Hi and §welcome to the forum!

Maybe you have not enough mana, you need at least 20 mana points to cast an Ice Lance.
Or some spells need some time, so maybe you can try to push AND hold the buuton to cast the spell.

§welcome minbor

That's strange are you sure you have enough mana?
It's probably a bug:(

Maybe a reinstall could help, to do so:

First of all, make a backup of your save-games.
(To do so, go to the Gothic-folder, copy the "Saves"-Folder and paste it, i.e. on the desktop).

- Reinstall the game:

Uninstall the game, delete also manually the game folder, restart the PC and install the game new.

Then copy your savegames back.

Before you assume it is a bug (I don't think it is a bug) or consider "reinstalling" the game, make sure you haven't overlooked something. Do you have prior experience in using magic runes in Gothic games?

If not, try again. Raise your mana (maybe by equipping special items like rings or an amulet) and do it again. Some spells work only after some time, so it needs more than pressing a key once. Look for an easy target well in your sight and focus it. Good luck.

How come that noone asks which version he plays?
I got v2.6 and have no problems with Ice Lance. (besides the graphic doesn't look like a lance at all :()

reinstalling the game worked
