recharging magic items

Post by nomad1946 » 13 Jan 2021, 18:27

I can not seem to be able to recharge any magic items. I have cloudcleaver that is partially charged and some filled soul gems, but nothing I do will recharge them.
I have tried double clicking on the soul gem, double clicking on the weapon, selecting the soul gem and placing in on the weapon icon, and the reverse. Nothing seems to work. What am I doing wrong?

Drag the soul gem onto your character like you were equipping it?

Mantar's correct:
  1. Drag and drop the soul gem on your character's paper doll.
  2. Choose "Recharge Enchanted Item" in the prompt that pops up.
  3. Click on the item you want to recharge.
Warning: The probability of success depends on your Enchant skill, so you are likely to waste valuable soul gems in the process. You should rather rest for some time since enchanted items auto-recharge over time.

Thank you, I just could not remember how to do this. This is my first game with openMW and I wondered if they changed something.
