LOLReplay 0.8.2

I’ve just released an update which should fix most of the major issues with replay recording and playback. I realize there are still a number of high priority issues that are yet to be resolved, and I will endeavour to get onto those later this week. Again, thanks for the patience and support, and check back shortly for further updates soon!

Update

Hi all, I’ve been getting a lot of emails from people asking about when the next update will be out to resolve the current replay issues, so I thought I better just make a quick post to let you know that I have been working on it.
I’ll hopefully have most of the major issues sorted out by the end of this week, and release an update as soon as possible. Thanks everyone for your patience, things have just been flat out since I got home unfortunately.

Replay issues with latest patch

As many of you have noticed, there are some issues with replay recording and playback with the latest League of Legends patch. Unfortunately I’m still away on holiday for a few more weeks, but in the mean time most replays may still be played by right clicking the replay in the replay list, selecting repair, and using the suggested patch version. Apologies for the delay on getting a proper fix out, but I’ll look into as soon as I get back home at the end of the month.

Status Update & Travel Plans

So as most people have noticed, development of LOLReplay has slowed down a little recently. Some people have been questioning what will happen with the impending release of official spectator mode, and if LOLReplay will continue to be maintained. I can tell you that LOLReplay will definitely continue to exist in one form or another.



I have various ideas about where I would like things to go, and how we may be able to enhance and compliment the official replay system. I’ve had a busy few months, and it’s been tough trying to devote any time to even maintain League Replays and LOLReplay, let alone develop new features, however I will hopefully be getting back to things soon. And have actually already done a fair bit of work adding support for the official replay format and various other improvements which you will hopefully see in the near future.



With that said, I would also like to mention that I will shortly be in the US, hitting up PAX East and GDC, as well as travelling to NYC, LA and a few cities in Canada as well. Feel free to hit me up if you would like to meet up and have a chat about LOLReplay / LOL / Life or just grab a drink / be my tour guide / have a spare couch for me to crash on ;)



Cheers,

– Hax

Season 3 Issues

As many of you have noticed there are currently various issues with replay recording and playback, which have been introduced as a result of the Season 3 patch. I am aware of these issues, and will attempt to resolve them as soon as possible.


Update – February 13, 2013
As a quick update, I’ve released a patch which should at least partially fix spectator mode recording, and playback of any existing Season 3 replays. Please note that various functionality such as recording of match statistics is currently not working. We will endeavour get everything fixed again, but it may take a little more time.


Thanks for your patience.

1.0.0.146 Issues

As you may have noticed, the latest League of Legends patch causes a whole range of issues with LOL Replay. Unfortunately Riot has changed a lot of stuff which makes supporting older replays difficult. I am working on fixes for all these issues (spec mode recording as well as older replay support) and will try get them fixed ASAP.

Thanks for your patience.

Site Updates


We’ve just deployed a fairly major site update. The main changes are listed below. Please have a browse around, and if you run into any issues then let us know on the forum. Enjoy!


Spectate Live Matches
View live matches in our new live matches section! Including featured matches from NA, EUW, EUNE, TW, SG, BR and Korea. LeagueReplays spectator system also buffers 5-6 minutes of gameplay prior to the current match time, allowing you to start watching from the beginning of the match rather than skipping straight to the current match time and inevitably missing all the early action and first-blood!


Summoner Search
Search for summoners by name. Searches all supported regions (NA, EUW, EUNE, BR, TW, SG) for the given summoner and allows you to view their replays, matches and statistics.


Summoner Profiles
New summoner profiles, including detailed match history, statistics, and even live matches (if they are currently in game).



We have a lot more still planned, and this is just the first step. So stay tuned, and check back for further updates in the near future!

Spectator Mode Replays


As many of you are no doubt aware, Riot has recently made some fantastic improvements to spectator mode, including the ability to skip back and forward in time and use the automated “Directed Camera”. Along with all the other great features such as the ability to view the match from either and/or both teams perspective, view extended stats such as gold earned and much more, spectator mode is obviously a far better way to view replays as well as live matches. Recently we have been working to leverage this system so that you can enjoy the features of Spectator mode for all replays you record.


We’ve just released a new version with initial support for recording all matches in full spectator mode (excluding Co-Op vs AI). This is quite a large step towards a complete replay system, though of course we still have a lot more planned, so stay tuned!


If you would like to give spectator mode recording a go, make sure you have the latest version, and enable the “Record Spectator Replays” option in the LOLReplay settings, as it is currently disabled by default.


Click here to download the latest build


Please let us know if you run into any issues, and once we are happy that it is sable enough we will most probably set it as the default recording method in future versions!

Match Stats and Replay Naming


As many of you have noticed, a number of LOLReplay features such as match statistics and replay naming are currently broken for new recordings. Unfortunately Riot has again removed stat logging, which is what LOLReplay relies on to obtain this data.


We are looking into alternative solutions, and have a few ideas in mind should stat logging remain disabled. We appreciate your patience and we will do our best to come up with a fix for these issues as soon as possible.

Version 0.7.6.9 + Uploads Re-Enabled


0.7.6.9 has just been released, which should fix various issues users were experiencing with the latest (Hecarim) patch.


Replay uploading should also now be functioning again as usual. Apologies for the long delay getting that back up and running, however it’s back, and we look forward to seeing many more of the communities matches uploaded to the replay archive in the near future!

Fix for crash issues introduced in latest patch

We are aware that the latest Riot patch has been causing issues for some LOLReplay users. Unfortunately we only just found out about the issues ourselves, however we have a new version which should fix things.

Please try the latest build and let us know on the forum if you have any further issues. From all reports so far this should resolve the problem.

Note that the automatic screenshot functionality has temporarily been disabled, and old replays may not play correctly until new patch files have been uploaded (hopefully within the next couple of hours).

Update: Crash issues caused by patch 1.0.0.134 should now be resolved, and screenshot and quick load functionality have been re enabled. Be sure to update to the latest version if you have not done so already.
