Please put new bug reports in this section, as something you perceive as a bug could be a problem with your browser, cache settings, cookie settings, etc. (This applies especially to login problem. If you are having login problems, try cleaning your cache, resetting cookies, etc. before filing the bug here.)

Bug reports should contain as much specific information as possible:-

  • Datestamp your reports. Reports of old bugs reappearing will likely be ignored as outdated reports of the old bug, if you don't give a timestamp.
  • If it's a bug that affects your character, you should specify your character's name.
  • If it's a bug that affects a building, specify as much information about it as you're happy to give without betraying any safehouse locations.
  • If it sounds like a display issue, specify the browser you're using, and any Firefox extensions you may have installed.

  • Note: Please only add new bugs into the last section. Bugs within the sections are ordered from latest (at the top) to oldest (at the bottom) so that newer bugs are easier spotted by simply clicking the section headers, which can be very useful if you're trying to gather input from others on it, and it gets confirmed as an actual bug that way. Due to this, please try and keep that chronological order, and help maintain the chronological order if you see any out of line. Also, please at least try to skim the page to see if the bug has been reported before.

I think it's probably because the percentages were in the decimals, so they rounded the count either up or down. Looking at the stat page right now, it's fine after the zombies dropped by one person (4382 -> 4381). --GAMBLER of LEGEND ΧIII 02:31, 2 August 2011 (BST)

Description: Normally, moving from the gatehouse to any building within the fort, with or without freerunning, will deposit the character outside said building. However, attempting to move to a ruined one will give the normal message for attempting to free ruin into a ruined building i.e. "you are forced to street level" or "you lose your footing" complete with health loss in the second case. Additionally, attempting to free run into the ruined armory will give one of the two messages as well as the normal message stating the impossibility of free running into the armory. [1]

Discussion
Comments here A recently-cut fir tree has been propped up in a crude stand.

I can confirm. [2]. I believe trees and other holiday decorative items have different rules than typical decorative items. They are more like generators and radio transmitters. Since you can interact with them, they are always visible, even in the dark. I don't believe this is a bug, but the wiki page for darkness should be updated. ~Vsig.png 18:32, 15 March 2011

This is not a bug, you should take this to someplace like this where they deal with zergs.--Michalesonbadge.pngTCAPD(╯°□°)╯ ┻━┻ 17:56, 6 April 2010 (BST)

Agreed, take it to a place where zergs are dealt with. It's possible, though unlikely, that this is merely a case of different players who intentionally used similar names (e.g. Pathetic Bill, Silly Lilly Pilly, etc.), though the folks at Resens or elsewhere would be better suited to say. If they actually are zergs, then there are already measures in the game to catch them, and if the measures aren't working, it's not a bug, so much as the zergs finding a way to circumvent the system. Aichon 21:44, 6 April 2010 (BST)

The fucking FAQs say no fucking thing about reporting this here, in fact they state clearly:

How do I report game abuse or zerging?
You don't.

So why do you think you're so special you get to ignore the same directives from the creator of the game that you claim to be quoting? Fuckwit. -- To know the face of God is to know madness....Praise knowledge! Mischief! Mayhem! The Rogues Gallery!. <== DDR Approved Editor 01:37, 7 April 2010 (BST)


Obviously since he is a zerger...and it was confirmed that his 5 clones at that same point were running around there the little flags in the game failed. He also has 13 of the same zerger names. From the FAQ: How do I report game abuse or zerging?

There's no need to email reports in - if there's some exceptional bug-based game abuse going on, you can file it as a bug report on the Wiki for attention.

so go fuckwit yourself.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Kwicks (talkcontribs) 7 April 2010.

Digestion only worth 3 HP

Severity: Unknown
Description: This happened in Monroeville, so I'm not sure if this is of any consequence to any of the other cities.

Another roving zombie tried to eat a corpse. And again. And again. And again. And once more.
They gained 3 HP each time instead of 4. They are wearing a tattered surgical mask which means their teeth still show. Is this a bug, a mask issue, or an update?

