Spell revisions & IWDEE

I need help. I´ve been trying to install Spell revisions on the newest IWD patch (GOG version) to no avail. Yes I am indeed aware, that SR is not IWD compatibile, but i do know that multiple people, notably @subtledoctor managed to get the main component running just fine. In fact I have just successfully installed few components from Item revisions without issue.

The installation gives me the following error:

ERROR: CLONE_EFFECT does not support file type SPL
ERROR: [#BONECIR.SPL] -> [override/#BONECIR.SPL] Patching Failed (COPY) (Failure("ERROR: CLONE_EFFECT does not support file type SPL\003"))

I am no expert, but I suspect that this might be issue with the newest patch. Anybody knows possible workaround ?
Edit: I am trying to install spell revisions v4beta15

    It involves a lot of patches.

    Separately, I've got a workaround for the dumb #bonecir.spl errors, but I haven't fully integrated it into my custom SR install...

    So I fired up NI, looked up #bonecir.spl and fixed it´s signature. SR than installs without errors. Any idea if the signature was different intentionally or if it was simply bugged ?

    It crashes the game if cast with the invalid signature, so I'd wager bug.

    Okay I forked it and made a few patches. You can try it here.

    This is pretty experimental, I only tested for a successful install. Though I have played through v1.4 with most of these changes, so it's probably okay.

    Note, in a few places there are collisions between SR spells and IWD spells, since SR overwrites files with SPPR numbers starting from where the BG2 numbers end, but IWD has more spells than BG2 and is already using those numbers. (This is not a problem with BG2+IWDification, since IWDification is meant to be installed after SR, and uses ADD_SPELL, and thus uses higher numbers than SR. Installing SRv4 on IWDEE is more or less akin to installing SR and IWDification in the wrong order.)

    In other words, this necessarily involves a few compromises. Resist Fire/Cold gets overwritten by Fire Trap; SR Storm Shield does not get installed, because it would overwrite Moonblade and I love Moonblade. Et cetera. You get the idea. I try to make sure you don't get duplicate Sunscorches or stuff like that - where possible, SR gets preference - and I try to make sure that the best spells from each make it into the game. But in one or two places I had to make a judgment call. (Literally just one or two places, though.)

    You are golden, thank you. Now next step, figuring out Faith and Powers parsing error :D
