This tool gives you the possibility to watch replays of all patches! Additionally it fixes invalid map paths (no annoying copying of maps by hand has to be done), as well as renames the Chinese or Russian players' name. On top of that, this program works for both ROC and TFT and it just takes a few clicks to watch any replay!

How does it work:
After installing ReplayKit you have to open the w3g file via double click (or right click/open with RK) and the magic begins! If the replay was played on a different patch version, you get a short message then WC3 gets patched and started. After quitting WC3 the original version is recovered automatically and you receive a notification. ReplayKit also handles invalid map paths for replays.

ReplayKit requirements:
Windows XP or later
Warcraft 3 TFT installed with patch 1.26a
220MB memory space (180MB patch data + exe plus another 40MB for a automatically created back up of your game)
optional: a ROC WC3 CD to watch replays from patches 1.00 to 1.06

Quick Installation-Guide:
Download "ReplayKit.exe" here:
Download "ReplayKitPatch.mpq" here:
Move both files into your Warcraft 3 folder.
Start "ReplayKit.exe" to install it quickly (creates a backup of WC3 and sets registry keys).

All Features:
'ReplayKitPatch.mpq' [Release 3 - 183 MB]: Supports all patches from 1.00 to 1.26a
NO CD Required: from 1.07 to 1.26a
ROC CD Required: from 1.00 to 1.06
Fast and stable patching (creates a backup automatically).
Requires just a fraction of memory space compared to other patchers.
Easy to handle.
Additional Features: Adjust names, colors, chat, run in windowed or silent mode. Life bar even in early patch versions.

How to enable the Additional Features:
All of these new features must be activated by passing special parameters to ReplayKit. Basically what you have to do is, open your registry and modifying the caller string.
Quick guide on how it's done: open your registry and go to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Warcraft3.Replay. Open the (Standard) string on the right site and add your feature parameters right behind "%1".
Example string: "C:\Warcraft3\ReplayKit.exe" "%1" -names -colors -noobsallchat
Detailed guide:

Patch 1.24ab and Patch 1.24cde are incompatible, but the build versions of their replays are the same. So for this case you have to tell ReplayKit which version is the correct one (if you don't know that, run the replay twice to figure it out).
Using Windows XP, a window "Run as" may pop-up. You have to unselect the "protection of the computer and datas against the unauthorized program activities" then click OK.
All the testing was done on an English WC3 version. If you have another language installed, feel free to report bugs, so they can be fixed. Normally there shouldn't be any, except for some text-language-mixing.
