8. To launch the replay, close the game client first

9. After closing the game, use drag'n'drop *.wowreplay file to WorldOfWarships.exe or associate file extention with the game executable.

10. Every battle generates separate replay file. Port cannot be recorded.

11. You can play the *.wowsreplay file with the same client version only. Replays might not work properly with newer version of the game client.

12. Replay controls:

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

Easy to understand??

Do I overwrite the EXE file?  How do I get it started?  Seems we missed a few steps here.  1-7 are how to turn on recording.

You literally drag the icon for the replay and drop it on the icon for world of warships. The game will then launch and load you into battle.

Nothing gets overwritten.

You can also right click the replay and chose to open it with the application "world of warships"

In older operating systems, that would overwrite the file.  Was hesitant to do that.

Here is my update unless someone else is going to supercede mine:

 

REPLAY CONTROLS as of 2/25/2018 

Here are the controls for REPLAY as best as I know it. The ones on WOW are way outdated and some keys will crash
your system.
 

Anyways..the replay will play...keys to control replay are:

HOME - replay at normal speed
END - replay at the SLOWEST speed. You cannot pause..just go the slowest.
INSERT - Speesd up the replay
DELETE - slow down the replay

To detach your view from the fixed view - click in the center with left mouse button.
Hit together right CTRL and SHIFT on bottom lower right..while pressed down hit BACKSPACE
You are detached and now can roam while your in battle. Do this in normal speed as if its too slow you may not
see what you are doing.

Numeric keypad.
7 will make you elevate
9 will make you lower
4 will rotate left
6 will rotate right
5 tilt down
8 tilt up
pageup or number key 1=  zoom in
pagedn or number key 3 = zoom out
Arrow keys:
left - pan left
right - pan right
up - forward
down - reverse back

Notes:

< Claims it REWINDS - it does not work.
> Skips forward 10 sec

Your ship is the only one with no ICON info - just bare ship if still alive in Freecam mode
Lost your ship? Just press the ctrl-shift and back space to put you on the bridge again.

Ctrl-G = removes the GUI interface

Ok guys I have steam... I got to the part of recording the replays and see the files of the games... but when I try to drag it over onto worldofwarships.exe it says error can't open file using this app... could it be with steam or am I using the wrong .exe? I wished I would've downloaded the game from the webpage instead of steam cause I can't figure out the mods either... any help would be awesome!!!! I'll try to get screen shots when I kicked my daughter off the labtop.

Hi,

 

Firs of all you should have the replay enabled. The replay files are stored in C:\Games\World_of_Warships\replays (on windows 10, if you use the default install). The names of the files are like this 20180804_231405_PGSC110-Hindenburg_16_OC_bees_to_honey.wowsreplay

You can ease the access by associating extension wowsreplay with the application WorldOfWarships.exe . After this when you double click on a replay file it will start automatically.

Also, if you run Aslain mod pack replays are saved and can be launched just by clicking on the file. No need to drag anything anywhere.
Before I started running the mod pack, I changed the game preferences to enable replays. I was going to link the video I used, but found this video and think it will be more helpful to more people. It shows the old way and the new way.

I find it easier to figure things out by watching rather than reading. If you have that issue as well, please enjoy the video.

Good luck and happy hunting!

In my experience, that means that you have selected a replay from a previous version, and it cannot be played with the current version. Typically the replays become unusable after an update.

You can also record high quality replays with a low-end PC.

I am having this same problem. I can't get replays to load to save my life.  IT just spins and spins.  I am trying to watch a replay from last night.

yeah, there appears to be a bug ATM the drag n drop method aint working for 0.8.3.1. Its like its trying to log in, but coz we log in via the Game centre now I wonder if it has something to do with that.

 

[I been Loading replay files for years in both WoWP and WoWS with mostly no problem. this is the first time I have not been able to load replay file].

assuming a windows pc...

close the game

find the replay and double click the file

one of two things happen

a. you have never played a replay file

that means windows does not know what to do with it and will ask what the associated program is and you need to tell windows it is WorldOfWarships.exe

b. you have played replays before

then double clicking the file should start the game and the replay.

 

Important is that you have to do this from windows with the game closed. if the game is running it does not work.

makes you wonder why there is no 'Load/Play replay' option in the game.

Yeah I have the same issue since 1-2 patches. Cant even replay files that I recorded 5 minutes ago. I double click on them and it actualy says loading game but then I end up on the login screen and have to login. Which either ends in eternal spinning or actualy in port like a normal game login... 

Thats kinda frustrating

Have you tried to right click and select open with, then navigate to wows.exe?  When you right click if you do not see wows, choose select another program/app then find WorldOfWarships.exe (if there is a box check always use this to open these files).  After that you should be able to just double click the replay.  The game has to be shutdown remember.
