We are now offering a method to access your Blackops log files without having to go through the control panel. This is designed to be used by software developers when they are writing tools, but you can also use it to access your own logs.
In the 'Info' tab of your control panel, you will find a 'View Log URL' link. If you go to this URL, you will see the last 1MB of your log file. You may access this page once every 3 seconds. This does not require that you disclose your control panel username/password to any rcon tool.Developers:
Please see http://logs.gameservers.com
before you attempt to make use of this. It contains important information about restrictions and limitations of this feature.
There are some cvars that may make access to this more useful:
- g_logsync 1 - This will force the server to clear the log buffer after each event. Doing so will make the log update more frequently when the server has few actions going on.
- g_logTimeStampInSeconds 1 - This will make the first entry in the log file (usually the number of seconds since the server was started) become a unix timestamp instead.
2/23/2011: The delay has been dropped to 5s, and the log size to 1mb.
2/24/2011: The delay has been dropped to 3s.
