Hello,

Is there a guide somewhere explaining how to upload replays from GPL? I found a very old thread in SRMZ but all the links suggested there are defunct.

I'm not sure I understand what you're trying to do Dronzo. Are you trying to record a stream with you driving GPL, and then upload that to SRMZ or YouTube or some other video service? Or are you asking how to upload GPL replay files with the .RPY extension? If it's the .RPY files, where are you thinking of uploading them to?

I want to upload my own replays so that I can send them to a few friends.

If your friends have GPL installed, all they need is the replay that you saved after your run (a replay is saved in GPL/replay folder in a .RPY format as Saiph said) .
Just zip all the ones you want them to see and send the file or post it in a thread.

If they don't have GPL, you need to record a video with FRAPS or some similar tool.

You want a file hoster?  https://www.sendspace.com/

Make them smaller before upload with 7-zip  https://www.7-zip.org/

Use 7zip format (instead of default zip format) and highest compression rate (instead of default normal) to get the files zipped as small as possible.

Stefan, for not such experienced "friends" I prefer the .zip, because every windoze can unpack it ;)

Hmm... I thought that this might be complicated. I have started the process but am already lost and not even sure what to ask! I shall consider it further over the next few days and see if I can formulate some intelligent questions.

You are right.
Also for .zip I recommend highest compression, not normal.

@Dronzo: Just ask and we try to help. :)

Thanks. First I have to work out what to ask!
