Scenario Design

AOW2 Movies

Compiled by Josborne (Original site)

With the "Show Movie" event, it is possible to incorporate BINK movies into a custom scenario. AOW2 comes with quite a few BINK movies that are part of the single player campaign. The nice thing about these movies is that the scrolling marquee of text displayed during the campaign is not actually part of the movie. Many of the movies are generic enough to be used in specific campaigns for cut scenes or foreshadowing of events to come. Below is a general description of what is contained in each of the default movies, useful if you want a reminder of what each movie.

To get yourself a nice BINK viewer (which also doubles as a nice BINK converter for your own movies you might like to include) check out:

NOTE: Something to be aware of when including movies in a scenario is that the movie only plays for the person triggering the event. It does not pause the game for everyone. In a "Simultaneous Turn" game the gameplay will proceed for the other players while the person who triggered the "Show Movie" event watches the movie.
