Bug Reports

You can report bugs either by joining the Cinders Discord or by editing this page (you need a Wikidot account to edit the page).

Before reporting a bug:

  • Not all bugs are caused by the mod, check if the bug you want to report is from vanilla first.
  • Check if the "bug" is really a bug, and not something the mod changed to be like that (search in the wiki or ask in Discord if you don't know about it).
  • Check if the bug has already been reported previously in the wiki or Discord (to do a search in Discord press ctrl+f while in the bug-reports channel, then enter the search keyword/s).
  • Make sure you are using the last playest version before reporting a bug.
  • If you are using one of the the Nexus releases, check first if the bug has been fixed in the current playtest, if it isn't then state your mod version with the report (to see the current playtest fixes and changes check the changelog here.
  • Provide as much information as possible about the circumstances around the bug (area where it happens, equipment you were using, does it happen always under the same conditions, etc.).
  • Do not report unhandled exception error or thanks for playing Cinders crashes unless they always happen under the same circumstances, in this case explain as much as possible the conditions around it.
  • Remember there is a plethora of bugs that can be fixed or not, just reporting a bug doesn't mean it will get fixed, there are cases were this is not possible.

Big Bugs

  • Bosses randomly dying when getting invaded during co-op sessions/online.
  • Enemies not reacting to the player and standing until killed.

  • The AI of some conjurations break in certain areas, making them stand still when they detect a nearby enemy.
  • The Dark Wraith in Highwall ignores conjurations. Normally enemies in idle state (e.g. some Hollows) will be ignored by conjurations but will retaliate upon attacked, but not this Dark Wraith.
  • After reaching the broken bridge area in the catacombs Yoel abruptly dies.

  • Casting homing soulmass/homing crystal soulmass/wrathful orbs/affinity removes the fog from the curse of obscurity.

  • Siegward doesn't join the fight against yhorm at the end of his quest.
  • You can get stuck between the wagon and the stairs in the undead settlement https://discord.com/channels/634519927331749898/634520030998036500/839934165490729040
