Stylized Briefings
« on: April 05, 2019, 01:36:31 PM »
Like Starcraft: Remastered, I'd want to apply the enhanced briefing feature(display this map image during the briefing) to Warcraft II:BNE.

Plan A) When "Human Campaign" button is clicked, In this order,
Act I. The Shores of Lordaeron(background map image and blue colored text) -> I. Hillsbrad(briefing screen) -> in-game ...
II. Tarren Mill ->
III. Southshore ->
IV. Zul'dare ->
Act II. Khaz Modan -> Zepp_M.smk(video) -> V. Tol Barad ->

Can you edit these procedures?
*example
ActI. The Shores of Lordaeron -> custom image 1 ->  custom image 2 -> I. Hillsbrad -> in-game ...



Plan B) Like the shareware version, can you the slide show feature be used in Warcraft 2:BNE?

Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness Demo - Playthrough - Slide Show - YouTube
rez\slidetxt.tbl => Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness takes you to the next level of real-time strategy games as the battle for the kingdoms of Azeroth continue over land, sea, and air. ...
rez\slidedlg.bin => "Continue" and "Cancel" Button UI



In the case of Starcraft, I was able to edit this text file.
(Starcraft)rez\ESTT01X.txt = { </COMMENT Establishing Shot for Terran Level 1x>

It is easy to replace the background image or video. But what I want is to display multiple background images - multiple times.

I don't know any easy ways to do that.
There's no war2 source code for us, so i think we have a problem to make such things...
