S! Everyone,

I am thinking that the answer to this is yes, or else I cannot see how people would be able to put stats up on servers like Greatergreen.com does.

or does FB Daemon create the log?

I am working out how to use FB Daemon from www.greatergreen.com (http://www.greatergreen.com) and I have a couple interesting ideas on how I am going to utilize it, but I want to be able to parse the data.. where can I find the log file it (Daemon or FB itself) creates?

Thanks!

Jazz

The file is log.lst, it is located in your FB folder. If it is not there you must activate it in the conf.ini file. The log.lst file will record everyone's score, every minute! The scores for each flight will be the last entries of each pilot for each flight.

In your IL2-FB folder edit(using notepad) the conf.ini file, look for this section, about half way down:

[HotKey Console]
Shift Tab=Activate
[Console]
HISTORY=1024
HISTORYCMD=1024
LOAD=console.cmd
SAVE=console.cmd
LOG=0
LOGTIME=0
LOGFILE=log.lst
LOGKEEP=0

Change 3 of the last 4 entries from 0 to 1, leave LOGFILE=log.lst as it is.
If you want to keep only info for the most current flight do not change the LOGKEEP=0 value, the log will erase all old flights automatically. If you change LOGKEEP=0 to a 1, then when ever you play FB, the log.lst file will be appended with the new flight scores. It will grow very large over time so either keep it small by deleting old flights mnaually (notepad), or just delete the whole file and it will restart next time.
