Is there any way to save a replay?

0

I want to practice casting and I think it'd be neat if I could save a replay that I really liked so I could come back and show my friends. Sure, I could just remember the name, but that sucks. What, you expect me to write them down like some kinda cave-man? Hang on maybe cave-men would resent that comment...

All replays are stored locally on your disk and on the FAF servers. You just need to write down the id of the game and you can search it later.

Gotcha. Well in that case let's pretend I had posted this to "suggestions" and I had phrased it like this:

There should be a way to save replays. Even just making a list of all the IDs with their names and any comments you left on them so you can find them easily in the client without having to manually type in the ID. Could be useful for aspiring casters - and oh boy is this game castable! The recent update adding the ability to draw on the map was very nice, hopefully more casting improvements come down the line soon.

Feel free to post those on the suggestions section of the forums, we're very open to ideas.

A work of art is never finished, merely abandoned

So basically you want to bookmark replays with a comment?

We could add a "bookmark for later" flag to game reviews in the database. In reviews you can already rate and comment a game. And then the client needs a feature, to show/sort/edit your bookmarked reviews.

This is technically possible, but seems like a very special use case with a very very small audience. Calling out @MarcSpector whether you're interested in adding such a feature.

Maybe just add ability to find all replays that you have commented\rated ? (not sure if that is possible, to filter just your comments)

This is technically possible and 95% of the work I addressed, but it needs to happen in the client. (And then adding a bookmark flag is not so difficult in addition)

Just as an FYI technically this is already possible with a custom query.

You would just put "reviews.player.id=={YOUR_FAF_ID}"

In the advanced query box then you could even save it as a favorite query.

Oh cool, I didn't realize it was scriptable that way! This should be sufficient for my purposes, if there's more demand or if anyone who works on the client is interested in adding it then a bookmark feature would be nice but I can just remember this and find my reviews that way. Thank you!

this didn't work for me

It just keeps trying to load and never loads anything

@zlo
For you it would just be reviews.player.id==145

How do you tell what your player id is? I haven't actually gotten a chance to try it myself

Actually you can use your username by doing reviews.player.login=="{USERNAME}"

it is right. I don't want to implement the feature just for gabrilend and a couple of people. It's not worth my time. Sorry šŸ˜ž

@marcspector because no one know about such functionality

Could we make the ratings vault web accessible so links to replay pages could be shared? This would amp-up the number of people who rate replays. And would help the original poster here.

They are web accessible. Everyone could build a website and use it.

What is the URL to the ratings pages? (For clarity, I don't mean the URL to the replay, rather the URL to the page which has the ratings and comments.)

Games by ratings of a player similar to https://api.faforever.com/data/game?filter=reviews.player.login=='Brutus5000'
Just the ratings w/o games similar to https://api.faforever.com/data/gameReview?filter=player.login=='Brutus5000'

I say similar to, because there are dozens of attributes you can add to filters, sorting, etc
