Logging all chat to the database

4 posts in this topic

Hi there,

 

I was wondering if there was a way to log all the chat(direct,side,group, etc) to the database?

Right now its logging it into the serverconsole, but making MYSQL to read trough 120k lines for each restart will stress it too much.


Thanks! :)

I am also looking for this functionality. Does anyone have a functional method of doing this?

 

Note: I am more specifically interested in side chat logging.

@ILLUXNNN After doing a lot of research, we couldn't find a way to send chat data from Exile (or Arma) directly to MySQL in game. We ended up using BEC and parsing the log files. Iterate each line, insert into the database and then remove the line.

This is possible, but you would need to write it yourself with Visual Studio .NET.  You could use the BattleNet C# library to write an app to monitor the RCON console for chat, parse it and then write it to a Mysql database.  @maca134 used this libaray to create MBRcon as a nice replacement for BEC.
