    Dota 2 Replay Manager

    I've been doing some searching and so far I'm unable to come up with any results on the matter. How would the community feel about a replay manager for Dota 2? Basically it will give you a GUI for organizing, downloading, rating, sharing and launching replays.

    Currently there isn't much support for saved replays. If you wanted to watch one that you saved at a later date, you'd either have to find the match in the history and click the watch button or use the console to launch it.

    If there's enough interest I'll start working on a basic manager with a GUI as a prototype. Displaying basic match details for the games will probably follow after that. Suggestions and feedback is welcome.

    +1, would be appreciate it sir, it would be nice if the apps can filter tournament match and normal one. and show the match detail (hero, item, match date) without revealing the winner first..

    and i agree, there is no support for saved replay atm..

    oh, if it possible again, filtering tournament match can be more specific like what tournament the match on (the international. starladder, etc)

    u got my full support man

    there is another way to watch replays you saved: go to the steam/steamapps/common/dota 2 beta/dota/replays and copy the name of the replay you wanna watch. launch dota, search for recent games and paste it in match id.

    but i agree - a replay manager would make watching replays MUCH easier.

    If the API allows me to gather data about the tournament, which I believe it does from what I've seen, then I can add a filter for tournaments. I agree with it being spoiler free so I will include that option as well.

    @Phoenix This is exactly why I want to create the manager. A lot of people don't even know where their replays folder is. To me the current methods make you go out of your way to watch a replay.

    Update: Prototyping is well under way. I've already got a majority of the GUI laid out as well as some of the basic functions like displaying the replays in a list and launching the replay in dota. Once I'm satisfied with what I've got I will release the prototype and try to include a list of features and maybe even the order in which they will come.

    Since the API is still inaccessible I will probably parse replay data from dotabuff.com (granted they're okay with it) until Valve figures something out. They should be fine with me doing that since the parsing only needs to take place once, as I will be saving that data into a file for the replay manager.

    EDIT: I should have included a quick snapshot of the current GUI. Keep in mind that this is still a work in progress. The replays list view is dynamically generated at runtime (and upon changes to the designated replays folder) so until that's all ironed out it's just a placeholder button for now. http://i.imgur.com/lw2qN.png

    I haven't given an update in awhile and I'm sorry about that. The prototype is, for the most part, done and is able to read your /replays folder and launch your replay without being in the game as a requirement. However, I may hold off on releasing the prototype as I have some very good news about the future of the project...

    I was contacted by a very respected member of the community, who is also a great programmer, with the interest of collaborating on the replay manager with me. We will be working together to try and make this program as feature-full and easy to use as possible, and we've already begun brainstorming interesting ideas for the future of the project. We have big plans for this, but it may take a bit of time to get everything implemented. I will create a release thread for the program to separate discussion of replay management from discussion on the program itself in my next update.

    No details have been given, but I'm pretty sure that it's been stated that a form of replay management is coming eventually.

    It will be a replay managing tool that includes most, if not all, of what the wc3 replay manager can do.
