As a stop gap measure, we can just play the movies at 1:1. At the very least, it provides the full campaign content to more users sooner, then if we wait for new movies (especially since we've been "hoping for the originals" for so long).

Oh, we can do that with the current code, it would be a trivial change.
Might have to bring back the FMV options in the options menu, so we would have max (full screen), minimal (1:1), and maybe something else.

BTW, that isn't the holdup for the FMVs. The *planned* release is 2.2, not 2.1, since that is under a 'feature freeze'. I rather jump straight to 2.2, but that is another story. Matter of fact, I will do a poll about it. :|

I mean that the original game ran at 640x480 by default, so the FMVs were meant to be played at that resolution.

Added the option of FS or native for the FMVs now.
