Do you want to replay your LOL game video? Or hone your game skills by watching others’ game replays. But when you see the ROFL file in your replay folder, you have no idea what it is and how to play it on your computer. This article will tell you how ROFL files work in the League of Legends game and how to play the ROFL file to replay your game.

What is Rofl File? Why Can’t You Play it?

The ROFL file is created by Riot Game Inc, not a video format but a file that records a game’s data. ROFL files can be sent, saved, and played back. Although ROFL files are playable, they are unlike the video format which can be played in any player software. ROFL files contain spectator data so that the game client knows what actions happened at what times, which allows it to replay actions in sequence. For example, the layout of the file is not like the normal video format files:

id | | action | parameters 0000 |

annie | move | 155 | 188 0001 |

fizz | attack | annie

The theory of ROFL files could make you see all game details when the replay, and you can change the perspective of every champ, which a video format cannot do.
