It keeps up to 50 lines, and after that the first line written gets deleted and the new one you wrote inserted at the front. It's only purged on game exit. You want it to save the console history to a file?

I like having it on hand to copy and paste commands or see data I entered awhile ago, which always ends up getting purged. It would be nice if the less important stuff like who killed who, timeouts, etc got deleted rather than "load blahblahblah" and "give weapon balbhalbh"... but really I'd like just having the entire history going on the console, saving to a log and purging maybe every 200 lines or something.

I think this should be unlimited or at least extended - when in a server with 32 people your limit is reached very soon and you lose what you needed to see in the console. I think this should be addressed, looking at the plans for 128 players

Uhm, are you talking about the arrow up/down history or the console text history?

I'm talking about the text that fills the F8 or ~ Console. I'm not sure what you mean by up/down history... you can scroll the chatbox?!

yeah what is up/down history?

i was refering to what fills in the console too, if you have lots of players 50 lines just isnt enough

We could log it all to a file. The limit stays.

Please, change the target version to 1.1.1/1.1.2, it's crap copy a message while in a server with one hundred players (imagine with two hundred and thirty players as CIT), you don't have time to select the whole message and it gets deleted really fast.

a new log file will be created daily and will take the input and output of the console

It's bugged, most of time it doesn't create a file with the console content
