What are the .orl files that are saved with Observer replays?

I’ve been trying to find information about them, but I’ve had zero luck.
Is there a way to play them back, and do they contain chat messages between the observers?

No they don’t. They are files that we write to help us match up game state to find the observer desync issue that has occurred in ASL and KSL a couple of times. Unfortunately, nobody has reported the bug happening since, so we haven’t had much luck in tracking it down.


That is very interesting. Thanks for making that clear. I have been wondering with a friend about that as well.
