Question Can't gain Strength ?

On the topic of Strength... Is there a cap on stats, or have we run into a bug?
I noticed in another thread, that over 18/100 doesn't affect carrying capacity, so I was wondering if that's where it actually capped.

For some reason, our half-elf mage, cl35, isn't gaining any strength beyond 18/70.

No potions seem to have any effect - except Brawn, which only drains some other stat (as it should).
Swapping weapons from Quarterstaff 'Eriril' to Pike 'Til-i-arc' or wearing a Ring +3 will bring it up to 18/100. But then it still gets stuck.

The only changes in the last few days have been the addition of the Amulet of Trickery, and the Leather Shield of Celegorm.

He stays away from dart traps, and I don't remember being bitten or stung by anything that drains. The stat is green, which it wouldn't be if it was damaged.

I'll see if I can get a chracter dump, but he's not in this computer, he's in my husband's laptop (We take turns running him)
I'm pretty sure we're running on version 3.5.0 windows.

18/100 internal is the cap. Then you add/subtract race and class bonuses, then add equipment bonuses. At 18/220 comes true cap, more doesn't do anything else than just gives you a buffer for stat drain. Many abilities max out earlier than that (like HP from CON; at 18/200)

You can see that you have reached the internal cap from main screen; maxed stat is followed by exclamation mark "!". If there is still room to improve it is followed by colon ":".

Adding to this, in later versions, at least 3.5, the character screen shows these numbers in the top right. It tells you the raw number (up to 18/100;lablled Self) then the race bonus (RB), the class bonus (CB) and equipment bonus (EB), followed by the total score (Best).

If the self is 18/100 then the only way to get stronger is to wear bonus equipment.
