Update changed RPT file naming structure?

Recommended Posts

So it looks like the new update got rid of the regular old arma3.rpt and replaced it with timestamped rpt's. Cool if you wanna look for your latest, but man there are alot of programs that read the arma3.rpt and not Arma3_2013-xxx-xx-xxx-xx. And since we cant rename files in use by the game we cant designate the program to read out of the RPT in use, as its always changing. This is a bummer.

Is there a way to tell the server to continue to write to just the arma3.rpt per the server.cfg? IE logFile = "arma3test.rpt"; Because as of now it still creates both but only writes to the timestamped .rpt file.

Yikes. I haven't really looked into this, do these timestamped RPTs just endlessly mount up?

Not just RPTs but BIDMPs and MDMPs too, so every time you crash you get a new pack of files.

i put some though into this and we may have solution for this using symbolic link / junction ...

with the old 'static' log filename linking to active/last log new filename

discussing atm. with programmers

Maybe even a simple command (that works on windows as well as linux) that allows us to write to a file with the name of our choosing ... diag_file ["filename.ext", "string", timestamp bool].

Edit: with limited .ext allowed (.txt for example)
