Q: How do I share a Boundless game log?

If you would like to report a problem when you are playing Boundless please include the following:

Finding the Boundless game log:

The game generates logs in following locations:

On Mac OS X:

On most versions of Windows %LOCALAPPDATA% is a hidden directory. To access the file you can type the path to the file directly into Windows Explorer.

The game has been crashing for me a lot in the past week and I have never seen the “submit crash dumps” appear on my screen when i restart the game :frowning:

The auto upload is only available on Windows. So I assume you’re playing on Mac OS X.

I am playing on Windows 7…does it upload in the background? I have never had the option of sending it

Maybe its the server connection? I am on US east and on solum…usually no issues at all but lately this…

and then it crashes the game.

And after the crash once you restart the game a dialogue doesn’t appear offering to upload it??

Same thing has been happening to me. Game fails to respon ends up crashing after some time. No dialogue on startup.

If its not showing the dialog box Windows may still write a dump file to C:\Users\yourname\AppData\Local\CrashDumps. If so email to boundless@turbulenz.com.

No, it only offered the option to me once and none of the other crashes
ok, i will email to u :slight_smile:

I looked in the folder you mentioned, I do not have a crashdumps folder

I am running thru Steam, would it be somewhere else?

This needs to be updated for the OS X version to save confusion…

The log.txt file can be found in: MacintoshHD/Users/(YourHomeFolder)/Library/Logs/Boundless/log.txt

If you don’t see the Library, not to worry, it’s hidden. Just follow these directions to view it:
