Unable to Play Cutscenes

User is offline   beetman

I am having trouble getting cut scenes to play. I've tried editing config files, moving folders around, et cetera with no luck.

Below is how I have my directories setup. What do I need to change to get the cut scenes to play?

C:\user\Blood\

This is where all the game files are stored. blood.ini is at this level and all cutscenes point to "CutSceneA=c:\blood\movie\cs1.smk" for example. I read some where I no longer needed to edit this, but do the cutscene paths need to match what is on my machine? I tied both ways with no luck.

C:\user\Blood\movie

Cutscene files are stored in this directory.

C:\user\BuildGdx_with_JRE\

This is where I keep the buildgdx.exe files. I launch buildgdx and point it to my blood directory.

The game plays fine, just not cutscenes. Any help is appreciated.

Try to move the game into another directory that's not located in your user folder.

Moving the game to the top of my C directory (C:\Blood) didn't work. I tried renaming the game directory to have a lowercase "b" like the *.ini file (C:\blood) and that didn't work either.

I also deleted the settings directory for buildgdx "M210Projects", moved the buildgdx folder to C:\ and no luck with that either.

You should wait for the next version. I thing there's a fix for this.
For now you can try to put real paths to cutscenes in blood.ini

Itís not necessary to write a full path to cutscenes, just write a short (absolute) path - buildgdx will find the videos. Try without binding to drive C, for example like this:
CutSceneA = movie \ cs1.smk
CutWavA = movie \ cs1822m.wav
CutSceneB = movie \ cs2.smk
CutWavB = movie \ cs2822m.wav

If all the files from the "movie" folder are placed in the "Blood" folder, it will be even shorter and the GTI and LOGO videos will be played:
CutSceneA = cs1.smk
CutWavA = cs1822m.wav
CutSceneB = cs2.smk
CutWavB = cs2822m.wav

That did the trick! Cutscenes play without issue now. Thank you very much.
