To enable the Debug and Logging you need to edit your Registry, if you are not comfortable doing this do not proceed.

The steps to do so are as follows:

  • Either create a reg file with the following:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Harebrained Schemes\BATTLETECH] 
"last_debug_state_h176629417"=dword:00000001

or use REGEDIT to make it.

You can then start a Skirmish Game and hit

LEFT CTRL + SHIFT + MINUS (-)

This should bring up the following Screen

Debug Console

Use the Pull Down menu as shown to select full details option once selected you can continue to play the game will automatically dump out the file at the end of session and store it in the following folder:

<PATH TO BATTLETECH>\BATTLETECH\DumpBox\<date>_<Time>

The log files are inside these folders in a format that is much easier to read.
