Thanks you very much  :wink:
Project Norg is good because FMV are in 16:9 BUT yours have less pixel and the speed of them are FLUID :)

What's the difference between this and others FMV Replacement Pack?

I mean, i can see the difference and i think this is the best, but i would like to know how you worked on it (the main post doesn't specify the improvements of this replacement pack).
 
Anyway these videos are supposed to be 30 fps?, because when i reproduce the intro "disc00_30h" my videoplayer says "15 FPS".

The main download pack is not yet converted into 30fps since there's still a bug in the game that will make the game weird when the fmv is in 30fps. We can convert the video into 30fps even 60fps, there will be some very small improvement but it will be quite hard to match it with the 15fps gameplay without some tweaking.

I dont know what he did to the videos but I think this is the best version compared to Project NORG. Great colors and less pixelated.
Also Project NORG used videos from the old 2000 game file while zwuw use the steam version video files.

Could be a good idea to convert only the "movie" cutscenes to 30 fps, leaving the gameplay scenes to 15 fps.

It's possible to change video framerate by editing the .cam files but character animations still need to be fixed. I don't have too much info on .cam files but if anyone needs it leave a message.

Any hopes to make this mod compatible with the new "Remastered" edition. I tried to import one FMV and I got a "no header found" error message upon running the game at the point where the FMV should have been played...

If you convert the files to webm format, they might work from what I understand.

I had a look at this a while ago.

The remaster seems to require an mkv header. If you run the files through mkvtoolnix it can correct it.

However you then get an error because the remaster also requires vorbis audio. So you would need to re-encode the pcm audio.

Also I found that you can run into memory issues if you pack too much into other.zzz. The 4gb patch didn't work.

Thank you, that explains the issues I was having, then I guess I will leave the FMVs alone for now...
