Only a few days to go before Banished is available for purchase!
I’ve set up some support forums to help with bug tracking and reporting. They aren’t pretty yet, but they’re functional. In addition to being able to get help from me and the rest of the community, the forums allow for uploading crash dumps and save games.
If the game crashes, a small crash dump will be output which you can then submit along with a bug report. This file will show me where in the code the game has crashed and helps to track down and reproduce bugs more quickly.
Save games can also help to reproduce bugs – usually if a problem exists a recent save game will continue to show the bugs after it has been loaded.
My plan is to collect any issues and bugs and list them in a known issues thread, so that everyone can see what issues exist and what I’m working on fixing.
Now it’s time to relax until the game is released, and have nice dreams that the Bug Reports category on the forum will stay empty….. Ha!
