/savemsgs?

Post by Zehra » Mon Jun 19, 2017 1:23 am

Hi all,

I've noticed that /savemsgs saves all content which is displayed by default on the console.
Sadly this does not provide the option to save only specific content and the option of saving content automatically.
(Such as only kills or flags grabbed or chat messages.)
The option of being able to automatically save content and have it already sorted would be a nice feature.

The -echo and -echoAnsi parameters to the 'bzflag' binary will, on Windows, log to a text file automatically and on other platforms will write the output to stdout, so it can be redirected to a file or program using standard redirection or piping.

Thanks blast.

This works pretty nicely.
Only thing is it overwrites the previous log if I start it again.
