Hey all. Got a quick question for ya. I'm trying to enjoy watching a few of the downloadable, pre-recorded games that other users have uploaded on dowfiles.com. I put the downloaded .rac file into the correct 'recorded games' folder (as instructed by everyone's README). The game will load and let me go around the map, but it immediately freezes at 0:00 with the following error message: "Sync Error Detected" It does this with EVERY recorded game that I try to watch except my own. Anyone have any thoughts on how I could fix this? :uhm: Thanks!

I've never worked with recorded files, but synch errors occur in online games when you've got differences in unit data (e.g. one of you has modded the W40K or WXP folder directly instead of putting it in an actual mod folder).

Make sure you have the same Mods enabled/installed and make sure that the recordings are from the same version of DoW (since I'm fairly sure that recordings aren't backwards/forwards compatible)

That would be the problem then. I've got 1.41 installed. Thank you!
