A way to download a log

Post by Halda » Tue Jun 12, 2012 5:55 pm

HI, i search but didn't found a way to do it, sorry if this is already doable (i'm not yet a master in World of Logs usage).
What i really want to do is ba able to download the original combat log (the original log who got parsed by WoL), for archival purpose (and toying a little with them:))

That's not possible because WoL doesn't store the raw combat log. You don't even upload the raw log, the client analyzes it and uploads a WoL specific log.

Well, there's a part of combat log shown, when you select Deaths for a certain player, and then press (more).

So, I suppose this is not an absolutely true answer. How much info does WoL really save?

As cremor says, we don't store the raw combat log. The WOL client compresses it into a custom file format before uploading. This file format contains most of the information present in the combat log file, but not everything. For example, it saves only a single name per NPC or player seen.

The information you see in the death details, log browser and expression editor is presented in a way that resembles the WoW in-game combat log. However, it is not present on our servers like that. It requires a lot of steps to reproduce this: the packed combat log is read and processed by the backend server, which sends the required data to the frontend server, which converts it into a browser-readable data format and passes it to your browser. The final step, which leads to the in-game combat log-like format, is actually performed by your browser itself using javascript. The text as you see it is merely a nicely formatted representation of the packed data stored on our servers.

In theory, we could write some code that would convert our packed data file format back into a WoW textual combat log. This doesn't exist as of yet and is not a planned feature, however. We'd rather spend the time we have available to us on other parts of the site.
