I've tried playing some replay files today from games played last night, and when the replay files launch WoWS, it gets stuck on the loading screen.   I've tried disabling all mods and restarting the computer, neither worked.   If I just try playing the game I can play the game, but I can't get past the load screen for replays.  

 

Have any of you tried to play a replay file lately?   Is there any other way to play these files?

 

Thanks!

maybe you have to 'bind' the replay file type to the new exe file (64 or 32 bit, whatever your system uses)

Thanks for the help, I tried right clicking and changing the "open with" file to the following:

But that still gives me the same problem (stuck on the loading screen).   

 

In order to verify if the problem is on my end or on WG's end, is anyone else able to verify that replays still work?

 

I assume there is no other way to "open" these files?

try to select the exe in the bin32 or bin64 (whatever is the correct for you)

Also, I tried opening with the file in the bin64 folder:

But that gave me this error:

Also tried the bin32 file and got a similar error (I am running Windows 10):

@Hawg Make sure your wowsreplay files are set to be opened by the WorldofWarships.exe file in the World_of_Warships_Eu folder.

 

I've just tried to open 8.3 replays from yesterday found in the bin64/replay folder. They opened fine. Was also able to open replays in the various previous version folders found in the /replay folder. The only replays I couldn't open, and which gave me exactly the problem you are reporting were those sitting in the /replay folder itself.

 

Hope this helps, but I'm sure we can work it out :-)

I've just managed to replay my last battle from 'Games>World_of_Warships>Replays' folder this morning, no probs there other than my team lost!!, however, can't seem to find any replay dated prior to the latest patch (not that they would run anyway). I've got nothing resembling replays in the bin64 folder. Hmmm...

@Fat_Maniac -  Thank you, I've moved the replays to a new folder and now they launch just fine.   Not sure why they don't like being launched when they are in the default replays folder, but now the problem is solved :)

I was suffering from the same problem. Thanks for the info. Now my problem is solved as well.

 

Just to add a precision: it still didn't work when I moved the replays to another folder I created in the WoWs root folder. But when I moved them to a folder elsewhere in the C Drive, it worked like a charm!

 

Thanks again and happy hunting.

 

Sal

 

P.S. : Now I tried again, after putting the replay files back in the original Replays folder. Still works…..hmmmm….lol.

I realize this may be a bit old, however if you are looking for closure, the error is produced because the application is looking for a file called Python.log that file exists in "the game folder" and then a subfolder called "profile". However, the application from your screenshot is looking is C:\Windows\System32\ instead of "the game folder". You probably tried to run a replay by right-clicking it and selecting the game for it to open. As the replay probably was in the wrong location (i.e. not the game folder), the game defaulted to look in the system directory, where it could not find the file in which to write. I am happy you found the solution, however. Now you know why it worked.

I just wanted to let you know, that studying your error, in turn, fixed my own. So thank you very much :)
