POM Play on Mac makes huge log files in the root directory of specifically STO / star trek online, if run for a few hrs it gets up to a few GB and after a few days takes like 20-30 gb and so on, actually filled up my HD

the file i am refering to is >> "playonlinux.log" somebody help and tell me how to stop POM from logging. its really annoying since it also drags down performace

If this file contains a lot of wine fixme, you should add "-all"  in the debug flags of the virtual drive ->http://forums.pixeltailgames.com/uploads/default/original/2X/b/bc65c9e45dd085a6b68d6a1cd496ae50529ac345.png

(location of the debug flags)

about 5 hrs later the file is now 2.27GB big, it is still the same, running the game a few days, fills up the HD, is there some other way to disable logging?

Up, same question...    I wonder how to automatically prefill the POL/POM's box "Setup"  -> "Debug Flags", when writing a POL/POM script.

 

The human way (after the script installation) is to type inside: -all,fixme-all
