Bug Report Guidelines

Postby Z903 » Sat Mar 22, 2014 11:41 am

Timber and Stone has a new bug tracker! A bug tracker is a dedicated tool to help us collect and organize problems with the game. Up until now the forums have been doing an OK job of this but lack features such as merging bugs or marking duplicates. It also enables us to get accurate reports on how many bugs there are to fix so we don't miss any. I hope you all take the time to use this tool and make Timber and Stone the best game it can be.

timberandstonegame.com/bugs/

PLEASE NOTE:
  • Bug reports from user modified games will not be accepted
  • If possible, uploading a save game using the file attachment process is extremely helpful

How to use the bug tracker
1. You need to login or register. This tool has a separate login system so you will most likely need to create a new account. If you forget your credentials, you can reset your password using your email address from the link on the login page.

2. You may need to select the project "Timber and Stone" from the "Projects" drop down menu in the top right of the site.

How to report a bug
1. Search the bug tracker for similar bugs before you post your own. Chances are someone else has had the same problem you are having. If there are more details you are able to add; add that information to those existing bug reports.

2. To report a new issue, click on “Report Issue” in the main menu bar (shown below.)
