Auto Logging
 
How can I have Cmud start a log every time I log in with a character and store that log in a specific directory?

I'll be wanting to log different characters so if they could have their name added to the log.txt file that would be great.

#EVENT onConnect {
#LOG %concat(%sessionid, " ", %char, " ", %time(yyyy-mm-dd), " ", %time(hh), "00.txt")
}


%char is only defined as the character name if you have auto log in set up i believe.
So you may need some other way of automatically determining which character the log is for.

#LOG defaults to the session folder, unless you specify a full path name.

So...to set up something like this...where would you create it? A trigger?

That snippet of code could be entered on the command line.

#EVENTs are like an alias, but they go off based on other criteria than a line of text from the game.
Though you can #RAISE them from inside a trigger.
The onConnect #EVENT will fire whenever you establish a connection between your client and the game server.
