1. In daggerfall, I can’t seem to cast offensive spells. Shock and
Fireball to be exact. I can doubleclick spells like heal and they work.
When I double click fireball, it pops up to the view screen and says push
button. I push every button on the keyboard but nothing.
2. In dungeons, when I stand below an opening in the ceiling and try to
levitate, I move so slow, I cant levitate up fast enough to make it through
to the next floor.
3. When there is a downward corridor filled with water, my character seems
to get stuck. I have even tried crouching while using the page up page down
but nothing works.
4. Is it just annoyance that I can not jump high. Sometimes just trying to
make it up a small platform is an exercise in hitting the jump button a
hundred times to get into climb mode.
I have the 213 patch.
Thanks for the help

You need to push the right-hand mouse button to cast these spells.
What is your processor speed? In my experience, having a processor
speed above 450 can cause all sorts of weird behavior in Daggerfall.
You may need a slow-down utility like MoSlo or slow.com.

1. Center the mouse on the screen and left click.
2. Not sure what you mean here it’s a little vauge.
3. Two thoughts: Your character’s swimming skill probably stinks and
check your total weight, both make swimming a pain. Make sure you
don’t have any walk on water type spell on you.
4. Work on your jumping skill by holding down the jump key while
moving through cities, wilderness whatever, do the same with the run
key. Also don’t run up to the platform and try jumping on it at point
blank that never works. Back-up and get a running/jumping start, hold
down run and jump keys, and if you time right you’ll hit the edge of
the platform and it’ll give a nice boost to you jump.

Thanks again for the help. I fixed the swim issue by enabling the speed
cheat. (also comes in handy for burning location to location in towns) I
also figured out the spell issue. I think I would like to try slow.com to
fix any other issue but I cannot find it. Does anyone know where it is?
This is a great game, I think I like it better than morrowind. It definitely
seems about 10x larger. I have put about 30 hours in and I can tell I have
barely scratched the surface. Still have not tried arena though.

I guess you’re one of the few who appreciates gameplay over graphics. I feel
the same way with DF

I found it on one of the Daggerfall webpages. I don’t remember which
one, except that it had a screenshot of Chickenhead on it. I don’t
have it anymore, unfortunately. I have gone back to playing
Daggerfall on my old computer and didn’t need it any more.
It is a great game. I have been playing it on and off for several
years and still have not done everything. I haven’t even gotten all
the quests yet.

Haven’t seen a reference to the infamous Chicken Head for quite some time.
Thanks for the laugh. I’d forgotten I’d ever even created this image. As I
recall, it was the head of a chicken superimposed on my old wrestling photo.
