Hi just like to say that im having trouble with all the wing commander patche's and high res movies and high res graphics in windows vista no matter if i try to change the compatability to an earlier os
Very nice patch... great work!
Any chance getting something similar working with WC4? I've got the DVD-version off of eBay, but my native language is German (so having the whole thing in German would make it even more immersive). I also have the German 6-disc version, so putting the German audio of the movies into the VOBs won't be a problem. Yet, the rest of the game (of the DVD-version) is still in English, so having a VOB-patch for the CD-version (or a language-file patch for the DVD-version) would be just awesome...
Have trouble running the VOB files in Vista.
I have installed the Enchanment pack copied the VOB files into the MOVIE sub-directory.
When I go into the briefing room, the first file plays. However after the ISIS screen, the briefing does not continue and the game crashes. If I disable the movies I can get to mission no problem.
The game still looks good after all these years.
First of all, many thanks to those who figured out how to do this. It's brilliant to be able to see the cut scenes in DVD resolution. I've only been able to try this today because of the size of the downloads - here in Australia we have download limits which make multi GB downloads painful unless you pay heaps for higher limits!
Anyway, prior to installing the movie patch, I was able to play the game in high resolution using the 3dfx glide wrapper and high res patch. The cut scenes no play in DVD quality, but everything else doesn't display correctly. I'm seeing the top left hand quarter of the display on my screen, so I can't see 3/4 of the game display. It makes the on screen controls unusable and of course the game unplayable.
I don't understand what has been changed in the process of installing the movie patch except to say that the process involves installing the high res patch as well. I suspect that my screen resolution settings for the game have been overwritten. I'll have to try installing the high res patch again. :-7
To make use of the Highres portion of the pack you need to run the patch installer (as well as make sure you have the apropriat *.TRE files in the patch directory).
