Bugs

  • Fixed a bug where:
  • Crafting items were returning higher quality items too commonly.
  • Clicking Ectoplasm would cause an error (and not display menu).
  • Some sounds were getting clip/cut due to length/filetype.
  • Resources that had a 1% of dropping on dig/gather were never received.
  • Middle clicking inside a dialog (to use mouse scroll) would cause all input to be disabled until a restart took place.
  • Using mouse to move in an exact diagonal position would idle instead of move.
  • Many issues and bugs with using the first item in inventory (or in container) and generally any “first” in other game systems, such as the first monster, first environmental, etc. This is the thing that would lead to container errors, or your bedroll not decreasing in durability.
  • Dialogs would appear outside of screen if window was resized and the dialog was closed (would show up when re-opened).
  • You couldn’t carve/dig/pick-up a chest that was on a cave exit/entrance.
  • Many things were spelt incorrectly (typos) or had bad grammar.
  • Item menu would not close after dropping an item.
  • Repairing, reinforcing, preserving, or transmogrifying a stack of items would not loop through them correctly.
  • Game timers (for stat regeneration/decreasing) was not saved.
  • Firefox would report wrong in-game coordinates when using the zoom feature.
  • Fire Elemental’s fire could spawn on objects and other monsters.
  • Turning music off, then on again would cause error if no track was ever played yet if you tried to switch tracks.
  • Horizontal scrollbar would be taller than vertical scrollbar (for Chrome/offline version).
  • Repairing or reinforcing an item would not remove the red durability border/marker.
  • You could drop/throw an items with 0 decay to restore it’s decay to full when picking back up.
  • Legendary torches would decay into legendary ash.
  • Logic of gathering effectiveness based on slashing for lumberjacking and blunt for mining was not being applied properly, or the weapon’s attack/damage.
  • Offline version would freeze on occasion for some users.
  • The previous hint button would never cycle through all the hints properly.
  • Throwing an item on a stack of 12 would delete the item.
  • Dialogs could push past screen dimensions/resolution.
  • Parrying would gain more on taking damage and offer no gain on no damage. The logic is reversed now – you gain when you block (take no damage).
  • Idling while swimming would still increase stamina.
  • Quality of a crafted item could increase where it shouldn’t have been able to (like purified water).
  • Chicken hatching and spawning could potentially get out of control. Chickens no longer lay eggs, they drop two of them when killed to be used to drop and hatch on the ground.
  • Multiple crafts were resulting in more weight afterwards (many things with rocks).
  • Tattered Maps were not resetting when travelling to a new world while in containers.
  • You could not craft while facing deep water.
  • Plants that should not have grown in caves would still fully grow (just not spread, now they die completely after some time).

  • Image assets/graphics no longer scaled up. All assets are 1×1 and scaled via CSS/rendering.
  • Game input is now separated from rendering allowing no input to get lost like previously.
  • Wayward will now log all errors as well as important events to the wayward.log file inside the "logs" folder.
