    From the forge page it says

    and
    "Sick of coding your own items, spells, feats, or racial features in Fantasy Grounds? Pick up the 5e Automatic Effects line of products on the DMs Guild, which do all this for you instantly when paired with this Equipped Effects Extension! "

    If it isn't intended to replace spells with the AE ones and AE ones are intended to be manually selected with no extension interaction, it is fine as EE still does a lot on its own.
    However the description on forge suggests that it will handle it by replacing the FG default version with the AE version.

    I want to make it very clear, I still believe the extension is great value without any spell interaction. But it could be made clearer if replacing spells with AE versions / populating a character sheet with AE versions isn't a feature of the extension just to avoid people like myself thinking that something was broken when they get the default FG spells and nothing updates to the AE ones .
    Howdy. I understand where your confusion is. Because spells is in that list, you thought a spell would be automatically added which is the 5eAE version. So you're reading that sentence as "Spells are automatically added". Unfortunately, that's not one of the thing it does.. The data is there for all of the spells to provide effects (beyond what the core books provide). Spells are a "choice" by the player, and different for every class. So you have to drag the 5eAE version of a spell from the spell sidebar to the character sheet. When you use the character wizard to pick your spells, they come from the default books and don't get replaced with the 5eAE versions. You'd have to swap them out yourself.

    This information is based on the current way that the character wizard (which has undergone changes) currently works and how it prioritizes which books to match features and spells from. So I'm just talking "out of the box" here.

    Technically (though this wouldn't be a good idea because it's unmanageable) if you have a feat which was named the same as a spell, it would load the spell for you.. I don't recommend that. Just wanted to clarify that it's doing matching (prioritized), not replacement.

    Another note if using CW via character creation or LVL UP button:

    They have added in their own abilities to add into action tab automagically recently when you commit your change. These of course will be hardcoded linked to their things causing anything that EE would find in a named match to be ignored (as EE will only add in something to action tab from abilities tab if the name is not there - which if CW puts it out there - it will be).

    I'll see if there is an easy way to make this do the right search matching in CW override - but that thing is changing so frequently I'll likely just let it be. Only work around would be to replace those links with Aridhro's stuff - or delete those action tab entries (and group they create) and remove the PC from the CT and put it back in (EE will then put what it finds in its search).

    V 1.43 - Feature - support new Module Priority Level so that is displayed in the module activation page entries. There are 3 levels (1-3) or none that can be set. Currently its a first come first server name match. Which works well unless you have supplemental modules that have conflicted names. Not a problem in Aridhro's data as he names his so the order comes out the way he wants them (they will get hit first before the things they supplement). But in other places (and for future) you may have many supplemental mods with lots of name conflicts. This module priority level lets you pick which modules get preference. If any module is set with a value it will keep searching for name matches until it finds the lowest priority match. So if I have PHB (SW) and Tasha's (SW) I can set Tasha's as priority 1 and insure any name conflicts we pick that one to resolve it. Likely I won't use this myself as the first come first serve works with my supplemental data already (I only use PHB). But if you have a lot of supplemental modules then this might help you. It only records loaded modules in the local DB under <module_priorities> with a <ModuleName> and a <ModulePriority> for its data. Any time the onInit gets triggered for the manager (app startup) this data will be cleaned up based on what modules are currently loaded (removes any that are not). It also only records ones that have had their module priority set. The option provided under "Module Priority" is "Display Module priority level (1-3)" defaulted to "off". This is only for display of module priority level in the module activation window. To use it for name resolution another flag under "Equipped Effects" is provided called "Use Module Priority" defaulted to "off". This will make the name matching I do for spells look at the priorities to resolve name conflicts instead of first come first serve.

    Yup, you got it. But yeah, honestly a minor issue for me. Just means I need to put in a bit more effort, as like SilentRuin does I restrict my players to phb base for 5e.
