Unable to View Error Log



  • I am having trouble with a scenario that I am converting. When I try to run the scenario, it blinks back to the play screen. I noticed that with recent versions of TripleA, I can't view the errors under engine preferences. How do I see what the loading error is?

    @rogercooper I had the same issue converting a MOD and I can't remember what it was that was preventing it from loading. I'll try to dig through my versions to isolate it.

    @rogercooper can you post the map zip so I can take a look?



  • @redrum I was able to find the problem in the mod (A mapName issue). However, the ability to view the error log directly seems to have removed in TripleA. You can probably replicate the problem by messing the mapName on any mod.

    If you're on Windows, one less-than-ideal way to do this is to run the game from a Command Prompt window:

    1. Open a new Command Prompt window.
      • One option for doing this is pressing WIN+R on your keyboard, type cmd in the Open field, and press OK.
    2. Navigate to your TripleA installation directory.
      • Assuming the default installation location for the recent TripleA releases, this is C:\Program Files\TripleA. If yours is different, please make the appropriate substitutions below.
      • In the Command Prompt window, type each of the following commands and press ENTER:
        • c:
        • cd "\Program Files\TripleA"
    3. Run TripleA.
      • In the Command Prompt window, type the following and press ENTER:
        • java -jar bin\triplea.jar

    Anything written to the TripleA error log will also be echoed to the Command Prompt window.
