In the 0.9.6 Update we've fixed an error, which prevented playing the replay backwards. This allowed us to add snapshots - timestamps which may be returned to from any place in the replay. More details below.

General
Hide/show interface Ctrl + J
Playback
Pause/Resume

End

Play at x1 speed (Does not automatically resume when paused) Home
Increase playback speed Insert
Decrease playback speed Delete
Fast forward >
Fast backward <
Fast forward х2 Ctrl + >
Fast backward х2 Ctrl + <
Camera control
Link/Unlink camera  C

Free camera mode (it may still be needed to unlink camera by pressing LMB)

Ctrl + Shift + Backspace
Move camera in parallel to water ←, →, ↑, ↓
Move camera up

Num9

Move camera down Num7
Zoom in/Zoom out Mouse wheel

Link to the ship in front of camera in free camera mode (hard link, includes rotating with the ship)

B

Link to the position of the ship in front of the camera

Ctrl + B
Switching different free camera modes 1-9
Switching additional free camera modes Shift + 1-9
Rotating camera Num4, Num6
Camera angling Num2, Num8
Move camera to the point of interest Num1
Move camera away from the point of interest Num3
Increase/decrease camera movement speed Num+ / Num-
Increase/decrease camera movement acceleration/deceleartion Shift + (Num+/ Num-)

Increase/decrease the radius of the free camera sphere (the sphere aroun the real camera position. The real position becomes a point of interest)

Shift + Mouse wheel
Snapshots control
Save a snapshot F5
Load the closest snapshot before the current moment F6
Load the closest snapshot after the current moment F7
Load the latest saved snapshot F8
Snapshots

This function allows to save a timestamp and camera position and restore them at will.
All snapshots data is stored in XML file, which is created in the same folder as a replay and has suffix _params in the <snapshots> block.
XML file will appear only if there is any data it should store. In case with snapshots it will appear after the first snapshot is created. 
XML file is tied to the replay and may be freely transfered with the replay file to other people, who then can use snapshots.

Creating and loading

Snapshot is created by pressing F5. This saves the timestamp of the replay, camera position and other parameters and creates a record in file in the snapshots section. 
Switching between snapshots happens in the following way:

  • F6: try to switch to the snapshot closest from the left on the time scale (earlier than now), if such snapshot exists.
  • F6: try to switch to the snapshot closest from the right on the time scale (later than now), if such snapshot exists.
  • F8: try to switch to the most recently created snapshot

To delete snapshots you have to edit XML file and delete the snapshot records.
Snapshots are existing and loaded on the replay-by-replay basis. So, the controls switch to the snapshots of the exact replay. 

Loaded parameters

When snapshots are used, the following parameters are restored: 

  • Camera position
  • Camera FOV (or camera zoom)
  • Replay time

 

Also the replay is paused after loading the snapshot.

Same here, sometimes replay controls work, sometimes they don't. Any knowledge or fix for this?

Replay controls don't work at all, the replay launches, but none of the keys nor mouse work. For whatever reason the cursor appears and you can move it around, but clicking does nothing.

This is widespread - you can check my thread in General Forum:

Updated the post:

  • End now serves as toggle between “pause” and “resume playback”
  • Home now does not resume playback, but just sets the current playback speed to x1
  • C is now used to link/unlink the camera instead of the left mouse button.

Funny how this post appears, when I already complained heavy in discord about that. GG Sehales GG.

Thanks for info! :Smile_honoring:

 

BTW, is there any, hopefully, timetable for "fully official" Replay file playback in WoWs (IIRC this was mentioned few months ago in one of the DevBlogs)?

 

Fingers crossed!

We are working on several improvements, but there is no ETA I can share. Or what exactly do you mean?

RGR - thanks for info!

 

I was thinking along the line of the full functionality for the Replay module (with on screen "VCR Like" commands when needed etc.)!

 

BTW, with few recent patches, many players reported in several threads inability to play replay files at all (or they played one day and didn't the next day)...
