I'm still wonder and amazing about how those replay file work?

with just a small file but able to replay entire match record chat and able to change view angel, perspective, slow down or speed up at will too.

 

at first I though replay file size must be enormous 10+GB or so... but hell! just a few KB!?

 

how did it work!?

The replay you are thinking about is actually recorded as a video, which is big in size.

For .WoWsreplay here, the file only contains information such as ship location, direction, speed; where the guns are aiming at, when it fired(There are more ofc). These contents are all in texts so makes the file so small.

When you open a .WoWsreplay using WorldOfWarships.exe, it reads the contents above and render the whole match again with game engine using game models.
