You will need the following enabled on your game room while watching the recording:

Patch: v1.5 Beta R5
Mod: LN FFA rules

If you believe the patch and mod combo is as mentioned above, and you are still unable to view the rec, kindly provide us a screenshot of your game room and we will look into it.

Are you able to watch the recording? you won't have to spend hours waiting for the Pause to happen, it happens only after a few mins from the start.

The recordings available on Voobly seem to be corrupted. I have tested all the available recordings and it seems they all have the same problem. This could be a bug. Do you have more of such games that we could be made aware of?

No not at the moment, I have seen some games like this in the passed tho but I can't remember which ones. If I see any more ill bump up this thread and post them in here.

Can you pass this on to the other Voobly Technicians to investigate ? and let us know of any progress ? because I think this Pausing issue has been going on for quite some time now, it would sometimes work if you select allied vision. but not in this case

A game will usually pause when you attempt to play the recording with a different mod and/or patch combination than the one it was originally played with. I am not entirely sure if Voobly failed to log the mod correctly or if the game was played with a different build of 1.5. Either way I can confirm that such occurrences are extremely rare and does not warrant any further investigation.

That said if and when we get further reports on similar cases, we will certainly check this further.

First of all my apologies for not being able to respond to your thread. Thank you for bringing this to my attention.

A recording getting paused while attempting to view it is different than not being able to play it. The ones you are not able to play are definitely problems with the recorded file itself. They are probably corrupted or incomplete which is why they cannot be played.

For the later ones you have posted, it's not a bug. There are 2 main reasons why your recording will pause mid game

1. If you are not using the correct mod + patch combo

OR

2. The mod and/or patch has undergone an update after the game was played. In this case if there was a modification to any of the data files for the mod, you will not be able to view the recording, unless you have the exact version of the mod, the game was played with (which can be difficult to obtain as most mod curators would choose to update the old one with the newer version)
