If you find any bugs or typos or anything while playing the game, let us know here!

It's not really a bug but it's disturbing, when you reach around 2850 coin you didn't add more coin graphically (which is understandable !) But when you lose coins it's still disapearing so you can potentially have 0 coin drawn when you got 7000 coin left if you had previously 10 000 coin in bank which is rare xD

Developer(+1)

Oh I see! Good catch, I will add that to my list and have it fixed for the next update. Thanks for the report!

When the sea monster leaves the screen, there's still some tentacle visible on the edge when de-spawning. (This was playing on the Windows .exe in a 1280x720 window)

Developer

Thanks for posting, I've added this to my list and it'll be fixed in the next update :)

(+2)

i also got a bug, when i click play on the menu, nothing happens... only the menu screen lifts up and flies AWAY. after that, i see only the court, no people (im playing on mac by the way) and i tried evrything

the text of the added or lost coins and happiness overlap if you get a new one at the right moment

The music the game plays continues even after i close the game, and there is no process of it in windows task manager.

Please help! its annoying!

Developer

Are you playing the Windows standalone build, or are you playing in a browser?

If you press Y and N at the same time, you will select both options and two people will come in next, one will leave and one won't.

Y and N at the same time when there is a yes/no decision.

Developer(+1)

It's a feature! You're now playing in a quantum reality! jk, that's crazy, I can hardly believe I never found that one myself. Good find, I will have it fixed in the next update :)

Some side effects are, you can also skip creatures, the bar at the end of the day that says how much happiness you have earned/lost in the passed day has gone, creatures will appear at the end of the day, when you get some people at the end of the day, you can get double and you get both of the stuff from the creature. For example, when the blob asks you to tell people to stop calling him slimeball and you do this glitch, you will get 3 happiness and lose 3 happiness!

Deleted post

When you press the "No" button, the animation plays for the "Yes" button.

Developer

Do you mean that you pressed N but then the green thumbs up appeared? Or that the image of the small green Y button looked like it depressed when you hit N, but you still got the red thumbs down afterwards as intended?

No, the big red thumbs down button appears correctly; it's the little green "yes" button in the dialog bubble that animates instead of the little "no" button. The correct response happens - everything works correctly except that in the little dialog that shows "yes/no", the wrong button animates when you press your answer.

Developer

Gotcha. The small y/n buttons in the dialog bubble are just on an animation loop showing that either one can be pressed, they are totally disconnected from your input and only ever line up by chance. I've heard of a few people thinking that they represent your actual button press though, so I think I will change how that animation works to reflect what people are expecting. Thanks, I'll have it changed around in the next update.

I found a text bug. http://i.imgur.com/4kSKvPJ.png

Developer

Thanks! I've got it fixed, it'll be part of the next update :)

The other thing I was going to say, I really do enjoy this game, but I feel the game is too easy. I played about an hour and got too 7000 and i was like oh, this is not so fun anymore. Especially since a lot of the events are similar.


Oh and the coin graphics is messed up, i mean at 3000 I think it reachs the end, but if you lose money it start decreasing the pile even at 7000

The browser version just has an empty box instead of showing the stats for me.

Developer

Which browser/OS are you using?

Chrome, Windows.

Developer(+1)

Interesting, that's what I test on! Regardless, thanks for the report, I'll look into it a bit more and see if there's anything I can try in the next update.

Weird! Good luck figuring it out!

(+1)

I'm having the same issue :(

yes i have the same issue as well i am using google chrome on a windows 10 laptop(a little more info)

(Edited 1 time)

I have the same. on win7 and opera. after playing 100 days I just discovered that statistics should be displayed when I looked on the forum.

(Edited 1 time)

I found a bug that the keys (Y, N, Space) only work when i move the mouse.

Apologise, i forgot. I'm playing on Mozilla Firefox, Windows 10

Uhm hi? I literally just made an account to play this game XD but I'm not sure if these are bugs. (Sorry if these are stupid questions.) When I open the game to play there seems to be a thing blocking the gold, population, and happiness. (It kinda has the same color as the end of the day paper thingy) Is there anyway to make it go away? And this may just be my laptop, but when I download this game I can;t play because I need sort the court_data near it. Is there something I'm doing wrong? (Sorry if the answers are obvious :( I'm not very good at stuff like this)

Developer

Hello! The issue about not being able to see your stats in the lower left is a bug that a few people are getting, I'm working on fixing that for the next update.

