    There are several excellent logfile readers out there. This one is not as good, but is web-based, so there is no need to download any program. Just chose the log file and press 'Analyse' to read it.

    hmmmm, couls someone enlighten a poor newbie, please.

    What is a logfile ? What is so good about reading them ?


    I am sure the answer is somewhere in one of the many posts of this Forum, but if someone in the know could give me a quick answer, that would be real nice.

    Thanks,
    Nigel

    In MTW options, there is one about saving 'logfiles'. Thoses are text sum up of the battle, with all upgrades per units, kills, routed, captured all that. They are saved in the logfiles folder.

    You see the screen you have at the end of the battle? With your units, their kills, all that? Well, imagine that for all armies, not only your own.

    Why is it interesting? It gives lot of information about units used by your opponents, what upgrade they use, and what are the most efficient.

    Why a logfile reader? Going throught a logfile in a text format is somehow... cumbersome... Hence the idea of putting it together in an easy to read template, which is what is achieved by An logfile reader.

    Hope it answers your question,

    Louis,

    Have been mentionned here;

    Wolf logfile reader

    And to be fair, there is also a great Bear logfile reader, and without doubt plenty of other logfile readers. Feel free to also promote those Sinan .

    I don't think there is any issue using any of those, but like Elmo, I appreciate the fact that this one is webbased, that you don't have to dl anything, and put some .dll into some operating folder to get it to work.
    It really makes it easy to use, and IMO somehow better than other logfile readers. So I bump this thread thinking this tool deserves a wider audience. I am not going to bump all logfile readers thread ... but again feel free to do so Sinan

    The newer version of log reader is:

    Log Read Vesion 1.2c

    This now has stats incorporated, so you could also see what is killing you It works only on viking invasion (v2.0).
