We now have a publicly accessible instance of Bugzilla at http://ja2.discusrock.org/bugzilla/ . You can create your own account with any valid email address, and start entering bugs. I know that it takes some time to get used to a new procedure, so there are no plans to stop taking bugs from the Bug Report email address or directly from the forums. But Bugzilla gives you a nice standard way to make reports, upload savegames and screenshots as attachments, and most importantly, search existing bugs to check if the bug you want to report has already been reported, and what the fix or workaround might be.

We (the Development Team ... well, okay, probably mostly me Very Happy ) will be starting to enter existing bugs from the email address and the forums into Bugzilla as we can. If you have any problems using, or suggestions for improving, our Bugzilla, feel free to drop me a PM here.

[color:#CC0000]<font size="">PLEASE TAKE NOTE:</font>[/color]

A good bug report is straight to the point:
Quote:
1. Bug description
2. If bug cannot be easily reproduced on a new game, post the savegame.
(customized Ja2_Options.INI as well if savegame cannot load with default Ja2_Options.INI)
3. Detailed steps to replicate the bug
4. Version Number
(for development version aka DepressiveBrot's exes, it's the JA2_####.exe number. Number shown ingame for development version are seldom up-to-date)
5. Any mods running on top of 1.13?
If it's a graphical glitch, screenshots will do.

Coders/Modders need to be able to reproduce the bug on their side before they can do something about it.

a word to the community:

I hope not only we developers but also the community will use the BugZilla!
To clearify:

  • EVERYBODY can report Bugs there.
  • Improvement requests can be reported as bug with type "enhancement". (pls.see below, too)
  • Also Bug votings are theoretical possible, but JAPH should tell us more about this function, 1st.

Only the "Gunz I like to see too #1001" - thing is currently not planned to be hosted there. This is because just counting guns anybody has seen somewhen is not very impressive. Discussion should take place here, first. This is also valid for most other improvement suggestions. Please continue discussing every idea, as used before. Then elect a representative who will report this idea to us.

Please, be so kind not to report any fantastic idea you got (like 3D engine, quad-Screen-Mode and so on). As already said, such ideas could be very valuable, but should be discussed with other mates here, first.

with best regards,
Sergeant_Kolja

We now have a publicly accessible instance of Bugzilla at http://ja2.discusrock.org/bugzilla.


Sorry, JAPH accidently included a colon into the link, so it does not work on some browsers :wb:
Please click here, this works better

@JAPH, can you please edit your topmost post, remove the colon and add a slash. I am in doubt all users will scroll down to my posting Wink

Yep, it sure did. My hosting sysadmin upgraded the OS, not realizing that it would upgrade Bugzilla, too, and my modified pages are not compatible with the new version. I'm fixing it now. Sorry for the delay, I was away visiting relatives for Christmas.

Never let sysadmins touch applications they don't know. He tried to fix it for me, now it's worse. I will make fixing this a priority for my morning (US Central time zone), but I can't get to it tonight.

Again, many profuse apologies for the trouble.

can we please have it set up better? like http://bugzilla.icculus.org
- you can browse bugs _at all_
- you can browse _without setting up account_

for the first one
" The Words field cannot be empty. You have to enter at least one word in your search criteria."

you need to enable searching with no words entered (just displays all bugs with selected status), for example the ioquake3 ones :

http://bugzilla.icculus.org/buglist.cgi?query_format=specific&order=relevance+desc&bug_status=__open__&product=Quake+3&content=

im not sure the second one, but afair it didnt let me use search without an account

anyway heres the link to current open bugs (after you do the first step and enable blank searches) :
http://ja2.discusrock.org/bugzilla/buglist.cgi?query_format=specific&order=relevance+desc&bug_status=__open__&product=1.13%20Mod&content=