When you download the game, right click the zip file you downloaded and select "Extract all". It won't run properly unless you extract the zip file and then run the game using the extracted files. Let me know if that works for you! I'm also curious if you're able to see your stats in the downloaded version.

ok! Thank you so much for replying so soon! I will try it out, and see how it works :)

everything is fine on the downloaded version now! Thank you! on the site version the bug with not seeing your stats is still there. And I'm guessing there's no way to save progress yet is there?

Developer

No, unfortunately saving is not in the game yet - next update! So can you confirm the stats are displaying correctly in the downloaded version?

The game on the site works fine for me.

yep! :) The downloaded version works just fine! :D

Developer

Alright, thank you for the response. I'll be addressing that bug in the next update :)

:)

(+2)

even after lifting the curse on chester, he came back when I was in debt and offered to eat people and pay me, should that not happen after he's uncursed?

I think that's intentional. It's not like Chester can't eat people (he is a mimic after all), he just didn't want to be forced to eat people when he didn't want to. I don't see a problem if Chester still wants to pay you to eat people.

The box that shows money, population, and happiness is completely blank. Playing it in the web browser mode.

same for me ! :(

After I made the dragon sword, nobody ever came for the sword, even after multiple tens of days

aand, nevermind, it fixed itself, just took an inordinate amount of time to complete

(+1)

It took me almost 100 days before someone offered to take the sword. I gave to the thief (LOL) and it took her another 100 days to come back with the prize. Sometimes I wonder if the adventurer had offered if I would gotten a bigger prize because she said she kept half of it for herself.

(Edited 1 time)

Played it a few times.. and I want the witch to take it.. but alas.

the only bug i see on the website is that the stats for the game are gone or just not there. when i tried to download the game it said i didnt have permission to them, so i have no clue

ok update, i have managed to fix my stupidity. downloaded version is up and working. however site still doesnt show stats

Hey, I supported the game and everything but when I went to download it, something was wrong with the zip file. It won't let me extract anything. I'm not sure if this a bug or anything but I'd really like to play this game outside of the browser! I've downloaded the file twice. I'm on Windows 7, it's an older computer. Hopefully you can help me out!

I have the same issue where the downloaded game doesn't extract unless you open it in chrome. However the program doesn't run when you extract after opening it in chrome.

Developer

That's very odd! When you locate the downloaded zip file and right click it and select "Extract all", is there an error message of some kind? I'm curious about what point it's failing at.

When I open a compressed file my computer automatically uses 7-zip which crashes windows explorer (not Windows 10)

Developer

I'm not sure what to do about that! Windows has the ability to unzip a file built-in, but if that's not working you could try using WinRAR. Sort the Court contains multiple files, so the only way I can easily distribute the download version is using a zip.

I guess, in my case, I had to drag out the files that came with the zip and have them next to the game launcher in order for it to work.

I let the dragon take my gold to spare my people. The blacksmith asked for gold to prepare the sword, and then the workers to help with the sword. But now it's been 20 days later and all he does is give me some gold because his business is doing well. Not sure if he's bugged and forgot about the dragon or maybe his other responses are higher priority?

(+1)

It takes him like 50-100 days to prepare the sword, just be patient and keep playing.

When the witch slayed the goblins i got plus 36 Happines becuase the Msg That says she slayed them kept on showing up

I have paid every single time the witch comes asking for coin to appease the spirits but not only do I still get the big haunting that takes a thousand coin to fix but she makes a comment about how I should make smaller offerings (even though I've done so every time she's asked) It's not a huge deal but it is a bit annoying.

Developer

Yeah, the haunting storyline isn't working how I would like it to. It'll be revised in the next update, which will be out as soon as I'm able to finish it.

Not sure if bug but is there a way to end Mortimer from keep coming back? It's been coming around every couple of days eating people and no event has triggered to get rid of him.

