In layman's terms: no one asked :3 and if you are seeking for the soundtrack to listen to, you can easily find the soundtrack on TR Fan sites ^W^
Because I've played this beta before and I don't think it's necessary to add this in to the final build of this game because all what you'll basically hear is 1. The soundtrack 2. You won't be able to hear any voice lines recorded with what they're saying. Which is why I think it'll be boring for me to watch these scenes in the retail game like that in my opinion.

You clearly didn't read the "The psx videos have no audio. I've extracted the audio from the PC FMVs and mixed them with the psx videos." part.

Go be your usual self in other threads. Not here.

UroshUchiha. I'm voicing my opinion saying that it's not worth of me using them in the retail version of this game because it's my prerogative for me not to use them. That's why I don't care about using them. That's all what I'm saying.

I don't have the energy to deal with "Expert," so I just wanted to say thank you to UroshUchiha and a few others for standing up to the self-entitled narcissist


An update:

But on PC:

"I'm presuming by the lack of communication that you're at Industries' building"

I truly wonder... why?
This would explains the discrepancy for fmv7. I've mixed the retail psx soundtrack with beta fmv7, and it turns out to be a perfect sync! Thus 2 seconds of Zip won't need removing. I've also mixed all the other beta movies with retail psx soundtracks for consistency.

Due to the TR5 engine limitations - the fmv7 cutscene cuts off early, so you'll see Lara enter the chute but you won't see her sliding inside and the subsequent fade-out to black.

Wow thatís amazing; I had no idea about Zipís dialogue being cut in the PC FMV. Did you add the new version to the download ATombRaiderFan?

@.snake. Thank you!

Yup all videos on the shared google folder is replaced with the newest ones, sorry I should've been clearer about that in my previous reply.

I just tested them now and they work beautifully! I love the inclusion of Jean Yves, even if the difference in voice is a bit jarring (although I think it's still the same voice actor?). I also love that as a life-long PC gamer I finally have the proper VCI intro FMV without Zip's line being messed up. Thank you very much for creating this ATombRaiderFan.

Off topic: But what is it about the terrible lip syncing in the TR5 FMVs? I was reminded of it when watching Lara's conversation with Larsen and Pierre in the Opera - it's so alarmingly bad. It wasn't perfect in TR4 or any of the previous games, but there is just something so off about the way their mouths move in TR5.

I wonder if it has something to do with the TR5 FMVs being created out of house by a French studio (Ex-Machina) - do the character's mouths match better when watching the FMVs in French?

(The terrible lip sync doesn't have anything to do with your FMVs ATombRaiderFan. It's the same in the original versions.)

Thank you .snake.! I've spent a lot of time tracking down the right tools, and learning how to use them, and testing the movies thoroughly ingame. So reading your feedback and knowing this project made at least one other fellow fan happy is good enough for me, that's why you've made my day

The inclusion of Jean-Yves is the main reason for this project so I'm glad you approve too. I've always wanted to be able to use movies with Jean-Yves as Core originally intended, and it's also nice to see a familiar face too. The restored VCI dialogue wasn't even planned at all and feels to me like one of Troye's fixes!

Of course, constructive criticism is welcome because if there's room for improvement - I'm all for it. Sadly I don't think the opera cutscene can be improved. I've experimented with offsetting the audio relative to video by 1 second, 500ms, 100ms, but none of these seemed to improve the audio/video sync, so it's as good as it gets imo. (I agree with you on the terrible lip sync)

Anyway, thank you again .snake. for testing the videos because that gives me confidence in this project

New versions with subtitles are now available. I've made these largely with help from Stella's transcript, although with a few corrections. Character names are added when it's not obvious who's speaking onscreen.

Grab the videos here, and enjoy



Just to clarify that the other videos without subtitles are still available to download from the op of this thread, there's been no update for these.

Edit: Both sets of videos moved to archive.org.
