Some existing ships do that anyway (aldo_14's ships are the most apparent about it.........sorry:nervous:)

Move code was taken out by DaveB before he gave the code to us. If you wanna watch movies, play in the regular fs2.exe.

don't tell me, because of the damn Interplay?????

No, I think it was Volition's doing. If they released the movie code, then we could do anything we wanted with V's .MVE files. They are still making money off games with MVE files in them.

Actually it is because of Interplay.  Interplay owns the rights to the MVE format, not Volition, and they are not willing to have that format be public knowledge.  V did what they had to do to let us be able to have the source code at all.

I knew it was something to do with releasing the MVE format, but I thought it was [v]. Heck, let's be grateful we have the source at all.

So,

there is no way to have the GF4FIX and have the CD Check Enabled.

(a bit tardy, but better late than never)

Exits are to the left and right, flamethrowers can be found underneath the seats, and those plasma burns on the carpet are just cannon signatures from all the Shivans running around.  Give them some food and they'll leave you alone.

There *is* a fix for the GF4...oddly enough, just run fs2_open with the -GF4FIX option.  It ought to work.  Have a look at this thread:
http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php/topic,10610.0.html

As for running the game without the CDs, that can't be done without getting an Illegal Hack(tm), something that is discouraged around here.  You can't play the movies with fs2_open anyway.  If you want, you can edit the cutscenes table so that all the movies are configured for CD #2, and that way you won't need to change CDs.  Just copy the movies from CD 3 onto the hard drive and the game won't know the difference.  (Be warned: the movie files are BIG.)

*squints at username* Hmm... do we actually have another GIRL signing up at HLP? :eek2: What does that make, four total? :)

i don't think so.

and i have tried to play the movies on the hard drive, it doesn't work.

Also, there is no browse option on the Campaign Editor to change the location.

Sadly, not at this time, no.  Sorry.

Eventually we hope to have support for other video formats included, and then maybe we can find a way to convert the movies (or rather their contents, to be specific for legal reasons) to divx or something and play them.  In the meantime, it's one or the other.

"This bug made the font and some other stuff look really bad. Use the command line -GF4FIX to activate it. However to be honest you are better off using a registry fix that I didnt know about at the time.

THis can be used for both FS1 and FS2:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Volition\Freespace\D3DTextureOrigin set to 1
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Volition\Freespace2\D3DTextureOrigin set to 1

WHile you are in there you might as well set freespace to use the hi res textures if your machine can handle them:

Create a new DWORD in each freespace registry dir called D3DUseLargeTextures and set it to 2."

Moving right along,

There's a limit on the number of ships in the ship loadout screen. If you enable all ships in the Team Loadout box in FRED, you can only scroll down to the Artemis or so. What's the origin of this? Can it be fixed?

Enter it into bugzilla, we'll try and get to it.

I assume that's something that also doesn't work in released fs2?

As for the CD check, the current FS2 open exe actually has that disabled for testing purposes. The MVE's not playing is entirely unrelated. You will NEVER be able to watch MVE movies with fs2_open.

Sorry.
