    Where is the "Combat Log"?

    Using the parser file navigation I have searched anything and everything related to Rift. I see all my screenshot, character and UI type of files but nowhere in that area is this "combatlog" that this parser says it needs in order to operate. I've opened every Rift related file I see and nothing. What am I doing wrong here?


    I currently am in game and my /combatlog is active.

    You may want to try the FAQ section for this.


    Edit: you can find it here.

    If the game is creating it properly it is your root rift directory, where the rift.exe files are.

    Some people need to run Rift as an administrator to get it to write the combat log.

    It took awhile but the combatlog file has finally showed up. One kill as stated in the original thread and it took all this time. But still unaccessible by the parser.

    Edit: Asking in rift forums my bad.

    Reading the combatlog it shows someone elses fight and not the kill I made to add data to the file. Wierd.

    So my location is as follows...

    C:/Program Files/ RIFTgame/ CombatLog

    The parser isnt prompted to pull from that location and dont give me the option. Should I move the file into the files the parser sees? Will that screw me up in any way?

    So your saying that if you hit "set log file" and go to that directory you do not see combatlog.txt?

    and no, don't move the file, the game will only write to that location

    The combatlog will record combat going on around you as well. It just doesn't capture what you're doing. Parsers separate that information for you.

    The easiest way to create a log, while in town, is to hit up the dummies and /combatlog and you should see one created quickly.

    Verb I dont see anything like what your talking about. Perhaps I downloaded an older version or something? I got it from the link on your main page. The area where it searches the combatlog file is coming from the parser when I click "start parsing". That is the only thing I've seen that prompts a file search. I may be downloading it wrong or something because somewhere in these forums it says something about updating the parser and I dont see anything that would do that.

    I think whats happening is the parser is not letting me search for .txt files.

    Menu -> set log file

    Should bring up a file chooser

    select your combat log.

    Shows as follows (vista 32 bit):

    Look in: RIFT game


    assets
    Download
    imageformats
    New
    screenshots


    File Name: C: Program Files/RIFTgame

    Files of Type: blank

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Clicking the "Files of Type" does not let me select any options. It's just blank. And I cannot type .txt or anything at all.

    Hmm, can you screenshot the settings tab of the parser for me?

    should say files of type .txt, and not give you the option for anything else

    Thank you, I'll get those old links sorted out. Hope you have better luck with the current parser.

    By the way, I found this in the official forums. I have not tested it yet but this could perhaps help alot of those that download your parser.

    "* To turn on combat logging permenantly, go to your user/application data/Rift folder, and edit rift.cfg.
    Change LogCombatConsole = False to True.
    "
