GM4MAC AVI's don't work?
Posted 13 March 2012 - 04:57 PM
1. Company Logo
2. Game Menu
4. Level 1
But the AVI's don't seem to work at all.
Is there somewhere I can see a detailed step by step guide on how to do this via D&D or GML?

What you could also do is contact "ugriffin" to fix his download links to GMac Terminal found here: http://gmc.yoyogames...howtopic=492014 and then use the following code to QuickLook the video:
qlmanage -p [file path plus video goes here without brackets] >& /dev/null &
Or, maybe you could rearrange the order in which you want the video played, and create a shell script that opens QuickLook to view the video, sleeps the video length of seconds, and then opens the game app.
However, the video may not play automatically, and I have no idea if you could create a shell script to run multiple commands in order to quit the Terminal at the end. So, until the links are fixed, I can only speculate as to if this will work. And, I wish someone else would comment on this thread because I posted a thread about this a while back, but all I got was a comment as to "it's probably a bug" rather than something useful like (though still appreciated): "I can't get it to work either." Apparently no one using GM4Mac has actually tried to play a splash video except you and I.
If you do decide to get ahold of "ugriffin" and the link is fixed, could you please post the link here too...
...I really doubt YoYo will fix this bug.
If you do use the large sprite idea, you should probably try to load an animated gif image externally to save space and loading time, or just use a couple of small animated sprites and a couple of backgrounds. I don't really know anything about your game idea, whether it's 2d or 3d...just saying.
