Please apply this guide to the version you are reporting


Navigate to C:\Users\yourname\Saved Games\DCS
OR C:\Users\yourname\Saved Games\DCS.Openbeta

08/12/2017 Note: Added procedure that collect's all necessary files to ZIP for diagnostic. After game crash, will be started procedure that automatically collects debugging information: crash report, crash dump, track, log. If the user agrees to provide information about the system, then msinfo.nfo and dxdiag.txt files are additionally attached.

The guide below is for the old procedure, DCS now creates a zip folder for you, please attach that to your bug reports.

right click on the logs folder and send to compressed folder

It will create a zipped folder called logs

now go to the forum and hit reply.

you will get the option to manage attachments, select the newly created zip folder and upload.

if you just want to attach the dcs.log change it to dcs.txt and it will attach to the forum
