View Full Version : Start of a SP game question

03-22-2003, 07:20 AM
Ive made the opening crawl text, that was easy to get working HEHEHE :p

but i wondered how do i make the game once its done that cinematic, then goto my first level instead of doing the kyle and Jan anim in the Ravensclaw and then starting the Kejim map :confused:
i take it that it has something to do with putting an altered gamescript in the pk3

I think you have to use your own script which will look like the first few lines of cinematic1.txt.

You will need a little separate room with the star background and the brush with the text crawl shader on it in your first map.

Finally you will need a custom game menu to let start your level from the New Game menu.

I can be wrong, but this is what I remember. There is a thread somewhere here where this was discussed... I don't know which one.

K ta for that info m8 :D

ive managed to get it working

but no menu screen yet so its through a different way

you load the mod
then type my map name in console
and voila

in radiant i targeted klye at the cinematic 1 and cinematic skip scripts ive changed and got the skip to run the cutscene script after. and it worked perfectly =]]

OKOK, menu is optional.

Just download any decent mod and unpack the .pk3, and you'll have a great model how to make your game start through the menus, without having to bother with the console (and when you release your map, the console start is not even professional). It's relatively easy, so that's no excuse.

yep thats exactly the evil little plan i had :D

if at first ya cant succeed.........cheat HEHEHEHHE
but ill change the menu with my own pictures of course =]

Come on. That will hardly take you to the Dark side. To get here you'll need much more than study the works of other people...

Tutorial on it here:


On the record, to work it out I looked through Darth Arth's challenge level pk3, he didn't mind though ......

Just don't tell him, alright? :)
