 +====== doomsday.out log file ======
 +
 +//​doomsday.out//​ is a log of what Doomsday is doing at runtime. In it will be logged errors, warnings and other pertinent information such as the command line options used at startup.
 +
 +When reporting bugs and/or problems of a technical nature, [[https://​talk.dengine.net/​discussion/​2757/​how-to-report-bugs-technical-issues#​latest|you are expected to supply this file]].
 +
 +If a fatal error occurs Doomsday will attempt to show you the contents of the log automatically. However, if a real crash occurs (e.g., the Windows debug report dialog appears) you will have to look for it in your [[runtime folder]] (you will not be shown the log).
 +
