Thumbs down Movie Window (VLC)

I decided to dust off something i was working on back in beta.

its a video overlay window that you can pop open, to see movies played in VLC while in game.

the files are attacked.

to get this to work. add it to any UI you are useing.

in the index.xml file add the below text before where it says </XML>
Code:
<GameplayWindows directory="Xml">
             <Window filename="MovieWnd.xml"/>
</GameplayWindows>
Then edit the SkinInfo.xml and add the text below just before
</SkinInfo>
</XML>
Code:
    <AnimationDefinitions directory="Textures">
            <AnimationDefinition filename="VideoOverlay.xml"/>
    </AnimationDefinitions>
see screen shot below.


This is set up so you can just dump it into any custom UI.

Not a bad idea, but will take up alot of performance. Does it only work with VLC? Does it create an in-game button to launch it? Can you take this idea and instead of a Movie Window make it a Browser Window like in EQ2?

its only been tested wtih VLC.
really all it does is pop up a window with the correct color background for the video overlay in VLC to work.

I mostly did it so i could watch stuff while crafting.

the browser window in EQ2 is an entire IE browser control, backend with the gui being attached through the games UI. There is no such control in VG. only the patcher has this feature.


You don't actually launch anything from inside the game either. Like i said its just a window that you can toggle visible. you have to position and size VLC window then alt tab back into VG and position and size the movie window to be over VLC so the image shows through.

Did not even think about doing it while crafting, good idea, just to give you something to do.
Does any of the UI in VG give you access to the internet? Wonder if there is a way to bring up a scaled down version of a browser.

There are currently no controls in the XML Schema that Vanguard uses that would allow a player to access anything over the internet. The only part of your whole installation that does that is the patcher before you actually play the game.

For you to be able to access the internet through the game would require the Dev team to build that into the game, and personally, I would prefer they work on the game, and not a browser to put in the game.

P.S. Nice Naruto Shippuuden screen there :P

Fixing to test it now.

Also is there a way to use the Mozilla browser in VG right now?(C:\Program Files\Sony\Vanguard\bin\mozilla) I know the Devs said it would be for petitions and such but has anyone came up with a way to use it for other than petitions?
