Wall of flame spell does no damage

Question

Description:

Wall of flame spell does no damage either to foes or allies. It just doesn't work and is completely useless. It used to work properly before. I cannot give you the specific patch number though because I had a long break. When I came back it just stopped working after updating the client.

 

Steps to Reproduce the Issue:

Launch the attached saved game, move down the corridor to encounter enemies and start fighting. Choose any mage (Isandrod or Aloth) and cast the Wall of flame. There is no any damage dealt from the Wall of flame source.

Hey goobar,

 

It appears that your save file is from an older build. I tested this problem on the current build and it is working correctly.  Please make sure your game is up to date and let me know if this is still an issue for you.

 

Thanks for posting and keep me updated!

Thanks for the response Aarik,

 

I checked the build number. it seems to be the newest avaiable - 1.0.6.0617. I even ran the "verify integrity of game cache" in Steam. I got the message there is 1 file that will be reaquired. Unfortunately, the problem still occurs. I even tried to remove all the saves and put the old ones from 1.0.5 to let the game convert saves again. The Wall of Flame still does no damage.

I believe what Aarik meant is that the issue stems from the saved game having been converted from a previous version. In a new game the issue doesn't occur.

Ok, so how can I properly convert the old save? Obviously I don't want to loose my progress. Any script or something like that?

You have my sincerest apologies, but unfortunately there is no way to convert the old save. The only option is to start a new game. I know you would like to avoid that option, so my suggestion is to not use that spell. 

 

I will however make a suggestion to the programmers about being able to convert the old save. I can't make any guarantees.

 

Thank you for your feedback!

This spell is one of my favorites. I really enjoy using it. I'm sure I'm not the only one who is affected by this bug. Probably many other users suffer as well - they are just silent. I want to fully enjoy this game - one of the best I've ever played. I'm a developer as well and I do understand that such bugs can happen and can be hard to debug. But I cannot accept this workaround. Telling users to resign from some part of the game only because there are problems converting saves after update is not very professional. I'm sure your developers can handle this situation. I preffer to wait for the fix. In case this bug is unique (I doubt it - it probably affects many users) I can try to help you debug it or apply a horfix using your instructions.
