in BG2 after using the chromatic orb spell I'm unable to use the "cast spell" button to do any further casting. I'm also unable to use the f7 keyboard shortcut to cast. The only way I've found to be able to cast spells again is to rest, after which casting spells in enabled again (until chromatic orb is used again that is)

    I tried this out again and noticed that after casting this spell, Imoen (or who ever casts it I'd guess) is being stunned which is why she is unable to cast other spells afterwards.

    So the bugreport is that the stun effect affects the caster instead of the target?

    That sounds like a good way of summing it up.

    Isn't this a problem of the original game? IIRC one of the fixpacks fixed this (or was it only blindness?).

    I don't recall this being a problem with the original game

    Chromatic orb causes caster blindness in unpatched games.
    Please check your spell, all stun/blindness effects should have pre-target as target type.

    This works for me, i set Imoen to level 5 (so her chromatic orb will cause stunning).
    It stunned the ice mephit. (there are probably saving throw problems, and F7 doesn't work either, but stun appears to be working).
    Also, the stun effect vanishes quite fast...

    Hmm, I'm not sure how to check what version spells file I have. How would I go about checking this in Linux?

    I've had this problem every single time I cast chromatic orb (I've tried at least 10 times)
