Help installing Video Sequences please.

Postby Jacko » 14 Nov 2010, 19:46

Hi there folks,

I just downloaded and installed the latest version of Warzone 2100 (2.3.5) and selected the video tick box at the install screen. During the install it failed to download and install the videos so I downloaded the standard quality videos from the website myself. I followed the "Video instructions" on the Download page which reads: "Video instructions: Place sequences.wz in Program Files/Warzone 2100/sequences.wz" I even created the folder "sequences.wz" but when I ran the game no videos?!! All I get is a screen telling me that the "Videos are missing. Download them at WZ2100.net"

Should I have them installed in Program Files eg - "C:\Program Files\Warzone 2100\sequences.wz" where "sequences.wz" is the newly created folder or should it be in My Documents eg "C:\Documents and Settings\MyName\My Documents\Warzone 2100 2.3\sequences.wz" again with "sequences.wz" as a newly created folder.

Can someone give me the correct path to follow and I'll have another go.

I'm still using XP if that's any help.

All the best and thanks in advance :-)

sequences.wz is the file name, not folder name.
So assuming you installed the game to c:\..\Program Files/Warzone 2100/ then you would copy sequences.wz to your c:\..\Program Files/Warzone 2100/ folder, then it should work.
and it ends here.

Excellent stuff Buginator, it works perfectly now! XD

I just assumed it would have to go in its own folder. :oops:

Once again many thanks for your help :)

Fixed that for you.

Edit: Downloading from the installer should work in the next version, currently it uses a dead mirror...
