Thread: CAPTAIN COX LOAD SCREENS

  1. #1

    Default CAPTAIN COX LOAD SCREENS

    CAPTAIN COX
    PRESENTS




    15 NEW LOAD SCREENS AND NEW LOAD SCREEN MUSIC
    NEW MAIN MENU BACKGROUND FILM











    THE NEW LOAD SCREES ARE DEPICTING FAMEOUS BATTLES
    FROM THE EARLY TO MID 18th CENTURY. ILLUSTRATIONS
    OF THE BATTLES, MAPS AND INFO


    THE LOAD SCREEN MUSIC IS A COLLECTION
    OF CLASSICAL PIECES MIXED DOWN OVER THE
    ORIGINAL LOAD SCREEN SOUNDS

    THE MAIN MENU BACKGROUND FILM IS A COLLAGE
    OF BATTLE SCENES FROM THE EMPIRE TOTAL WAR ERA

    I hope that this mod will add some extra "immersion" to the game.
    It did for me.

    Special thanks to:
    lesterthenerd (for all the pointers)
    LtChambers (for creating FPM, without it this would never have happned)


    Known Issues:
    Sometimes the Load Screen Music won't load, I think it's due to that the
    original game comes with 6 songs+ 6 loading screens, as this mod has 9 loading screens
    (so far) it could be that the game does not trigger the music sometimes. If someone
    knows what controls what and when music get's loaded in to the game I would
    appreciate it very much, but believe me, I have been looking...
    Please give me some feed back on this issue.


    This Mod is using the "MOD" format created by LtChambers.
    Load these Mods with his Mod Manager. Download and instructions as how to use it here!.

    To make it simple

    Sorry guys for the delay. As these are graphic and movie files it's pretty big. And I f'ed up the 1st upload .

    Anyho its up now .

    Hope you guys find it worth the bandwidth...actually I think you will .

    What I might do in the morn is to split the files up, meaning less up/download times...turning in now, been a long day in front of the PC.

    Gonna try these out in a minute. They look fantastic. Was getting upset with the lack of loading screens and the (annoying) battle sounds.

    I'm guessing this replaces those with music?

    So, are the four files made into two now? There are only two files in the folder

    And I must put the LOADING SCREENS in the "activated" part of the JSGME?

    EDIT: Its working good My only little thing is that the movie should be in much better quality

    Even though im having some issues with the mod manager, i installed manually and it works like a charm, i love the background movie in the main menu, also finally having some fitting music during loading screens really helps.

    +rep, well deserved for Captain Cox.

    Cheers guys, really nice feedback there.

    The film was sort a last minute job. I know it can be better and it's on my list of things to do. I would also like to make the number of load screens bigger. The problem is to find really hi-res material. I am thinking to get some books anyway about the era so let's see .

    Would like to add maybe Russo/Swedish wars, The Peninsula war (beware all Sharp fans) etc etc.

    Will try to update the mod towards next weekend with more stuff.

    The movie is great though it does seem big. I really like the load screens, great job on these!