Discussion
Personally, i think that is a mistake in Wiki. I see no reason, that good bite of warm meat and sip of salty blood would help you less, than cold rotting carrion. Perosnally, i'd even make HP income frmo corpse less than incom from biting the survivior. I guess if Kevan would care, he can clarify his point of few. I re-read wiki after your msg, and there realyl is claimed 4HP for corpse, i admit. But before it i never expected >3HP on this skill. BTW, is there (or was someday) soem skillset, so Z would bite for 4HP ? Perhaps someday bite corpse was calibrated to be equal to max-power bite on enemy, and later bite was made less dangerous, and corpse were forgotten to afjust accordingly ? Shambler for Shambala 19:35, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

The problem is not in the Wiki. I encountered the digestion only healing 3 HP yesterday and actually thought it was the correct number and Wiki was wrong. It was a regular zombie in Molton, no masks or anything else funny. However, using Digestion today on the same character it is consistently healing 4 HP per bite. So definitely there is something strange in the code. Kay VanRaven 12:55, 8 May 2013 (UTC)



Infected without Being Bitten/Attacked at All

Severity: Pretty nasty
Description: My character was in an unlit NT building with as many as 5 active zombies. They were not bitten yet became infected. If this was lag, notice of an infection, or successful bite attack, did not appear for the rest of my AP barricading.

Here is the moment just before I became "infected", the following AP, and the next message I received that I was attacked at all. This is not a 0-second bug as no message even popped up (0 seconds ago) indicating I was attacked at all. I left a message in game for the zombies to try and post evidence they succesfully attacked me here.

Discussion
I see your HP dropped by 5 between iWitnesses; accounting for the 1 HP from infection, that means you took 4 damage, which the samage a bite does. Sometimes messages can be lost when lots of people are active (ask me about the time I survived ~90 HP damage in one night with no apparent healing), so I'm inclined to chalk it down to that.

Without further knowledge I wouldn't say it's a 0-second bug, but they may be related. ЯЭV⁠€⁠NΛИ You rated this wiki '1'! Great job, go hog wild!||||||||||||||||||||||||||| 05:33, 10 November 2008 (UTC)


I can confirm this as an actual bug. I just infected someone without hitting to cause any damage. As in I went to bit, missed, but they still got infected. See before as I stood up and after when I attacked. I missed but the colour changed to suggest they are infected.

It might be of note that I had just risen from the dead after dying from an infection, and I had attacked once with my fire axe before. I have also just noticed that I still had the option to 'fix' the generator when I stood up as a zed? --ORakoon 22:40, 15 June 2010 (BST)

I believe yours is a case of lag. Much like when zombies rise in malls, they can only see their current corner until they make an action, and in this case the infection (something you can only see as a zombie) wasn't viewable until it registered you.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 22:53, 15 June 2010 (BST)
I have to agree. The fact that it didn't show up until the "after" shot, which is also when you can no longer fix the generator, indicates that it's probably an issue with identifying your state of living or death and providing you with the correct options. Aichon 03:01, 16 June 2010 (BST)

Current Status: new
Severity: medium
Description: My character, Ragriav, is a zombie and one time I revived and had -1 AP after reviving. Now, for today, I have been trying to act by moving about whenever 1 AP appeared. However, the AP seems to be recharging slower than 30 minutes, since after checking back after an hour and a half I had just recovered one AP. What is even more disturbing is the fact that every time I took an action it dropped me back down to -1 AP! I do not understand how this can happen if one is supposed to lose 1 AP point, and not two. The problem with the slowly recharging AP also needs looking into. I urgently request help on the issue at hand. Thank you for your time and patience.

New Zombies take 2AP to walk each step. The Lurching Gait Skill will reduce this cost to 1AP --DDRJake 18:56, 26 September 2008 (BST)


Edit: Got this problem today (12 Februar 2009) on my character "Deathmarine". Got to the cemetery as zed with 2AP left. A few minutes later i refreshed the map with the link ( http://urbandead.com/map.cgi , not that you think i did something). Now my AP was 0, so i refreshed again. Then they dropped to -1AP. I had this already yesterday and lost 3AP on it. --Deathmarine 13:36, 12 February 2009 (UTC)

not that you think i did something) - that depends how refresh made in the browser. Paste URL into address bar and Opera would open last version from cache, and Mozilla would refetch new page from server, not remember MSIE way. Press refresh button/gesture and browser most probably woud repeat last action, even if it has no more sense like second syringe into the same z. Carefully track what actions you do and what AP-cost they have. As of now it seems DDRJake is right and you just try actions that cost several AP. For example revivification, beeing single action takes 10AP and you can fall to -9AP easily. Shambler for Shambala 19:48, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

A few blocks from my safehouse, I found one outside a hospital and began attacking with my knife for 2 damage. I brought the Zed from 50 HP to 18, before turning around to find shelter again. That's a total 32 Damage, plus the 7 XP I started with today. Upon returning to my safehouse I notice my profile said i only had 25 XP...

