View Full Version : cutscenes/movies

11-12-2005, 01:24 PM
I have the pc version, and on the campain at the start or end of a level it begins to run a movie, like a briefing or debriefing. For some reason though it lasts a few seconds before it is cut short and the next level loads.

Anyone else having/had this problem.

Any ideas how to fix it? would like to see what they are.

Are you pressing anything after the movies load? Are you clicking a lot right before the cutscreens are displayed?

i'm not clicking anything once a level has finished. This happens when a level starts up too and i've only clicked once to start that up.

A lot of the movies aren't very long. There are very short cut secens from the movies and there are longer ones made up for the game with narration from the 501st. Are you sure they are being cut short?

they litterally do last about 2 seconds, and are obviously being cut short. :(
These are the ones from the 501st campaign

Ok, lets fix this. What are your system specs? Are you seeing the movies and hearing their sound? These are the short clips from the 6 movies correct?

it is the 501st Journal movies at the beginning and end of each campain mission.
The movie starts with the text 501st Jounal (and whichever battle), i also get voive-over. But this lasts for about 5 seconds and then the soldier select screen jumps in cutting the movie short. Similarly at the end of a successful mission, a movie begins to play with voice-over but gets cut off, by the stats screen. They should definately play for longer as the voice gets cut off mid sentence and mid word sometimes.

my specs are:
Windows: Windows XP5.1 (Build 2600) Service Pack 2
Memory (RAM): 1024 MB
CPU Info: Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.80GHz
CPU Speed: 2752.6 MHz
Sound card: SB Audigy 2 ZS Audio [FF40]
Display Adapters: NVIDIA GeForce 6800 GT v81.89
(no matter what drivers i use it's the same)

Thanks for trying to help. Fingers crossed :)

wow! the game is very unfinished then. The movies might be short but these are definately cut even shorter!
Oh well. I've nearly finished the campain so would have to start all over again to see what i've missed if a fix is found.
