  • Replay Download Error (206 & 0)

    Need Urgent fix..
    I've been trying to download some replays from my friends for a dota 2 movie.. but after downloading about 5% or 10%, it shows "Replay Download Error -206"
    My friends also tried to download the same, and got the same error.. This same problem occurred for multiple replays..
    I thought that this may be fixed after the December 5 Update, but after the update, it is now showing "Replay Download error - 0"

    The games were played around a month back and may become unavailable at any time.. so please fix this issue fast so that we can download the files before they become unavailable..

    P.S. - This issue first came about after the steam update that brought about the "BIG PICTURE" feature. I'm not sure if there is any relation between that and this problem, just thought you guys should know..

    If you want to download the replays before they disappear, try downloading them via

    After downloading them, put them in your replays folder, and you should be able to view them ingame as normal.

    This isnt a fix, just a workaround until Valve fixes this.

      I actually did that, tried downloading via, i extracted the files on my Replay Folder and ingame it still asks me to download the replay

        Have you checked that the files you put in the replay folder are correctly renamed? They need to be "matchid.dem", for example, the replay for match 74646019 should be named 74646019.dem.
        When you download from dotabuff, you get the file thats named just like it is named on the replay servers, but with the ingame download button, dota renames it for you.
        Hope this helps.

        This guy has made an awesome post that tells you all you need to know.
