How to use
The Help channel can be accessed by pressing Ctrl+T in game and selecting Help. Alternatively you can press the "New Channel" icon at the north east side of the console.
Common Questions Asked in Help Channel
I cannot use my browser while playing Tibia This often happens because Tibia is using up all of your computer resources. Lowering your Framerate can help, as it will reduce the amount of computer resources set aside for Tibia, leaving some open for other programs like your browser. Click on Framerate for detailed information on how to change it.
I cannot open this monster! Any container on a rope spot (including monsters, backpacks, bags, boxes, a dead player, etc.) cannot be opened. This is a known bug. Simply move them off the rope spot, and you can open them normally.
I got a bug report! Bugs are problems with the game. You can have graphics bugs (for example, walls where there should not be walls) or program bugs. The most serious bugs will kick you out of the game and create an entry in your error.txt file, which are reported automatically to CipSoft upon your next login.
All bugs should be reported to a tutor (please don't use control-R for bugs!). Tutors and Senior Tutors can report bugs to Customer Support using Control-Z.
Whoever takes your bug report will ask you for information about it, and in most cases, try to recreate it. Please be patient with the folks taking your bug reports; they generally must be submitted from where the bug actually is.
