Cannot watch a replay (invalid)

Post by Prof_Hari_Seldon » February 19th, 2018, 12:07 am

I downloaded this replay
viewtopic.php?f=3&t=47789

And this replay
viewtopic.php?f=3&t=47709

I put them in my saves folder C:\Users\linux\OneDrive\Documents\My Games\Wesnoth1.12\saves

Both of them are (invalid) when I try to view them in the most recent version of Wesnoth

I checked a more official replay and it works:

http://www.wesnoth.org/forum/download/file.php?id=21199

How do I fix the first two replays?

Maybe you didn't extract the files? You need a program like 7-zip that can extract compressed files, then right click on the file you downloaded and select Extract All.
(Also I assume by most recent version of Wesnoth you mean 1.12.6, since 1.12 replays won't work with 1.13)
Hope this helps! :)

I figured it out. After I unzip the compressed file I cannot leave the replays in their own folder they have to be in the saves folder not a subfolder.

Thank you for the quick response.
