#12367, "Bug Format"


          

This is a standard format used in the game industry for a bug entry. I've adapted it for use in The Carrion Fields.

----------------------------------------------------------------
THIS SECTION IS CONTAINED IN THE name AND subject FIELDS OUTSIDE OF THE BODY OF THE POST


Name: (Your name here)

Subject: (Short description of the bug)

Example Subject Line: 'Regurgitate' causes crash when stomach is empty.


----------------------------------------------------------------
BODY OF THE POST

Expected: (In this section you put the expected results of the action(s) as if a bug were not occuring.)

Example Expected Section:

Expected: When I use the 'regurgitate' skill without having ingested anything, I should receive a message stating that I have nothing to regurgitate.


Actual: (In this section you put the actual results of the action(s), exactly as it happens.)

Example Actual Section:

Actual: When I use the 'regurgitate' skill without having ingested anything, the game freezes for approximately 5 seconds and then crashes.


Steps to Reproduce: (In this section you number the steps to reproduce. Be as concise as possible.)

Example Steps to Reproduce Section:

Steps to Reproduce:
1) Log on with an orcish berserker and pass the MOTD screen.
2) Making sure not to ingest anything, use the 'regurgitate' skill.


For non-crash bugs that you can reproduce without harming other people's gameplay experience, please try to reproduce it a few times if humanly possible. This is given below the Steps section and is called the Repro Rate.

Repro Rate: (The number of times you were able to reproduce the bug.)

Example Repro Rate section:

Repro Rate: 4/5

Now for an entire sample report without notations.
