Default TRNG: Trigger an FMV

Thread has been reopened for editing purposes.
Plese do not post in this thread.

Use the editor that comes with TRNG Its the only one that has the FMV trigger

I've seen afew threads now, asking how to trigger an FMV. Like...A video.
This tutorial will show you how...

A video in .avi, .wmv, OR .mpg format.
NG Scripter
And excitement .

Ok first off you have your video which is in avi or wmv format so copy it into your TRLE folder. You can create a new folder if you want title it fmvs or store. Since you don't want to clutter your TRLE folder.
Right click on the video you copied into the folder and click on RENAME.
Call it FMV1.

Now you have your video in there but How to trigger it?
Well go into your NGLE and select the square you want the FMV to start. (if you want the video to play right as you click new game trigger it under LARA) Set your trigger box like this:

Now if you go into the game and step on that trigger it wont play so go into NG Center now.
You should see (at the top) a section like this:

; Platform Definitions

Level= .PSX
Cut= .CUT

Level= .TR4
Cut= .TR4
Change the FMV line in the [PCExtensions] so it looks like this:
OR if your using an AVI file it should look like this:
Now add this line to your level section of the script.

Name= Playable Tutorial Level
FMV= 1,1
Legend= The year 2000, somewhere in Egypt...
Horizon= ENABLED
Layer1= 160,160,192,7
PuzzleCombo= 3,1,Cartouche Piece 1, $0000,$0400,$0000,$0000,$0000,$0002
PuzzleCombo= 3,2,Cartouche Piece 2, $0000,$0400,$0000,$0000,$0000,$0002
Puzzle= 3,Ba Cartouche, $0000,$0400,$0000,$0000,$0000,$0002
Puzzle= 5,Eye Of Horus, $0017,$0500,$0000,$0000,$0000,$0002
PuzzleCombo= 5,1,Eye Piece, $0017,$0500,$0000,$0000,$0000,$0002
PuzzleCombo= 5,2,Eye Piece, $0017,$0500,$0000,$0000,$0000,$0002
Puzzle= 6,The Hand Of Orion, $0000,$0400,$8000,$c000,$0000,$0002
Puzzle= 8,The Hand Of Sirius, $0000,$0400,$8000,$c000,$0000,$0002
LoadCamera= 0,0,0,0,0,0,255
LoadCamera= 11088,-1100,28896,11119,-1399,31486,0
Level= DATA\TUT1,107
Add the bold part.

on the second number 1...
That means you can hit ESC to stop the FMV. If you dont want that put 0 there.

The first number (1) is the number of the FMV.

Hope this helps.
I want to thank Matie for teaching me this. You rock!
Pull the lever kronk!