Discussion
The math just doesn't add up. Even if the zed had 40 starting HP, i would have 29 XP, but i should have 39 xp. I'm not expecting a mulligan, it's just very frustrating. I'll get the 14 XP im missing down the road.

Maybe someone else was attacking the zombie at the same time you were there and didn't notice it? --GAMBLER of LEGEND ΧIII 14:21, 29 March 2008 (UTC)

Very possible Axe hack, and something i didn't think of. I was taking a fair amount of time inbetween turns. so who knows?

Also something interesting is that you had what you thought was 7 xp, if this was somehow -7 xp then viola, instant 25 xp. Good Soldier

These might be related. One of my zombies didn't get any XP from certain attacks. Could it be a zero-second issue? Bystander 20:21, 20 November 2008 (UTC)

Discussion
Screenshots/iwitness or some more detail would be nice. Could you describe the sequence of events specifically? From what it sounds like, you were doing searches, found a flaregun, found some items afterwards, and then you moved somewhere else and entered the URL manually. At that point, it seemingly teleported you back to the location where you had found the items, and you started finding them again in the same order. Is that correct? Honestly, it sounds more like a browser cache issue than a bug with the game, I have to say, especially since the description was rather sparse. Now, if you suddenly have 2x of each of those items, then we might have something to discuss, but you gave no indication of that. Aichon 03:11, 29 June 2010 (BST)

I don't have iwitness and screenshots take forever on my computer.

Discussion
Just to be sure, when you say "tried to revive this one", you mean "created crazy" is in your contact list, and you selected that name in the drop down menu when using a needle, or had just scanned them and used the "revive this specimen" button? Because otherwise, it is conceivable that there was another zombie presnet in your loaction which you never saw (because, say, the moved in after you loaded your page, and move out again just after you used your needle). Using a needle on "the zombie" never ensure you actually hit the zombie you want, even if (as far as you know) there is only one zombie present. SIM Core Map.png Swiers 20:01, 28 May 2011 (BST)

Some skills no longer working once new skills are added

Description: Several days ago, I first noticed that my diagnosis skill, which I bought about a month ago, was no longer showing user HP as it had been. I figured that it was a bug that would be fixed within a few days and waited. My screen still does not show user HP. Also, today I bought skills in shotgun training, advanced shotgun training, and lab experience. Once I bought these, the percentages of all hit rates for weapons have decreased. I have every military skill and my hit rates have always been higher for each weapon I chose than they are now. I have dropped to what appears to be basic starting percentages for chance of hit rate as if I had no skills at all: punch 12.5%, knife 25%, pistol 32.5%, shotgun 32.5%, and fire axe 20%. The amount of damage looks correct and unchanged, though. My character's name is "Victoria Anne". Thank you.

Can you please supply screenshots, Victoria? -- ϑanceϑanceevolution 01:35, 10 April 2011 (BST)

Not a bug. HP values are not displayed in Dark buildings. ~Vsig.png 02:40, 10 April 2011

Thank you for that information but I am not so much worried about the HP values as I am about the hit rates. I know that knife used to be at least at 50% and I think pistol was 70 something %. I don't want to go out and fight with low hit ratings and miss most every time when my skill is built up for hit rate to be improved. -- User:Victoria Anne 9:49, 9 April 2011

Hit rates are also affected. See more at Dark article. -- ϑanceϑanceevolution 02:53, 10 April 2011 (BST)

When I replaced some existing graffiti with a tag for my group, it said I improved on my work, suggesting that I was the one who put the original message in place (I did not). The only other thing I can think of is that I may have cleaned the graffiti in the building after it was defiled during some attacks not too long ago, but I know that I never wrote that message myself. Did I just answer my own question about why I received that message? And, even if I did, would this be a bug or intended behavior?

Highly doubt this is a bug. What I'm guessing is this: You got the original message the first time you tuned your radio, and since then, this is the second time you've tuned it. Am I on the money? If you don't remember, that's fine. I'll test it out later. --GAMBLER of LEGEND ΧIII 19:12, 31 October 2010 (UTC)

My radio was previously tuned to the EBS on 25.92Mhz. I just tried retuning again with the same results. First I tuned to 26.75Mhz and I got "The static hisses to a clear silence". I then re-tuned again to 26.75Mhz and got "The reception remains clear". Finally, I tuned it back to 26.98Mhz and got "The radio begins to hiss static". I even had another one of my characters tune his radio to 26.98Mhz and also got "The radio begins to hiss static". --Thvortex 20:50, 31 October 2010 (UTC)

It could have been hacking, but then I would have just jumped from a building. I lost HP without any prompts saying who hit me or that I even took damage. I know that I was supposed to be at 59 HP, but I was at 19 HP. 40 HP is a big jump, and is pretty hard to miss. Somebody please tell me how I just got hurt.

