Unity 3D: Debugging with the Unity logfile when testing an APK file on an actual device

Normally, if you test your Unity game on your Android phone you are able to see the Unity debug logfile in the Android logcat with Eclipse.

<br />
Debug.Log("info");<br />
Debug.LogWarning("warning");<br />
Debug.LogError("error");

However, in case this is not working you can output the game’s logfile to a flat file. Do as follows:

  • Connect to the device using ADB.
  • Use the logcat command:
    adb logcat -d > mylogfile.txt

That will create a text file (mylogfile.txt) which should include any statements you logged (like „information“ from Debug.Log).
