Autosave Replays

Post by JumperJack » 04 Sep 2008 17:27

hello,

i had two questions concerning the option to autosave all replays made in my server.

the first is, if autosave replays is on, where the hack are these replays saved. what i found out by using the forum's search function would be the 'replay' folder, but i can't find them.

the second is, since i haven't found the replays yet, i would want to know whether (in the case of a rounds/team server) the replays are saved per round, or per track (so all the rounds together in one replay, as long as the track is played).

thank you in advance,

JumperJack

I ran a server on TA and autosaved replays, my thought was to create videos with lots of cars on my tracks. My replays was saved in :
*Servercatalog*\Gamedata\Tracks\Replays\Autosaves

Dont know about Rounds or other modes...but in TA the replays of a single racer is not saved, a created replay contains all the cars playing at the map and it's lenght is equal to the lenght of the TA time. So I guess it's the whole map's races that are saved in roundsmode also. You will find out when you finds the replays :D

Gl!

I have a question here. Is it possible to save each players run, as a single replay file?
In autosave? if yes... how.. if no.. why :)

i think its not possible, the simple reason is that there are less files saved. so probably this uses less space on the harddisk. why would you need every replay as a single file? if you want to you can delete some cars from each replay...and save the replay anew

No
Using a script you could save the player best run (using SaveBestGhostsReplay ), but not each run.

yeah slig, i was thinking about this onr. i will make a script that saves top times of each player. We are hosting a competition and going to make a video from the top 10 players. So this will be the best way to do it i think. I make the script run at onEndRace ? i cant test it now.. but i think this will work.

Just a note on this, I have it enabled on one of the servers i have and i found that it generates a 20k-1mb file depending on how many racers are on the server each time a track is raced.

You can soon end up with 50-100mb of files on your server :-)

Im hoping to grab the fastest raced tracks and place them on the website for the racers to go look at at a later date.

cheers

I had used it at PlayerFinish (when the time was better, and overwritting the previous one when a better was done), btw it should also work at EndRace i suppose.

well this thread is very old. but maybe someone will read it

this is also about autosave:
I have an idea for a k-Project-server.
so my question is if it is possible to modify the autosave so it saves every replay on the server(but everyone for itself not 5-10 replays in one)

i would be very happy for an answer
