Warcraft III TFT replays

I was curious if there is a way to watch old replays on a newer version of WCIII TFT? Or is it as I fear and you can only watch replays on whatever version you currently have installed? I keep a couple of installs so that I can watch old replays, but I wanted to post some here, as I saw others doing the same. Also is there a way to dl older patches? And if none of that is possible is there free or relatively cheap software that could video capture/record what is on my screen, as a cheap last resort? Any help is greatly appreciated.

I'm confused as to what you're requesting in the first part of your post. However, as for video capture I believe there's a program called FRAPS. I've never used it as I have little need for recording what I do on the computer, although I've heard it suffices.

When you watch a replay that is from a previous version of warcraft, say 1.18, then the updated version won't let you watch the replay.

As far as I know, there is no way.

You can get a free version of Fraps, which I've used, but it only records 30 secs at a time. You can, however, record as many as you want, so if you're willing to patch them together in Windows Movie Maker, then use it, else pay a small price for the full version. Unlimited recording :)

>"I'm confused as to what you're requesting in the first part of your post", Varine.

I think I got the first part of my question answered, thanks guys. What I am refereeing to here is that when you play battle.net online it automatically upgrades you with the latest patch, thus making old replays recorded prior to the patch incompatible with the new upgrade. They cannot be viewed. I am praying that there is a way around this, however, with what I know so far this is pretty much wishful thinking. 5x + Rep if anyone can genuinely help me get around this. I have some killer replays, but seems odd to circulate them; no one would want to revert to older version just to watch.

>Thanks Chocobo. I didn't have those links, though I already keep a couple of installs just for the purpose of watching old replays. I am looking for something that others would find less cumbersome in order to watch some of my older replays.

>Ninja_sheep, thanks man. If those work that might get me one step closer, and it is the closest thing I've seen so far in making it easy to switch back without having to reinstall. Unfortunately it's still a 50 megabit file and that is a lot to ask someone to download. If I can get that to work for me, I will totally plus rep you. I don't know if it works yet, or if others would be willing to try it. I'll post back later.

watch old replays,how to switch by hand,patches,downloads,versions,ROC,TFT

I was asked several times, how to watch old replays. So I spend some time to prepare this:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

how I do it:

later version:
- download the patch you want to use
- use the patch

earlier version:
- copy a war3.exe, which is older than the patch you want to use, and paste (overwrite!) it into your Warcraft III folder
- download the patch you want to use
- use the patch

1.10 special:
- copy all 1.07 files and paste (overwrite!) them into your Warcraft III folder
- copy all 1.10 files and paste (overwrite!) them into your Warcraft III folder

1.11 special:
- copy all 1.07 files and paste (overwrite!) them into your Warcraft III folder
- copy all 1.10 files apart of war3.exe and paste (overwrite!) them into your Warcraft III folder
- use patch 1.11

1.12 special:
- copy all 1.07 files and paste (overwrite!) them into your Warcraft III folder
- copy all 1.10 files apart of war3.exe and paste (overwrite!) them into your Warcraft III folder
- use patch 1.11
- use patch 1.12

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

All these files are for WarCraft III - The Frozen Throne - English and come from different sources (Blizzard, GameFront, GamersHell, ingame and from users). I renamed them all to make it as consistent and obvious as possible:

- Blizzard never released a stand-alone 1.10 patch
- ROC1.10 won't work, TFT1.10 shows up instead of ROC1.10 after starting Warcraft_III.exe
- all downloaded 1.13b patches don't work for me
- there is a difference between (some?) replays of patch 1.14 and 1.14b
- there is a difference between (some?) replays of patch 1.20 before and after d
- there is a difference between (some?) replays of patch 1.24 before and after c
- patches fail when there is a comma in the path

    They aren't cutting my responsibilities or interjecting in my management abilities or anything, it's just stupid shit that comes up. And they don't exactly have people lining up for my job, there's not that many people applying for the positions I hire
  • Varine Varine:
    Eh, whatever. Thanks for listening guys
  • jonas jonas:
    Sure :) Let us know how it ends
  • Varine Varine:
    All of these things will end happily, they're just stressful. And I still lack many good friends that I can go to, and the ones I can are preoccupied with similar things. Thus general chit chat, cuz for some reason TH and Ghan and Tom all actively keep it up.
  • Varine Varine:
    Just gotta keep Miss Mazie up through the week until her shock wears off and she realizes that she still has family all around her, and bossman will do whatever he's going to do and I'll respond appropriately when it happens. Thank you all for the support, I do very much appreciate everyone being here for me through the years

  • vypur85 vypur85:
    Best of luck Varine!
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    I just gotten myself an offer to work in China. The pay quadruples my current one. Damn.... Not really ready to start a new life there in China.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I have heard that they pay pretty good to English teachers in China - you would be an expat
  • jonas jonas:
    Cool, what kind of job?
  • Accname Accname:
    I would be careful with jobs in China. They can be hit and miss depending on where in China you go. Places like hong kong / Shengzen / Beijing can be neat. Other places not so much.
  • Accname Accname:
    I would recommend searching for some first person experiences for the city you got the offer in. Especially now when the political situation in China is deteriorating.
  • jonas jonas:
    Accname, long time no see
  • jonas jonas:
    What have you been up to
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Hey Accname, welcome back.
  • Accname Accname:
    Not much. Working in the Renewable Energy Sector as an IT Consultant. Its okay, but I think I preferred working at the university. It was more relaxed and you met all kinds of crazy people there.
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    I gotten a teaching position for Biology in a college in Wuhan (yes, there)... I suppose it should be fine there (I hope). Many of my ex colleagues are teaching in China as well currently (none in Wuhan though)
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    And I signed the contract already. I guess there's no turning back....
  • jonas jonas:
    @Accname how many hours do you work? I heard in some sectors IT consultants rack up insane hours
  • jonas jonas:
    @vypur85 sounds nice, have fun : )
  • Accname Accname:
    I am supposed to work 40 hrs a week, but I can work more if I like and I will be paid for those hours (as long as I don't go too far, there are laws and company policies, etc)
  • Accname Accname:
    In practice its basically work as much as you like, as long as the job gets done in time.
  • jonas jonas:
    Haha, my job is like that as well... that usually means I have a few 70-80 hours weeks a year, and lots of 20 hours weeks...
  • jonas jonas:
    a few weeks ago, one of my friends basically said "jonas, I received an invitation to submit something to conference X but I'm too lazy to do it and also the conference isn't advanced enough for my high level of research*, why don't you write something? Oh by the way, the deadline is in two weeks. Enjoy!" so I got two 80 hour weeks out of that kind offer. (*of course he didn't say those parts, but it's a better story this way)
  • jonas jonas:
    now I'll have next week off to make up for overtime :p and I'll play some good old gothic 2
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Hope you are enjoying that gothic 2~
