Reporting Mudlet bugs

Have you ran into an issue with Mudlet? If you're unsure about it, visit us on Discord or come to our our Help Forum and post a new thread; we'll help you solve the problem.

If you're certain you've found a bug (a problem) in Mudlet, please report it to us on our bug tracker. Please be generous and submit bug reports instead of not - it can happen that you're the only one who has ran into an issue, and if you don't let us know about it, it likely won't be located and fixed. We do want you to have the best experience using Mudlet!

For the record: we have, with the release of Mudlet 3.0.0, moved our Bug Tracking from Launchpad to Github to better integrate with our development system going forward; and all the messages about bugs reported on the former should have been migrated to the latter, though, as an unwanted side-effect they are apparently from the person who did the transfer, you will have to look at the bottom of the messages to see some details about each original entry on the transferred messages.

Mac issues affecting Mudlet

When importing package, Mudlet 'freezes'

More recent versions of OS X have developed an issue where when you go to select a Mudlet package for import, the file selection dialog gets opened up behind the Mudlet window, and is inaccessible. Because Mudlet is unresponsive while you are selecting the file, it appears that it has frozen.

Possible fixes:

Try to either move the Mudlet window out of the way to show the file chooser dialog, or use the installPackage() function to select your file instead.

When importing a package, the file chooser dialog shows up and goes away

Again an issue on recent versions of OS X - when you open the file chooser window to select a file, it shows up and then goes away.

Possible fixes:

Try creating many (~10) new files in the folder that the file chooser opens in - it might stick around then. The issue seems to be that OS X is when there aren't enough files in a folder, OS X tries to select a non-existent file and the file window crashes.
