Are the battlefront films supposed to show?
Ummmmm.... Sorry to put this stupid question forword but are when you go into the campaigns and you hear the scenes from the movies, is there supposed to be a film clip actually showing? I just get this black screen with what seems like a sound clip going. I don't know if this has been in threads or what but can I get an answer?

On the ps2 it's supposed to play a clip. i don't know if its on the pc and xbox (i think it is). If it's supposed to do it, then its simply BROKEN. But i only know its on the ps2.:deathii:

Hmmmmm. Then i am guessing its supposed to be on the xbox and pc versions too.

i have it on pc as well, and it also doesn't show the movies...

on my new comp the movies show
but not on my 2 year old comp

Then it has to do something with the 'power' or speed of the computer. That will explain it...:)

Does anyone know how to troubleshoot this issue? Seems a shame for the rest of the graphics to run so nicely and the movies won't run.

Sounds like you would have to make your own (how you do that i don't know), or just watch the movies enough that you start seeing the characters on screen and know exactly what their doing.

Yes, you should be seeing clips from the movies. What are your system specs?

I have the same problem. Install the game on a comp with poor specs and saw movies. Now my newer comp passes the game's "Analyze" feature but no movies. Also have the current display drivers etc.
Any ideas?

How new is your newer computer? Does it have dual processors or a dual core processor? There have been some problems with these. Set the game to Windows 2000 compatlity mode and set it to use only one processor. You can search around under tech help to find the threads which talk about this.

I'll give it a try...thanks.

Actually the first time I started the game after install., I saw the background scene behind the menus. But the letters on the menu's were indecipherable blocks. Then I quit and restarted. The game is flawless but no movies or menu backgrounds.

I surely will try your suggestions. Thanks for the response!

Re Battlefront films
I`ve just installed this 3 times trying to get past the `CD key not authorized " ( do anything useful or fun with this software.....).

I don`t get the movies either.

Does anyone get these movies on the PC? What drivers are required

Running XP on AMD Sempron 2000+ PC with 512 DDR 333 RAM and Geforce MX 460
