Here's a small tutorial how to add movies to a mod:
Spoiler :
1. Put the movies in your mod-folder assets\art\wonders\movies
2. Edit CIV4ArtDefines_Movie.xml (in xml\art) and add an entry for each movie you want to use like this:

3. Edit CIV4BuildingClassInfos.xml (in xml\buildings) and add an entry for each wonder you want to use like this:
4. Edit CIV4BuildingInfos.xml (in xml\buildings) and add an entry for each wonder you want to use. Point the movietag to the movie like this:
5. Add text tags in some text-xml ie. Civ4GameText.xml (in xml\text) like this:
	<English>. .. .. .. .. .The Westerkerk ("western church") is a Protestant church in Amsterdam, built in 1620-1631 after a design by Hendrick de Keyser. The church is right next to Amsterdam's Jordaan district, at the bank of the Prinsengracht canal.
The spire is the highest church tower in Amsterdam, at 85 meters (279 feet). The crown topping the spire is the Imperial Crown of Austria of Maximilian I. The church bells were made by the brothers Hemony.
Rembrandt van Rijn was buried in the Westerkerk on October 8, 1669. The exact location of the grave is unknown, but presumed to be somewhere along the northern wall. Rembrandt's lover Hendrickje Stoffels is also buried here, and his son Titus van Rijn may also be. Other painters buried in the Westerkerk are Nicolaes Berchem, Gillis d'Hondecoeter, Melchior d'Hondecoeter and Govert Flinck. The church organ is decorated with doors painted by Gerard de Lairesse.
The Westerkerk is located close to the Achterhuis (now Anne Frank House) where diarist Anne Frank, her family and others hid from Nazi persecution for two years during World War II. The Westerkerk is mentioned frequently in her diary - its clock tower could be seen from the attic of the Achterhuis and Anne Frank described the chiming of the clock as a source of comfort. A memorial statue of Frank is located outside the church. - WIKI</English>

Intromovie for Wolfshanze Mod on YouTube
Brandenburg Gate and Trafalgar Square?!?!?
Okay... what did I do wrong? I've got the building info pointing to the right movie tag-line (I know, because I can successfully get a static DDS file to show a picture), then I use the following code for Arian's movie files:


So, I think I have my code right, but in-game, when you construct the wonder, all I get is a blank blue screen where the picture/movie should be (with an okay button). The game is stable and all, it's just a blank screen like there is no movie or picture. Am I using the BIK file correctly or not? Is there something wrong with the BIK file or my XML code? What do I need to do?

I can easily get a static DDS picture to show-up in game if I replace the path with the DDS path, but I can't get the movie to play when I point the path to the BIK file (and yes, the path is right... the files are all in the same folder).

The movies work fine for me. I use Graves History in the Making mod and no problem. Also no problem with low quality graphics setting. I assume you can play and see the movies.

This might be a silly question cause I'm sure you're a good modder but did you point to the movie-file in the buildinginfo-xml??

My code in CIV4ArtDefines_Movie.xml:


This is the code in CIV4BuildingInfos.xml:


I'll try your mod to see what happens...

Anybody else got this problem??
I only have the Semperoper in the game so far, but it works for me without trouble.
Thanks for checking Refar.


I checked with your mod and no problems.

This might sound silly but I have an actual screenshot of Brandenburg but don't know to display it in this post ??? :confused:

Here's the dl:

please put your files on a different file host than megaupload. geeeez that has got to be the worst file host I've ever encountered. Try mediafire.com, its literally 10x better.

I've never had any problems with MegaUpload so I intend to stick with them. It took me quite some to upload the files and I'm not gonna do it all over again on another host. Sorry...
No dice... the XML is up-tight, I'm sure... Both in BuildingInfos.xml and in Defines_Movie.xml... yet, this is all I get:

A blank screen... if I change the path back to one of the DDS files in the same directory, I get the right screen, but the BIK files just don't work. At least not for me... this sucks.
Okay... nevermind... I solved the problem, but it was weird...

They didn't like being FPK'd in with the rest of the art... they worked fine if they were in a seperate folder, but if I FPK'd them, they didn't work.

I have them working fine now though, so thanks!

Glad to hear that you solved the issue! :goodjob:

I hope to post some more movies today...
Any requests?
