Replay/video file format

Discussion in 'Richard Burns Rally' started by Dave Johnson, Feb 23, 2011.

  1. Hi all, i'm sure this question has been asked before (i've had a good trawl through the archives but can't find an answer), so apologies in advance. How exactly do you export the replay/video files from RBR so that they can be converted to a more friendly format, and to be uploaded to YouTube. I see that they are .rpl files, but can't find a means of playing them outside the game or a converter to change them.

    Any help appreciated

    Dave.
     
  2. No idea if that's possible. I always used Fraps.
     
  3. LOL, WHAT IS FRAPS??????????????????
     
  4. yeah fraps would be the way to go, the reason you cant convert it to a video file is because the save file isnt a video format!
    Its a game replay format that keeps simple info such as drive line, controller rates etc. so it doesnt take up much space or resorces when creating the file and hence why you can sometimes watch the replay with a different car pack in RSRBR.

    So as said above use FRAPS its a simple free video recording program that doesnt take much to use and you can record whatever you have up on your screen at the time.

    FRAPS can be found here http://www.fraps.com/


    CORRECTION:
    FRAPS trial version is free but should do what you want anyway, its $47 AUD for the full version!
     
  5. And explains why one replay i saved was such a small file <0.5mb.

    Many thanks all.
     
  6. just like he said the file only contains your driving line.. ect.. it will just mimic the things that you do in that race.

    not really a video record of the race.

    thats why you need to load up rbr to watch your replay because the game will process those info in that replay file.
