Your Game Debug Logs

Recommended Posts

The game generates a debug log each time you play. This can be very useful for the dev team to diagnose problems, especially crashes.

If you ever encounter a crash or the game becomes unresponsive, please report it to our Public Bug Database with as much detail as possible, and attach the debug log. 

On a PC

The log is written to the data directory for the game. For Steam, this would look like:
C:\TheDirectoryYouInstalledSteamTo\steamapps\common\TheLongDark\tld_Data\output_log.txt

On a Mac

For Mac, the debug log is written to:
~/Library/Logs/Unity/Player.log

Note that ~ above is your home folder (little house icon).

It's possible the Library folder will be hidden. You can make it show up by typing the following into Terminal: 
chflags nohidden ~/Library

 

The debug log gets overwritten each time you play, so remember to send it along before starting up the game again.

Are we allowed to attach logs (zipped) to posts? Otherwise it could be a mess to upload every time to a host, and they're not really that big (5k).
