Mission Intro Video

Recommended Posts

Hello Guys.

I 've created a mission with an intro video for it. No problem i set up the init.sqf with " []execVM"Video\VideoForIntro.sqf";" and of course a folder for the "VideoForIntro.ogv".  It played fine when i started the mission.


My problems are: First one, i couldn't  create a button for skipping this intro video. The second one is that during the intro exhibition i can access my player, 'though i can't see it, if i hit the "I" key (inventory) i can see my inventory.
I can`t think of a way to stop this from happening.


I found some hints for the first problem, but i'm probably doing sth wrong because i couldn't make them work.

For the second problem, i have to confess that i just don't have the slightest idea where i should start from.

Thanks for the help.

Best solution I can think of is enableSimulation (https://community.bistudio.com/wiki/enableSimulation). Just disable simulation for players while the video is playing and then re-enable it once the video ends. Another solution could be disableUserInput. While it'd get the job done I would advise against it, as it disables all input, so you would run into issues with any solutions to your first problem.
