Question Text in cinematics?

Anybody know the nitty-gritty details on how to edit the .sp file under the strip directory to make those captions appear?

I tried mimicking what's already there. Here's the beginning of my file:

VERSION 1
CONFIG W:\bin\striped.cfg
ID 58
REFERENCE SP_SILAS1
DESCRIPTION "sp_silas1"
COUNT 4
INDEX 0
{
REFERENCE 01gorog
TEXT_LANGUAGE1 "So, the upstart Padawan who has been slaying my disciples."
TEXT_LANGUAGE2 "So, the upstart Padawan who has been slaying my disciples."
TEXT_LANGUAGE3 "So, the upstart Padawan who has been slaying my disciples."
}
INDEX 1

....and so on. My REFERENCE tags are identical to the .wav file that's supposed to play with the caption in question. But I see no subtitles in-game. What else do I need to do?


Thanks!
Sam

Well, the first thing to come to my mind is to type every file name in CAPITALS. Otherwise I don't right away notice anything odd. I hope this will help you forward.

Okay, I also have a problem with the strips.

I have this:
VERSION 1
CONFIG W:\bin\striped.cfg
ID 50
REFERENCE CINEMATIC
DESCRIPTION "cinematic"
COUNT 26
INDEX 0
{
REFERENCE 31ST3032
TEXT_LANGUAGE1 "Stormtroopers again..."
}
[...]


I am using in-game sounds. The map name is cinematic.bsp. Anybody know what the problem is? Do I have to edit the ID somehow?

Thanks in advance.

I never touched the ID on my strip file.

If your map is called cinematic.bsp, then your strip file must be called cinematic.sp.

Make sure the count is actually equal to the number of entries, counting entry 0, i.e. if the last entry says INDEX 55, then the count line should say COUNT 56.

Okay, CALL THE STRIP THE SAME NAME AS THE BSP FILE was the problem. Let me see if it works...

No...it still doesn't show any subtitles.
