I dont know if this has been covered(alot of pages or responses), but I am trying to setup the log file to input date and time on the naming of the file so it saves a new one each time without overwriting the old one. Doesn't have to be date and time, but something that creates a new name each time it saves.
Things that annoy me about Minecraft Client Console:
1) Right click to "Edit > Select All" then "Edit > Copy". Instead, I accidentally click "Close" and permanently lose the entire history since there's no prompt. This could be solved by adding a prompt, or an easy way to automatically log the contents to a text file so I have a record of the chat.
2) There is an "Invalid Server Response" error. When this happens, it doesn't retry. Instead, it just sits there and I have to make a copy of the log first, then restart, then edit my script to the point at which it failed, then restart the script. Having it retry up to 3 times would mean I wouldn't have to do anything in this case.
