Thanks both for thinking with me. I just tried to simulate the problem again, and I think I know what's going on .

If I cast Healing and the response is that I'm not hurt enough, everything is fine as long as I wait patiently until the magic is built up again, and then switch to Fireball. Then it works. But, as I'm not very patient , once I see the message, I immediately switch to Fireball, before the magic is built up.

You will no doubt understand this better than I do, but it seems to me that the program does not remember the switch to another spell; it just remembers that the spell should not be cast.

Only, this doesn't explain why, after receiving Fireball, it would only work once I played a couple of screens and killed a couple of monsters.

By the way, Ric, the 'T'key doesn't do anything.

Do either of you still require a saved game? I noticed that the effect was gone, once I restored it...
