Overview

The Chat Logger tool is, as its name implies, a way to log messages in your chat window. The logs are driven by a set of user-defined rules that match the message type and a regular expression pattern that matches the text of the message. By default, these messages will be logged to the Chat Log tab in UB, but can also be saved to disk in settings. The logs will be saved at Documents\Decal Plugins\UtilityBelt\<Server>\<Character>\chat.txt.

Chat Log Rules

To add a new chat log rule: 1. Create a pattern for messages you’d like to match in the filter field 2. Select the message types you’d like the filter to apply to 3. Click the Add Rule button