Discussion
I see that you have Free Running. Were you trying to enter ruined buildings via Free Running? Doing so has a chance to take off 5HP for each time you do it. Also, maybe you were infected? You didn't tell us that you weren't, but it's the most obvious answer. Otherwise, it's possible you were attacked without actually having noticed the messages. I really don't know for sure.

I'm often HEALED without being told who healed me. I guess this is similarish. --    : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : 23:54, 6 October 2010 (BST)
No, I didn't have an infection, but yes, the free-running may have been the cause because my character is sometimes moved to safety by another person. They say that they don't think they fell off. Also, I've never had to move back inside afterwards, so I trust that they didn't fall. And that it would take 8 drops in the 2-3 times that they've played since the last time I checked my health.
The most likely cause was that the zombie I got to follow me broke in then got kicked out after gnawing on me. Without me being told that a zombie gnawed my left arm off.-Caboose661 00:42, 7 October 2010 (BST)
If multiple people are playing your character, then the messages regarding the attacks would have gone to whichever of you logged on first after the attack happened. I've had cases where I logged on, but then quit my browser without seeing the messages (i.e. I missed them, since they only get displayed to me once, and I didn't look at them), and then later logged on, only to wonder why I was low on HP or infected. Also, sharing accounts is generally frowned upon, since it very quickly leads to concerns regarding zerging and alt abuse, just so you're aware. Aichon 05:49, 7 October 2010 (BST)
They didn't log on after that. It's probably that I just didn't get the notification. I didn't check my HP for two days, and in that period the guy I was staying with lost HP and the barricades were down a little bit. I was also tagging zombies to get them to follow me. The strange part was that it was just one zombie that would brought the barricades down from EHB and then hurt us both.-Caboose661 00:21, 12 October 2010 (BST)

Jose, I would guess that you must have hit 50AP and "reset" your timer again so that it's not at X:16 and X:46 any longer, but rather at some other time. Instead of counting it that way, I'd suggest waiting about 1.5 hours and seeing if you get 2-3AP. If you do, then all is probably fine. Aichon 21:03, 2 August 2010 (BST)
Axe, that's incorrect. The AP ticks happen at whatever time you last went from 50 to 49 AP. So, if I was at 50AP at 1:15 and use an AP then, I'll get my next one 30 minutes later at 1:45. There are even userscripts out there (not by me), that exploit this fact to tell you down to the minute when your AP will regenerate. Aichon 21:03, 2 August 2010 (BST)

Also, it might be funny to lower the percentage chance of smashing (from 100%)?

Did you log out of your character (the one it's logging you in as against your will) last time? If not, then you could still be logged into them and need to log out of them first before it'll properly understand that you're trying to log into a different one. Basically, always log out first.

There's actually a much more easier 100% foolproof way to fix this, and that is to log out your character. Apparently, if you're running multiple characters, and you sign into one without first logging off, the game still thinks you're logged onto the first character, thus making the switch. --GAMBLER of LEGEND ΧIII 22:13, 29 June 2010 (BST)

Current Status: Possible proximity penalty
Severity: Low
Description: With one of my other characters, I have spent the last 2 full days trying to barricade a factory. The Factory has no barricades and is only Doors Secured. Every time I hit the barricade button it tells me the usual failed barricading message. For the last 2 days the factory doesn't appear to not change in status or residence, which I will show from the Screen Shot of the end of my AP today. http://iwrecords.urbandead.info/05-26-10_1300hrs_PUBLIC/IN_70-47_unbarricadeable_5a1-52d-613.html.

Discussion
Sounds like possible proximity penalties. Did you or anyone in your household have another character within 10 spaces of the location? If so, move them away and try again. ЯЭV⁠€⁠NΛИ You rated this wiki '1'! Great job, go hog wild!||||||||||||||||||||||||||| 09:02, 20 August 2010 (BST)

Not a bug. There's no one there to talk to, so speech is disabled. It happens for survivors too. I've seen some suggestions floating around, trying to keep it as an option regardless, but it's definitely intended behavior. Aichon 20:35, 7 May 2010 (BST)

It can be easily re-added via Greasemonkey if you would like to be able to talk to yourself. The game is just trying to save you AP. ЯЭV⁠€⁠NΛИ You rated this wiki '1'! Great job, go hog wild!||||||||||||||||||||||||||| 09:04, 20 August 2010 (BST)



Password Request System Flood

Severity: Mail reminder system abuse
Description: I come home today to find 93 emails from the system reminding me of the password to one of my characters. The emails said the request came from 67.159.45.24, which WHOIS says is Woodstock in the US. Now, this is either a bug with the system, either by sending it in the first place or sending so many from one request or alternately someone's been requesting my password 93 times in an attempt to try and get into my character through stupidity. Who do we know on that IP address?

