- How the heck is a user supposed to know there *is* a logfile, unless they carefully read everyone else's problems in this thread
I've been very careful to give full descriptions in the first and several posts, and I (stupidly?) assumed that people might actually read the first one.
- Where the heck is it, especially with webstart?
See the first post. Its USER_HOME\.vscript\log.html
- webstart actually has it's own logfile, but you have to turn it on *globally* so you keep it off all the time until you need it, then turn it on for one run
Indeed the webstart log isn't very handy, and its only console output anyway. Unless theres actually an exception/stack trace in there I don't care about the contents, its mainly just a development thing.
- ...and, on the specific occasion above, I was only at the machine for 15 minutes, and didn't have a net connection until I'd left the machine
The sad reality is that if you want *everyone* to send you the logfile, *especially* with a JWS game, you have to popup a message which says "if it breaks, send file: .... to me along with a description of the problem".
Hmm, I did think about adding a pop-up dialog, but I thought that was a bit too intrusive. But I think I'll add it to the next version anyway. Thanks for the feedback.