great to have a bugzilla

Thanks for the feedback, I'll keep it in mind. But I deliberately set it up this way for the protection of the developers. Since Bugzilla requires a valid email address as its username, freeing up browsing bugs by allowing searches without search terms (effectively displaying all bugs) allows people to browse the developers' email addresses as well. I especially don't want to allow any viewing without creating an account, since that would allow search engines to index the site and spread developers email addresses even farther. It's bad enough that they have to reveal them when they accept bugs. By the way, if anyone knows a configuration tweak for Bugzilla that would remove the display of email addresses, I'd love to hear it. From what I've seen so far, that change will require a bit of coding. Not a problem since Bugzilla is all perl, but finding time is always a challenge. Obviously, I haven't done that yet.

If, on the other hand, I hear an outcry from the community to allow browsing, and I hear from the developers that they don't mind losing their privacy, I'd be happy to change it. So far that hasn't happened.

To display a list of all bugs you have to do a search with regexps and enter "." in search field.

useless indeed. You have to register to view anything. If you want to prevent the page being robotized, add an appropriate robots.txt. If you fear manual spam, obfuscate the emails.

Using robots.txt relies on the bot honoring it, which the less savory ones obviously won't do. I could certainly obfuscate, but that again will require a code change, and if I'm doing that much, I might as well remove them from the display entirely. I intend to work on that shortly.

Anyway, it isn't just the crawlers and random browsers that I want to keep from viewing the coders' email addresses. Not all coders are comfortable with registered users being able to see their addresses. It's not that they fear some of us overwhelming them with unwanted contact. It's simply a desire for a certain level of privacy that I think they're entitled to. I'm not trying to be difficult, I'm just trying to protect the coders who have brought, and continue to bring, this wonderful game to us for no personal gain. A little respect for their privacy seemed like the least I could do in gratitude.

So, as I said before, to achieve more usability and still protect privacy, I'll start work on removing the assigned user from the bug display. Until I complete that, please continue to use JaggZilla as it is, knowing that your inconvenience is helping protect the people who gave you such a great game.

http://ja2.discusrock.org/bugzilla/buglist.cgi?list=bug_list works too. You still have to log in though.

The product field would be a good replacement for the assigned user field in the buglist.
I wonder why http://ja2.discusrock.org/bugzilla/describekeywords.cgi is rather empty.

I have the changes worked out on a test system now. I hope to put it into production sometime today. I've used user "real name" instead of email for the assigned field, so people can at least bother the assigned coder on the forum, if they feel strongly enough to do so.

Sorry so slow, RL has been throwing me a lot of curves recently.

More updates. I'll be taking JaggZilla down at 12:00 my time, which is 0600 GMT if my memory of time zones is correct. It should only be down for a few minutes. This should be the final fix for hiding email addresses, which will make it possible to allow empty searches and reading bugs without logging in. You'll still have to log in to add or change bugs.

Took a bit longer than I thought it would, but I'm done. I've now enabled empty searches as well, since browsing bugs should no longer display email addresses. I can't get it to work from quick search boxes on the home page and in the header, but empty searches now work on the search page. '.*' searches from those "Quick Search" boxes still work, though. I'll try to enable empty searching from there too.

With this done, I'm much more inclined to allow anonymous read access. I'll get back to y'all on that one.

Er, correction. It looks like '.*' searches from the quick search boxes never did work - my mistake. Still, I'll see about making them accept empty searches.

I've come to a conclusion about JaggZilla I should probably announce, so here it is. We will not make anonymous access possible in the foreseeable future. As a compromise, I will try to develop an anonymously accessible page that lists all bugs, but without the ability to get more detail on any of them. That way you can at least see the bug titles without having to log in.

If I may ask, what is the objection to creating an account and logging in? Even the coders have to do that. Even I have to do that. I hope I don't sound too argumentative, but why shouldn't the users?

@Kermi: I'm sorry about that, and I'd like to fix it. Could I ask you to try again and tell me what happens, and I'll look through the server logs and see what I can find out? In any event, if it fails, I'll be happy to create an account for you manually.

