I’ve had an issue for a few months where I’d try to log my M+ runs but the logs would be empty. This is despite being sure I turn on logging inside an instance. Sometimes I get a partial log, sometimes I don’t get anything. Because I sometimes got a partial log, I wondered if dying or wiping was turning the logs off. I started trying to track down what’s causing my issue this week.
The first thing I tried was disabling AMR and DBM for my run and I got a complete log. This was with too many wipes because we baddied it up. This was the first full dungeon log I’ve had in a long time.
My AMR setup is such that I have all raids toggled to on, and I toggled them off and on during this testing to ensure it was on for all supported auto-logged instances. (Sidenote: please default to automatically logging new raids! I missed logging our first run of CoS because I didn’t know to go turn it on.)
It seems that the AMR addon is interfering with my logging attempts, despite not having a setting or option for dungeons. At a minimum, when I enable logging before entering a dungeon, logging turns off entering a dungeon. However, none of my tests had the logging turn off during a run but I was solo in a mythic, dying on the first trash pack.
I tracked whether logging was on using a weak aura from wago.io.
Here are my tests.
Just WA: entering: still on. dying: still on. WA & AMR: entering: turned off. [turn logging on] dying: still on. WA & DBM: entering: still on. dying: still on. WA, AMR, DBM: What? I turn it on, get the message that it is being logged, but WA never says it is being logged. Do /combatlog log again, and it says it is being logged -- so it was off. Turning on logging isn't working at all. Walking into the instance turns it on though. Only DBM Core is loaded. Turn on DBM options GUI. WA, AMR, DBM: entering: turned off. [turn logging on] dying: still on. WA, DBM (& options): entering: still on. dying: still on. WA, AMR, DBM (& options): entering: turned off. [logging on] dying: still on. "DBM" now includes Core, Default Skin, Options GUI, Status Bar Timers, Azeroth (BFA), Battle of Dazar, Crucible of Storms, Party-BfA, Uldir, World Events. DBM > Options > General Options > Extra Features > Auto Logging Options > neither are checked on, they've been this way for all testing. WA, DBM: entering: still on. dying: still on. WA, DBM, AMR: First /combatlog outside instance did not turn loggin on, but second one did (verified 3 times). entering: turned off. [turn logging on, logging doesn't turn on. /combatlog again, and it turns on.] dying: still on. WA, AMR: entering: turned off. [turn logging on. It took two tries to turn on logging again.] dying: still on. WA: entering: still on. dying: still on. WA, DBM: entering: still on. dying: still on.
Things were getting weird towards the end. When logging was off, I had to issue the “/combatlog” command several times for the logging to actually start. I don’t know what to make of this. Any of this really! Halp?
