LiveReplay server and replays
- 1 Live Replay
- 2 Replays
All your games are sent to a liveReplay server, so other people can observe without taking your bandwidth.
How can I watch a live replay ?
When a game starts, a link is given by the host of the game in the main chat. All you have to do is click on it to launch the liveReplay.
The liveReplay of a game will be up as long as someone is watching it : Even after a game is done, there is still a chance that you can watch it !
You don't have the map. So you can't view the game. Download the map (the name is given before the link) from the vault, and click the liveReplay link again.
Is it easy to cheat with that !
Yes and no : There is a 60 seconds delay between the real game and the game you are watching.
Only the host is sending the link, but everybody in the game is sending the replay to the livereplay server.
Just double click in any Sword icon of any player still in game.
The (live)replay is desync !
That doesn't mean that the game is.
It is a bug with FA : when someone leaves the game, it often desync the replay.
That bug will always be here, Nothing can be done about that.
LastGame doesn't work ! I can't save my replay ! WHERE ARE THEY !?
They are saved in your documents and settings\My Games\Gas Powered Games\Supreme Commander Forged Alliance\replays\your login name.
They usually were saved in a "My Games" folder depending of your FA language. It's in my Games for all versions now (with the maps and mods)
I can't open my replay !
Two reasons :
- You need binFAF executable. It's in COMMON_APP/FAForever/bin (COMMON_APP is c:\ProgramData\ on seven). Double clicking a replay, unless you change the association, will open with standard FA (3599).
- The name of the replay is too long for FA. Try to shorten it.
