[Solved] Intro cinematic not running?

Post by heebejeebes » 01 Mar 2019, 02:40

So I started a new game and instead of showing the normal intro cinematic it goes straight to Jiub on the boat. Is this by design or a bug?

Did the credits and title videos play? How did you install the game, and what version of it? IIRC, if it's a preexisting vanilla install of the CD/DVD version, the video files are left on the disk so OpenMW can't find them and they won't play. You have to copy the files from the CD to the right directory (Data Files\Video). If it's the Steam or GoG version, then I'm not sure.

Just for reference, I have the steam version and it contains the intro cinematics.

I am using the original disks, I'll bet that's the issue, thank you.
