Replay Says It’s Incompatible
If your replay file says it’s incompatible the most likely reason is that the game was recently updated. Rivals will only play replay files that match the version of the game they were recorded on. You can switch the game back to an older version to play your replays by changing your game properties in Steam.
Right click on Rivals in your Steam library > Click Properties > Click Betas in the menu > Select the version of the game that your replays were recorded on. After viewing them you can switch back to the regular version of the game from this same menu by choosing “none”.
Replays Won’t Save
If your replays won’t save, your replay folder might be full. Rivals will automatically make room for new replays to avoid this, but it will not clear starred replays. If your starred replays are filling up all of the slots you can save them by moving them to another directory. Simply cut/paste the .roa files from %localappdata%/rivalsofaether/replays into another folder.