While I'm here, can I finally get that donation flag removed on that character that someone donated for without my knowledge? You know the one that has already had emails sent about it, over a year ago?

Discussion
Providing some basic countermeasures to this should be fairly straightforward – perhaps one request per account per IP per day? ЯЭV⁠€⁠NΛИ You rated this wiki '1'! Great job, go hog wild!||||||||||||||||||||||||||| 09:05, 20 August 2010 (BST)

Likely to be a page loading issue. Are you running any add-ons, plug-ins and GM scripts? If so disable them and attempt to recreate the problem. -- To know the face of God is to know madness....Praise knowledge! Mischief! Mayhem!

I'm pretty sure that normally happens when you are the only person in the square. Clicking it will most likley heal you. I'll grab screenies later to back this up. --Michalesonbadge.pngTCAPD(╯°□°)╯ ┻━┻ 21:36, 5 March 2010 (UTC)
Actually, he's entirely right. Case closed, not a bug. -- To know the face of God is to know madness....Praise knowledge! Mischief! Mayhem! The Rogues Gallery!. <== DDR Approved Editor 22:20, 5 March 2010 (UTC)
Personally i think the FAK button then could have "upon yourself" label or tooltip, it would be less confusing.

Not a bug. Also, sign your comments please. ЯЭV⁠€⁠NΛИ You rated this wiki '1'! Great job, go hog wild!||||||||||||||||||||||||||| 09:08, 20 August 2010 (BST)



Human skills for buy by Zmobies

Description: Recently revived some newcoming zed and got into -9AP. When refreshed i already was dead. Nothing strange, surely. But by reviving i got exactly 100xp, so before standing up i wanted to get some new skill, and see for yourself: i am dead and would rise as zombie, yet my skills menu are suviviors' one! Ok, i got Bodybuilding, it is good zombie's skill, if you would not want to rot you marbles. Yet that is strange thing to happen, purchasing human skills while aready beeing zombie. Proofscreens:

Discussion
Had you stood up before buying the skill? As far as I remember, when you're lying down, the skills available are based on what you were before lying down - so if you were killed, you can still buy survivor skills before you stand up as a zombie, and if revived, you can buy zombie skills before standing up as a survivor. I think. Don't quote me on it. Nothing to be done! 15:17, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

Sure i had not yet. I told it right up in description. Shambler for Shambala 19:38, 2 January 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, that's how it works. Not a bug, really. --Bob Boberton TF / DW Littlemudkipsig.gif 18:42, 2 January 2010 (UTC)
Not a bug ? Then what's the point of this mechanics ? am i lying or standing - i am already Z from now on! Mechanics that ignores sense is hardly how it should be.Shambler for Shambala 19:29, 2 January 2010 (UTC)
Well, technically if you're not standing up yet, you're not a zombie yet. Nothing to be done! 19:24, 2 January 2010 (UTC)
Okay, let it be part of game design. But it seems to be quite counter-intuitive and non-comfort part of it :-( I can see no benefits for player with such a strange design. Shambler for Shambala 19:28, 2 January 2010 (UTC)
As was said, until you actually rise from the dead, you're just a dead body on the ground. Besides, the only two choices here are either to do it as it was done, or else to mark the change as soon as the person dies. Since most people stand up immediately, and it makes better in-genre sense to have them not be considered a zombie until they rise, I think it's fine. Aichon 23:12, 2 January 2010 (UTC)
We have a name for dead bodies that don't stand up. They're called corpses. Want to learn zombie skills? You've got to stand before you can understand.--GANG Giles Sednik CAPD 04:59, 3 January 2010 (UTC)
Sounds to me like we need some corpse skills, like Lie There Stinkless, so you don't smell funny--Emot-pervert.gifAnime SucksEmot-pervert.gif 13:37, 3 January 2010 (UTC)

Safehouse Auto-Change?

Description: For some reason it seems as though my Safehousing has a mind of it's own and it likes to change on it's own. The last time I can remember clicking the Safehouse button was a couple months ago when I was at a church, and now it's changed twice on it's own to a school and a business place. The only thing I've done at this two locations was work on repairing the barricades, though I don't see how that would change it at all.
