Bowmaster Winter Storm Beta is now playable if you haven’t noticed. The game is constantly evolving with new updates every Friday (so far so good). Due to the frequency of changes it is not always possible to fully test the game and sometimes new features cause new issues. It is because of play testers like you that report new issues (see contact form) we’re able to find and fix bugs before the game is fully released. For this LostVectors is truly grateful. However, if you want to be even more helpful here’s how.
Download and install the debug version of the Flash player for your preferred browser (warning: read on before installing):
This works similar to your normal player but in the event of an error a popup window will appear with detailed information about what caused the problem. You can then copy this message and send it with your bug report.
WARNING: If you choose to install this debug player your eyes will be opened to how often in general Flash content has errors. This means that you may see error popups when visiting other sites with Flash content. With the normal Flash browser plugin, any errors that occur are simply swept under the rug for no one to see. The application fails silently and in some cases the bug may not have a significant impact on overall functionality. These runtime errors can be the fault of the developer not handling error events such as loading errors, or it can be caused by traditional runtime bugs like null pointers.
If you choose to install the debug player you can always reinstall the normal flash player if you wish.
As always if you decide to report a bug then please be as specific about the situation when the bug occurred along with any instructions on how to demonstrate the bug.
