Queeg's popular Heart Of The Tiger Movie Project used selected video scenes and actual gameplay footage to deliver the complete experience in one neat package. Encouraged by the viewer response, Queeg has come up with a new and improved cut. The standard and extended editions follow the same script, but one runs an extra thirty minutes.
- Far better video quality (99% of FMV is captured from the PSX game)
- Better video quality with ingame missions also
- All missions reshot and made to be far more interesting and shorter
- Storyline closer to the book, different scenes used in places
Extended edition (2 hours 13 minutes, 850 megs)
- Direct Download
Standard edition (1 hour 39 minutes, 680 megs)
- Direct download
Queeg's friend is providing the bandwidth for the standard version. Visitors that are technically inclined can use the BitTorrent system instead of the direct download. You need either the XviD codec or the VLC movie player to watch these. We recommend a download manager like GetRight to reliably download something this size, even if you are on broadband.
