Hi all

I'm putting together several SP adventures and I'd like each of them to start with the Famous Star Wars scrolling intro. I'm pretty sure I've found the files that created the one for Jedi Outcast but how can I edit this?

All I need to do is edit the text that appears.

Would I need some other software or are they generated in the engine?

Is is just a script I can edit?

Any ideas would be cool.

cheers

Hi:)

I'm pretty sure all you need to do is execut the video via script.

This is the code used in Kejim_post for the video that plays at the beginning

rem ( "THE STAR WARS TEXT CRAWL" );
set ( /*@SET_TYPES*/ "SET_VIDEO_FADE_IN", /*@BOOL_TYPES*/ "true" );
set ( /*@SET_TYPES*/ "SET_VIDEO_PLAY", "jk0101_sw" );

I havent tried it so i dont know wether it will work, but try it out, and it SHOULD in theory work:)

Hope this helps

Edit: lol sorry, shouldv'e read your post properly:rolleyes: unfortunatly i have no idea how tto edit the text, sorry :)

The file is actually just a graphic...um...somewhere. No scripting or anything involved to change it. Can't remember where it is off-hand though. Search every graphic in assets0 and find it! :p
