Same here, I have had no bugs that need to be reported. There are some but not enough to make a bug report. I will just stick with the PC version, there are LOTS of problems there :wink:

i have a glitch that has happened to me many times before with my mate.

1. i howl and he super slowly stalks in a direction (not following me) and he just keeps walking in a strait line even if he walks to the end of the map he is still slowly stalking nothing and then i run far away and he still there. it is incredibly annoying especially when i need food for my pups. and i can't stop him or fix it because he just keeps stalk/walking, i have even tried to push him but he is still walking. i howl again still walking. it's like he has become a zombie wolf.

2. i chase and kill a coyote and my mate runs in circles around it and refuses to stop.

i was at first thinking that i just picked a mate with brain damage or it was only for this one wolf but it kept happening and happening and it became impossible to finish the game because my mate never came back to me and the pups.

Those are very, interesting, glitches and I am sure they are annoying, though I believe there is another place to discuss bugs/glitches here - http://www.wolfquest.org/bb/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=31150

OMG! The EXACT SAME THING happens to me too!!! at first it was with my wolf Moon, and her mate. I already had a den at bison peak, but no pups yet. I had just killed a cow elk, without any help whatsoever from my mate as usual, and as I started to eat, my computer screen image suddenly did sort of what a t.v. screen does during a storm: image breaks up, you see bright pink, green or blue spots, then goes black. When the image returned like 30sec. later, my mate suddenly stopped running circles around me and started slowly walking toward "upland meadows?" with this blank look on his face, just different from what the faces usually look like. So I followed him, but once he crossed slough creek and still wouldn't stop, I stopped and howled. He stopped and howled too, but then kept going until he hit the "invisible wall" at the edge of the game world. AND HE STILL WOULDNT STOP! just kept walking in place. I closed that game, and reopened it, but again, as soon as I started to eat off a carcass, he did the same thing over again. SO ANNOYING AND IT TICKS ME OFF!! same with the coyote thing, but he stops when I reload the game of take a pup away from the den site and drop it.

Please avoiding talking about glitches here, and please discuss it on this thread so it is easier for all of us. :wink:

I have a quick question,
I am unable to find my output log, HOWEVER, I am MORE than willing to take screenshots of what is happening. I myself am a common victim of the connection glitch, and could test it, but can I substitute screenshots for the output log?
Thanks.

I'm not any administrator, but I believe the output logs are extremely important, especially with connection issues...
Are you simply unable to find the folder in which the output log is located, or are you unable to see the output log displayed in the correct folder?

To see the output log, run the game as administrator, try and re-create a glitch then close the game, finally open up the game folder and click: Wolfquest_Data. :) Hope that helps.

The contest has ended and we're close to making a decision! I can't tell you names yet, but I can tell you we will be adding more than one beta tester. Thank you to everyone who entered- even if you don't win this contest, you still helped make us aware of some of the glitches/bugs in the game and hopefully many of them can be fixed for the next version of the game!

I think I'll post a new topic to announce the contest winners and lock this topic when that topic is posted, FYI.
Thanks for the avatar, Silverness!
