    That would be a LOT of work. Each spell has different visual effects, so you would have to be very particular and strip them out of each spell individually.

    was just assuming there maybe was one :) like Dragon Age had one after people got tired being wrapped in Bubbles and stuff , ohh well flashy party it is then :I

    Actually, I suppose this might be doable with Avery broad brush. Just look in NI and find all of the effects used in those flashy spells, and the patch all spells with the DELETE_EFFECT macro to remove those effects.

    There would probably be unintended consequences - you might find that you actually wanted some such effects to remain. But if you don't mi d that and really just want to eliminate all of them, then it could be done in about 12 lines of Weidu code.

    BG2 Tweaks / Tweaks Anthology has a component for removing the two most annoying buff animations:
    • "Invisible Cloak of Mirroring / Spell Trap and Physical Mirror"
    SCS also has components for removing two buff animations, except it only removes them from items that give those effects while worn, not when they're cast as spells:
    • "Remove blur effect from the displacer cloak"
    • "Remove animation from the Cloak of Mirroring"
    Furthermore, SCS also has this one (which does affect spells):
    • "Cosmetic change: stop Stoneskins from changing the caster's colour"
