How can I insert a movie file into my game?
« on: 08 Jun 2018, 08:23 »
Hi everyone.

I have a question about animated cutscenes.
I have created a few simple in game cutscenes using "Walk" and "Wait" and "FaceDirection" etc... Really basic stuff.
Now I'm thinking about trying to insert a movie file into the start of my game as an introduction. I was wondering if this is achievable?
For example, Toonstruck and Zork Grand Inquisitor both had movie file types playing at the start of, and in between, the game.
I guess I am wondering... How would I go about ensuring that the player views a movie cutscene. perhaps in the form of an .avi file?

Many thanks in advance for your assistance.

Did you check the Scripting -> Multimedia section of the manual? http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/manual/ags67.htm#PlayVideo
