Start movie

Post by weedfreak »

Just made a start movie to replace either the Bethesda or ms logo movies. Currently it is an avi file as Rad video tools through wine does not seem to work well. Are we limited to using Bink and are the file names hardcoded?

The short (2Mb) file is available at dropbox

You can use whatever format you want, you don't have to use bik or whatever was used by Morrowind.

We support whatever ffmpeg supports. ;) So give webm a try.

Good to know we are not restricted in format, but how do I get my movie to show instead of bethesda logo.bik for example. I know I can rename my file and replace the file in data/movies if I can get it into .bik format but how do I alter which movies are called? This may be a missing piece of the cs or the names may be hardcoded and will not be free until after 1.0.

From openmw.cfg:

Code: Select all

fallback=Movies_Company_Logo,bethesda logo.bik
