[14:29:25] <xbs> i'm not sure we can fix stderr/stdout bug in modern windows without recompiling sdl to change the location these files are written to http://sdl.beuc.net/sdl.wiki/FAQ_Windows_Where_stdout___stderr
[14:59:05] <wjp> not all of SDL, but just SDLmain, if that page is right
[15:00:09] <wjp> or you can tell it to disable output redirection entirely already, I think
[15:00:22] <wjp> (but I don't know the context here)
[15:05:47] <xbs> hi wjp, yeah that page is pretty old i was looking at other ones too
[15:06:02] <xbs> but it seems to be correct. i am for disabling output redirection if we have some logging mechanism in place
[15:06:04] <xbs> but i dont think we do
[15:06:38] <xbs> dosbox shows the same bug on my system: stdout/stderr dont get created because it cant write to program files
[15:07:13] <xbs> unless it's installed to a user writable folder
[15:09:02] <xbs> failing a complete logging mechanism we can just open the files ourselves at program launch, making sure it goes to appdata
[15:10:02] <xbs> OR maybe use freopen() without recompiling SDLmain (http://sdl.beuc.net/sdl.wiki/FAQ_Console)
[15:10:40] <xbs> s/CON/newstdout.txt/
[15:15:10] <wjp> It should be fairly easy to disable SDLmain's own redirecting and do the freopen calls manually, yes

[15:24:32] <sbx> i'll try that soon
