In the 0.9.6 Update we've fixed an error, which prevented playing the replay backwards. This allowed us to add snapshots - timestamps which may be returned to from any place in the replay. More details below.

Snapshots

This function allows to save a timestamp and camera position and restore them at will. All snapshots data is stored in XML file, which is created in the same folder as a replay and has suffix _params in the <snapshots> block. XML file will appear only if there is any data it should store. In case with snapshots it will appear after the first snapshot is created. XML file is tied to the replay and may be freely transferred with the replay file to other people, who then can use snapshots.

Creating and loading

Snapshot is created by pressing F5. This saves the timestamp of the replay, camera position and other parameters and creates a record in file in the snapshots section. Switching between snapshots happens in the following way:

· F6: try to switch to the snapshot closest from the left on the time scale (earlier than now), if such snapshot exists.

· F6: try to switch to the snapshot closest from the right on the time scale (later than now), if such snapshot exists.

· F8: try to switch to the most recently created snapshot

To delete snapshots, you must edit XML file and delete the snapshot records. Snapshots are existing and loaded on the replay-by-replay basis. So, the controls switch to the snapshots of the exact replay.

Loaded parameters

When snapshots are used, the following parameters are restored:

· Camera position

· Camera FOV (or camera zoom)

· Replay time

Also, the replay is paused after loading the snapshot.
