The game is awesome btw :P...


I seem to often find myself unable to press any commands! now ive came to the conclusion its something to do with "Locking On" that disables all my key options like spells,fighting and etc the only thing i seem to be able to do is run around..

Anyone experiencing this issue ? Any work arounds ?

thanks guy much appreciated :)
I've noticed this too, especially when using throwing weapons. I'm able to move, but certain commands don't work and I can't move the camera. Usually holding down the R key or hitting it a few times fixes it, but yes, still annoying.
same here "R" key sometimes don't work at all i just have to wait and die lol

ive always got out of the bug by running away or pressing certain combos but i cant be sure its actually doing anything it could just be luck lol

i actually thought it was my batteries dying on my keyboard and bought new ones! haha happy to know it isnt and im not going crazy
Hello it happens to me too, right now I'm stuck because it keeps happening over and over at the same part (when i talk to Loredo about killing the monster inside his house). Before I go in everything is fine, but after I talk to him I'm permanently bugged. It's quite frustrating too because theres about 5 minutes of running around and dialogue afterwards...I've tried 5 times now, keep getting the bug and i'm unable to play. I even tried an older save and going through but it keeps happening.

There has to be something triggering this.
yeah seems to not want to let me block

Keep in mind not being able to block could be because you used up all your vigor (either blocking, or casting signs). Not that that seems to affect what the other posters are describing.
Just got this bug as well, ruining a quicksave because now I can't even move period. :(

Folks report many different instances of lock-ups and lack of responsive with varying causes.

Regarding an event when using thrown weapons, it usually unsticks if you open the quick selection menu and reselect a bomb, dagger or trap.

This is infuriating. How in hell am I supposed to fight if sometimes I keep the block pressed and nothing happens, I try to throw things at my enemies and, guess what ... nothing happens.

When is the fix for this coming out?

Only when CDPR is aware of the issue [I'm hoping they are at this point] and deems it a priority.

I've had multiple instances of being unable to block while having more than sufficient Vigor, being unable to swing a sword, being unable to cast a sign, etc.

There are a couple other threads about this. It's not all in your heads. :p

I have played enough to have somewhat gotten used to it. And I am vary aware of not getting in a corner where a misfire would be deadly.

Some encounters are very unforgiving, though; and that is when I am reminded that this needs to be tweaked a bit.

The best explanation I have seen is that animations are running through to end before a new action can be done. Rather than interrupting what Geralt is doing, or queing up a keystroke, the game says, "O.k. Finished that arm sweep. Would you mind repeating that request again?"

The thing with Throwing Weapons seems a little different, however. The block and signs usually respond after a second click. Throwing just locks up entirely.

This just happened to me... Threw a samun(sp) bomb and afterwards the only thing I could do was run around - couldn't even rotate the camera with my mouse. Had to save, exit the game and then re-start. How annoying, esp. on an insane playthrough!
