If you try to play back a replay that was recorded at a different aspect ratio, the aim point in 3rd person view will be off vertically.

I.E. if your PC's display is 16x9, and somebody sends you a replay that was recorded at 4x3, the aim point will be displayed incorrectly above or below the true point of aim when in 3rd person view.

As a YouTube video producer this is rather annoying, for instance it makes it look like the player may be using some illegal Auto-Aim snap mod because the AA turns on without actually pointing directly at the target.

However if you watch closely, you can see it's aiming wrong all the time, here's some examples:

 

This replay I recorded myself in 4x3, and then played back in 16x9 and you can see the aim point is off:

 

Plus these following replays were submitted to me by other users and show the aim point off:

 

FWIW no I don't use any mods, and did a fresh re-install from scratch just to be sure there wasn't something funky with my system causing this problem.

Is it a problem with the replay being from the CT and your client's patch number not matching? Or Vice versa?

When I tested this with a CT replay from another user I replayed that back with the CT client.  9.19.1 and 9.20 replays won't work with each other (they usually don't except in odd cases).

There is pretty much always some sort of replay bug, and this is definitely NOT the worst one.
