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:

- all downloaded 1.13b patches don't work for me

    Good luck to the hurricane path people. Is TH still in Houston?
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I think so
    +1
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Yeah we got nothing here did not even rain
  • Ghan Ghan:
    We could use some rain.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am not complaining though Hurricanes are not fun I have been through alot of them
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I evacuated for it just incase since I live in La Porte pretty much right on the water (in Houston area). Didn't see anything. It's a good thing for me anyways.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It's too bad that Blizzard messed up so terribly with Reforged.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Still has a 0.6 user metacritic score.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    (Out of 10)
  • Varine Varine:
    I haven't even tried it yet because everyone said it sucked. How do you get .6 out of ten?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am waiting for Dwarf Fortress to come out on Steam then I am on it.
  • Accname Accname:
    I play Dwarf Fortress from time to time.
  • Accname Accname:
    Its Okay.
  • Accname Accname:
    But the performance is sub-par. Does not seem to be well optimized.
  • Varine Varine:
    Is the Steam version coming with a graphical overlay or is it using the ASCII graphics still?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Steam version has the graphical overlay.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Steam Version has graphics, a new interface and will be integrated in the steam mod stuff
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I didn't think WC3 Reforged was that bad. It pretty much did what it stated (to me at least), but then again I can care less about reforged campaigns and all that. I just care about gameplay.
  • Varine Varine:
    I think people were hoping for a resurgence in mod support. I have little interest in the actual game tbh
  • Varine Varine:
    Plus I know they added that Dota precedent clause where Blizzard can steal your shit which isn't cool.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    They sold Reforged to the community as primarily a huge graphical uplift with high res textures and redone cinematics.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    They even showed one of the redone cinematics at Blizzcon and that very cinematic wasn't even in the released game.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    So I think folks were angry about that.
