On the steam version, when embarking in an untamed wilds biome, zombie and howling wind ambience plays. This is unrelated to the evil biome as I tested it multiple times on untamed wild biomes on different maps. Some other people have also complained about it.

Wasn't this fixed in v50.03, or did that cause it?

I think the Kitfox Discord is the best place to report bugs at the moment.

Hope for Toadys sake that there will be a more organized place for bug reports, I would not want to browse through that much of a backlog (where bugs, feature requests and opinions are all voiced in the same channel without any real bug tracking feature)

Afaik, the people who sysadmin the bug tracker are also the people who sysadmin the wiki and also dfhack-afflitiated, so I imagine they're all quite busy :)

Haha, yeah, there is a fair amount of crossover.

My understanding of the situation right now, though, is that Toady is working on moving to a new version of the bug tracker software (which will be more secure and also look much nicer). As you know, Toady is also quite busy right now.

I want to use the new version of the bug tracker. I already had an old account and tried to login via Kitfox using my old login data. Got the following error:

Your account is disabled or locked (due to too many failed login attempts) or the user/password you entered is incorrect.

Now does that mean that my old account was transferred and simply needs to be unlocked or do I have to create a new account?

Although apparently a bug means that if you were previously registered on the old Mantis, the bug report email that you spent hours working on will be met by the prompt reply "Access Denied!".
Hopefully that one's sorted soon...

We (managers) can still see the emails you send in. I'll try to create a ticket from yours, although the drawback is that you won't get notified for updates.

So I can keep sending bug reports and ignore the auto-reply?
There's a couple more that aren't on the tracker yet I think.

Do bug reports emailed via the new instructions receive an acknowledge reply?

The bug tracker states you should search before sending a report in (normal) but there is no search option on it (less normal)

There is, it's just frustratingly obtuse.

To be clear, the View Issues page is the search page.

Any news on if the tracker is accepting emails yet? I see my report never made it. So annoying after spending the time to investigate, test and write a report. Is more info needed, was it just cast into the trash. No idea. But I am losing track of the "oh, that's not on the tracker I should report it" situations...
