[Accepted] RATS Console Log Output and Variables

There are 2 features I would love besides the program itself and everything in it.

1. To have RATS export its console log window that it flushes after a certain buffer size. There are contents that do not show up in the actual game server log that do show up in RATS. Would be amazing for troubleshooting.

2. To have the ability to assign, read, etc variables. This would be really powerful to be able to set variables and watch on a timer or event. I believe this is coming but just double check when that would be if you knew.

Thanks for everything!

Glad you're enjoying RAT still. =) I love feature requests, so please feel free to keep 'em coming. Doesn't mean I'll do them all, but it does let me know what people are thinking about and what is important to them.

Item 1: Do you mean that you want RAT to write to the game console log? Or write its own log file? If its RAT writing its own log file, this is already done. Check the logs folder. It doesn't flush the log window at that time, but I think I have the log window flushing the last 500 lines, every 1000 lines or something like that so it doesn't use too much RAM with that buffer.

Item 2: Yes, custom variables are planned, how they end up being used and read, etc... We'll see. Timed events are planned, but have a ways to go before implementation is where I want it. But all of these are planned and in some level of development already. =)

Item1: The only logs I get are player positions and the actual RATS log that gives RATS program logs like Alloc and BCM loading. I am talking about the console log of the telnet session. I have everything being logged to telnet in the game server and the game server logs do not show some items. One for example is if BCM gives an item or not after the command is executed. It does not show up in the game server log but shows in the RATS console window.

I use the remote feature. Not the local server feature.

Ok, not using the local server makes sense then as to why you don't have the logs I would expect. I understand now, thanks! =)
