Nice Work there Ziggy, and it looks fantastic! Just a quick question - What format are those Movie files encoded in? I don't have Hind to hand so i can't poke around with it at the moment.
PS Maybe renaming the files so they won't run, or even delete them would prevent the crashes??
Thanks for the kind words sir, you're welcome. Yes, that's an excellent idea but the Animation cutscenes can already be disabled in game Preferences, no need to rename/delete. Good idea though. For me, the game CTD'd whether they were enabled or not. As for the ".Q3" format, I looked at a couple in a Hex editor and couldn't see anything identifiable aside from "ANIM" at the beginning. An old DOS format maybe? Don't know.
BTW, in my Hind95 tests in XP 32-bit I had an idea to copy the files over to my Win7x64 dual-boot environment just to see what happened (after manually creating the registry keys inside Wow6432node) - I can report that it *didn't* run "pre-installed" in a 64-bit enviro. Cheers!
