Replay Seeker

This tool should help you to manipulate the replay playback.

DOWNLOAD LINK (ver 1.1) (Download from Google Drive)

Features of the software

  • You can change the speed of the replay from 1/32x to 31x or make it run “as fast as possible”.
  • You can specify the position in the replay that you want to reach, and ReplaySeeker will quickly fast-forward replay to that position, pausing the replay when done and playing a sound (to notify you). Note that this works while Warcraft is minimized, which allows you to do something else during the process (like browsing the forums).
  • Rewinding is supported but by restarting the replay and then fast-forwarding to the specified position, so it’s not an actual rewind. You can always check whether the replay will be restarted or not by looking at the “sync solution” field.


Since this program is written in C#, you need to have .NET Framework 2.0 (22.4 mb approx.) installed on your computer (see link below).

For Vista users: To run this tool in Vista without any errors you must right click the exe and from the dropdown menu select “Run as administrator”.

Plugin System

You can write your own plugins that will do what you want with the replay data, using the interfaces provided in the ReplaySeeker Plugin API package.

Plugin API+Documentation package: ReplaySeeker Plugin API.rar

Sample Project

To make things more simple, I’ve also provided a sample project for those who want to learn how to write their own plugins: SamplePlugin Project.rar

3. RSExtensions (by DonTomaso)

A plugin that prevents the replay of pausing when you unfocus the window (alt+tab), when not fast-forwarding.

NOTE: To use this plugins you need to copy the .dll file to the Plugins folder of the ReplaySeeker.


If ReplaySeeker1.1 doesnt detect replays but previous versions do, then change the value specified in the ProcessName property inside “repseek.cfg” file to the name of the Warcraft process that you see in the Windows Task Manager when Warcraft is running. Most likely you would change “war3” to “War3” (idk why it differs on some computers).
