Movies are much easier than scenarios.

True, but that's entirely hypothetical.
After all, to paraphrase the Cheshire cat, while you may make a scenario without movies, what's the use in making movies without a scenario?

How is that hypothetical? Take a look at some of the movies out there. Foreshadows and Echoes: Pawns come to mind as the two best ones.

Fascinating.
Guess I'm not as up on BoE scenarios as I thought I was.
I've been doing alot of other stuff lately, so if it isn't on Alcritas' review page, I probably haven't played it (not to sound pompous or holier than thou...I just mean that the review page is the one I tend to trust most). I saw the Echoes series on TM's site, but I hadn't gotten around to playing it.
I don't think I've ever heard of Foreshadows up until now.

This will take you to the page with my scenarios. Scroll down to find Foreshadows. It serves as a "prequel" to Spears.

it would be very neat if an option to assign an avi or mpg file to an certain sequence

Jeff has said that he won't do that for security reasons and download size, but a large sequence of GIFs should do the trick.

Hello everyone!

Why not, insted of going through the labourous proccess of building a movie in BoA, allow for an animated GIF to be used at the beggining of the game.

Sure the animated GIF could feature Avernum style movements, simulated in a graphics progam by the user!

But the GIF could have Anime or live action scenes, just like any animated GIF! Subtitles would be part of the image, and talented artists could show off their stuff!

Anyways, I'm not exactly sure why nobody has thought of my brilliant idea. Maybe I'm just quick.

--------------------
Leave me alone.

We've suggested animated GIFs before, but Jeff has said no. He said maybe to static images.
