Own video, text and sound Messages in Scenarios.

Sorry for my bad English. I hope, that a Stronghold Fan
write this Tutorial in better English.

Your can make own video, text and sound effects
in your Stronghold Scenario. This is great, when you will have
a better gameplay atmosphere in Stronghold Scenarios.

1.1 Theory over the Messeage

The Message is great and amazing, when you will
have a better atmosphere in the game.

Remember you're the original Stronghold Mission,
and the LOTR Mod for Stronghold. The Mission have own Sounds,
Video and text effects in a Mission. Your can better to narrate a Story.
There are a potential where in Age of Empires 2.

1.2 The action "Text Message"

At the first, your must make a Text Message.

1. Download and start Tsearch.
2. Start Stronghold and load the Stronghold.exe in Tsearch.
3. Start in the Editor a Stronghold Scenario, with the year January 1066.
4. Set as effect for the year "Wolf Sleeps".
Now see the picture.

All Messages in Stronghold have this format. You can make new Messages, but there must in this
Format. Before you make a new Messages with Video and Sound, make a Messages in the Category "Briefing" with the value 03, because your must select the Message in the Editor. smile

1.4 Tipps

List from all Catagorys

01 = tutor
02 = titles
03 = briefing
04 = adviser
05 = rt_taunt
06 = rt_anger
07 = rt_plead
08 = rt_vict
09 = sn_taunt
0A = sn_anger
0B = sn_plead

How to counting Symbols

Use Radgametools for Movies
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.

When you want Sound in the Videos, the Compression Level from the Video must are 104 and not 4.

A alternative

The Sound File are too big?
You can use Golden Wave or a another Program to convert the Wave with IMA ADPCM. After the compilation is the .wave not so big.

Hex Rechner
A good hexadecimal Computer: http://de.selfhtml.org/helferlein/dezhex.htm

.mlb is the abbreviation of Movie, Listen and Briefing.

1.5 A Briefing for a Mission over the stronghold.mlb

Important! You can't make a letters or Symbols in the Description Tool from
the Editor in your Scenario, because the Briefing from the stronghold.mlb else not run.

Re: Own video, text and sound Messages in Scenarios.

Lord Stronghold only wanted to remind us about this matter, and indeed there is a possibility that someone wanted to do something with that, and that he didn't find the time back then.

There is me for example, I still have something to do for Stronghold Europe, the Crusader mod which I really like, but I just can't back together with myself these days. neutral On the other hand, there are moments I give a rest, and I could spend that time doing something good for the community. smile

Re: Own video, text and sound Messages in Scenarios.

Sorry to hear that. Still, I do have to say that you have brought it close to perfection. smile Of course, there are things which you would like to do some time, but from perspective of a player, it is a great mod already, and one wouldn't change a thing there right now. smile

Thanks you for bringing us this mod! smile

This is a volunteer forum. I understand you may want comments instantly (after all who wouldn't), but folks may not always have the time. They come on the forum when their times, schedules and whimsy dictate. A bit of patience is all smile

That doesn't justify needlessly bumping a thread. If what was added was relevant and wasn't thread bumping for the sake of it, it would have been a different story, as you say.
