How to view a replay
Create a private game (the "replay game") using the settings, War2BNE InSight displays under "To view this replay, create a private game with these settings":
Map: Select the map, that the recorded game has been played on.
Game Type: Melee (independent of the recorded game's original game type)
Starting Location: Fixed Order (again independant of the recorded game's original starting location)
War2BNE InSight will ignore the Resources and Game Speed you select and use the recorded game's original settings instead, so it doesn't matter, what you choose here.
Proceed to the pre-game chatroom and setup as many computer opponents as War2BNE InSight displays under "Number of computer opponents".
For example: The original game was a 2on2 with 3 watchers. In the "replay game" you setup 6 computer opponents for a total of 7 players with yourself in slot 1 and the 6 computer opponents in any slots.
War2BNE InSight will ignore the races you select for yourself and the computer opponents and use the recorded game's original settings instead, so it doesn't matter, what you choose here.
BEFORE you start the game, click "View Replay".
If War2BNE InSight successfully prepared Warcraft II BNE for viewing a replay, the dialog "Replay status" saying "Ready to replay the game." will appear, otherwise an error message will pop up. For more information on possible errors, see Error Messages.
If no error occurred War2BNE InSight will automatically start replaying the game, as soon as you start the "replay game".
Start the "replay game".
War2BNE InSight will now playback your game and the "Replay status" dialog will say "Replaying the game.". If War2BNE InSight fails to replay the game, it stops replaying and displays an error message in the status dialog. It, however, won't "alt-tab" to your desktop. This might be useful, if you click "View Replay" and back in War2 decide to play a regular game vs others but forget to "Cancel" the replay.
Again, for more information on possible errors, see Error Messages.
- Watch the game (see Notes on replay below).
- After the "replay game", if War2BNE InSight successfully replayed it, the status dialog says "Finished game playback.". Click "Close".
