Logcat does not show details of the NullPointerException

When comparing the logcat console output and comparing it with Ben's, I've noticed it is actually a bit different. It leaves out important information. All I'm getting is the following:

Is there something that I may have misconfigured, or just a change in the versions of Android Studio since production?

What is the filter view in logcat set to? Can you change it to debug?

I had it set to Verbose. So, I would think it would show the error message.

Try changing it? Or maybe there is no NPE in your code?
