    Thanlantyr, how far into the game are you? That's not a bug I've seen yet, but my guys are only up around level 6. Has it been happening since the beginning?

    The next patch is scheduled for mid-december. It will probably fix a lot of stuff.

    I don't have a patch. Not even the "installer bug" patch. And still I managed to finish the game. It was a torture, I tellya, many exiting to windows without apparent reason, many freezes, flags disappearing from maps, NPCs get stuck in a stone so I must reload, etc etc.

    But such bug never happened to me.

    Besides, what enemies are you talking about? Some creatures are not ment to be attacked.
    Spells? Have you checked if your spell counter is not 0 (zero)?
    Also, are you sure you're targeting an enemy? The problem I had was when "sprites" of two creatures were one over another, I couldn't easily select the one in behind. Is that perhaps a problem?

    Couple of times I've been in combat with one group when another group hears the combat. The "new" group is shown on the map, but has not entered the fray. Since they have not "rolled" initiative, you cannot attack them (the target cursor's rings are gray instead of red).

    Once the next round starts you should be able to target the creatures. BTW, area affect spells will kill them off just fine.

    As far as the cure - I dunno.

    Nope that wasn't it. :(

    Has anyone found a fix for Thalantyr's problem? I am having the same issue. I can attack monsters with area affect spells, I can move my party anywhere I want, but I cannot directly target a monster for combat (I can fireball them but not magic missle them) and I cannot engage them in melee or missle combat. Likewise I cannot target any party members with buffing or healing spells.
    Not on a dell.

    Thanks for any help. I was enjoying the game before this. I even started a new game and it starts with the problem.

    I have the 1.4, I think, patch. Do I need to install them in order. I just put the last available patch on.

    Yep, you need to install them in order... and check to be sure that your game isn't already pre-patched to a certain version before patching. If you've messed up the order a reinstall of the game would probably be a good idea.

    So I ran into the same issue. I can AOE with spells. I can open doors and break items, but when I target an enemy for a an action, I can't follow through with the action. I can't attack them with a melee weapon. I can't cast a spell like magic missile. I have probably 40 hours into the game. So I don't really want to start over. However, I did try starting a new game and have the same issue. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the game and still have the same problem. I have all the patches installed. Any ideas?

    You won't like it, but although it was almost 10 years ago, this is what I recall fixed it.
    1. reinstall the game over your current install
    2. start the game and find out what version is now installed.
    3. Download and install all the patches in order starting with the next patch after whatever version is installed in your game. If your game comes up to 1.3, start with 1.4. If you have 1.0, do them all. Doing it in order and not doing patches already installed is important.
    4. Delete your existing saved games and start fresh. You can use your old characters.
    I know you won't like step 4, and if you wish you can instead use an archive program to stick them in a compressed archive and delete them for easy extraction. Feel free to try your old save game before step 4, but I recall a different bug that required step 4 to resolve. It was the one that would cause all the doors in the dungeon (or at least the Main Hall, I can't recall, and I may not have gotten past the Main Hall yet when that bug happened) to reset, but NOT the treasure including the required keys to open said doors.
    The targeting bug may not need step #4 to resolve. I'm only positive about the one that locks all the doors without restoring the keys.
