Anyone have a link to the movie that is displayed when entering the game? Talking about the movie on the original Battlefield 1942 :).

Yea I know I can install and just watch it but It would be nice to have it in a playable movie form.

Thanks everyone.

I don't think its anywhere for download, but you can get it yourself. Using RAD video tools you can convert the .bik file to a video format. After you've installed the tools start the program and browse to the movies folder in your Battlefield 1942 directory. I think it will be called Intro.bik, select it and press convert file. Select AVI as the output type. Make sure convert audio and video are both selected. Leave everything at there default settings and it should be fine. Now press Convert. It will now ask you for a compression type. I used DivX and it was a small file. While full frames uncompressed will be a monstrously huge file. Just mess around with it untill you get what you want.

:cya:
