Hey guys, post any complaints or gripes you have with the game.
Complaint Box Sticky Locked
For the time being, you can go fullscreen by pressing F11. Ill look into why your graphics settings aren't working.
Hey, Dasius, ShopSim is Such Great, but I just re-installed the game, and now I can't run it. It says, "An Unreal process has crashed: UE4-ShopSim." So if possible, reply and help me fix this, even though I lag a bit in ShopSim, it's a great game. -A Person who loves ShopSim

Hey, I am using a laptop, and right clicking will not let me pick stuff up. Could you make the controls changable?
I am not able to download/update to version 0.0.7 ... Am I able to do this at the moment??
OMG im sorry i cant play its sooooo laggy i have a diesent computer and really good internet any tips?
hey dasius, i'm trying to install my little blacksmith shop, and every time i try to play it an error saying " the program can't start because api-ms-win-crt-string-I1-1-0.dll is missing from your computer. try reinstalling the program to fix this problem " but i try to install it and it doesn't work, what should i do
I cant do anything... how do I actually start the game. I have downloaded the ZIP folder and I dont know what to do now.
I only have my windows pc unfortunately.
Hey Dasius, I just saw Jacksepticeye play your game, it looks so cool! Unfortunately i cant seem to play the game do to having a Mac, by any chance will the game ever be on multiple platforms, do you plan on expanding it? If not thats finr, ill just stick to watching youtube. let me know, Thanks ;) P.S your game has a really cool idea or plot to the games, i hope i can find a way to play it.
This was seven days ago so im guessing you already figured it out but im going to say it anyways for other people to see, Put it on the inventory, With all those weapon racks, once you leave it there the costumers will go and pick it up
No they do not currently but in the new update they may have a purpous btw i do know that was 25 days go
For your not being able to sell weapons problem, put them in the inventory, And they will go to pick it up, If you already figured it out, im going to leave this here for other people to see
To add to what Rena said, sometimes, you need to move the weapon away from the area and come back so that the AI can see the weapon. I'm looking more into why that happens and will try to roll out a fix soon.
You have the option of turning off the DOF in the graphics menu when you press escape. If you get around to it, let me know if that's not working.
thank you for answering i do love a dev that looks at what we have to say. the da cycles though still relativly short on this new patch are acceptable thanks for the upgrade on that xD my weapons are selling now maybe i was bugged before because i had tried bringing them to counter tot the customer and to inventory and they just would not take it! also appricate adding the how to build chart. depth of field button works least for me. only complaint now is one i just put in suggestions which is a leave now sir/madam button for rude customers.
Thanx Johnvry. The game is for you guys so it makes no sense if I didnt take the time to look through your comments. The only thing is I want to reply to everyone but I can't :( . I will add your suggestion to my trello board.
It's currently at 5 minutes but I can extend it to 10 minutes.
My next update will have be more stable. I'm still in the process of fixing issues witht the AI detecting weapons better.
Is there anyone standing outside not moving?
Did you open the shop? lmfao
It says Hello every time you click the anvil, I assume it's a debugging thing so you can see if you used the anvil.
That is definately a bug. I'll look into it.
Yeah, this happened with me as well.
me as well....
Hey Wealthyhermit, i don't think it's a bug, because i made some weapons, like the Spear or what ever the name is i don't remember. And a guy walked in and just out again, and then next time i looked my spear was gone. So check if you made some pre-made weapons, if yes, then check if their gone.
I think the price of the weapon depends on the amount of time the coustemer has been waiter + the actual value of if the weapon is say, silver or bronze.
also all my skills and levels are gone
Hey CrazedGamer, the patch should fix this issue. But it might not restore your saved game.
Can't get it past the UnReal Process Crash report.
Windows protected your PC
Windows SmartScreen prevented an unrecognized app from starting. Running this app might put your PC at risk.
Run anyway Don't run
This comes up when i re-downloaded the thing and extracted it all again. What does it mean?
I'm not at tin yet, but I feel yeah. Nobody pays shit for those greatswords.
I also experienced this exact same scenario (rip all my money), I'm pretty sure the game isn't counting the blade, which sucks because the blade is basically all the money.
