Sometimes when there is an issue with the client or a specific script, you may be asked to provide a "logcat". This refers to a system command that can be used to obtain log files (a record of what the bot was doing) that can be used by client developers and script writers in troubleshooting. This guide will walk you through how to capture a logcat file, that you can then send to a developer if they ask for it.
