DF Log
« on: October 12, 2018, 10:38:44 pm »

I've just uploaded a utility I made to watch the Gamelog.

windows: http://dffd.bay12games.com/file.php?id=14067
mac: http://dffd.bay12games.com/file.php?id=14068
linux: http://dffd.bay12games.com/file.php?id=14069

It syntax highlights the gamelog in real time (might be familiar to MUD users) and has three modes:

Default:

Spoiler (click to show/hide)


Compact:

Spoiler (click to show/hide)


Ultra-compact:

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

(ultra compact is great for people who have REGULAR_CONVERSATION enabled in fortress mode.)

I generally keep it running on the side:

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Uploaded v0.0.3:

just uploaded a new version.

this update should perform a little better:
  • more highlighted phrases
  • faster response
  • less UI thrashing (so no lockups, hopefully),
  • will allow one to scroll back through the gamelog

This looks great but I can't seem to get the font to change sizes with the CTRL keys. Other than that I'm loving this!

FYI you’ve used the ultra compact picture for both normal compact and ultra compact examples

looks like font resizing was only working in my debug builds. i'll make sure to fix that.

ah thanks! i've been sort of conflicted on the screenshots i chose (just went with my most recent gamelog entries and they're kind of boring...), so i think i've been subconsciously avoiding them.

Which font do you use?
On a Mac, DF Log runs in retina (icons are high res), but font looks very pixelated, probably because font itself is low res.

Browser + DF in window mode (2x upscale, no retina) + DF Log.

It's not super-important, because DF itself doesn't use retina unless in full screen mode, and you can't see another app while DF is in fullscreen even if you have multiple displays.

Update: I guess something changed in the latest Mac OS, because now I can use second app while having DF in 4k

Thank you! I don't mind pixelated font too much, as long as it's pixel perfect it still looks great.

Love the utility so far! Helps a lot with keeping up with what is going on.

The only issue I've had so far is that when my dwarves are training in the barracks, the full sparring log tends to clog it up a bit.  Anyway to eliminate the sparring details from the log?

Thanks!

Hey thanks for all your hard work.  It looks great so far. I'm excited to see where you go with this.   

Just fyi I get this error when I close the application on windows 10 64. 

It seems like it happens when a read is occurring or something. Right now there is a lot of activity in my gamelog because of combat.  Anyway I hope this helps in some small way.

thanks! yeah, that's likely because the gamelog in between the time the window was closed and the app shut down. i think i've taken steps toward making that a more rare occurrence.
