Description

Steps to reproduce issue:
  1. Load attached save file in BG:EE
  2. Click the trapped chest at x=137, y=285

Observed behavior:
A Lightning Bolt is sprung from the trapped chest, and it passes through the controlled character, doing no damage to him.

Expected behavior:
The Lightning bolt should do damage to the controlled character as it passes through him.

Notes:
This bug also happens with the Lightning Bolt spell when cast by wizards, though not from every angle.

Internal report: #38685

Have just seen it myself in the ver. 2.5.17.0 (BG:EE) with the Wand of Lightning. The repro is tricky, as it happens not from every angle.

Thanks!

Even enemy creatures can miss you when casting this spell. The screenshot shows the battle log with Davaeorn casting the spell and no damage/save for the player character.
