Adding messages to stronghold 2

Recommended Posts

I Know, this has often Been discussed, But i was thinking, that maybe that Action should give you the ability to play Media Files ingame.

 

If someone has an idea how someOne could add a new action.

 

Maybe we could add a new action trough the en - us?

 

XML File.

The en us xml file is just for languages. It would require some kind of advanced modification to have the ability to add a completely new action in the editor. Personally, this is way past my level of knowledge.

I'm not entirely sure where they are stored. I've never come across them before, all I can guess is that they're hard-coded in the exe.

I got somthing running which attaches cutscenes to stronghold 2 maps.

for that we need to use the 4 chapter of the stronghold 2 campaign and than we have a map with 3 actions like this:

custom: play cutscenen.

certainly one of those is an Video cutscenen (storybook 2)

as well as that map offers the most sound messages :)

 

someone could modify a cutscene file and its animations to create something quite cool for his map :)

 

ill attached a cleared version of the map:)

To be clear - chapter four of the path of peace campaign? Are there any file changes, or files that need renaming if I use that map - or will the cut scenes automatically appear?

 

If so, this is a massive breakthrough that could lead to the next Stronghold 2 revolution in modding.

Warcampaign xd, the cutscenes are aplearing automatic.

The Files which the cutscenes are using are visible by opening those(cutscene Files).

 

Open them with a Text Editor.

 

Yes its a breaktrough.

Sadly the atachment didnt worked

I'll try to take a look tomorrow - this looks amazing!

 

P.S. Attachments do work, you just need to be logged out to see them. I've fixed this in the next version of the forum.
