  • UI-Watch Tab Folder Lookup Bug + workaround

    in the watch tab, downloaded tab
    several people have noticed already that recently downloaded games do not appear in "downloaded" tab
    they only appear if you select the match you want to watch first (from your profile if it's one of your games for example, or from any person who played those matches)

    As far as I can see, the reason seems to be : there's two folders
    "Steam\SteamApps\common\dota 2 beta\dota\replays" inside are stored old replays "*.dem"
    the new folder is :
    "Steam\SteamApps\common\dota 2 beta\game\dota\replays" inside are stored new replays "*.dem"

    the thing is: the new replays can be accessed through character history, but not through the "downloaded" tab because apparently that tab doesn't lookup in both folders for files.

    temporary workaround : moving the new replays to the old location makes them appear
    also one could make a symbolic link, which works once & for all.

    Solution : simply moving all the files from one of the two then deleting the empty one, then making a symbolic link from the leftover one to the deleted one solves all.