I would like that too. The secretary offered to get rid of the Wizard after I turned him away a few times. I'd like to banish that monster too.

this may be an old post, but i agree. maybe the guards could exile him or something.

It seems weird that mimic (i don`t remember his name corrrectly, they was... Chesty, i guess?) comes when i`m in debt to offer gold for allowance to eat people while i already lifted curse up.

Developer

I agree - that will be fixed in the next update.

I'm trying to play the game but it just stops loading when its just about done.

Is the game not supported on the OS X MAC?

Developer

The download version is Windows only right now, but the in-browser version should work on Mac as long as you're using Safari 9.0 or newer. Chrome and Firefox should also work. Which browser are you using?

I am using safari 9.0.1 and it does the same thing for me where it stops loading when its almost done.

I just downloaded the game on my laptop but every time I try to play the game, no text shows up... Like literally everything else works perfectly except the text, but ya know kinda can't play the game since it's entirely text based...

When I try to download the game it does not download it just sends me back to the main page. I would really like to download the game.

Developer

Weird! If you're having problems with itch.io, you can try downloading the game from GameJolt instead.

(+1)

I'm not sure if its just the websites I'm using or not but its happening with all of them for me. So I started playing after watching a video and saw the little box in the bottom left corner of the screen but it was empty. It's usually filled with the number of your kingdom's people happiness and wealth but it wont show up for me. The game runs normally and it doesn't change anything but it's annoying that I can't tell how much money I have or the amount of people I have. I just have to guess depending on the amount of gold on my screen or the size of my town which is bad if something that's rare happens and I don't know if I have enough money to spend or enough people to... "sacrifice". This also goes with the happiness but I don't know what that even does. I'm using a Windows 7 (I know old) so I'm not sure If that has something to do with it but if you could fix this that would be great.

Thanks

I just play games

I don't know if it's been happening to anyone else, but the icons and numbers on the little scroll in the bottom-left corner never show up for me, no matter how many times I refresh the page D:

Developer(+1)

Sorry about that! A bunch of people have let me know about this problem, so I've got a fix that will hopefully work - it'll roll out when the update I'm working on is finished.

Thank you very much!! And I really enjoy the game ^u^

(Edited 1 time)

I believe you need to enlarge the high-score field if you continue using the font, especially when more eights are involved: http://pasteboard.co/4Cj9AIjI3.png

Developer

Wow, those are some insanely high stats... But yes, I've got it fixed now so the font size will auto-adjust for huge numbers. That'll be in the next update :)

Cheers mate, just sent some cash your way, even though my browser crashed and I just lost my over 1000 days played :).

Hi! I'm playing on a mac rn but the loading bar stays at 90% and it KILLS ME! I'm like move tot he right a little bit plz. But alas, it does not. Idk if this is rely a bug but I'm saying I wish I could play :p.

Developer

Hi there, what browser are you using to play the game? Have you tried different browsers and had the same result? Also, if you're able, you can try downloading the Mac standalone version instead of playing in your browser.

I've been in a safari browser I've not tried others yet. Thanks for the help!

I found a bug too, when i click start at the menu, nothing happens... only the menu screen dissapears and then im stuck at a empty sort the court, no advisor, no people (by the way, im playing on mac, just so you know)

and i have tried evrything, EVRYTHING

Developer

Sorry to hear that! Are you playing the game in the browser, or are you using the downloaded Mac build? If you're using the downloaded build, make sure you unzip the game before running it.

i forgot how to unzip it, so can you explain how?

Developer

If you've downloaded the standalone Mac version, you just need to double-click the .zip file and it will unzip the app file, which you can then double click to play. Were you using the downloaded version or the browser version when you got stuck with no characters?

i downloaded it, thanks for your help!

found out i unzipped it like 7 times, and the characters still wont appear, not even text bubbles :( sorry to be so 'delaying'

(Edited 1 time)

I've been having the same problem as Ujames1978 (in the "Verison 2 released!" topic) of having to let the thief slay the dragon because the knight asks me to "wield the sword for the kingdom" WAY before the blacksmith crafts it, while the thief only asks after I get it. Pwese try to fix it? Pwese?

Developer(+2)

I've looked into this and everything seems to be working as intended. The problem is there's a second piece of dialog for the knight where he talks about wielding a legendary sword, but that dialog has nothing to do with the dragon storyline, it just sounds very similar. I've rewritten that dialog to be less confusing and will put it out the next time I do a patch.

Alrighty, thanks for the answer :) By the way, your game is freaking awesome!!

Developer(+1)

Thanks very much :)

I don't know it is a bug or not but when i want to Login with game jolt i can't cause the incorrect thing appears but i tried it like 10 times and it doesn't worked maybe cause i changed my password some day ago and the game not updating the profiles or what? :D

(I downloaded the game)

Developer

Hello! I'm not sure what you mean by "the incorrect thing appears", but make sure you are entering your gamejolt token, not your password. Gamejolt uses a token system for security when manually logging in to games, on the gamejolt site click your portrait in the top right and select "Game Token" and enter that code instead.

i am having an issue logging into game jolt too. i know the token system and it still says invalid username and/or token. i even changed my token to see if that was the issue. i am on chrome widows 10. on the itch.io web page.

Developer

If you play on the Gamejolt page while logged in via the Gamejolt site, it should automatically log you into the game (you shouldn't need to use the login button in the game at all). Does doing it that way work? I'm not sure what else I can do to troubleshoot login problems, since almost all of that is handled by Gamejolt's own API :\

I have the same problem using both itch.io AND Gamejolt. Both don't like my Gamejolt game token. Whilst logged into Gamejolt and playing from Gamejolt, progressed isn't saved. Tried using the login feature (I am presented with the login option and New Game option - even if logged into Gamejolt. I even see greyed text "logged into Gamejolt..." in the lower right of the game screen whilst login screen is open. Not sure that made sense. :-) I suspect it's an API issue.

Developer

Keep in mind the GameJolt login has nothing to do with your saved game - the only thing logging in does is allow you to submit your scores to the leaderboards and earn trophies. Your saved progress is stored locally on your computer, even if you are not logged in. Troubles logging in may be GameJolt API issues, but you should still be able to save even if not logged in. Your progress is local, so if you play in the browser, the Continue button will only appear when you are playing in the browser on that same computer.


I have a problem where it will not start the game when I press continue

after i mentioned that i unzipped it like 7 times you didnt reply anymore... still alive?

(by the way, for me the browser version worked fine, played until i got to the council of crowns)

(PS i reset it all 3:)

Hello. This is my first time posting on a forum like this so i'm not sure if I'm posting this right. Anyway, I really enjoy your game but I have been experiencing an odd glitch where I load up the game and it looks as if the game has loaded up fine except for the background has like, loaded over the front of everything else. So all I can see is a grassy hill blocking everything. Sadly Im not sure what the issue is. I am using the downloaded version of the game and I tried it on 2 different computers but im still having the same issue.

So I downloaded the Mac version of the game, but whenever I start it up, there's no text or characters or anything... Just the king, his throne and the background. Help?

I'm playing it on macOS, 10.12, if that helps.

me too

Developer

Unfortunately since I don't have a Mac myself, it's very hard for me to track down Mac-specific issues like this.. Does the game work properly for you when played in the browser?

Yeah, it works fine when I play it in the browser.

i paid the blacksmith a big sum of money, to make a sword that could slay a dragon, but i never got it. i have now finished the game, and my city/kingdom isn't expanding anymore, so i assume, i have reache dthe end of taht as well. why didn't i get the sword? is it a bug? is it not added? was he buffing/tricking me?

Hi, I found that when I downloaded the game (on my mac) It would start, but the royal advisor never showed up, it was just me sitting in my throne. Im not sure if I just did something wrong but thats how it is.

I'm playing the game on Mac and when I open it and go to press "New Game" the menu disappears and takes me to the court, but my advisor never comes in nor does any citizen. It worked fine in my browser though (Chrome).

Developer

If possible, please run the game and try to start a new game again, then when this bug happens close the game and email the file /Users/[YourUserName]/Library/Logs/Unity/Player.log to support@graemeborland.com. Having your log file will help me be able to identify the problem.

hey, when i try to play Sort the Court and i click new game it just stays there and i can do nothing, im on mac os sierra.

Developer

If possible, please run the game and try to start a new game again, then when this bug happens close the game and email the file /Users/[YourUserName]/Library/Logs/Unity/Player.log to support@graemeborland.com. Having your log file will help me be able to identify the problem.

Hi there.

I'm playing the Windows desktop version and I'm having some trouble with the buttons not working. Whenever I try to continue the game after closing it, the buttons are non-responsive.

Developer

Hello, could you play the game so that this happens to you again, then close the game and navigate to the SortTheCourt_Data folder (it is in the same location as the game's .exe) and locate a file in there called output_log.txt. It would be helpful if you could email that file to support@graemeborland.com so I can see what's going on.

I was so excited to play the updated version, but in speech bubbles the text isn't showing up, just fuzzy squares D: I'm on a Chromebook and using browser if that affects it at all?

Developer

Sorry to hear that! The game should work in Chrome but I've never tested it on a Chromebook so there might be some differences there. I'll see if I can do anything about that in a future update :(

Thank you. :) I'll be running back whenever it's available or I get a compatible laptop. c:

So, when you cure Chester from that curse, he still goes on about eating folks for money. Not sure if this is strictly something that happens if you are out of money. Not sure if these feature(s) were intentional, but I'd consider this a bug.

Developer

Good find, I didn't intend for that to happen. Will be fixed in the next update :)

Cant download the game, its says dns error with v6p9d9t4.ssl.hwcdn.net.

(Edited 1 time)

Music Bug. I dont know if this is a bug but the more upbeat track repeats the intro in the background of the upbeat track so its kinda annoying and I like to hear the mumbles of the people.

(Edited 1 time) (+1)

I can't play the game anymore! I've downloaded the game and played for a while, but when I start the game now, I can't press the Continue, New Game, Login and Exit button! The Mute button in the top left of the screen does work. The buttons also turn orange when I hover over them.

P.S. Would I able to update the game and keep my safe files?

Developer

Could you run the game so that this happens again, then close the game and navigate to the SortTheCourt_Data folder next to the game's unzipped exe file, then grab the file called output_log.txt and email it to support@graemeborland.com. That will help me figure out what's going wrong.

Also, as long as you hang on to your save file (SortTheCourt_save.dat, found next to the game's exe) then you will be able to bring it over into future versions, so don't worry about that.

Done! :)

I've downloaded, extracted and opened the game but when I click new game, no one comes to talk to me. I have no idea whats wrong, please help me. Also, I'm on a MacBook Air (2013) and I have Sierra as my OS system.

Developer

Hello - please follow the instructions in this post to send me your log file, that will help me understand what's going on.

I'm playing the web game, cause my computer is broken and can't download files. I don't know if this is something with the web game, but uh, this happened.

https://i.gyazo.com/c2f9050adb8a75d181a269463af955a1.png

I went through the "quest chain" so to say with Chester. He was "cured" / his curse was lifted. I was short on cash and he offered me a deal where he would eat some citizens for gold. I'm assuming this is unintended?

Developer

Yep! That's been fixed and will be included in the next update, thanks for the report.

I noticed another "issue" related to the previous one. I banished the wizard from the town, but he returned to offer to lift Winston's curse. Sorry if someone else already mentioned this.

Developer

Another good find, I've now fixed that one as well, it'll be out in the next update :)

Hi!

My game doesn't seem to be working. When i select "New Game" it just comes up with the King sitting on his throne, and no people to say Yes or No to.

I am on a Macbook Air with macOS Sierra.

Please reply as soon as possible.

Thanks you!

(+1)

Me too! This is my message: I downloaded the game on Mac and I've been waiting but no people have shown up. I downloaded the correct Mac file and I've searched around but this does not seem to be a common error.

Developer

Hello, I'm going to need more information to try and debug your issue, so please follow the instructions in this post to submit your log file to me.

I downloaded the game on Mac and I've been waiting but no people have shown up. I downloaded the correct Mac file and I've searched around but this does not seem to be a common error.

Developer

It would help me to have more information about what's happening behind the scenes, so could you please follow the steps in this post to submit your log file?

