 Poll: Ways to play Campaign with movies...

View previous topic View next topic Go down 

What's the better/easier way to play TA:K's Campaigns (The Book of Darien and The Iron Plague) with movies?
Separate two TA:K's for download, one including The Book of Darien campaign, and the other including The Iron Plague one. Then, the players should download TA:K with the campaign that they want to play.

Use TA:K's .img (CD) files. The players will download TA:K .img files, and TA:K The Iron Plague .img files. Then, they will use a program that mount these images, in virtual CD/DVD drivers.

Try to hack the game and make it playable with the 2 campaign working, with no "No CD" errors, and with movies!

PostSubject: Poll: Ways to play Campaign with movies...   Tue Dec 18, 2012 4:36 pm

Hello! First of all, please read this.

I'm not asking it, because I want. I'm asking it because so many people want TA:K's Campaigns fully working, the two, The Book of Darien, and The Iron Plague, and I want to help all of you doing this "TA:K's Campaigns fully working". Calm there... It isn't easy as you think, and here I'm going to explain why.

We can't make TA:K work with the 2 campaigns with movies together, why?
If you have TA:K CD, you should be able to play only The Book of Darien campaign, and if you have TA:K: The Iron Plague CD, you should be able to play only The Iron Plague one. Well, if you explore inside the CD files, you will find the movies of TA:K's correspondent campaign, and, if you look and compare both TA:K's campaign, you should see that the name of some of both campaigns are identical to each other. So, you can't mix the 2 campaigns moving all their files to Kingdoms\Movies directory... If you rename to "This movie is from TA:K:The Iron Plague Campaign.bik", LOL! TA:K won't know that this file is to TA:K:The Iron Plague campaign...

Understand why is it hard to have both campaigns fully working?
So, that's why I am asking to you, what's the better/easier way to play TA:K's campaign...

Explaining better the alternatives that you have in the poll:

1 Alternative: Separate two TA:K's for download one including The Book of Darien campaign, and the other including The Iron Plague one.

This idea was given by landherr, he already have made that, but there are more ways to play TA:K's campaigns and I want to know what's better. ^^'
Well, with this idea, you should download TA:K with the campaign that you want to play. Or, download both and create two folders to TA:K, one with a campaign, and other with other campaign.
More information here: http://kingdoms.heavenforum.org/t764p30-full-game-with-campaign-videos-included#7736 (last post)

2 Alternative: Use TA:K's .img (CD) files. The players will download TA:K .img files, and TA:K The Iron Plague .img files. Then, they will use a program that mount these images, in virtual CD/DVD drivers.

This idea is mine Very Happy! You can use Daemon Tools, or Virtual Clone Driver to mount the images in virtual CD/DVD drivers. To play, just mount TA:K and TA:K:The Iron Plague's .img files and you can play both campaigns in 1 TA:K, or, when you want to play The Book of Darien campaign, you mount TA:K's .img files, when you want to play TA:K:The Iron Plague one, they mount TA:K:The Iron Plague's .img file. Originally from CD. ;D

3 Alternative: Try to hack the game and make it playable with the 2 campaign working, with no "No CD" errors, and with movies!

Yep, you can try to hack the game with some tools... Then, you could make a "NoCD" to TA:K, then, to the movies work, hack TA:K and try to find some file that says something about a path and the name of the movie that will run when you click in a campaign, like so: "When you click in a mission, run the movie C:\Cavedog\Kingdoms\Movies\Campaign.bik" (obviously it won't be written like that...). Well, I don't know, give me your idea... =)


Ok, that's it! Thanks. ;D

Hack the game! Razz
Now seriously, hacking the game is indeed the best solution, however it also couldn't be more impossible if you consider that the only person who has great knowledge on programming is Rammstein.
My most honest solution is the following; download the UTAK Pack, play campaings with the Kingnocd.exe and if you wish to see the movies, go to these YouTube links:

Or download only the movies and drop them on C:\Cavedog\Kingdoms\Movies

Movies of the original campaign:

Movies of the creon campaign:
http://www.mediafire.com/?2eg8vig4rbz250d
http://www.mediafire.com/?2vn4ibp476xw4z7

But remember, like it's been said, just drop the movies of one campaign at a time.

Not really all, if I'm not mistaken it lacks the intro and some other videos for The Book of Darien for issues already mentioned here.



btw this thread is outdated, there is far better stuff at www.alltakdownloads.6te.net
