Combat Log Round-Up & Instructions

Hey everyone, it's Zoopercat from Ask Mr. Robot. I wanted to share a round-up of all of the combat log parsers, since so many people worked so hard on making tools for the rest of the community to use. I also figure this thread would be a nice way to ask questions and request features, that way, all of the combat log authors can see what users want, and everyone can make better tools with the same feedback.

Keep in mind, these parsers have had limited testing, so if you find a bug, feel free to report it. It’s helpful if you can provide a link to your log as well.

How to use combat logging:
  1. Open "Preferences" in your game (screenshot)
  2. Go to the "Combat Logging" tab (screenshot)
  3. Check the box that says "Enable Combat Logging," then click the "Apply" button
  4. Pro Tip: You can uncheck & recheck that box right before an operation (or flashpoint) to start a fresh log file
  5. To find your combat log, go to the "My Documents" folder on your desktop, open the "Star Wars - The Old Republic" folder. Then open the folder titled, "Combat Logs." Pro tip: sort by date, and grab the most recent one.

View the Feature Chart here, which takes the info from this thread and lists it in a feature comparison chart. I was looking for several features as a user, and checked up on all of the parsers yesterday to get the latest features and screenshots.
  • Accurate: I tested the log with a Black Talon run, and a log from Zorn and Toth. I compared results and gave an accurate rating if the log was within 1% of the actual DPS (total damage / length of fight). If you need a sample log, you can use my Black Talon run at level 16.

  • Share Log: can I get a permalink to share the report results with a friend or guild mate?
  • Merge Logs: can logs from various group members be uploaded and merged together to show overall boss fight numbers?

Would love to get mine in here

http://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?t=399162

It's a simple .exe parser to analyze your own logs. Simple GUI and simple options.

So, you are the author of TorMeter? I can hit up Zoop and have her add the information to the original post.

Well, I suspect someone else might have developed something with the same name as I, but yes; I've coded the one I linked.

Would love to get it on the list. It's a nice thing to have if you just want a quick analysis of your own performance.

I'll add this to the list in a minute here. I'll note that it's a different tool as well.

Thanks for doing this, Zoopercat! It's nice to have a single place to discuss features for all of the parsers.

However, there may be some value in noting the latest threads for each parser so that people can file bug reports against specific parsers, and so developers don't have to comb through this entire thread looking for bugs specifically meant for them. I'm not talking about the old threads on the PTS forum, as the forum is closed now. What I mean is the new threads started by the authors themselves since Patch 1.2.

There's only a few so far, but I expect more parser authors will create threads in the next day or so. If those links don't find their way here, I'll post updates.

JonathanDark, good idea! I updated the OP and will keep an eye out for more threads.

Hunkberget, I have your tool added as 'the other TORmeter' - if you want a different title let me know Also, I haven't had a chance to check out your tool, so if you can tell me if you have the following features, I'll fill it in: merge logs, share logs, anything else of note?

The original posted TorMeter is actually mine as well, so you can just remove it. The link was dead, so didn't notice it linked to mmonorge.no, a community where I posted an early version.

The reason I didn't think it was mine was that I intentionally kept it away from the swtor.com forums until now.

So pretty please just clean up my mess! ^^

Thanks alot for doing the compilation dude, awezome job!
