Deep linking replays

Mon May 01, 2017 3:27 am

This may be beyond the scope of the project, but I'd love to be able to upload my replay and link it to a friend, where they could then upload their MPQs and view the game. I think this would be pretty damn revolutionary for the BW scene, actually.

we have reached out to http://bwreplays.com/ with more than 40 votes on our feature idea to integrate bwreplays.com with the OpenBW replay viewer, such that replays can be watched seamlessly.
However, we have not gotten a response so far.

At the moment we are not planning to host replays ourselves.

BWReplays is kinda dead. I'd be interested in creating a replay repository that would allow people to upload them and then link seamlessly to openbw. If that's something you're interested in, let me know.

Sure, that's interesting. We've already implemented seamless watching with SSCAIT. Check http://www.openbw.com/sscait-listings/ as an example.
It retrieves the latest replays via a web service. The SSCAIT server needs to be configured to allow access for it to work.
