Existing behavior1: Both Contingency (SPWI617) and Chain Contingency (SPWI908) have a targettype of 7 set (self ignore pause) meaning that both are cast instantly and during a game pause. Existing behavior2: Both contingency spells start to cast SPIN905.spl (called "DO_NOTHING" in SPELL.ids) at a delay, which inconveniently breaks the PC's actions.
Expected behavior1: Both spells should have a targettype of 5 (self) set with a casting time of 9 as per their descriptions. Expected behavior2: Neither spell should force the caster to cast SPIN905 (just a bunch of white sparkles).
Suggested solution1: Set the targettype of both contingency spells (SPWI617, SPWI908) to 5 instead of 7. Suggested solution2: Remove the casting of SPIN905.spl from all extended headers of all contingency spells.
