How to report a bug - READ BEFORE POSTING

Post by slpwnd » Fri May 16, 2014 12:41 pm

We are getting many bug reports, please help us by being organized!
  1. Only one bug per report.
  2. Report only bugs from latest experimental version. The current version can be seen in the Releases board.
  3. Report the bug as new topic into the Bug reports board. Watch out for other announcement posts like this.
Search first
  • Use the advanced search, you can limit it to only look in the Bug Report sub-forum, use keywords like: Crash, load, start, inserter, train,...
  • Read the Known issues, if it is there, don't make a new topic.
  • Search the Bug reports board, if your bug has been reported before contribute to that report, don't open a new one.
Make a useful title
  • start with the version number of the latest version YOU had experienced the issue with in square brackets: [0.12.22]
    Do NOT use a range of versions: [0.12.XX] or [12.19 to 12.22]
    If you can later produce the issue in later versions then let us know via comment in the report, do not edit the title for that.
  • two things should be included in the title: What happened and in what context: Crash when setting train schedule. or Inserter not taking coal. Bad: Game crashed
Describe the problem as best as you can
  1. What did you do?
  2. What happened?
  3. What did you expect to happen instead? It might be obvious to you, but do it anyway!
  • Write down the steps to reproduce the bug if you know them.
  • Does it happen always, once, or sometimes?
  • Be precise! When i click with the mouse on Quit in the main menu... Not: When I close the game.

Answer Questions
  • Many times we will ask for more information about the bug or ask you to try various things. Please track your bug report(using bookmarks, subscriptions, or "View your posts" feature) and answer when more details are requested.
  • In this situation, your bug will most probably be moved to "Assigned" or "Pending", so look for it there.
Thank you!
