My replays are ALWAYS wrong. They record the entire battle WRONG! It shows us always losing. My replay of Gldiator Servants Of Darkness is like wrong man.

Does anyone have a single clue to this devilry!!!!

Some game record the choices that you've done (Told a uit to go to this co-ordinate, for example), and if there's a little variable in it, such as someone not dieing, or a treb shot going slightly off, then there's room for error. That can change the entire course of the battle

I'm not sure if that's what happens for BFME2, but it seems logical to me

Well it is like no one controls the players, they just sit there like neutrals and don't move, so they get attacked and die.

That explains what happened to my RTW records. Thanks EoJ.

Never heard of that. Hm... You haven't messed about with the files, have you?

Never went anywhere near that stuff it just did it by itself.

I've had this problem before.

XYYY, the problem is you're recording Gladiator Maps.

Gladiator Maps use modified INI files that the game only uses for the purpose of the map. When a map that uses a custom INI file is saved as a recording, it tries to load the normal INI instead of the Custom INI it does not have.

That's why you have all those weird lags. Another problem may very well be the lag you experienced during the game.
