Title: 3do movies setup
Post by: kingrockit on May 13, 2012, 08:35:07 am
I'm having trouble getting the 3do videos to work. I have read the faq and seen this topic:

Still, I can't seem to get it working.

I'm on a mac 10.6.8 os x by the way.

Right now I have it set up like this:

content/addons/uqm-remix-disc1.uqm (and disc 2 and 3)
content/slides/ending/victory.duk (and .frm .hdr .tbl)
content/slides/intro/intro.duk (and .frm .hdr .tbl)
content/slides/spins/all those files

So from the other topic listed I'm guessing that I need to take those files and fit them in a .uqm. Is this as simple as making a .zip and changing the extension? Is this even what I need to do? I tried it and it didn't work.

I think it never worked for me, either. So I'd be somewhat interested in figuring this out, too.

ok, I got it to work!  I think the process must be simpler for windows users. Anyway, for mac users, here's how I got it working:

I downloaded the 3dovideo.rmp file from here:

I created a folder named 3dovideo and stored all the 3do video files in it (opening, ending, spins) as well as the rmp file.
Then I went into terminal navigated to wherever the folder was stored and typed "zip -r0 3dovideo" this creates a zip file with no compression.
I then changed the .zip to .uqm and put that file in my content/addons/ folder.
And that should work. I don't think the ship spins are working, but the opening 3do video plays.

Interestingly, although the faq lists the music.uqm and voice.uqm files in the packages folder, they do not work unless they are also in the addons folder.

Also, I prefer the slides from the pc version, but it's nice to have the option to see the videos.
