Thanks for this info, I didn't know that it was there and has been very enlightening!
But I'm finding these logs VERY lacking.
I've tried a few different ways of pulling the info from the logs, primarily by grepping
"allowed to join" and
"allowed to join" (for joining)
"removed connection" and
"disconnected player" (for leaving)
I've also tried grepping:
"Connected new client" (for joining)
"Disconnected player" (for leaving)
HOWEVER, I've run into problems with all of them as they often miss BOTH people joining and people leaving. I've been testing it on myself.
I'll join, and play the game for a good 20 minutes or sometimes even more, then quit out (tried both quitting to menu and quitting to desktop).
I haven't really tested the deaths as yet as I'm trying to get the joining and leaving working before I move on to other Info Updates.
As an example; I've been logging in and out of the server all day. It is now 18:38 and here's a screenshot I just made of the last time the files were touched on the server
As you can see the last time the user.txt file was touched (edited) was at 11:55 THIS MORNING!
This effectively makes thes log files unusuable for my needs.
Is there a way to FORCE the server to update it in real time?
