As an early-access game Beacon is bound to have a few bugs or other issues. You can help us help you by providing a descriptive report about any bugs or odd things you might encounter by following this simple template:

  • Let us know what kind of issue is this:
    • Bug: general things like "I fell off and my weapon no longer works"
    • Crash: the game crashed -- bummer
    • Other: general fluff like "this box is floating", or "there's a typo here". We know about pretty much every sorting-issue too, so don't worry about reporting that.
  • Your PC specs: OS, GPU, RAM, etc.
  • A screenshot or video or gif of the problem. It's not required, but it always helps!


You can also drop-by our Discord server and use the #bug-reporting channel here:

Hello, I can't edit my keybindings. I tried to modify the left movement and now it dissapeared and I have like 4 times move right binded to the same key.

Is there a way I can reset the keybindings somewhere?

Even in an ini file?

Regards

Hi there! I believe we found a makeshift solution on Discord for the time being (but posting here for posterity!)

You can delete the input file to reset the controls, located here:
C:\Users\%USER\AppData\LocalLow\Monothetic\Beacon\settings_input.xml

We'll look into fixing the key bindings menu as soon as we can!

Thanks

Bug - Changing resolution in the options menu makes the mouse cursor vanish.

Once this has happened, the player can hit Enter to start a new game or hit Esc to close the game and return to Desktop.


Bug - Changing resolution to 1920 x 1200 makes the Controls options unreadable.

See attached screenshot.


My specs probably don't affect these, do they?

Developer

Hey! Thanks for bringing this to our attention & sorry you're having these issues!
We'll look into it as soon as we can!

Crash - On starting the game for the first time it crashed just after displaying the Unity 5 splash screen.

  • Upon attempting to start the game a second time, it made it to the main menu, displaying it at minimal resolution, I switched the resolution to something higher, mouse dissapeared so I restart the game. Every subsequent start of the game failed, with the program crashing after displaying the Unity 5 splash screen.
  • I noted that the AppData/LocalLow/Monothetic/Beacon directory only had a Unity folder and ./Unity/{local.hexadecimal}/Analytics had two files 'config' and 'values' which were both 0 bytes in size. @Aseaton in the Discord suggested that I might find a log file in the same directory as the executable but it had not been written.
  • I managed to get the game working by using Window 10's comparability mode. Could reach the menu, set a screen resolution. Could start a new game. Could move around. Appears to run correctly.
  • Trying to narrow down which of those setting was critical was unsuccessful, as even with no compatibility settings the game started up. This may suggest its part of some Unity 5 initialization overhead? Or that it doesn't like my integrated GPU? Or that it doesn't like the 4K monitor of my iMac?

The game crashed at boss fight on level 3, then "crash.dmp", "error.log" and "output_log.txt" has been created. How do I send it? The files are too long to post here.

Hi there! Please email it to mcorsaro@monothetic.com thanks! 

We will definitely look into it :)

Any ideas?

Developer

If you're still having that crash, our best guess on how to fix it is to try updating your video drivers! We also just updated the game to 1.0.4A with some fixes so be sure to download that as well. 

yep that was it, thanks! Game looks nice. Good job. I'll download updated version.
