    I recently configured my client to log my journal events but I have a question and hope there is an answer. Right now, all of my character's journals are being logged to their own directory via an appeneded line in each character's uo.cfg file

    C:\Users\[computer_user]\Documents\EA Games\Ultima Online Legacy\User Data\[account_name]\[shard]\[character_name]\logfile.log

    Is there any way to have the log rotate so it does not become one big huge file? I would love a way to maybe time stamp each log file with say the time you logged in and the date so there would be individual smaller log files...

    Ideas?

    You can create a scrip that will automatically rename the log after you log off for the day. Then since all log files are created automatically, the next time that you log into the game, a new log file should be created. However, you might have to re-append the line so that your character's log get created as you mention on your post. Hope this helps.
