Replay Data to Stream Overlay

Hello everyone!

In the midst of the CoH Will Never Die Tournament, I had a series of thoughts about improving the quality of the casts for future tournaments or even shoutcasts in general. While fumbling around with dyxstra's old COHRA (Company of Heroes Replay Analyzer) and looking at CoH2's spectator and replay modes, I was wondering if I can do something similar with CoH1.

I am not thinking about modding the game, but more of parsing replay data from the coh1 .rec files to perhaps a browser or an overlay program that can display information that would enhance the experience for casters and viewers alike. For example: if the American Player selected Infantry Company Doctrine at 5:23 min, the program would show that Infantry Company was selected when the replay reaches 5:23 min. Or at 45:12 min, when a riflemen squad was killed on retreat, the program would should a riflemen squad KIA. Maybe even show what both side's unit composition looks like or show player commands used.

However, I do not know the details of how the replay data is structured (such as how exactly does CoH time stamps actions in the replay). Is there anyone I can get in touch with who may be able to help me out?

Thank you in advance,
