What is a ROA file?
An ROA file is a game replay created by Rivals of Aether, a fighting game available for Windows, Xbox One, and the Nintendo Switch. It contains plain text that details what happened in a Rivals of Aether match. Rivals of Aether uses the text an ROA file contains to reconstruct the match and play a replay.
Rivals of Aether is a 2D fighting game that is similar to Super Smash Bros. The game allows players to play against its AI or other players, locally or online. Optionally, players can save replays of their matches as ROA files. These files are text files that record each fighter's actions in the match.
Players access Rivals of Aether replays by selecting Extras → Replays from the game's main menu. As a player watches a replay, they can change the replay speed, advance or rewind frame by frame, show hitboxes, and toggle the game's heads-up display.
How to open a ROA file
You can open an ROA file in Rivals of Aether (Windows). To do so:
- Place the file in Rivals of Aether's replays directory.
- Open Rivals of Aether and select Extras → Replays.
- Select and play your ROA file.
How to convert a ROA file
Because ROA files are text files, there is no way to convert them to .MP4 or other video formats. If you want to record a Rivals of Aether replay as an MP4 file, your best option is to play the replay in Rivals of Aether and record your screen using a screen recording tool, such as OBS.
