The BUG command is used while in-game to report a bug to Simutronics staff. The command works differently depending on which front end is being used.
The BUG command in-game sends an email to the appropriate staff member.

If you have things like screenshots that may be useful let us know in the BUG report and we'll contact you if the GM who ends up handling the bug thinks it will help.



BUG {category};{title};{text}
ex. BUG room;The description is missing;The room description is blank for the interior of Abu's House of Weapons.


For Genie and any other FE with a mapped semi-colon:

BUG {category}\;{title}\;{text}
ex. BUG room\;The description is missing\;The room description is blank for the interior of Abu's House of Weapons.


For Vipmud the semi-colon is mapped as follows:

BUG {category}~;{title}~;{text}
ex. Bug room~;The description is missing~;The room description is blank for the interior of Abu's House of Weapons.
