Hi, everyone. I've encountered a problem with Dungeon Siege 2: Broken World recently; one that's come on for no apparent reason. Powers which target enemies or terrain have completely stopped working; although they recharge and display the normal area-of-effect highlight and target cursor when activated, they simply deactivate when I click. I've tried reinstalling BW, reinstalling DS2 (both while backing up my saved games), trying the game without my savegames in place to see if they are the problem, and, more recently, buying a different set of discs and reinstalling from them, all to no avail. I'm not sure what the source of the problem could possibly be, but I'd deeply appreciate any help or advice.

Choosing between Elemental Orbs and Chain Lightning for every combat mage isn't that entertaining, you know.

Update: It seems that targeting powers now work if I activate them and right-click on an area of terrain! I've also managed to turn a terrain-targeting power into one that happens on an attack (like Aimed Shot), though I'm not sure how. This is only getting stranger, but it's definitely the next best thing to fixing the bug altogether.


Edit: Not sure of its significance, but when I double-click a targeting power, cancel it, and click it again, it just happens somewhere near my character.


Also, when I switch the game's mouse button controls, targeting powers work normally. I'm thinking this means that the mouse button-setup for targeting powers in particular has been switched for some reason, thus my problem. Does anyone know how to change this?

You're certain that it's actually a bug? I've used right clicks to fire off powers for quite a while.

Sounds like everything is working as designed / intended...

Well, that explains everything. I'd stopped playing for a while before the problem started; I must have simply forgotten that powers cancel when you left-click on terrain, rather than right-click. I'm very sorry for wasting everyone's time.
