Chat Logging
« on: May 10, 2005, 12:51:00 pm »
Ever wanted to recall something your 24 INT character shouldn't be forgetting? Or your Wise old cleric forgot something last week.

Under your [Game Options] section in the nwnplayer.ini add the following line:
ClientEntireChatWindowLogging=1

The chat log gets created in your logs folder naturally, something like nwClient.log

If you want to keep your logs rotating so they never get erased (very handy thing or else every time you start up nwn you will lose your last log), check out this utility on the vault.

Orth, I have the following three shortcuts on my desktop for each of the three servers:

C:\\NeverwinterNights\\NWN\\nwmain.exe +connect 64.127.106.68:5121 +password layoplayer
C:\\NeverwinterNights\\NWN\\nwmain.exe +connect 64.127.106.69:5121 +password layoplayer
C:\\NeverwinterNights\\NWN\\nwmain.exe +connect 64.127.106.70:5121 +password layoplayer

Is there a way to configure the utility you posted above to direct connect in the same manner?

Please update link or mail to me.

Thanks

I got this file (layo-west.bat) on my desktop:

@echo off
SET NWN_PATH="D:\\NeverwinterNights"
SET GLR_PATH="C:\\Program Files\\Gnomish Log Rotator"
cd %NWN_PATH%
start /w nwmain.exe +connect 64.127.106.68:5121 +password PASSWORD_GOES_HERE
cd %GLR_PATH%
glr.exe

You might want to change the paths if you have installed NWN and the gnomish log rotator somewhere else.
And change PASSWORD_GOES_HERE to the layo password
For layo-central.bat and layo-east.bat you just have to change the IP (64.127.106.68:5121) to
64.127.106.69:5121 (central) and 64.127.106.70:5121 (east)

That's very usefull Slipper for those who cannot figure it out, like me.

This is a link to Cleave. A program I use to read through the logs.

    I've been using chat logging for months already and look what I've ended up with!



    Now that's what I call a log!

    This is a great tip...except I haven't been able to make it work. I was wondering if anyone had some suggestions as I've not been able to find any help on Bioware's NWN support forums.

    When I opened the nwnplayer.ini file, there was no [Game Options] section, so I created one and added the single line below it:
    ClientEntireChatWindowLogging=1

    However, the chat log file is never updated or saved after exiting from NWN. Neither is the chat log file ever updated while the game is running. The file exists (nwClient.log) but the file size is always 0 and is always blank whenever it is opened.

    Has anyone else seen this, or perhaps have any advice regarding another approach?

    Ok I Downloaded all 3 programs mentioned.
    I opened nwn in clobber with Cleave open and yet no chat log.
    I also logged in with the other on open and yet all chat logs are 0 KB.

    Is there any chance someone can post a walkthrough for us computer dumb?

    I think you forgot to add a line in the nwnplayer.ini

    Under your [Game Options] section in the nwnplayer.ini add the following line:
    ClientEntireChatWindowLogging=1

    I did that.
    One time I got an error message.
    otherwise the logs stay empty.

    I'm seeing the same thing, the files are being created and rotated, but there is never anything there.  What did I do wrong?  I put the line:  ClientEntireChatWindowLogging=1 in both nwn and nwnplayer, but no dice.
