    The plan right now is to release a updates to address as many of these issues as we can in frequent patches, but we'll need player reports to be as detailed as possible in order to properly identify/fix these bugs. Our priority obviously will be bugs which impact gameplay like crashes.

    There are still some issues which have been reported, but are not listed above. This is usually because we haven't seen enough reports/gotten enough details to identify it for escalation. If you've having an issue not listed here please report it with as much detail as possible so we can evaluate it.

    If you have a crash bug, please attach your log and save file, thanks!

    • Windows: %appdata%\StardewValley\ErrorLogs
    • Linux and Mac: ~/.local/share/StardewValley/ErrorLogs
    Save files:
    • Windows: %appdata%\StardewValley\Saves
    • Linux and Mac: ~/.config/StardewValley/Saves

    Many of these issues have threads dedicated to them - posting details either here or in the corresponding thread would be helpful - we'll do our best to make sure any new info/workarounds are communicated in both places to make sure players can find that info easily.

    If you're reporting a bug which was originally reported outside the forums please make sure to add a link to the original post - we may need to contact that player directly for more details.

    We're going to continue monitoring these and any newly reported problems, so please provide as much information as possible for any issues you may run into! Thanks everyone!!

    UPDATE: 1.3.4 is live now on the beta branch with a number of bugfixes, included issues are marked (Fixed).

    UPDATE: 1.3.5 is live now.
    Moving/Demolishing Buildings - There have been a few reports tied to moving cabins/buildings in mutliplayer while other players are on the farm. To limit issues and allow us time to isolate issues related to this we're temporarily disabling moving of cabins, and temporarily disabling demolishing and moving of any kind of building in multiplayer mode. If you can't remove buildings or move cabins in multiplayer this is not a bug!
    Only seeing Connect via LAN option - The suggested workaround to download visual c++ redistributable 2013, x86 version has resolved this issue for a number of players. Alternatively try leaving the game at the title screen for a minute or two before opening co-op. Game fixes are in development which we hope will resolve this.
    UPDATE: 1.3.6 is live.
    It includes a number of fixes, and some new connection checks to help make sure the game is connecting to Steam before launching into multiplayer from the start screen. There are more updates we're working out for players having issues with join options - until then the above linked workaround has successfully resolved the issue for many players.

    UPDATE: 1.3.7 is live.
    It fixes an issue which was introduced this morning and extends the fix for wallpaper being removed automatically to floors as well.

    UPDATE: 1.3.8 is live.
    This update should address the frame rate issues related to machines, specifically lighting and scaling animations causing lag.

    UPDATE: GOG Galaxy users can now opt into the beta branch using the same password - details on how to opt into betas on GOG are here.

    UPDATE: 1.3.9 is live on Steam and GOG.
    It includes a fix for the issue which was introduced that removed furniture/wallpaper/flooring from Sheds. If your save has already lost furniture in sheds this will not restore it - but this will prevent the bug which removed the furniture from happening going forward.

    This build also includes a vcredist update to help address the "LAN Only" issue many players have been seeing. This is still being worked on, and we're aware this package dist doesn't apply to Linux players - a full fix is still in development!

    UPDATE: 1.3.10 is live on Steam and GOG.
    Lots of fixes included in this update - LAN Only option to connect, travelling cart out of stock message, and torch related framerate issues and more.

    UPDATE: 1.3.11 is live

    UPDATE: 1.3.12 is live on Steam and GOG.
    The major changes in this patch are related to network optimization. A number of things which were causing network traffic have been greatly optimized - but some could cause new issues, so keep an eye out for any new behaviour. Also the game should now disconnect players who have latency which would cause their clocks to desync. Hopefully the optimization changes will reduce instances of this, but if you find yourself disconnected after this update and don't have a crash log - attaching your save file to either the report or a private message would be helpful to evaluate if there's something in the game triggering the latency.

    UPDATE: 1.3.13 is live on Steam and GOG.
    The new crashes related to buying furniture were from a bug introduced last patch when we fixed something else. That's now been fixed, sorry about that! Also reward levels in mines now have a chest for each player in multiplayer - a frequently requested change!

    UPDATE: 1.3.14 is live on Steam and GOG.

    UPDATE: 1.3.15 is live on Steam and GOG.

      I'm having an issue where the game crashes if I try to open the menu with the ESC key. It's happened three times in a row now. Not entirely sure what that could be related to since I'm not running any mods.

      I started a new game, and as soon as I pressed ESC the game went into not responding, and then it crashed and closed.

      EDIT: Trying to open the menu at all crashes my game.

      Crashlog has been attached.

              Creating a Account here to report this bug and hopefully more in the future, hope it helps!
              So here is a bug:

              If u access the chest and recolor it using the colors above, the icon right next to the colors change the chest appearance accordingly.
              If u then close the chest and reopen it, the Icon is then ... strange/ not explainable, it doesn't affect gameplay in any way or is noticable but it just is there just wanted to report it, if u then recolor the chest it is all back to normal even the same color.
              Below is the strange icon.

              I hope I can help, if u need further information for this occasion I am willing to help!

                    Hello. Me and my friend found a bug. When we break an object at the same time, the object duplicates. The objects we tried are signs, rocks and trees.

                        I noticed that it is possible to place multiplayer cabins in front of hardwood stumps, if the player is so inclined. After doing so, it is possible to enter the cabin and, from as far as I can tell, soft-lock yourself inside it, as you cannot use your starting ax to break yourself out.

                              Me and another user slept on the first night and everything went ok, but when we put stuff in the shipping box and went to sleep(on the second night), I couldn't move my cursor or type in chat while in SDV (I was fine when I was not in my SDV tab, and the other user was fine). I literally couldn't do anything.

                                This seems to work for the last hit, if one player hits the tree until only one hit is required then the effect also seems to trigger under said conditions

                                  I planted some seeds. during that time, my friend is at the town. when she got back, she noticed that I missed a spot on my 3x3 fields; but, on my screen, it is already planted. So she use a hoe, which on my screen, removed my seed that was planted then she planted another one. This might be a sync issue.

                                    I try to load up my singleplayer save on the beta version and every time I'm about to get out of bed, the game crashes. I tried to three times now, it done it all times without fail

                                    Edit: Im in year 3 if that matters

                                      This happens on one of my save files as well, but not on the other.

                                      I also noticed a minor visual bug, when moving from screen to screen on the horse, the horse disappears temporarily and you can see your character still in the sitting position, but floating. Like Zenyatta.

                                          There might be some inconsistencies with the weather reports. I was in my friend's game on day 2 and the weather report from the TV in my cabin said it would be sunny, while the host's weather report in their house said it would rain. The next day it did end up raining, so my weather report was inaccurate.
