Is there any fix for the locked camara bugs?
Been playing for a bit now and I am getting annoyed at all the camra glitchs where it locks up and you cant do anything. A big one that is repeatable is the mosaic puzzle, It keeps locking up after you put the first peice in.

Yep, there are unofficial patches for this. But i don't know if they're compatible with the steam version.

Under normal circumstances Version 2.01 should contain the camera patch. But somehow the Gold Edition doesn't include this one.

Try patching SpellForce 2: Gold Edition manual to 2.01 with this one:

Perhaps you should read the whole thread and don't cry for not finding the patch... two comments above your one, for example...

No, I agree. If there is a patch can someone post it? Better yet, why hasn't steam updated the game?

what is up with that camera thing? It says press middle mouse button or INS to change camera view, but that doesn't do anything. Help?

Solution for this and other camera problems is here: http://forum.spellforce.com/showthread.php?t=48404

"For example in the Magnet Stones: after clicking the quest spot a window appear with the question if you want to set the first stone, click with the mouse on the answer and then click rapidly spacebar, as fast as you can, this MUST not work at the first time, try it with you save game again."

It's a little tricky to press SPACE in that exact moment, but reload if you fail, and you can complete that quest if you wish. This camera bug will occurr in other moments, so you have to eventually use the console code... by doing this your charachter will be no longer visible by enemy units, so you have to talk to someone (quest givers) or change map and everything should be fine again.

BTW: The patch works fine, but ONLY if you never entered the map in which the bug occurr. So install the patch 2.01 and you should be able to avoid this problem in the future maps (or load a savegame in which you never entered the map you are current in).

After getting stuck on the mosaic puzzle also, I looked into it a bit and found out that the camera bug -- which is game breaking if not resolved -- exists only in the Gold Edition, owing possibly to the fact that when Shadow Wars and Dragon Storm are installed together, they wind up sharing incompatible files. I'm very fond of the Spellforce games, I think they're excellent in every way, so I ended up buying the game downloads separately at GOG.com and they've both been bug free. The games have since been pulled from the GOG library because of some obscure licensing issue, and Steam only offers the Gold Edition package, but Amazon still sells the downloads of the individual games for $10 each.

As far as the patch goes it's available here, a fan made patch posted at the developers' website (to show you what an orphan this game is):

The trick seems to be to install the patch before you arrive at the trouble spot, ideally before you even launch I'd imagine. For me the camera glitch first appeared in the Fireforge map, in the levers puzzle with Professor Twiddle, but the real game breaker is in the mosaic puzzle a bit later in the game. I'd be interested to hear from anyone who used the patch to successfully complete the game.

As I said, I completed the main game (Gold Edition) here on Steam, first using the space bar trick and then by installing the mentioned patch ;)

But now I'm experiencing no voice sound in the first expansion. :/
