  • Watch downloaded replay: ERROR

    Hey all ... Hope you can help me with this:

    I want to watch some replays of mine to make a video later. So i downloaded them but then i cant watch them (loading window pops up but then closes again - after only like half a second).
    So I tried it using the console command:
    playdemo replays\5514134 for example

    I get the following:

    ] playdemo replays\5514134
    ReadDemoHeader: replays\5514134.dem has invalid demo header ID.
    Failed to read demo header.
    I get the same message with both my computers.

    Now I noticed that i can watch the newer games (with the newest version with Destroyer). But with all the games with an older version (that i tried) i get the same error.

    Are theses replays lost or is there any way to still watch them?
    Do all of you guys have the same problem or is this a problem that occurs only with my games?

    Thanks for your help...

    Edit: or do I have to post this into the bugs section?
    Edit2: Same problem seems to appear here..

    OK i've just found the solution in the changelog of the new version:
    - The replay format has changed and old replays are no longer viewable.
    Thought this had happened before but seems not to be the case ...
    too bad ..
