Magical attacks and some other attacks don't show damage dealed to monsters

Hi! lately I've noticed that many spells as mage or necromancer don't show the damage that they dealed to monsters, i have the "Show damage player deals to monsters" option set to "yes".

For example, if i shoot and arrow to a jelly, i see the message:
"Your Bolt (1d5) (+0,+0) hits the blue jelly (15)."

but if i fire a nether bolt as a necromancer the message don't show the dealed damage, showing only:
"The blue jelly quivers in pain."

I think the damage dealed is very useful and i like to have it, but why not for spells?

Spell damage is more difficult because spells often hit multiple monsters. That said, it should be possible - I will file it as a change to be made.

You just need to do the targeted monster. If none is targeted, don't bother with damage.

Yeah, show_damage is half-baked, that's my fault It seemed like it would be difficult to make the damage display show up well in the messages. The alternative is something like Sil's combat terminal, which would show you a list of all the damage dealt, then it wouldn't have to be in the main message text.