The last bit goes for everyone. If you can't create an account normally, drop me a PM here, or send me an email (my email address is in a few links right there on the home page), and I'll be happy to create an account for you.

This is a brief tutorial on the "whining" feature of Bugzilla. If you'd like to be automatically notified of new bugs that are assigned to you if you're a developer (that word includes non-coders on the team), or create other kinds of automatic notifications, you use whining. Note this currently is enabled only for the Dev Team. If everyone else wants it, and you can give me a good reason, I'll turn it on for all users. If the server starts to send too much email traffic, though, I'll have to turn it off again. The guy who's hosting JaggZilla for me doesn't mind incoming traffic at all, but he really doesn't want a lot of outgoing traffic. Besides which, you can and should get notifications of bug changes by adding yourself to the CC list for the bugs you're interested in.

On to the tutorial. On your home page, click the link at the bottom of the page next to "Saved Searches" called "My Bugs." That's the default saved search everyone gets, but you can't use it for whining, so you have to create a new one. When the "My Bugs" search result list comes up, copy this saved search by entering a new name (let's call it "New Bugs Assigned to Me" for an example) under the "Remember search" button, and click the button. Your new saved search will appear next to "My Bugs," click on it. When the "New Bugs Assigned to Me" search result list comes up, click on the "Edit Search" link. What you'll see is the list of search parameters. Under "Status," select "New" and "Reopened." Don't select just "New" in case someone actually uses Bugzilla the way they're supposed to, and reopens a previously closed bug instead of just creating a new one. Wink Under "Email Addresses, Bug Numbers, and Votes," make sure only "the bug assignee" is checked. Then click the "Search" button to execute this search. When the search result page comes up, just click the "Remember search" button again, the name you gave this search should already be in there. Congratulations, you've created a saved search for all newly opened bugs assigned to you.

Now go to the link at the bottom of every page called "Whining," next to "Edit." On the Whining page, click the "Add a new event" button. Put whatever you'd like in the email subject and text, then click the "Add a new schedule" button. Set how often you'd like JaggZilla to run your search and email you a list of results. If you've already created saved searches, make sure the one you just created is selected under "Search." When you've set everything on this page, click the "Update/Commit" button.

Now JaggZilla will whine at you for all new bugs assigned to you. It does this continuously, not just once at bug creation/opening. The idea is that you're supposed to look at the bugs and change the status to "Assigned." This indicates that you've accepted the bug. Don't think the fact that you already show as the assignee means that the bug status has changed. It'll still be "New," and JaggZilla will still whine at you, until you update it to "Assigned." If you don't want to accept it, reassign it to someone else.

Thanks!

Thanks MM. Sorry I keep disappearing for weeks at a time. RL is keeping me hopping.

I also want to note that "bugs" can also include "enhancement requests." Bugzilla allows you to set the severity of the bug report, and one of the severity levels is "enhancement."

Here is one bug I found with current 1024 build.

I just took one of Alma's sector (NE). Then I stationed 3 support mercs here while the assault mercs proceeded down to Alma's SE sector. Unfortunately, I wasnt able to kill all the enemies at SE sector and one went up to NE sector!

The problem now is, everytime I sent back the Assault mercs to the NE sector, the game required me to choose where to insert all mercs including those support mercs already in the sector. It is not possible and game crashes when i select to insert individual mercs.

Thanks, BurgerKing, but I think you may have misunderstood the topic. Yes, it says "report all bugs here," but at the top of the thread you'll see a link for Bugzilla, the bug reporting system that this topic was trying to point you towards. Sorry for the confusion. We'd like bug reports in there instead of here. Your report is likely to get much more attention there, too. Thanks again! Smile

There may be a problem with JaggZilla, which is what I've called our Bugzilla instance. I can't load the site, and I'm currently being denied SSH access, too. I've sent a message to my sysadmin to see what's up. I'll post here again when I know more.
