Ahoy, Captains! With the NDA on World of Warships lifted, you may want to capture some of the awesome moments you've been having during the World of Warships Closed Beta Test and share them with your friends and fellow community members! Replays are also very helpful for illustrating feedback, or for including in your bug reports

 

There is no in-game UI function for this feature right now, so players will need to enable it manually through the following steps:

 

1. Close the game client.

2. Backup the "preferences.xml" file located in the game folder. You may wish to save this backup copy in a separate folder.

3. Open the original (not backup) "preferences.xml" file using a text editor like Notepad. 

4. Scroll to the bottom until you see the following lines:

Block Quote

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

 

5. Paste two new lines before the </scriptsPreferences> line:

Block Quote

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

 

6. It should now look like this:

Block Quote

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

 

7. Save the file and launch the game client.

8. Enjoy the game!

9. All of the replays will be stored at the "..\replays" folder, which will be automatically created inside the game folder.

10. To launch a replay, close the game client first.

11. After closing the game, drag and drop the "*.wowsreplay" file to WorldOfWarships.exe, or associate the .wowsreplay file extention with the game executable.

12. Every battle generates a separate replay file. Port cannot be recorded.

13. *.wowsreplay files can only be played with the same client version. Replays may not work properly with newer version of the game client.

 

Replay controls:

Block Quote

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

 

You should be able to directly attach *.wowsreplay files to your forum posts through the "Attach Files" function, otherwise you can place the file in a *.zip. Looking forward to seeing your replays, Captains!

I believe playback is disabled for the current patch though, so be careful.

Wonderful! I'll do this now just so I can come back in a few years and laugh at how bad I was (except I'll still be bad, just older X_x)

Better wish me luck! You'll need it...

I use a rather...free recording device. Razer Cortex. And it works like a charm.

 

Thanks by the way Gunlion for posting this, but I'm sure there will be a replay function added later on.

Yea playback is not working, I enabled my replays in this patch but when launching the replay it just opens the wows application and goes to log in screen.

Nope just opens the application and goes right to the log in screen.    Logging in just takes you to port.     So there is something not working here.

thanks for checking, at work and cannot check myself. :great:

 

I think we need to get patch notes published, since I recall seeing these and this in particular before in the section we cannot talk about :hiding:

Tedster and Dawson are correct. I'll look into when we're going to get that feature turned back on. In the meantime, might be good to preserve some replays for the future, and you should still be able to attach them for bug reports. :)

Total bummer to lol I enabled the replay folder the day cbt started then had some really good matches I wanted to create a video with and then when I went to launch it I was surprised to find they wouldn't play back.      :(

I feel like a real nooblet and didn't even know wargaming had a replay function in their games.  I could or rather they could probably alert gamereplays.org about this and have them help host replays for the game to be reviewed.  I used to be a replay reviewer there myself, though I am completely new at naval games so it may be a long time before I hit that level of skill to review once more.

the replays need to record the chat as well

 

so we can send the replay to support for WoT/4chan chatting

 

tested - chat is not included -- because the test string typed into chat did not appear in the replay file

If you're just doing a "find" in a text editor the message won't show up provided WoWS's replays use the same approach as the WoT's replays. If this is the case, there's really no easy way to check.
