FG Console in FG version 3.4.0

Postby Raptor » Mon Sep 25, 2017 10:09 am

Recently i have started using FG 3.4.0, earlier i was using FG 1.9.1

In FG 3.4.0 console screen goes off if FG crashes, so i cannot read the error in Console window but in older FG 1.9.1 console screen can be seen even after FG crashes.

Is there any way i can dump FG Console Output :?:
so that i can read it later on in order to find out the reason of crash.

I suggest using a modern FG version - it creates a log file.

If you start flightgear from the command line (i.e. from an already open "DOS" window with the command fgfs or fgfs--launcher) you will not loose the info.

3.4 was prior to the changes I made to support Win32 console better - so probably it will open a console window which will close the moment an exception occurs.

Best solution is to upgrade to 2017.3 as the console support is much better (along with a myriad of other things).
