Step by step instructions:
- Download the Android Windows Platform Tools: https://dl.google.com/android/repository/platform-tools-latest-windows.zip

- Download the script file getlog.bat https://drive.google.com/file/d/1GYrOUNLfeDkZ4ZIAUdQQyvXbN3LSC8p4/view?usp=sharing and copy the script file into the extracted folder /platform-tools_r30.0.5-windows/platform-tools. It is important to have the script file in the extracted folder for it to work.
- Enable the developer options on your phone
- You can follow this guide for Samsung phones - the process is very similar for all Android phones: https://www.samsung.com/uk/support/mobile-devices/how-do-i-turn-on-the-developer-options-menu-on-my-samsung-galaxy-device/
- After you enable the developer options, enter the Developer options menu and enable USB debugging
- Connect your phone to your PC via USB cable
- When the phone is connected to your PC, select the File transfer option from the phone’s menu
- Your phone will ask you if you authorize USB debugging from the connected PC - approve this request
- With the phone connected to the PC, run the getlog.bat script. A new file will be created in the folder /platform-tools_r30.0.5-windows/platform-tools called log.txt
- Start the game and try to induce the crash.
- All done! You can now disconnect your phone from the PC and disable developer options on your phone. Share the log.txt file with us - please, use the form at http://madfingergames.com/help. Describe the circumstances of the crash and don’t forget to attach the log file you created.
