System Logger found in QFG1VGA
« on: November 08, 2018, 08:49:56 PM »
Well, it turns out the original system logger is still intact in QFG1VGA. To access it, delete or rename 952.scr and 952.hep (these are dummy files meant to disable the logger). During gameplay, press Alt-N to bring up the logger.

It seems that this was supposed to be removed for shipping, but Sierra made a mistake and left the key combination in the Main script.

Code: [Select]
(KEY_ALT_n
((ScriptID 952) doit: @sysLogPath 0)
(return (pEvent claimed: 1))

Here is some output:

This is a tool that was used by Quality Assurance to generate bug reports within the game. It lists various details about the current game state, and lets you decide the severity of the bug you discovered, as well as which department you would think could fix it (programming, art, music, or design)

Seems nice and helpful. Moreso than say a polygon creator.
