Is there a way to redirect Foobar2000 error messages to a file?

Hi,

When you open a corrupted MIDI file in Foobar2000, the program displays a playback error message that you can see in a dialog box. Is there a way to redirect that error message with the name of the corrupted file to a text file instead of the dialog box?

@Fabcore I can't find the save to text option in Advanced/Playback. Sorry, I'm blind and can't see any screenshots. Could you write down the exact path? Unless it's the setting ...

Thanks in advance :)

That part is not in Preferences, but select View -> Console (tap Alt and then hit v and c!)

The "Show error message popups" is under Preferences -> Advanced. You can write "popup" into the search field at the top and you will find it.
