Video Replay?

Tue Feb 28, 2017 11:43 pm

Will this game have a Replay function, as many other AGEOD titles do? I notice that TYW hasn't, and I think this feature would be a significant addition for PBEM.

In any event, I am very excited about this title; ECW being my favourite wargaming period.

Thanks

Paul

There is a method where you can get a reply in all games even if it is not easily accessible in the options menu.
Use the Control ~ command and it will bring up an option where you can then use the 'replay' command if you know the file or folder of the game you wish to replay.

Agree, replay in the option menu is important.

Thanks Durk. I thought that only worked if the particular AGEOD game created a replay file, and that not all do. Have you got this feature working in TYW? If so, I'll try again with the Command Console

My memory is so bad. I have been looking around. The last discussion of this is still there in forum history, I suppose, but I have been unsuccessful finding it.
I use replay rarely, so I have not memorized the path. It is something like this:
The control and tilda ~ sign does bring up the menu in games like AJE which do not have convention play.
The command line then is LoadReplay (the computer path to the file) Hopefully someone with a better memory can chime in.

Almost six years later, I finally got the replay function in ECW to work!! ... by following Durk's instructions a bit more closely ... ;)

Now, does anyone still PBEM this game, I wonder?

I'd be interested in having this working too. I'd be grateful if you could let me know the path to the replay file.

I've just installed the game after several years and am finally getting to grips with it now I have the various fixes in place.

I wanted to get the replay feature working too, but the replay toggle in the options window wasn't there. But I found the setting in UserInterface.opt that enables the feature (change the 0 to 1), and I can now turn it on in the options window.

    / ********************************************************
    // Replay
    // ********************************************************
    inoCanUseReplay = 1 // replay is NOT allowed in current game engine, player can't activate it with inoReplay (stored in general.opt, shown to player in Options Window, Main Menu)

When using the LoadReplay command in the game I don't need to enter the full path, and it works just fine.

Have they modded or improved the game in any way?
