      Default Inflight movie

      Ok, here's an idea and a question.
      When you boot up terran conflict you can see a station in the background with a big video screen thing showing in-game footage, it's cool but I want to watch my own stuff on those projectors.

      Question1:Can you change the video or replace it with your own?
      Question 2:Can this video also have sound?

      Reason: I'd love to watch a movie like Ghost in the Shell or Bladerunner on these projectors while idling in my Colossus outside a station.

      It was possible for X3 so it probably still is in TC - but rather cumbersome ... I think Observe wrote a small howto over at the AD Forum. They are video only.


      Rejoice - For very bad things are about to happen !

      I wouldn't be able to sit around and watch the movie, i'd end up watching it on my DVD player or something,

      The original idea is very cool.

      If it is possible to add the video to the ingame screen, the sound is a minor problem i think.
      You have to extract the sound from the video you wan't to play and save it as a fighting MP3 soundtrack to X3. When you have lined up with the video screen and the movie is starting the only thing you have to do is to switch the screen or a nearby factory to hostile. You just have to get the timing right

      Maybe it's possible to start a new video if the target goes hostile, i don't know. It'll be also a good thing to precache the video and the soundfile to minimze the lag while loading these 2 files.
