  • Request for match ID timed out

    I get this error when I try to click on match details for a tournament replay. It only happens on one of my accounts, which makes me think that it's an account related local data issue. However, I tried deleting all of my user data and disabling steam cloud but I still can't get it to work. Any ideas?


    console prints this:
    Queued pending match details request
    CGCClientJobRequestRecentGames failed to get reply
    Failed to get match 127407111 details: 0
    match_details_updated 127407111 m_pPendingMatchDetails = 06BC8A20 waiting on 127407111

    I'm actually getting the same problem as you as of today, I just click "details" and then about 20 seconds later the timed out message pops up. I've tried every tournament I have a ticket for, even tried TI2 and Dreamhack replays, nothing works.

    This is the error that pops up on my game...and my console entries are about the same as Mudblood's.

      Getting the same error message for any tournament replays. So now I can't watch a single replay of tournaments I paid for. This is just wonderful...


      • #4
        me too
        i cant see any repaly of the defense 3 and premier league 4, is very annoying this


        • #5
          premier league 4 ok i was getting the timed out response. all night yesterday. today i was able to access the match details.
          but later when i went back, again timed out on match detail request. ive noticed the replays are only accessible to me for a small portion of the day.
          besides not being able to download replay from client (i use the console to copy the address and then download from browser/idm). this has seriously made me rethink of ever getting a ticket again. FIX IT

            I have exactly the same issue --- I got it while trying to level up a courier, and all of sudden got one of those screens pop up, extremely irritating, because now I can't watch anything.
            If anyone has a fix for this, please post it. Thanx a lot.


            • #7
              This is happening to me a lot, I'm frustrated.


              • #8
                Same here one of my accounts cannot view replays request match timed out, hope this can be fix soon. thanks devs

                  Temporary solution for those who cannot watch pre-downloaded games:
                  1. Open steam library
                  2. Right click on Dota 2
                  3. Properties
                  4. Set launch options
                  5. Type -console, press ok and launch the game via steam's play button
                  6. You will have the console opened, type playdemo replays\xxxxxxxxx (Replace x's with the match id)
                  7. ????
                  8. Profit^^

                  Edit: Also as a note, the reason why we cannot access the tourney games is a server side bug (80%). We can access the non-tourney games so a client-side bug would not let us do so.
                  Edit 2: Confirmed that it is a server side bug. Simply your client tries to connect to a cloud file and the bug is preventing you to do so.

                    All G-1 LAN replays say "Request for Match ID timed out"
                    Console command doesn't help:

                    ] playdemo replays\202314010
                    CDemoFile::Open: couldn't open file replays\202314010.dem for reading.

                      I'm getting this error too. Was watching the G-1 replays earlier.
                      Can't view other matches' details now.

                        Working for me after today's patch.


                        • #13
                          For me, it's ALL replays at the moment - tournament and non-tournament alike.


                          • #14
                            Not working here too, Request for match id timed. i paid for tournaments. FIX IT


                            • #15
                              Bump for fix please. People paid money for something and they are not getting a service. I don't want to do it but I'll have to ask for a refund from Steam if this holds up, and I probably won't bother buying tickets again in future.

                              I bought the compendium to support the tournament and because one of the advertised features is the courier which you can change based on views. If you can't view the replays what's the point?

                              Money down the drain. Thanks tho.