I had that happen to me aswell, around $40 for a greatsword and i saw they only pay $6. It might be a bug as it's happening to many people
Chill my friend. It's a one man show. Let him have a chance.
it's a bug, he fixed it though, you wont sell a 100 dollar dagger and get it with such a small price right? after all its a shop you need to make money not to get poor haha btw it was like that with a greatsword, i got worse results
Just press the reset button in the graphics options menu.
It should work on 32 bit. Try reinstalling a fresh game if you patched the game?
Are you using a fresh install or did you patch the old files with the next files?
Try reinstalling the game and see if you still get the same error.
I'll work on a solution to avoid exploding crate contents. I like your suggestion and might implement it.
Thanks, nyaa. ^^;; I'm a programmer myself, so I know a thing or two about how it is. Glad I could help.
I was actually having the exploding crate contents problem because I was trying to stockpile grips, guards, ingots, daggers, etc. in a single big order at the end of the business day before sleeping for the next day. (Like a real shop!)
If you just order what you need as the NPCs come in, there's so few materials in each crate that it's fine, soo the game is playable for now... oo;
I do small optimizations every update. At the moment, play with the graphic settings to get it to run.
I do have something in the works for input mapping. can't give a timeline when I'll be able to have it out but it should be soon.
I would say, uninstall any non essential MV C++ installation you have on your computer, restart your computer and reinstall the newest version. Let me know if that helps.
Could you give me more information.
Which version of the game are you running. (You can see the version at the top of the large window outside.
Also , what are your computer specs?
Hey Lakita Starlight,
Maybe try restarting your computer.
Also check if your Nvidia drivers are up to date if you haven't tried that already.
I am looking to optimize the game, so I apoligize for the inconvenince.
I'm not familiar with the issue. Maybe just disable your monitor for the time being. Ill look to see if its a issue with Unreal Engine 4.
I had this problem as well. I would try to load the game in fullscreen (on my second monitor,) and the monitor would go black. It didn't turn off, though, it just stopped receiving input. Turning the affected monitor off/on fixed it.
It hasn't happened in the past two days or so, so I thought you patched it out. Maybe I was just overworking my GPU with something else at the time.
try reseetting the graphics from the graphics option this happens when reloading sometime as well.
I'll try to recreate the problem and get a fix out.
I'm aware of the issue and i'm looking into the cause. Will try to have the issue resolved for the next patch.
That would be the customer. Sometimes pushing them around helps
Since sometimes that doesn't work and there's nothing to do but wait out the whole day, could you please include an option to restart or skip the rest of the day when going to bed?
Now everytime I reload the game everything is really dark... I can see the outline of torches and barely see the sky but everything else is pure black
maybe prepare the blades and things [and one of each] so you can assemble while the next customer is being spawned? :)
If I shut down the store to do so after each customer then yes.
no I mean, first you will have a bit of a hassle, but as soon as you have enough to prepare blades for each type (3 each) you should be good to go. I managed to get all mithril, 6 of each type, in 2 RL days, 30+ ingame days :)
So at day 15 I think I already was prepared with some copper weapons so I could just throw them when the customer told me what he wants, and during the next spawn, I re-assembled the weapon I just handed out out of raw materials (blade, grip, guard) I had lying around already
I do plan on having that as a game mode.
any idea on when it'll be in the game, or if I can edit it myself right now?
At the moment, it's not possible but I might be able to squeeze it in for the next update.
Go to graphics settings and play with "Gamma" or press the reset button
There is no inventory, you use your mouse to pick up items. Its sometimes good to read the instructions the game gives you (on the sheets of paper). Also click the open sign on the door to open your shop.
Hey Caroline Turing,
I'm working on improving the system. It is in it's infancy stage. Graphic needs updating and the logic will get better.
You can turn up the gamma in the graphics settings if you want it brighter.
In my next update, you'll be able to purchase a new house with more space.
Thank you :) Glad you are enjoying it.
Unfortunately you cant optimize a game that needs constant updates as it takes time to optimize and a lot of mbs. Aswell as this it would be a pain in the ass to do because if the program finds a mistake it tells you at the end not during
Lol, well hopefully in the future he optimizes it. I'm willing to wait :P
what are your specs, because i run the game perfectly fine on all ultra at 1080p.
