Bugs, crashes & errors.
Hey there!

While we're trying to read every single thing posted here, it might be nice to have one big place for people to post bugs, crashes (with system specs) and errors. That place is here!

We'll be right on top of any problems, and try get them out of your way ASAP.

Some advice for reporting bugs:

- Use the search bar before you create a duplicate report. It makes things easier for everyone.
- Try to give detail. If the game sometimes crashes randomly, describe what was going on in the game at that moment.
- If you can find a way to consistently reproduce a bug or crash, that would be most helpful.
- As JW said, you may want to paste your system specs, especially for crashes.
- If a GameMaker error box comes up (it will have an 'Abort' button), paste the contents.

Is it a bug that I have incredibly fast text speed? As in, the opening intro text and dev picture speeds by at the speed of light. Amazing game by the way :happymeat:

Other bugs I came across:
-Camera became stuck and jittery, was fixed by going to the next level.
-Music abbruptly stops when quick restarting (only boss music plays) and is fixed by playing a new game
(I'm on Win7)

Big Dog will self engage almost unfailingly because of fire traps

Thing I've encountered:
- On Windows 8 the game will sometimes crash either when I shoot a shotgun in a small area or when there are a LOT of explosions at the same time (loads of sounds activating at once), I believe you're already aware of this though.
- The Steam overlay is resized really terribly and as a result making screenshots through Steam also doesn't really work.
- On the main menu, when you press the statistics or credits buttons, you can see all the other buttons disappearing but they still work, so if I double click where a character's portrait normally is, the game starts.

- While I was alt-tabbed checking out the community hub and posting here (~15 minutes) I went back ingame, chose robot and the game crashed as soon as the level loaded. Windows 8.
- When Big Bandit (and I guess Big Dog as well) activates and you get the little cutsceneish thing where your camera focuses on the boss, your weapon still follows your mouse cursor which looks a bit silly when everything else is frozen :P
- Music sometimes doesn't play after you use quick restart

I spawned right next to Big Dog one time, needless to say it was an unpleasant and very short encounter. :rage:

Not necessarily a bug, but why on earth does Esc close the game? And why is there no options menu that I can see?

The Steam overlay doesn't work for me, it just makes the screen a bit darker. (Gray overlay but nothing in it)

I'm running the game on windows 8
I5 3570k

The music doesn't seem to loop for me, it only starts playing again when i go to a different world. (from 1-3 to 2-1)

+1 for game crashing with Windows 8, i5, nvidia 650M.
like someone else said, crash seems related to shotguns in tight corridors and multiple explosions. But now, it's starting to occasionnaly crash right after loading a level too... :/

another problem that should be a quick fix: it seems like the music only loads when you begin a chapter, so if you die in act 1 and reload by pressing R, you're stuck with no music until you get to act 2

Lots of crashes with Steroids. A few are:

-Starting the game (happened twice)

-Picking up 2 shotguns

-Shooting 2 grenade launchers at once

-Shooting a bazooka with second weapon being shotgun (happened quite a few times, actually)

-Shooting a triple machinegun/shotgun with Steroids at the same time

-Loading title screen after left-clicking post-death on level 3-1 with Steroids

Running windows 8, i7, Nvidia GeForce 765M, 16GB ram

EDIT: Getting lots of crashes with chained explosions while using Melting w/ Throne Butt powerup. It's a shame too, it's such a good power.

My PC sucks but the only noticable flaw i've had with textures were, that the textures are blurry (Kinda)

Very laggy during the dark level, seems like its running in slow motion. The light area sometimes flickers/glitches from explosions. Also lags/runs slow when multiple explosions are on the screen. I've also noticed the guns disappear from the characters hand, usually with steroids. Music stops after boss battle and doesn't restart until a new level. Music also stops when using quick restart fuction.

a6-3400m, radeon 6720g2, windows 7, 8g ram, budget gaming laptop. It can run most recent games at medium/high and older titles at high graphics settings. A 2d shooter shouldnt strain my system.

Very fun btw, thanks.

Every run i had so far crashed in like 5 minutes of gameplay (or i died before), i know it can't be my computer specs because i have GTX680 and I7 3820. It doesn't happen when i do something especific,it just happens after some time playing (it doesn't require to be a ''full-action'' time,sometimes it crashes when i am just running). I don't really know what to do.

Edit: after reading some more comments i think i should say that i use win8 and i have 6gb of ram.Was playing it some minutes ago and guess what? crashed after a 5 minute run.Not mad because the game is in early access but man i am so curious about how it is going to be to finish this game XD

I experience mounting slowdown the longer I play the game. It sometimes happens during a run, but oftentimes becomes more pronounced after I die and start anew, whether through the quick replay or just going back to the menu. I never had this problem with the Mojam version, so it must be something new. 8 gigs of ram, i5-750, HD7870, and win7

Quick restart after death on Difficulty 11 I ended up keeping the crown robot with new character, I was the plant if this matters. Only mannaged to get the crown 3-4 times but this first time it stuck around after death. There was also another time I mannaged to random restart as the alt-skin robot (the purple one)

Im having audio issues. It's pretty hard to explain but the music just sounds like an M16 from call of duty over and over again, thats about the best i can describe it.
