keep getting an error saying "replay file is corrupt. game will now exit"


Are you seeing this when the game first starts to load or after the loading screen? Also, is this happening for all replay files or just specific ones? Is that your summoner name on the PBE?

also could have a stand alone client for watching the replays, for when your internet is down and you want to watch a replay...

This has to do with the relationship between the spectator service and the replay service. We don't allow spectating of Co-op games, so replays aren't generated for those games either.


What is the reason why we aren't allowed to spectate bot games?

Will you be able to save replays for later? Say something interesting happens in one of my recent games, can I only see it if it's under my match history? It would be cool if each summoner had 10 slots for example, to store replays they want to keep.

Outstanding - I'm reserving this slot, for feedback.

EDIT 1:
FEEDBACK LIST:

1) My camera was stuck for the first minute or so, haven't tried to repro yet, could've easily been user error
2) Ping icon is there, but doesn't do anything
3) Chat is disabled, probably intended
4) Sometimes when you use the replay last 15 seconds, graphical effects from previous effects (prior to those 15 seconds) spring up all over, causing momentary lag
5) Uhhh.. I just had my replay up, joined a game, tried to start the game, and the replay is still up but it says my game is in progress now. After leaving the replay, it asked me to reconnect to my game like normal, but it was a little odd haha. Wait, now it seems I can't connect or something, and my game vanishes sometimes with no opportunity to reconnect. EDIT: Got in, had to restart client!
6) When I watch a replay, it requires me to restart the client before it appears in my Replay Browser.


I can echo having the same issues 1-4, though I havent tried 5 or seen 6

We will look into 1-4 and work on a fix as we are able.

For #5 this is part of a feature we are considering that would allow you to watch a replay while waiting in the queue for another game (especially useful for streamers). If we can work out the kinks that you are experiencing it would kill your replay and auto-load the game (can't have both running at once).

#6) We could use your game logs to help reproduce this

The storage location is currently fixed but we may add an option at a later time.


Do replays save in your LoL folder (or a sub-folder of it), or in some other location?


BTW I also would like to add my voice to clamor for an alterable storage location. I am obsessive about managing my hard drive space and I really hate anything that will save stuff without letting me decide where it goes.
