[How to Post] Crash Reports Formatting

Hi all,

Alot of people don't seem to know how to make crash reports, so I've provided a format which can be used. 

I've written other "How To" threads such as the server unbanning report format, bug reports format and a suggestions format.





Checklist: Do before you post a crash report

Search for the error in the crash report. 

Check your list of mods and make sure they are all made for the version of Minecraft you are running

Research the error in the /SWD Forums/Dalek Mod thread for a similar error. 
Useful thread: 
[Reference] How to read crash reports before posting





Crash Reports Format: Copy and paste into your post please


Dalek Mod version:

Where you downloaded the mod from:

List of mods installed:

Minecraft Forge version: 

Location of crash (e.g. On server/singleplayer):

What you were doing prior to crash:

Describe the problem please:

Crash Report in a spoiler : Use the "(?)" button






Finding errors in a crash report:


Look at the first lines of the crash report. That will tell you the answer. E.g. java.NoClassfound.def


Also look at the bottom of the crash report with the list of mods. Check 'errored' or 'not constructed'


This link here will tell you if you don't understand.
