Two things about watching replays

  • Two things about watching replays

    First there's this one thing that bothers me to no end:
    When watching a replay at an increased rate (2x, 4x, ...) the camera movement is increased by the same factor.
    The camera movement or sensitivity should always stay the same regardless of the actual replay speed, namely at 1x speed (just like in Wc3 DotA)!

    Second, I've noticed that one is unable to fast forward during the picking phase because the hero picks screen overrides the replay manipulation interface (that little collapsible window where one can change the replay speed and fog view etc.).
    So one has to sit through the picking phase and cannot skip it or do anything else. The only way to skip it would be to fast forward before that picking phase begins which is during the time players are still loading.
    I suggest that maybe the small window with the replay manipulation options should receive some kind of topmost attribute.

    Relating to the latter: I discovered that there are hotkeys to increase/decrease the replay speed so disregard that proposal.

    What do you think?

    Yep, I agree. That would be better

    Does anyone else think that Icefrog didn't make this update?

      +1 to both, I was just about to post a topic on the exact same thing.

      What are the hotkeys to change speed? +/-?

        -/+ are the default ones, yes. I set them to NUM-/NUM+ just like in Wc3
