What is a client log (.clog) and how do you obtain it?
 

 

The client log
Client logs (file extension: .clog) are files generated by the War Thunder client and show a reflection of all the actions a user has performed in one secluded game session. As soon as the launcher initializes the start of the game, a new client log is being started, which is finalized when the client is closed (the game session ends). Besides recording the actions of the user, it also records the client-side calculations and has a built-in error catching system, that will allow the technical administration to identify game code or synchronization issues efficiently.

Client logs are being saved once after a game session has ended. If you have an error that is reproducible, you can help increasing the expressiveness of your client log by starting a new game session, reproducing the error and then exiting the game manually. This way, the client log is very small and the error can be identified more easily.

Please note that for all bug reports, only the .clog file ("<filename>.clog")is required. Please do not attach the .clog file that includes the cef extension.

How to obtain your client log:

Client logs are created automatically, so the only thing you need to do is to locate them.

DOWNLOAD FROM GAIJIN ENTERTAINMENT WEBSITE

 

1. If you have downloaded War Thunder from the Gaijin Entertainment website, follow the installation path that you've specified during installation and locate the '.game_logs' folder

2. Identify the client log (.clog) file that was created during the session in which you recognized the issue or bug. This is usually the latest file created, so sorting by date is the easiest option.

The files itself are also time-stamped, and follow this scheme: YEAR_MONTH_DAY_HOUR_MINUTE_SECOND_ID.clog

 

3. Attach the client log to your bug report
