Bug Reports

Reproducibility is key. Please provide as much information as possible so that we are able to reproduce the bug you describe. If possible, when you encounter a bug, go back and try to get it to happen again so you can be sure how it happens. Exact steps are incredibly helpful!

Screenshots: Providing a link to a screenshot (or even a short video) clearly showing your issue is immensely helpful. Simply attach it to your report.

Output Log / Crashes: Distance generates an output log which will help us greatly in diagnosing your issue. If possible, please attach your output log to your post (especially in the case of a crash).

  • On Windows: “[SteamFolder]/steamapps/common/Distance/Distance_Data/output_log.txt”

  • On OSX: “/Users/[username]/Library/Logs/Unity/Player.log”

  • On Linux: “/home/[username]/.config/unity3d/Refract/Distance/Player.log”

Beta Disclaimer: While Distance is in beta, experimentation comes first, stability second. We’ll do our best to fix game breaking issues as they arise, but our priority while in beta is to experiment with gameplay and features. Know that we read every output log and crash report, though it might take time to respond to each one.

  1. Game crashes while loading Sector 3 - Research

    When loading Sector 3 - Research in Campaign mode, the game crashes consistently just as loading seems to finish. I have not been able to start the level, and because of that it is impossible for me to continue the game's story.

    The log file mentions the game running out of memory before the crash. My system surpasses the minimum system requirements, so I'm not sure what the cause of the crash is.

    Sys Specs:
    Ubuntu 18.10 (64-bit)
    16GBs RAM
    Intel Core™ i5-3570K CPU @ 3.40GHz × 4
    GeForce GTX 660

        • Crash with Logitech MOMO Racing plugged

          Whether I launch the game with the wheel connected or if I plug it after, the game crashes.
          If I disconnect my wheel, the game launches fine.

          The MOMO Racing is quite an old wheel and it requires the Logitech Gaming Software 5.10. Even uninstalling it didn’t fix the issue.

          You can find attached a log for the crash-at-launch case and one for the plug-in-later crash.

            The game glitched during a MP session, then a few secs later crashed.

              • After launching the game it is stuck on loading/main menu loop

                The game loads up to 1/6, shows the main menu for a moment, then starts to load again in an infinite loop. The output log looks like discord-rpc.dll is broken. Can I disable discord totally via some launch options?

                • Distance seems to randomly quit without any error.

                  From time to time, Distance randomly quits. I don't know why, the last time it happened I played a bunch of levels, paused in one to do something else and after... 15-30 minutes (?) it just closed. No error, anything. But it doesn't happen often, quite rarely it seems.

                        • Steam crashes when I try to load distance

                          Lately, when I start Distance in Steam it never finishes loading and when I alt tab to the desktop, I can see that Steam isn't open anymore. I can still play other Steam games just fine. When I restart my computer I can open Distance again until *something* happens and I can't anymore. I'm on Windows 10. I'm not sure how to check which build of Distance I'm running since I can't load the game right now, but it is the latest version as of 20.dec.

                            With cheats enabled we can see the entire speedometer along with the bombox car vizualizer, however we can't see the red circle showing that cheats were used.

                            • Level Editor - Credits Orbs Are Super Buggy

                              If you have multiple Credits Orbs in the level editor, either added separately or duplicated, things get really glitchy. The editor freezes up for several seconds if you open the Properties tab on ANY object (not just the Credits Orb(s)), the Properties Panel is filled with glitched out inputs, and If you playtest the level, when you hit the Tilde [`] key to return to the editor, you will either end up with a previously loaded level, or be stuck in a glitched state in which the Editor GUI is displayed on top of the game. You can drive around,…

                              • Does not startup, "dbus_current_generation" failed [Ubuntu 17.04]

                                Through Steam: the game does not show a window. Until the "Distance" process is killed, this message keeps posting in the terminal:
                                process 25002: arguments to dbus_connection_ref() were incorrect, assertion "connection->generation == _dbus_current_generation" failed in file ../../dbus/dbus-connection.c line 2656.
                                This is normally a bug in some application using the D-Bus library.

                                If I run "Distance" from the terminal directly then a Blue full-screen window appears for about 10 seconds then switches to a really-messedup image of my desktop and crashes. My terminal output is as follows:

                                  • Sync played state with steam

                                    Please sync the medals and "played" state of levels with Steam. It would be great to have the campaign synced, too.

                                      • No screen on entanglement

                                        The game plays perfectly until the level called "Entanglement" The screen goes black, though there is still driving noises. The menu appears correctly.

                                        • Visual freeze during Abyss

                                          During Adventure Mode level "Abyss", the game appears to visually freeze during the glitch sequence where the blue city appears. Input and sound is still apparent, but the screen is simply frozen.
