  • Crashing when watching certain Western Qualifier replays

    I've redownloaded them several times to make sure it's not the file, but for some reason, I can't seem to watch games 1 and 3 of rox.kis and AL without DOTA2 closing itself after a couple of minutes of watching.

    Oh wow, same. I wasted so much time trying to watch these two games today, but I thought maybe it was more of a general problem. Game 2 worked fine.

      Happened to me 3 times while trying to view the 3rd game of DD vs aL. Twice on consecutive tries, then on the third was able to view and finish the replay, tried again for the fourth time to see if my computer is just buggy today, then it crashed again. so all-in-all, 3/4 times dota 2 crashed while trying to view a replay of TI3 qualifiers. Hope this won't be the trend as i expect to miss some live games and have to rely on replays. BTW, the crash is instant, like the replay doesn't even load, when i click the 'watch replay' button, it goes black then instantly crashes to desktop.

        My game will load the replays, but in those two games (of what I've watched so far) it'll crash after maybe a couple, maybe 10-15 minutes. Big team fights, lulls, commentary on, commentary off - seemingly randomly.

          Has happened multiple times to me :/

          Same issue

            EG x Roxkis games 1 and 2 are really bad for me, too.


            • #7
              Some of these games are really really bad for crashing here. I never have problems with non-tourney replays and the game is fairly stable on the whole, outside of the occasional crash on map load. As far as I know my drivers are up to date and etc. so what's going on with my setup and these other couple of people?


              • #8
                Not only with TI3 qualifiers, but with G1 too.
                I reinstalled the game 2 times since this began to happen and tried to redownload the replays, but the problem still persists.
                There is no problem downloading the replay (aside the server download speed of course) or openning them. But generally the game shuts down after 5 or 10 minutes watching the replay.

                  I have the same problem...
                  I tried to watch the game replay from the match Team Mineski vs Vici Gaming - Game 1 today, and my game instantly crashed.
                  Its the only replay that i can't watch. Just when i press one of the "Watch Highlights" or "Watch Replay" buttons, the game instantly crashes.
                  I just deeply hope that this issue will be fixed ASAP.
