I noticed a lot of people seem confused about how to find the folders with their screenshots and logs for use in things like tickets at Support. This is a guide for Windows OS users. For Mac or Linux OS, if someone else could add to this thread, it would be greatly appreciated~.

WINDOWS OS

01.
Press WINDOWS key and R key at the same time. This should bring up a box labeled Run. Type %appdata% in Open box.

02. This opens your Roaming folder. Look for .minecraft if you use a .jar file with Minecraft launcher. Look for .technic if you use the Technic Launcher. Click the folder for the launcher you were using at the time of the chat/screenshot that you need to find.

03. (a) For .minecraft, go straight into the logs folder.

For .technic, you must look for the modpacks folder first. Open it to look for the Pixelmon mod folder and open it. You will then see a logs folder that is specific to the Pixelmon mod.

03. (b) For screenshots, simply look for screenshots instead of logs in these folders.

.technic

04. You have located the logs folder for your appropriate launcher! Now please scroll to the very bottom to look for a file called Latest. This is the chat log for your current session. Previous sessions will be before it and are time stamped. Now, just open the file you need to look for the info you require.

.technic

05. Once you have the file open, the task is the same regardless of launcher you used. You can scroll through slowly or use the Find tool to quickly locate specific words or letters to save time.

Use up/down options to find the next use of that word or letters from your starting point.

06. Once you have found the text needed, you can either screenshot it or select a portion to copy and paste into a ticket at our Support page. For screenshots, simply upload them as a file for your ticket. Please make sure you include the time stamped information before the text entries to provide adequate info for our staff.

I hope this is an easy to follow guide on how to locate your chat logs and screenshots for use in whatever you may need. If you have any questions please feel free to ask~. And as I said, if someone would like to contribute for Mac or Linux OS guides, that would be greatly appreciate.

Hello all!
This is the linux version of how to find logs and screenshots. Mind that I am using Ubuntu 16.04. Also on different Linux versions this may very, but I am sure the general idea is the same. Here is how:

1) Enter the file browser of your computer:

2) Then, click Ctrl + H to show hidden files:

3) From here this, these steps are for MC launcher. Skip to step 9 for technic:

4) Click on the file that says .minecraft:

5) Locate the folder that says screenshots:

6) Bam you found the screenshots. Next up let's find logs. Go back to your .minecraft folder and find the folder that says logs:

7) Scroll down all the way or use the arrow keys to navigate to the very bottom. At the very bottom, you will find the latest log that is saved from your last log in. Mind that if you are logged in while doing this, it will prompt you with a message if to ignore any changes to the file. Choose yes or no depending on what you need:

8) Bam you found the logs! Let's move on to technic launcher.



9) First, you must go back to your file browser, where you previously found .minecraft and .technic for .technic, find the .technic folder:



10) From here on, click .technic.

11) Go to modpacks:

13) From there, go to screenshots to find your screenshots.

14) Go to logs, if you that is what you need, and navigate to the bottom. There select the bottom file for the most recent logs.

I would like to recommend for those using Windows 10 OS to quick pin your roaming folder, so that way you don't have to continually repeat the process. But I can really only recommend this for users who go into their .technic or .minecraft folders often like I do. Even then, it doesn't hurt :)

Hey there! This is the guide on how to find screenshots and chat logs on a Mac using technic. Yes, surprisingly there are Mac users and hopefully you find this helpful. I'm sure there are many other ways to access the screenshots and logs, but this is a simple way that is known to me.

1.) First, you're going to want to go to your desktop. In the top left, you want to click on the help button.
https://i.gyazo.com/cedb22db3703bf88164fbd7f352845c1.jpg

2.) From there, you search "Library" and it should hopefully show this.
https://i.gyazo.com/f1e7a41ba80dc40f834dca2d5db93cf4.png

3.) Once you click it, many other folders within the "Library" folder should appear, including "Application Support." Click that folder.
https://i.gyazo.com/4695ca78d4674d97811ab3e853115772.png

4.) Upon opening it, there will be many application folders within it, but scroll up or down to try and find the folder that says "technic." Once you do happen to find it, open it.
https://i.gyazo.com/400a2fd5e6fbb6ae95baa6044c028bb3.png

5.) When you're there, you should see a folder that says "logs." You can click to open it and find the most recent chat logs. If the logs aren't from the date you were searching for, continue by clicking the back arrow in the top left to go back and click the "modpacks" folder.

6.) Continue to click the "pixelmon-513-pro" folder.

7.) Scroll up or down until you find the folder "logs" or "screenshots." Click either and all your screenshots you've taken or chat logs you may have should be there.

Thanks for your time and hopefully you found this useful!
I do apologize for only using Gyazo, I have no other way to screenshot things. :d
