Thread: Historic Battle Videos

  1. #1

    Default Historic Battle Videos

    As many would have seen,Historic Battles are tied to videos introducing the battle before you confront the enemy.

    However I found a trick in unit development where you can alter the units in the video to your own,creating a historic playground for non vanilla units added. A big difference in vanilla to Ferres romans as example. Only catch,how can you save the new video to feature newly added models? In a mod they can be already there for use when a player wishes to play them,but as a seperate video,as in a FMV for your mod,how is this achieved?

    Models are altered by going into the data\world\maps\battle\custom files after you added them to your EDU etc,replacing battle ones with your own.

    Hoping all of your guys and girls out there are OK and your family in RL?

    There is no video. It's a sequence of camera movements, defined in a script, happening dynamically as the battle begins (they are not already recorded or anything), accompanied by audio tracks set to be played by the script at particular points. So, whatever units you have on the battlefield will also appear in the intro.

    Oh darn,yes I stumbled upon the script,but thought it was a video. Still it would be nice to record if possible,oh well back to the popcorn.

    Appreciate the reply.
