Stencyl, like any program, generates logs. Posting these logs to the forums will help us diagnose and resolve your problem.

To generate logs, go to the following menu item.

Debug > Logs > Generate Logs

Then, attach the resulting ZIP file to your forum post.

I was told that these logs only help if the game fails to compile due to errors is that right?

Sometimes it can give information if the application fails to launch, as well, but that depends on what is causing the problem. Some problems will not show (e.g. problems outside of Java/SW).

See someone who asks a question that clearly needs the logs? Use this code to display an image that links back to this topic.

(Click 'Select' and then copy it to your clipboard)

It will display exactly like this.

How can I turn off the LOG? I know how to get a report should I need it however when you test a game in 3.0 now it generated a window with log info I dont need. I cant find a way to turn it off

Please be patient. The nightly builds already do have a toggle-button for the log-viewer / output  in the toolbar. At the moment you have to close the window manually or move it in the corner.
Sure, my games won't get better with all the new features of Stencyl.
But I do have more fun creating bad ones.

You can also press Esc to close it using the keyboard.

How about a post about understanding error messages? So we fix anything we can by ourselves individually.  My errors don't bring any relevant behaviours.
