Please be aware that with each new version and micro patch, replays from previous versions become un-viewable with the newest version of the client.  

Replays are useful for reviewing your games and adjusting your strategy, as well as for several support needs such as submitting bug reports and some rule violations.

Here is how to enable them:
Close the game client.
Backup the "preferences.xml" file located in the game folder. You may wish to save this backup copy in a separate folder.
Open the original (not backup) "preferences.xml" file using a text editor like Notepad.
Scroll to the bottom until you see the following lines:

Code: [ Select all ]


Paste two new lines before the </scriptsPreferences> line:

Code: [ Select all ]

<isReplayEnabled> true </isReplayEnabled>
<ReplayCameraUpdate> 30 </ReplayCameraUpdate>

It should now look like this:

Code: [ Select all ]

<isReplayEnabled> true </isReplayEnabled>
<ReplayCameraUpdate> 30 </ReplayCameraUpdate>`

Save the file and launch the game client.
Enjoy the game!

All of the replays will be stored at the "..\replays" folder, which will be automatically created inside the game folder.
To launch a replay, close the game client first.
After closing the game, drag and drop the "*.wowsreplay" file to WorldOfWarships.exe, or associate the .wowsreplay file extention with the game executable.
Every battle generates a separate replay file. Port cannot be recorded.
wowsreplay files can only be played with the same client version. Replays may not work properly with newer version of the game client.

Replay controls:
PageUp & PageDown for playback speed control
Home for normal speed
End to pause (which is actually x100 slower speed)
Left Mouse Button (LMB) for toggling camera direction between free and recorded
> & < for fast-forward & rewind (can be used together with Ctrl)
