Reporting bugs from Star Citizen Persistent Universe, Arena Commander, Star Marine
Document the bug
If you experience a bug while playing, it is best to document what is going on to help QA identify and reproduce the bug. This may be done by creating a screenshot of the bug occurring. Pressing the Print Screen button on a standard 104-key US QWERTY keyboard will save the image to your screenshots folder which will be located at
Roberts Space Industries\StarCitizen\LIVE\screenshots. You may also create a screen recorded video using software such as OBS, Nvidia ShadowPlay, AMD ReLive, or Intel Arc Control. Including the Session Information QR code in images and videos by enabling it in the Graphics settings will provide CIG more information about your session.
Search for the bug in the Issue Council
Look for bug reports that behave similar to what you have experienced. Search using keywords such as the name of the ship or object that was affected. Use filters to include reports that are open, confirmed, under investigation, and fixed. Use search operators as needed.
Ask #sc-testing-chat if you are having trouble finding a suitable report.

Create a bug report
