Log files are detailed recordings of what the game client is doing at any given point in time. We can use them to help determine what is causing your issue.
These files are extremely handy to have and can make solving even very complicated issues trivial.
If a support team member has asked you for these logs, here's how to get them:
Options button on the main menu, or press
release into the quick-search bar. This will take you to the current release stream your client is using.
Cutting Edge (Experimental).
Options menu again and click
Open osu! folder.
Logs directory in the window that opens.
Event Viewer is a built in component of Windows which can be used to find crash logs when osu! does not provide you with any. These crash logs can be used to help determine what is causing your issue.
When having problems with osu! crashing, if osu! doesn't give you a crash log the only place to find one is through Event Viewer.
If a support team member has asked you to find a crash log in Event Viewer, here's how to do it:
R to open the run box.
eventvwr and press
Enter. This will open the Event Viewer.
Windows Logs and then
Filter current log.
Error box checked and click
F and type osu! in the find box. It will find the first crash log from osu!.
Details tab, expand
Event Data by clicking on each of them.
The Frame Time Graph is a feature of osu! that can help us gather more useful information on performance issues you may be experiencing.
When faced with tricky performance issues in osu!, the Frame Time Graph is a good tool to help us diagnose the issue at hand, and help you find a solution to the issue.
If a support team member has asked you to take a video or screenshot with the Frame Time Graph open, here's how to do it:
F11 to open the Frame Time Graph.
F12. This will upload the screenshot to the osu! servers and will open the screenshot in a web browser tab.
