The replay section lately needed more moderation then it normally should, we're going to make some slight changes on the section rules, read carefully please, your post might be deleted if you don't.
All threads still need to be tagged with the version the replay was saved on, so that no one later will download a replay that she/he cant watch any more.
So the title should look like this:
"[2.600] Playing PE on Angoville"
Balance discussions should take place in the Balance Section only. The replay section is to talk about the game posted, giving hints about errors made in it and how to improve. If you want to discuss a possible balance issue shown in this replay, create a thread in the Balance Section and link to the replay thread.
"I didn't watch it yet ..."
This should be obvious but it's seen here too often. Posting in a replay thread requires that you actually watched the replay before, posting general comments about strategies need to stop. We have a strategy section for it.
How to post a replay.
Create a new thread, chose a title and add version tags to it, then explain why you're posting the replay and what's happening in there. For example if you have a problem beating a specific unit or strategy then post it, so anyone watching the game can concentrate on your question.
When done this, click the "Manage Attachment" button and on the next pop-up browse to your replay and select it for upload.
Where do I find the replays and how to watch one?
All replays are saved in "My Documents -> My Games -> Company of Heroes -> Playback". From there you need to upload replays and those you want to watch you need to put in there.
To watch it you need to start up the game and open the multi player lobby, in the history tab there you'll see all the replays stored in the above folder, if you click one you can see more infos about the game, like on what map it is, what players were in and what factions they played. Click on "Load replay" and it will start.
Can I watch older replays?
Usually this is not possible, but if you have a look at this thread you can find a tool that allows it to watch replays from previous versions of CoH.
