I download replays, and they won't play.
I checked in the game files for the replays, and all files are blank, although the outline is there.
I am perplexed by these restrictions on my freedom to watch, and will have a ponder about it today, and do some research, as to why.
All I have done lately is to make back ups of all my four OS drives, on to my ext. USB 3.1 2TB drive.

This has happened before and can't remember how I fixed it.
Not to self, life was never meant to be easy.... :)

Yours Sincerely,
Mr. Angry.
:o :D

New patch came on Wednesday. Maybe that is the problem?

Well, the game is up to date, as I checked so that I could watch some replays by you good chaps.
Downloaded a replay, clicked on it to play, and my monitor just looked at me blankly, and tried again..nope.
Booted up another SSD with Win 7 on it, and got the same result.

Not tried with Win 10 yet, because we don't play together very well, but can't be bothered today, and will boot it up tomorrow to update the game, and then try again.

Looks like I have broken something.... :o :)

Perhaps you would like to nip over for some Brandy, beer etc., Jogga and have a look?............. :trl

First thing is to make sure the replay is from the correct game version.

It could be that windows is no longer associating replay files with the game correctly. You should be able to drag the replay file and drop it on the WorldOfTanks.exe file to play it if that's the case. It may appear as just WorldOfTanks if you have windows set to not show file extensions.

Thanks Homer :o7
I updated the game before attempting to down load a replay or three from some chaps, as they were recent ones.

I will try the 'drag and drop' tomorrow, as it is cold here (heating now turned to 'off'....not made of money y'know.. :D ), and I am going to bugger off to my bed (with the lecky blanket on), and view some stuff on my laptop, as I need to research a few things...........with Nimzo in mind.......... :trl