NVIDIA GTX 1050 ti
if im not mistaken the game seems to be locked at 60 fps, but that's not very much of a problem for me.
My specs are pretty crap. Intel Graphics Card, 4GB RAM, and Intel Pentium. As I said, it's a toaster, but it runs games from of its caliber just fine.
did you read the instructions and find the "radial display" ?
Press the key "Z" and then select the type you want to forge with the mouse
If your mouse curse does nhot sow, try right clicking.
but only works reliable for single ingot items?
All other type of items have to work! I never had this happen for a 2 or 3 ingot type of item!
If you had this issue with, let's say a hammer and a great sword, there seems to be a bug about great swords. I think it can happen when you stack them on top of each other (or any buggable item ON a great sword)
It is being worked on already, so for now make sure you do the anvil dragging and are cautious about moving items over items [and watch out for notifications about "you created ********"
if this material does not match, you might have to re-heat the blade and re-craft it into what you want it to be, this fixed a mithryl great blade that was visibly purple but registered as "copper" ... for some reason....
Currently combining metals is not an implemented feature, so when you put different materials on the anvil at the same time, the game has to choose which of those materials to output. In order to prevent exploitation, it'll default to the cheapest ingot on the anvil. Until the system changes, it's best to just put one material's ingots on the anvil at a time. Happy Smithing!
can you share your system specs so a person with more knowledge about the requirements or incompatibilities can comment on that then?* CPU
* Graphics Card
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950
16 gigs ram
6 core AMD processor, 3.5 GHz
Wow this should be not a big issue for your machine. Can you try restarting the game and going into graphic settings and hitting "reset" and "apply" ?
It might be relevant if you check the Nvidia Control Panel and Manage 3D Settings. It's possible some of those settings are interfering with the game's pre-programmed settings. Everything runs fine on my laptop which you've outclassed by leaps and bounds:
- Intel Core i5-6200U @ 2.3GHz
- 8 GB RAM
- Windows 10 Home 64 Bit
Which version are you running? I've not had this problem while I've played.
Try pressing the Reset button under Graphics options, then adjust the gamma slider. This fixes the problem most of the time.
Yep, others (including myself) have reported the same issue. It's likely that "heated" is the default state for blades/hammer heads, and that the cooled state is not saved with the game data. Then you reload the game and they all return to the default state. I'm sure the dev's aware of the issue and is working on a patch. Happy smithing!
I don't necessarily have a youtuber preference. I think they are all great including Draegast. I put Jack's video because he brought the game to a larger audience. Plus, a lot of people respect his opinion and enjoy his content. So it's no disrespect to any other youtubers who has covered my game prior to Jack or after, it's just he simply brought in more eyes to my game, so far, that I'm aware of.
The first day he showed it and my views and downloads jumped from 2000 to 20000 in one day and it continued from there. I feel I owe him. If I can put all the youtubers that supported my game on the cover page I would, but unfortunately I can only put one.
This does give me an idea though.
You're probably running version 0.0.7 or 0.0.71. This has been fixed in 0.0.72 (now ingots have to be on the anvil before you can select blade or blunt on the Z menu, and having 1 ingot on the anvil with blunt selected will never result in anything no matter how many times you hammer). Happy smithing!
I'll look into fixing that for the next patch. Does the reset button help?
Thank you !!
You can find and delete the settings file here...
Please refer to the Common issues post located here.
If you cant click the bbutton to reset the graphics then try deleting the settings file here
If you haven't already, please check these topics for possible solutions:
The assembled weapon will be in the orientation of the piece you are holding when snapping things together at the table. If you're holding a grip, and it's pointed downward into the table, then when it snaps to the blade the blade will be stuck down in the table. When it comes to guards, it's hard to tell the orientation of them. So I use this procedure to minimize the stuck weapon glitch:
- Place the blade right hand side of the table.
- Place the guard on the left hand side of the table.
- Grab a grip and drop it on the ground so it's flat with the ground (and parallel to the table surface)
- Pick up the grip and push it first into the guard, then into the blade.
