1204 and 1205 write deadlock graphs and associated info into the SQL error log. If you aren't having deadlocks, you won't see anything written. I wouldn't usually suggest using both. 1204 is usually good enough for identifying deadlocks. 1205 can get very, very verbose.
What were you expecting them to be writing into the error log?