The game will freeze after 5 or so people but the game will still run.

the smallest thing:

spelling error

independent

-sorry to disturb

When the Blacksmith came around and asked for money to get supplies to make a sword to slay the dragon, I said yes, yet he hasn't made the sword and I'm on day 100. (The dragon came while I was in the beginning so I'm guessing this all happened around day 25-40.)

I think theres a bug where after each day you lose at least 1 person from your town.

Just bought and downloaded the game. However when I launch it on my Mac, the game doesn't begin when i press King or Queen. I just see the king on his throne, but the royal advisor isn't coming in as she is supposed to :(((

Developer

Sorry to hear that, Fanrik. Please follow the steps in this thread to submit your log file and I'll see what I can do.

i opened the game and played for letssay 17 hours straight i close it and after waking up and stressing about shell shock live servers not working i decided to go on this and once it loaded everytime i tried either clicking continue, new game, extras or quit it wouldnt do any of the above... HELP I DONT WANT TO WASTE 17 HOURS OF MY LIFE FOR NOTHING

I remember this since the first day of dev!! <3 Thank you for adding a gender option! Here's a correction: the barber says to the queen that she's a fashionable King.

Im playing on Mac, it might just be because my Mac is crappy, but when I load the game all the letters turn into blocks and don't show the letters.

It seems i'm the laziest king because nobody is coming! I choose to be a king and sit in my chair but nobody seems to come!

I got it to work on the fastest setting

First of all, I use a MacBook Air

Whenever I run the game I just sit there, no one comes up to me and nothing changes. I feel like I've seen someone else say that but you didn't reply so I'm just trying to bring it to your attention.

Try clicking once on anything in the game, that usually gets it to work for me, but I'm on Windows, so I'm not sure.

I couldn't screenshot it, but I found that there was a gender-related issue when you played a queen, rather than a king. It's not that important, and you'll probably fix it in the future. If it helps, it was happened when a knight went on a quest to find gold and came back empty-handed, the second bubble of dialogue he said.

When you click where the yes/no box would be, if it's not there, it still plays the clicking sound. Due to the fact that the game is detecting for the mouse being in that loaction instead of colliding with the buttosn themself

Hi, I'm playing on a Mac running os Sierra and when I open the game the music and box of stats shows up, but no people do, kept pressing y and n to see if the people were invisible, but no, they just never showed up... man I must be a terrible king.

I can't start the game for some reason. It just stays on the king or queen and the Royal Advisor doesn't come on screen. I can't do anything at all.

Never mind. It's just picky about what directory it's launched from.

I have a problem where it will not start the game when I press continue

When declining the barber's offer of a free haircut, he refers to me as a "king" even if I'm a queen.

(+1)

Hi I'm playing on a Macbook Pro and whenever I open the game I only see the king and the background, there's no people coming up to speak to me or anything.

Same thing happened to me. I really wanna play and nothings happening :(

sameeee :( 

it seems like such a great game so it's such a shame

I started the game but there are no speech bubbles at all
I am using a mac

Discovered a minor text glitch while playing as a Queen:

If it makes a difference, this was on day 74 and was the third time the jester offered to put on a show at that cost.

The browser version works fine for me, but the downloaded version has an issue where every so often the graphics will freeze but the rest of the game (sound, characters leaving and entering, Y/N/Space, saving, etc.) carries on as per normal, I just can't see what's going on because the graphics are stuck in the same place. This is an issue I have had with a few games so I'm thinking it might be whatever engine the game uses or something similar to that as I have made sure all of my drivers are up to date and I am on the latest version of windows 10. (Which I also may be a cause for this as it started after the update to windows 10). My laptop is the Acer Aspire E-5521. Other games that this happens in include Crossout, League of legends, Yandere simulator, Unturned, Half-life, RWBY Grimm Eclipse, Terraria, Skyrim, Goat Simulator, Everything (that's the title, just to clear up any possible confusion), Golf With Your Friends, Totally Accurate Battle Simulator and Kindergarten. I don't expect you to research all of these games obviously, but I didn't want to leave out any information that could be helpful. Thank you in advance.
