod states in its readme that it too affects visual range also, then it could be that.

And so it was.

Thank you for answering me through this and responding to me, as you have done.
