Help! My character won't attack!

Discussion in 'BG2: Throne of Bhaal (Classic)' started by Deleted member 11044, May 13, 2008.

  1. I have come across a rather strange bug.

    My main character just randomly lost the ability to attack...when I click for him to attack he just stands there. He makes the exclamation that he is attacking and I see the circle around his target flashing as to indicate he is attacking. But he does not, he just stands there, indefinetely.

    i have tried resting, reloading, restarting, everything. I have no idea why this happened. I did use shadowkeeper to change his avatar from mage elf to mage human, and when i load to before i made the change, he is able to attack. however, that was very long ago, and this just happened recently. however, when i load back to the save game where i had the original avatar, he is able to attack. i find this is very odd, as i changed the avatar of another character and she is still able to attack. also, i tried changing the avatar back to the original one by use of shadowkeeper but it did not change anything. also, when i shapechange my character, he is able to attack, but when i make him his original form, he no longer can.

    its frustrating playing with a main character who just stands there when you tell him to attack! he can still cast spells but not engage in combat. i do have a large number of mods installed, so that might have something to do with it, but all this time they have all been working flawlessly until i have come across this (seemingly) unrelated problem. i have not experienced any major bugs, until now.

    has anyone else encountered this ? I am running a 2.8 Intel Celeron with 512 MB ram. I have ToB installed, and updated to the latest offical non beta patch. I have a GeForce FX 5500. here is a list of mods installed, in order.

    He doesn't carry too much?
     
  3. no, he is not encumbered..although i noticed his number of attacks has been set to 0, it should be 1, tried changing it back with shadowkeeper, no luck..

    Have you ever been polymorphed into a squirrel? (wild surge or polymorph other spell) that effect sets your attack to 0, so it may be your residual bug. Try CTRL+R your character. (after enabling cheat console)
