Own Video Messages for your Szenario.

Hello, I'm Teutonen Ritter from SH Heaven!

Sorry fo my bad English!


You like the LOTR Mod for Stronghold, but you can't make own Messages for your Szenario? No Problem, make own Scenarios with Messages and more. Time for fantasy in your mind.

Own Messages in Stronghold.

Step 1.
What for a Message will you have for the Mission? Search in Stronghold folders the files that you must have.
Example:

messageshpivsr63zt.png

I will a other messages as in the picture. I search in the Firefly Studios\Stronghold\binks with the Tool Bink Video this video.

So and the result is: Stronghold\binks\ap_civil9.bik and Stronghold\fx\speech\ ap_civil_01.wav and not to forget: General_Message3.wav.

Step 2.
Make your own Bink Video with Rad Game Tools. A typical Stronghold Video have the Width 128 and the Height 128. Scaling your video of this mass. Make a new .wave file and then to the last step, the subtitle. Recommended is a video without Sound.

Step 3.

Open the mfg. file with a Hexeditor, because here are the subtitles. Give the subtitle text in this format in the ground of the file.

Search the Text in hexadecimal.

When you have the text, you must edit the Text in this Format whit the Hexeditor, and the text must have not more Letters, as in the original. A letter more as the original, and you cannot more view the Story from the Castles in game and not view the subtitles from the messages. Sorry, this is so.

Also the program linked to does not work, it says that a dll file is missing from my computer. Does the second and third parts work with steam versions of the game?

Unfortunately though, since your username is not Teutonen Ritter, the option is not available as the account does not exist.