Using this process, I rarely get weapons stuck in the table. Of course if something does it stuck, you can grab the weapon and use Alt and Ctrl buttons on your keyboard to rotate it free. Happy Smithing!
so can you make the houe a little less buggy
The work is being done on the Polearm glitch. Right now it doesn't even matter if the polearm grip on the bench, it'll steal blades (even normal and greatsword varieties). If you check the Trello page HERE you'll see that the issue is listed under Bugs and is currently being worked on. Remember this is Alpha. Happy Smithing!
If you haven't already, please check these topics for possible solutions:
also one thing i would like to see in game is some place where i can put my stuff an organizing system basically or like boxes to put my stuff in and a few boxes not just 1 maybe like 6 or maybe instead of boxes like cabneits or somthing idk just somthing to organize all the items i don't like having to look around the entire house for the item
I have answers to both of your questions. For the lag issue, go into the pause menu and go into graphics. From there you can set them to the best thing your computer can handle. For the boxes, there are boxes outside that are the same size as the delivery boxes, they also have the top removed so you can put stuff in them.
That happens to me, you just need to pull up the main menu, hit save (unless you were doing something you don't want to save), and then quit the game and restart it. The name will stay, just it takes some time to do.
If you're having trouble installing/launching the game, try following one of these great video tutorials:
- How to INSTALL/UPDATE My Little Blacksmith Shop! (Installation Tutorial/Guide)
- Install / Download / Update Step-by-Step Guide for Beginners
Also, please check out How to - Common Issues (Please Read First) which covers some of the other errors you may encounter.
Hope this helps!
Appriciate the critique.
The thing is is you're mad, and he already has these things. Double check your source of information.
Im not mad, i liked the game, but i was disapointed it didnt run on my computer, it being a low poly game it has no reason not to run, i can run overwatch on low settings on my pc and still get 60fps, when i lower the settings on this game i still barely ever get 20. There is no reason to "defend" the dev, the game's optimization is far far below awful, i know what im talking about(im in college getting my barachel in game development), im not just "some dude on the internet" trashtalking a game, i gave my legitimate criticism.
The game needs to be optimized! there is no denying that.
Still "Mr. Smartass", if your computer can't run this on the lowest settings, maybe it's your potato of a computer. You can do game development, but you sure as hell can't think for yourself.
Seriously, my (not even a gaming focused) LAPTOP can run this at 60fps on max settings. So maybe it's time to upgrade.
And even so, you might be able to run Overwatch fine because you had enough space to run it. Either delete some things to clear up memory, or UPGRADE!!!
@Redbaron14n Please try to keep the discussions civil and minimize the personal attacks. This is a gathering place for people who all love this game and want the best for it. Dasius appreciates critiques, especially ones that are well thought out and can help make this game even better and enjoyable by as many players as possible. Thanks, and Happy Smithing!
@atyourmercy Thanks for sharing your knowledge and skills. We all have different strengths that we can lend to Dasius to help him make this game its best. I personally have no experience with optimizing code, so it's great that there are players like you that can help guide Dasius to consider solutions he may not have considered. Thanks and Happy Smithing!
Try following one of these great video tutorials:
Hi alchemistjikan! As to the heated parts, the fix is coming in the next patch. With the dark/blurry problem, the best solution right now is what you're already doing: going into Graphics and pressing Reset, then adjusting Gamma and Resolution. As far as having problems rotating items, please try this procedure:
- Grab and hold the item with the Right Mouse Button (RMB)
- Continue holding the RMB and Press Alt (or Alt+Ctrl) and move the mouse around to rotate the item.
- While still holding Alt (or Alt+Ctrl) release the RMB - The item should remain in your grasp in the orientation you rotated it to
- Making sure the item is highlighted in your view, press and hold the RMB again, then release Alt (or Alt+Ctrl)
- The item should now be in your grasp in the new orientation!
Good to hear your working on solutions! One more quick question! Is the game programmed so that customers will only buy products you make while they're in your shop? Or can you have some stock prepared and sell that to them? I ask because my first customer asked for a one-handed hammer. I had one ready so i tried to give it to them, but they wouldn't take it. I dunno if maybe i didn't do it right? Or if you can't sell pre-made things.
The customers will only notice weapons that go from outside their detection radius to inside their detection radius once their in the shop. You have to take the weapon you want to give them outside their detection radius and give it back to them for them to notice it.
