How do I use Netreplays?
Provided that you witnessed the current map change; after having finished a
race or during evaluation, the message "Press Look Backward to save the replay"
should appear at the bottom of the screen. Do as instructed. Alternatively, you
may set the console variable
netdemo_record (previously called
recordmultiplayerdemos to "Manual Save", the default, or
"Auto Save", to automatically save replays--without user input.
You may use
netdemo_syncquality to reduce the file size at the
cost of less accurate resynchronization when playing back. Values range from
1 (most accurate) to 35 (least).
Replays are saved under the replay/online directory. Which is
under the same folder as your EXE on Windows. And under
~/.srb2kart on Mac and linux. The path is printed in console when
you save a replay.
To view a replay, use the
playdemo command in console, followed by
the path to your replay (E.g. replay/online/1552330581-MAP27.lmp)
You may need to add an extra parameter at the end of the command.
-addfiles to automatically load any add-ons that were used
-force to view a replay even without adding any files. You
may experience desynchronization!
While viewing a replay, you may change viewpoint for up to four
players--displayed in separate splitscreens. Set the "Change Viewpoint" control
for these players. You may also use the
etc. commands to view a specific player. You may use a player's number or
name--even abbreviated. You may also use the
setviews command to
change the number of splitscreen views present.
You may fast forward a replay by changing the
console variable. You use a value up to ten times.
These changes are now part of v1.0.4 officially.
