Generating Logs

by Jon (Updated on 2014-01-28)


You'll often be asked to "Generate Logs" if you post up a bug report or ask for help.

 

How to Generate Logs

Go to this menu item. Save it out and attach to your forum post.

Starting in Stencyl 3.0, the item is located at Debug > Logs > Generate Logs.

 

Why are logs useful?

  • The error reports tell us exactly where in the code things died.
  • Veterans can identify problems they've seen in the past.
  • We can roughly trace what you did along the way.

 

How to tell someone else to generate their logs

Use this code in your forum post.
