Same problem as everyone else
I have had the same problem...skipping/choppy FMV movies during the game to the point you can't see what's happening in the scene. I've been checking this forum for the past year for the solution to this problem, and i see the exact same problem, and advice posted over and over. These are my results: Changing the compatibility mode has had absolutely no effect, and changing the hardware acceleration in directX has had no effect either (but it's managed to screw up some other programs). Meanwhile, instead of tinkering with our operating systems, i propose we narrow down what the problem is. It could be Windows XP, video, audio, directX version, computer manufacturer, processor speed, or something else. (i really think it's NVidia, but don't know for sure. And if it is, they put these fixes into their driver patches.)
If you are having this SAME PROBLEM where the movie scenes in WC Prophecy skip excessively, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
. Please send your: computer manufacturer's name, video card make and model, windows version, audio card make and model, computer manufacturer, processor speed, and any other info you think may be pertinent.
If you are having a DIFFERENT PROBLEM, please ignore this post and move on with the rest of your life.
I will be more than happy to send you the results of this survey. Within the next couple of days (anonymously).
Thank you for your time.
