Army icons for replays

Since CoH only has two armies that can't play against each other, it gets a bit boring with:

IPB ImageIPB Image vs. IPB ImageIPB Image

Why not create icons for the doctrines and companies instead? That way there wouldn't be a need to mention that in the title.

(Not exactly sure were to post this, kinda belongs in the replays forum, but that's not really for discussion.)

Good idea, but put a label across the picture that says "Airbourne" or "Terror" etc in red writing as well, incase No0bZ dont recognise the pictures.

I don't think that information can be parsed from the replay file and would have to be done manually but still would be kinda cool.

Love that idea. Would be cool if Relic could impliment that soon. Where are you Buggo?! ohmy.gif

Probably can't be parsed, ture. But as it is people write the doctrines in the title, if there was a drop-down for selecting them then that wouldn't take too much effort. Would require modifying the boards code, though.

Perhaps you misunderstood, but I'm referring to the icons used on GR.org Coh Portal and in the replays forums. I don't think it is very likely that Relic would change the replay format in order to make parsing them easier.

Its a good idea and ill think more deeply about it. biggrin.gif

Problem is. Posting the replay the replay parser cant know automatically what doctrine you are. You´re simply allies or axis, not airb or blitz. The forum cannot detect that when posting. post-13661-1143531603.gif
But maybe its possible. Lets see. smile.gif

Would be interesting, no doubt about it.

The replay analyzer shows the doctrine so it has to be in the replay somewhere. I think it's possible but not worth it if it's too many coding cuz the coders have more important things to do.

You underestimate code monkeys.
