DotA Replay Seeker v1.1с

DotA Replay Seeker v1.1с

Hi. This tool should help you to manipulate the replay playback.

Authors: Danat & DonTomaso


  • 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.[IMPORTANT]


  • Since this program is written in C#, you need to have .NET Framework 2.0 installed on your computer (see link below).


  • To run this tool in Vista without any errors you must right click the exe and from the dropdown menu select “Run as administrator”.

Additional file:

Some programs install FW2.0 automatically in order for them to work, so you might already have it installed on your pc.

Plugin System
Starting from 0.9 version ReplaySeeker supports plugins. You can write your own plugins that will do what you want with the replay data, using the interfaces provided in the ReplaySeeker Plugin API package.

Plugin API+Documentation package:

Sample Project:
To make things more simple, I’ve also provided a sample project for those who want to learn how to write their own plugins:

Available plugins:

  • ReplayHotkeys (by Danat).
    A basic plugin that allows you to specify hotkeys for Pause, Speed Increase/Decrease, toggle on/off ally/enemy hp bars.
  • Simple Camera (by DonTomaso).
    A plugin that allows you to control the camera in Warcraft 3 without restrictions.
  • RSExtensions (by DonTomaso).
    A plugin that prevents the replay of pausing when you unfocus the window (alt+tab), when not fast-forwarding.

NOTE: To use this plugins you need to copy the .dll file to the Plugins folder of the ReplaySeeker.

– if ReplaySeeker1.1 doesnt detect replays but previous versions do, then change the value specified in the ProcessName property inside “repseek.cfg” file to the name of the Warcraft process that you see in the Windows Task Manager when Warcraft is running. Most likely you would change “war3″ to “War3″ (idk why it differs on some computers). This is fixed for later versions though (>= 1.1b).
