Own Video Messages for your Szenario.

Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm Teutonen Ritter from SH Heaven!

 

Sorry fo my bad English!

 

 

You like the LOTR Mod for Stronghold, but you can't make own Messages for your Szenario? No Problem, make own Scenarios with Messages and more. Time for fantasy in your mind.

 

Own Messages in Stronghold.

 

Step 1.

What for a Message will you have for the Mission? Search in Stronghold folders the files that you must have.

Example:

 

messageshpivsr63zt.png

 

I will a other messages as in the picture. I search in the Firefly Studios\Stronghold\binks with the Tool Bink Video this video.

 

So and the result is: Stronghold\binks\ap_civil9.bik and Stronghold\fx\speech\ ap_civil_01.wav and not to forget: General_Message3.wav.

 

Step 2.

Make your own Bink Video with Rad Game Tools. A typical Stronghold Video have the Width 128 and the Height 128. Scaling your video of this mass. Make a new .wave file and then to the last step, the subtitle. Recommended is a video without Sound.

Step 3.

Open the mfg. file with a Hexeditor, because here are the subtitles. Give the subtitle text in this format in the ground of the file.

Search the Text in hexadecimal.

When you have the text, you must edit the Text in this Format whit the Hexeditor, and the text must have not more Letters, as in the original. A letter more as the original, and you cannot more view the Story from the Castles in game and not view the subtitles from the messages. Sorry, this is so.

Also the program linked to does not work, it says that a dll file is missing from my computer. Does the second and third parts work with steam versions of the game?

 

Unfortunately though, since your username is not Teutonen Ritter, the option is not available as the account does not exist.

    • Modding with my own image that I want to use

      Lord Chris, ? I'm sorry I posted this twice, and didn't realized I made a mistake. So I just want to retype it. I hope you disregard the last 2 posts. Can I mod with any image that I want to use for stronghold 2? I want to know what to do step by step how to make the armor shine through or make the black come through. I want to know how to save it correctly. When I use the alpha channels nothing seems to work.

    • What are your favourite games?

      As the title says! What are your favourite games of all time? Whether it's down to the game mechanics, the concept, or the story! Let me know, and why! I should add, this is excluding any games from the Stronghold franchise :P     For me, it's a difficult decision between SWAT 4 and the Titanfall 2 campaign. I love those games. SWAT 4 has such a charm to it for its age, and the game mechanics are so clever and unique, I can't get enough of it! As for Titanfall 2, the story is amazing.

      Hey guys, check out this video. https://youtu.be/560UuJstw6k   Several days ago we were discussing about the engine they used to use for Stronghold 2. After 4:15 they even say few things about the engine. Apparently it they picked some engine, and they made a lot of changes into it. I thought you might find this video interesting cause we were mentioning the engine recently.

    • Your opinion of rats, gong, and criminals in Stronghold 2?

      I am making this thread for you to tell us what is your opinion about those three stuff. Some of us don't like it, some of us do, and those of us who don't like it - they may avoid to play the whole game because of that fact. I am one of those who didn't like it much, and who wanted Stronghold 2 to be at least a little bit more simplified, but now I do like it! I believe one can easily build falconers post and gong pit to solve the issue with gong, which is a quite natural problem in a medieval
