whats the target of print?

  • #1, by rhavin grobertSunday, 05. November 2017, 16:41 2 years ago
    In oder to debug (read: in order to guess differences between expectations by documentation and real behaviour of implementation^^) i came across print, which prints to *where*?

    I already found the console (documentation: "Nähere Informationen dazu finden Sie in einem separaten Kapitel." - ??), but where does my print print to?

    Or if you are using VS5 then you can read the log in the developer console while running your game via the editor. Press TAB to open & close the developer console.

    Also here's a quick tip: If you hover the mouse over the icons to the left of the search bar on the editor it will dropdown a menu. Click on the option that says "goto messages.log" to open up the folder containing the log files, save files & config.ini for your opened project.

    well, does not seem to work.

    I added a simple print("test") to a script I know that gets executed, but while the function does what it should do, the print goes to nirvana, there is no 'test' in the messages.log

    I need some way to output values for debugging.

    Open up the options for VS editor. Go to player & set log level to info.
