View Full Version : Where to find game dialogue scripts?
03-29-2004, 10:12 PM
I'm searching for the text of spoken dialogue, both in cutscenes and gameplay, in JO (and other Dark Forces and Star Wars games too if I can find them). Anyone have ideas of where they might be found?

Assets2.pk3, /strip/, any file named *.sp. They open with Notepad.

thanks! i managed to get all that i wanted in just a couple hours time. something else i should have asked, are the cutscene's viewable in a similar manner (so i can grab screenshots)?

The ingame cutscenes are just scripted sequences using the game engine and thus unviewable outside the game. The prerendered cutscenes are .roq files. I think Raven's toolkit has a tutorial on making them and the program necessary. The existing videos you can replace with any .roq movie you create. To eliminate a video entirely, just rename a blank text file to the name of the video you want to get rid of and pak it up. They're in Assets0.pk3, /video/, *.roq.
Grab the toolkit off Jk2files.com.
Here's a tutorial if the tookit doesn't have it: ROQ Tutorial (http://www.campway.ro/DarkKnight/ROQ%20Files.doc)

yes, i was referring to the high-quality prerendered scenes. i'm only needing to view them to get screenshots, not create new ones. is there no player out there that can handle the roq files?

I searched around a bit and found this (http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=82303&release_id=199569). Go to the 'Media Player Classic' section and download the latest version (right now it's MPC 126.96.36.199). Be sure to get your operating system's version. The one on the top is 2K/XP, the bottom one is 98/ME - it has the initials in the filename. It plays the RoQs fine. To capture a screenshot, on the menu go to View>Options. On the list to the left click on Keys. On the box to the right, on the line that says Save Image, bind it to VK_HOME (or whatever is convenient). Play your video, then press the HOME key (or the one you bound) to capture a jpg or bitmap image. Have fun. :)

thanks samuel! that program works great (though it has strange orange pixels in some scenes, something that the game engine filters out i would guess). it'll take some work to do proper resizing, but well worth it over the other screencap program i was using. it will be great for other movies i need screenshots from as well. you are darn good at information brokering, for a human being ;D thanks again for all your help
