Diagnostic Files

Depending on what kind of issue you’re having, we might want to request various files from you to help diagnose the problem. These are:

  • Save Files

  • Game Output Logs

  • System Information / DxDiag Reports

  • Crash Reports

Save Files

Save files depend on which platform you’re running on, be that Discord, Steam, GOG, etc. and are covered in a separate article - How To Find Game & Save Files

Game Output Logs

Windows

On Windows, game output is located in the AppData folder, which you can get to by

  1. Press the Windows Key and type %appdata% and hit enter

  2. From this location, navigate to

    • …\AppData\LocalLow\Plausible Concept\Bad North

  3. The file output_log.txt is the output log

Note that these logs are reset with each play session - be sure to grab the log immediately after seeing the problem.

Mac OSX

On OSX, the game output is located in the Library.

  1. Open Launcher -> Console

  2. Navigate to /Users/<user_name>/Library/Logs/Unity/Player.log

Note that these logs are shared with all other Unity Games and will be reset with each play session - be sure to grab the log immediately after seeing the problem.

If you have purchased the game via the Mac App Store, or Kartridge, the logs are likely to end up in:

~Library/Containers/com.PlausibleConcept.BadNorthOSX/data/Library/Logs/Unity/Player.log
