Logging

Enabled

Set whether or not logging is enabled.

Mode

Set if the hack will log to a single Log.txt or a Logs folder.

Version History

1.23.6

  • Made it so the hack will create multiple logs if its unable to write to the log file instead of showing an error message and not logging.
    • In these cases, the hack will just stick a number on the end of the file name like Log (2).txt.
  • Fixed a crash when failing to open the log file with "Append" ticked.
  • Fixed a crash when suppressing RCF files and asyncronous file load requests using Custom Files with this hack enabled and "Include > Hacks" ticked.

1.23.5

  • Added settings to include Timestamps in the console and/or in log files.
  • Added a setting to include categories ([GAME], [MOD] or [HACK]) in the console and log files.

1.23.3

  • Added support for logging to a file.
    • Also renamed this hack to "Console and Logging" and updated its description to coincide with this addition.
  • Made whether or not the console is enabled based on a setting inside the hack instead of whether or not the hack is enabled.
    • Defaults to enabled.
    • This is also to coincide with the new logging feature as they can be enabled independently of one another.
  • Made it so this hack hooks the output function used by libpng so it can be affected by the "Include > Game" setting and included in logs.

1.22

Made the title of the console window "Lucas' Simpsons Hit & Run Mod Launcher Console" instead of the path to the game.

1.18

Moved this hack to the new "Developer" page.

1.9

Added this hack.
