I don't know if your making this Roq for JO or JA, but for JO it's like this. (I have made a 5 second on before and will try to explain what I did in the simplist way. First open NotePad and copy and paste this INPUT_DIR c:\cool\base\screenshots FILENAME s:\base\video\cool.roq INPUT Shot*.tga [0001-0300] END_INPUT 1. Replace c:\cool\base\screenshots with the path to your .tga's that you took to make the Roq. NOTE: You will have a lot! I had like 150 for a 5 second Roq. 2. Replace cool.roq with the name of your Roq. Obviously mine was named "cool" :rolleyes: 3. Then you see where it says Shot*.tga [0001-0300] Replacce Shot* with the name of your tga's. For mine it was just Shot000, Shoot0001, and so on. 4. Then remove the .txt and make it a .param. With the name of your Roq will go before the .param. EX: Cool.param 5. Then once you have your .param file made just drop it into the roq.exe and it will turn all those tga's into an roq (this will take a while) then the .roq will appear in directory where you commanded it to. If you don't know how to take tga's then go in the console and type in screenshot_tga I think. 6. Then make a shader with the same dimensions as the tga's (should be 256 X 512) and apoint it to a texture and it should work. The whole thing is complicated and not worth doing in my opinion, it can really increase the file size. My 5 second one was over 2mb. :uhm: I don't know how to convert an .avi file to an .roq, I know you can ,but it won't work in the game. I know this because I know someone who has converted an .avi file to an .roq and the dimmensions were all out of wack and it wouldn't work. Yeah that was a little more complicated than I had expected, but I just think that .roq are a waste of time.

Eh? Just use Quake Video Maker. Import your AVI, export to RPQ. Simple.

i had the same problem, was your file converted to avi? plus the version of your codecs can work against you as well, i had to convert my files a few times to avi then to ROQ, i've done it once and was disappointed when i found out the video had no sound in game.

Roq's only have sound if their in the intro, besides that you would have to make a separate func for the sound. Are there even avi's in JO or JA? I didn't think so.

No. You need your video to be in avi format to convert it to ROQ with QVM.

Then you need to tell us more detail. "it didnt work" doesnt help at all.

I remember hearing somewhere that the video size to be a 1:1 ratio, although I'm not entirely sure.


I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.
