Problem with Log Folders

    So I was rearranging my save log folders.

    I reset the destination folders PO draws from when it saves battle logs/replays and battle music. The battle music is just fine. Whenever it saves logs and replays, I found it MUST save into a folder named "Battle LogsBattle Logs" and "Battle LogsBattleReplays" respectively. If there isn't a folder with that name, it will make it on its own. I'd rather just rename the folders to simply "Battle Logs" and "Battle Replays" and have them save into those. But alas, it won't. It will just create folders with those names.

    On a related note, my PMs aren't saving properly. After I rearranged my folders, it stopped saving my PMs in the designated PM folder and just created a new folder called "Battle LogsPrivate Messages." I switched the option off and on again and now it won't save them at all. Or, at least, it's saving them in a folder than I cannot find anywhere. Also there is no option in the settings where I can control the PM log save location.

    How do I set things back to normal?

    You should be able to edit those through the settings plugin. Plugin Manager -> enable the Edit Settings plugin. If you don't mind sharing you could paste it here and I'll have a look.

    Enable the Edit Settings plugin and click "OK"

    then you will be able to access this

    If you don't mind sharing what's in your settings you could paste it here and I'll have a look. Otherwise you could play around with it yourself, but be careful.

    Under [General], editing "logs_directory" to your desired file path might fix the issue

    I can't find any of my PMs there.

    That's where my battle logs are saved, though.

    No, my battle logs and PMs are not being saved together in the same location (although I expect them to be, since they were before).

    So to clarify, your old PMs are currently with your battle logs and new PMs are nowhere to be found?

    That is correct.

    And battle logs must be saved in a folder called Battle LogsBattle Logs. If I rename the folder to anything else, a newly saved battle log will create a new folder named as such and place itself in it.

    well ok yeah try editing your logs_directory value and see if they show up again at the new file path

    i'm not sure what exactly you did that the folders started naming themselves "Battle LogsBattle Logs" etc, they should simply be "Battle Logs" and "Battle Replays" by default

    Does the log directory value affect the PM save location or the battle log save location because my primary concern is that of the former.

    Otherwise, the listed location IS where I want it to save already, but it's just not saving, so how would I edit it?

    It should actually affect both PM and battle logs if I'm not mistaken. What I'm suggesting is to temporarily change the file path to anywhere else, and see if your logs start appearing properly in the new location.
