Dota ReplaySeeker v1.0

Dota ReplaySeeker v1.0 this Warcraft tool can play .w3g files also known as replay files in Warcraft. This has the capability to rewind, fast-forward, pause, and resume.

Dota ReplaySeeker Features:

  • You can change the speed of the replay from 1/32x to 31x or make it run "as fast as possible".
  • You can specify the position in the replay that you want to reach, and ReplaySeeker will quickly fast-forward replay to that position, pausing the replay when done and playing a sound (to notify you). Note that this works while Warcraft is minimized, which allows you to do something else during the process (like browsing the forums).
  • Rewinding is supported but by restarting the replay and then fast-forwarding to the specified position, so it's not an actual rewind. You can always check whether the replay will be restarted or not by looking at the "sync solution" field.
