cinematics - the files in movie.dat[message #305046] Mon, 21 May 2012 17:00

Registered:October 2009
I recently got aware that the movie scenes in the ja2-gold pack release are no longer smacker files but converted to mpeg.

Those files are located in the file movie.dat - which has a TSLib header and after that a directory like table of contents.

It should be easy to implement support for those cinematics with the smpeg library, but I lack the knowledge of that
file format. Can someone give some input on that file? Or maybe knows where to find code to access the data within?

Another approach could be to split that file into single mpegs, and supply a little converter....

I dont have the smacker files, but I read ffmpeg should be able to play those nowadays...

Since this is in no way relevant to gameplay it just would just be nice addition (:
