Title: Posting longer lists (log, etc)
Post by: SAS~Gerax on March 10, 2014, 05:25:48 PM
When you have to post longer lists like the log (http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,13457.0.html)or missions etc please do this:

When you want to post the entire text (log, whatever) see reply #2! (http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,39780.msg627220.html#msg627220)

When you want to post only relevant parts:

First shorten the list (log) as the forum editor can handle max. 50000 characters per reply,
otherwise the list (log) will be truncated! For more info see reply #1 (http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,39780.msg446116.html#msg446116)!

Then make use of the 'insert code' option for easier forum reading!

To use this find the code # button, located at the top of the editor, above and
to the right of the crying face, see the attached pic!

Here a example how the text should look like in your post then:

Code: [Select]
[10.03.2014 14:06:40] ------------ BEGIN log session -------------
[14:06:40] OpenGL provider: Opengl32.dll
[14:06:40] OpenGL library:
[14:06:40]   Vendor: NVIDIA Corporation
[14:06:40]   Render: GeForce 9600 GSO 512/PCI/SSE2/3DNOW!
[14:06:40]   Version: 3.3.0
[14:06:40]   Extensions: GL_ARB_blend_func_extended GL_ARB_color_buffer_float


Thanks to Panzerkeil who told me via PM that in Internet Explorer v10 (and above?) the option menu does not work (is not visible?).

So you have to type manually what you would get automatically:

How to shorten the log before pasting it?

Here a explanation by Storebror for what is important:

"Interesting are all this Java error lines mostly reported at the end of the log file.
Java issues can be identified quite simply they all look similar to this one...:"

Code: [Select]
java.lang.RuntimeException: Can't set property
at com.maddox.il2.objects.vehicles.planes.PlaneGeneric$SPAWN.getS(PlaneGeneric.java:735)
at com.maddox.il2.objects.vehicles.planes.PlaneGeneric$SPAWN.LoadPlaneProperties(PlaneGeneric.java:761)
        at com.maddox.rts.Spawn.get_WithSoftClass(Spawn.java:57)
at com.maddox.il2.game.Main.preloadStationaryClasses(Main.java:210)

"...starting with some kind of exception followed by a lot of "at ..." lines.
If you happen to have some issue at game start time already, please try to identify the error accordingly (see typical java error above).

Flight Model related errors sometimes can be found when you look at your log.lst lines where all the plane's FMs are being loaded. The load order corresponds to the order of the aircrafts appearing in your air.ini file, so e.g. if the A-26B is the 101st entry in the list, it will be the 101st FM to be loaded in your log.lst and you should see the FM error somewhere around there."

When you want to post all lines of the logfile or any other long lists we suggest to use:


to paste your text there and then paste the link here which you got from them.

How to do this:

1. mark and copy the text (a log, a mission, etc) you want to post.

2. Open https://pastebin.com/.

3. paste the copied text into the "new paste" field and click "Create new paste":

4. Enter the Captcha and click "submit".

5. When done mark and copy the adress you get and paste it into your reply on SAS.

Done.  ;)
