Title: 3DO videos won't play
Post by: Ioskeha on April 27, 2017, 10:02:03 pm
So I was cleaning out my storage the other day. Came across my 3DO and games. System doesn't work, but I still have my games. Came across this site looking for a 3DO emulator. Thought I might give Ur-Quan Masters a try. Installed it and got it setup. Ripped my video files from the SC2 CD. Pit together a 3DO video package as the Wiki instructed. Copied the .uqm file to the \content\addons folder. Changed the setting in-game... and nothing. There is no inrto video. Just slides from the PC version.

How do I get the vidoes to work?

Gotta enable them in the Setup Menu.

Also, if your videos still do not happen to work download and use this package: https://sourceforge.net/projects/uqm-mods/files/MegaMod/Content/uqm-0.7.0-3dovideo.uqm/download

Downloading that package worked. Thank you!

I wonder if the wiki instructions on creating a 3DO video package need updating?

Yeah, to point to the package download.  :P

That's not what I was talking about at all. Linking to the package download is questionably legal, so it's probably best not to do that, particularly from the wiki.

If we could find out who bought PCA Graphics or find a way to contact the former members of PCA Graphics we could get an answer as to who owns the rights, if anyone owns the rights, to the videos.

I tried contacting them a long time ago but never received an answer.
