As this tool is still beta, I highly recommend every nclog user to get on the (low-traffic) newsletter for latest information about new releases and bugfixes to existing versions.
As many NeoCronics already know:
the console.log logs the neocron RPOS (your chatwindow in the lower left corner).
The main problem:
The console.log is just a standard log-file, which means it's a plain textfile. There is no structure whatsoever in this document. Here comes the main feature of ncLog to life -> XML.
ncLog takes the file and writes it into a structured XML. Together with the XSL file you have stylish output in your browser. If you play more than once a day your console.logs are all merged into the daily file.
date.xml examples (without XSLT):
The final output (XML with XSLT to HTML in a conventional browser):
A sample console.log converted to a date.xml
The date.xml's daily statistics, such as the killboard and spendings/income.
NOT tested: Win95, WinNT, WinME, Win98(SE) & Win2000
NcLog v1.2 DOWNLOAD
If you just want to use NcLog download the NcLog_v12_b1xx.zip file.
For developers, who desire to use the nclog.dll in your projects get the nclog SDK (Software Development Kit). It contains all sourcecode and documentation.
Due to time constraints I won't be able to continue NcLog development in the near future. If you have the skills and wills to do it yourself contact me and I'll sign you up as developer and in the long run maybe give you full admin rights on the project.
This application is only a beta product, which means it will contain glitches, unwanted behavior and even bugs. It will work when fed with in-use-case console.logs.
To submit NEW bugs please email me the detailed description of how to reproduce this bug, the console.log that produces the bug, maybe the part/s of the <date>.xml, along with any further information you think might be useful to fix this problem.
The illustration shows the workflow of a generic transcription of the unstructured console.log (ASCII text) to the xml structured data.
