How to post General Gameplay and Balance Issues

All general gameplay issues, including balance, economy and progression  (Vehicle specific issues should be reported here => here )

 

If you encounter a problem with general gameplay, including balance (e.g. Battle Rating bugs), economy (e.g. incorrect RP or Lion values after a battle) and progression (e.g. research not working), please use the guidelines below. Squad and Squadron formation or maintenance problems also belong in this section.

 

To ensure that we are able to help you as quickly as possible, please be reminded that we can only help you properly when the submitted files and information are complete.
Also, be aware that you should only describe one issue per thread. If you experience multiple issues, please open a new thread for each separately, even when the issues appear to be similar.

 

In addition, please make sure to attach all required files directly to the forums unedited. Externally linked files and compressed files are not accepted.


Thank you for your help!

 


If you are using a custom hangar, sound or localisation modification to the client, then please return you client to its 'normal' configuration and test the issue BEFORE submitting a bug report. 

 

Please make sure to summarize the problem in your topic title as short and precise as possible.

Also, add the current client version in brackets in front of your post, e.g: "[1.37.45.25]  <Issue>"

 

To make the report valid and useful, please add the following files and information to your opening post:
 

1. A detailed description of the issue you have encountered. It is also important that you describe how we can reproduce the issue, if you are able to reproduce it.

 

2. If applicable, the full name(s) of the vehicle(s) affected.

 

3. If applicable, the difficulty setting (e.g. Arcade) in which the issue occurs.

 

4. If applicable, an attached screenshot showing the issue, as well the client replay file and the server replay.

 

5. Attach the Client Log of the session in which the error occurred. If the problem is persistent, attach the latest one available.

 

To better help us resolve the issue, please also include the following:
 

6. Attach your system's current DxDiag Log.

 

7. If possible, link a short video showcasing the issue.

What is a Client Log and how do you obtain it?
 

 

The Client Log
Client logs (file extension: .clog) are files generated by the War Thunder client and show a reflection of all the actions a user has performed in one secluded game session. As soon as the launcher initializes the start of the game, a new Client Log is being started, which is finalized when the client is closed (the game session ends). Besides recording the actions of the user, it also records the client-side calculations and has a built-in error catching system, that will allow the technical administration to identify game code or synchronization issues efficiently.

Client Logs are being saved once after a game session has ended. If you have an error that is reproducible, you can help increasing the expressiveness of your Client Log by starting a new game session, reproducing the error and then exiting the game manually. This way, the Client Log is very small and the error can be identified more easily.

Please note that for all bug reports, only the Clog File is required. Please do not attach the Clog File that includes the cef extension.

How to obtain your Client Log:

Client Logs are created automatically, so the only thing you need to do is to locate them.

DOWNLOAD FROM GAIJIN ENTERTAINMENT WEBSITE

 

1. If you have downloaded War Thunder from the Gaijin Entertainment website, follow the installation path that you've specified during installation and locate the '.game_logs' folder

2. Identify the Client Log (.clog) file that was created during the session in which you recognized the issue or bug. This is usually the latest file created, so sorting by date is the easiest option.

The files itself are also time-stamped, and follow this scheme: YEAR_MONTH_DAY_HOUR_MINUTE_SECOND_ID.clog

 

3. Attach the Client Log to your bug report

DOWNLOAD FROM STEAM

What is a DxDiag Log and how do you obtain it?
 
The DxDiag Log
The DxDiag log (file extension: .txt) is a text document that is created by Microsoft's DxDiag diagnostics tool, showing non-personalized information about the hardware and drivers of your system. The DxDiag log file helps our technical administration to identify whether the problem you encounter is happening due to incompatibilities or issues with certain hardware or driver components on your system. It is especially important with display or sound device issues, as it helps to identify the devices and their drivers easily.

 

You can find a more in-detail description (and tutorial) by relliK here.
 
How to obtain your DxDiag Log:
 
Obtaining the DxDiag Log is fast and easy. Just perform the following steps:
 

1. Press 'Windows Key + R' to open Microsoft's Run function

 

2. Type in 'dxdiag' in the input field and click 'OK'

4. When you are running a 32-bit (x86) version of Windows, click on "Save All Information..." and specify a directory and name to save the file.

 

5. When you are running a 64-bit (x64) version of Windows, first click on Run 64-bit DxDiag, then click on "Save All Information..." and specify a directory and name to save the file.

 

6. Attach the DxDiag Log to your bug report JywN7VV.jpg
