Captains!

 

A Replay was unlocked in the game some time ago. Before enabling it, read, please, the following disclaimer.

 

DISCLAIMER: DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK. BACKUP INVOLVED FILE!

 

So...

We have a Replay function in the game, already active. However we do not have necessary interface for it yet - it is still being developed. However since this can help in reporting bugs, we will now share the "how to".

 

To turn the replays ON, you have to:

 

1. Close the game client.

2. BACKUP preferences.xml file found in the game folder.

3.a Download and copy the preferences.xml file attached to this post (will reset your other preferences)

3.b Open the original preferences.xml for editing

4. Scroll it till the last lines:

Block Quote

           </scriptsPreferences>
</root>

or

Block Quote

    </scriptsPreferences>
    <consoleHistory />
</root>

 5. Paste these lines before </scriptsPreferences>

Block Quote

​         <isReplayEnabled> true </isReplayEnabled>
        <ReplayCameraUpdate> 30 </ReplayCameraUpdate>

 6. This is how the result should look like:

Block Quote

         <isReplayEnabled> true </isReplayEnabled>
        <ReplayCameraUpdate> 30 </ReplayCameraUpdate>
    </scriptsPreferences>
</root>

 or 

Block Quote

         <isReplayEnabled> true </isReplayEnabled>
        <ReplayCameraUpdate> 30 </ReplayCameraUpdate>
    </scriptsPreferences>
    <consoleHistory />
</root>

 7. Save the game file and launch the client

8. Enjoy the game!

 

To run the replay:

1. Find replay in the \replays folder inside the game folder

2. Close the game client

3. After closing the game, drag and drop *.wowreplay file on the icon of WorldOfWarships.exe

Note: You have to be using the same version of the game. Replays will not work with different version of game than weas used to record them!

4. Replay controls:

PageUp & PageDown for playing speed control
Home for normal speed
End for pause (which is actually x100 slower speed)
LMB for toggling camera direction between free & recorded
> & < for fast-forward & rewind (can be used together with Ctrl)

Ctrl+G to hide the user interface

 

 

That is all - good luck and have fun!

Could you create a blog entry so more people become aware of this?

 

This way, if a bug happens, we can post a replay of it so it becomes even better to reproduce and, in the end, solve it.


How to actually hit stuff:

No, realy, watch this, then everything else in this playlist ... and then watch it again!

I tried it but when I  ran the preference file seems to have reset. Wordpad complained about text vs other types of files... 

 

Oh... I  used 3b method.

why dont we have version compatibility ....cmon would it be that hard to do

 

“here it was in black and white from the First Lord of the Admiralty... again! King George V had already asked his Private Secretary to write to Winston Churchill and make it abundantly clear, when the Iron Duke Class was being built, that under no circumstances would a battleship be christened His Majesty’s Ship Oliver Cromwell."

I guess because that would mean they need to keep the meshes/textures from each patch on update or you would get graphical issues like we see now with hitboxes of islands not being in the correct position, parts of ships clipping through other parts and the likes?

"First they nerfed the carriers and I didn't speak out because I didn't play carriers.                                    Then they nerfed the torpedoes and I didn't speak out because I didn't play IJN DDs.

Then they nerfed cruiser HE and I didn't speak out because I didn't spam HE.                                             Then they nerved concealment on every class except BB's, and I didn't speak out because I didn't have common sense

Then the BBabies came for me, and there was no one left to speak out for me."

It's got to be a pain. Look at WOT, one replay that's your favourite is totally useless on the next patch unless you keep every version of the old patches!! I did this for a while but gave up!!! 

THANKS Tuccy for the info. Have tried this and it works fine....................

Although I empathise with the frustration I always record a good replay with Fraps knowing that a new patch will render old replays useless. What would be good though is some sort of universal replay executable which would be backwardly compatible with previous executable versions enabling all replays to be enjoyed by the end user.

The replay file is just a record of entity locations and object properties, it does not contain the meshes and textures. The executable file itself is not the main problem, with patches there are changes to terrain / ships both in mesh and textures. If the client would not back up every mesh/texture from every patch, you would never reach backwards compatibility ( without more or less severe graphical abnormalities ). I would not want the client to do this, it would increase the space the game occupies to much ( I got precious space on my ssd ). 

 

The meshes are small files, the texture's make up the most space. A possible workaround would be to add an option to keep meshes from previous patch and allow storing of selected textures ( which are either all low quality ~ which is smaller, or highly compressed one's which due to compression would look lower quality ).

 

Or maybe I am wrong?
