The campaign videos might be more trouble than I remember. Looking over my F4:AF Support Archive, I copied this from somewhere (probably Frugal's), it might help...
To get the "progress movies" and victory/defest movies working in the campaign:
Copy movies off the original Falcon 4.0 CD (the one released back in 1998), and put them in the "movies" directory and the "movies/korea" directories. You should get video clips when successful, and dire news resports (via 'news video') when the DPRK are rolling across the DMZ.
There are 17 different movies for Falcon 4.0 which are supposed to be working. My guess is that F4Af was not shipped with these film components dur to the space requirements on the CD. IN any case, you can get these movies off the original Falcon 4.0 CD that was realeased in 1998, and put them in your movie file (I put it in 3 plac3es to be sure, MOVIES, COMMON and KOREA2005). Im sure only one of these was necessary but I put it in all 3 because I did not want to guess where they really needed to go.
If you cannot obtain these movies and want to make your own, I think you could do it. These are *.AVI movies at 320X240 (yes, small) in a 4:3 aspect ratio. In order for the movies to make sense, you need to know what each one is called and the "event" that triggers it. So here in the rundown:
FILENAME RELEVANT EVENT
E1A.AVI The DPRK is now launching an all out attack on Seoul
E1B.AVI The DPRK has taken Seoul
E2B.AVI Pyongyang falls to combined forces (but war not over yet)
E3.AVI DPRK retreats from South of teh DMZ / heavy resistance
E4.AVI The US retreats from North of the DMZ / heavy resisistance
E5.AVI Fresh troops, materials/reinforcements arrrive. Major
offensive planned against DPRK
E6.AVI Combined Forces Campaign is unraveling/early setbacks
E8.AVI CHINA ENTERS THE WAR against the US
E9.AVI RUSSIAN ENTERS WAR against US
Intro.AVI INtro for teh whole game
OF.AVI Intro for Iron Fortress
OR.AVI Intro for Rolling Fire
OT.AVI Intro for Tiger Spirit
XL.AVI DEFEAT. US PULLS OUT.
XS.AVI GRINDING, BOODY STALEMATE
XT.AVI UN brokers Cease Fire, pyhrric victory, like a stalemate
XW.AVI COALITION VICTORY / CAMPAIGN WON
Most of tehse now work. For whatever reason, I still get teh Lead Pursuit INtro videos to teh campaigns rather than the originals (the originals had lots of video and narration). However, all teh campaign-specific event movies do work. These range from 6-24 MB in size each, and run for 12-30 seconds each or thereabouts. Now I cant wiat to see custom movies. That said, I doubt anything will be as polished as teh originals. I heard 3rd hand that Lead Pursuit may not have had teh space on teh CD to ship the movies, but hopefully someon can host them. This is not hacking the exe or the game, this is adding back movies which belong in the campaign and give it life.
ps. I figured out why the Intro movies for Iron Fortress, Rolling Fire, and Toger SPirit didnt run. These files are renamed IF.AVI, RF.AVI, and TS.AVI in Falcon4 AF. I just reneamed the original files to these and I got the original movies back. Its really cool. You get a lot more.
Falcon 4 Allied Force is really great, but these movies just make it better and the intros are better than the 10 second clips provided with F4AF.
