The noble Atreides, the insidious Ordos and the evil Harkonnen. Only one house will prevail.... This forum is for the discussion of Intelligent Games' C&C inspired recreation of Westwood Studios' Dune 2.
Remember the original Command & Conquer? Remember all the units, characters and themes from the game? Remember the gritty feeling of RTS Warfare? Remember Tiberium? Well, that classic game from the early 90's that spawned over a dozen titles and revolutionized the RTS Gaming World has been reincarnated in the advanced 3D World of the C&C Generals Zero Hour SAGE 3D Game engine!
Hello there. I've been working with Tiberian Sun for the past couple of months, and I could help you out with that if you'd like. The movies are located in three .mix files, movies01.mix contains the GDI cutscenes, movies02.mix contains the Nod ones, and movies03.mix contains both the GDI and Nod cutscenes for the Firestorm expansion.
Replacing these is fairly simple if you've already got the official translation installed somewhere. Make sure that the German version has all the same .mix files and replace the English ones with those. It should work now. Yet, you're saying that you've done that, and the movies are still in English. Here are some possibilities as to why it didn't work:
1) It could be that the cutscenes in the German version were packed in a different way. As to how or why, I wouldn't be able to tell you. The solution would be to unpack the movies with the help of XCC Mixer, then replace the English ones in the corresponding .mix archives using the XCC Mix editor.
2) The German version you've got has these movies in English. Which... wouldn't make too much sense, but there are so many versions of Tiberian Sun floating around that I can't disregard this possibility. Make sure that the movies you're trying to get to work are really in German first.
You also might want to replace these files, too: sidecd01.mix and sidecd02.mix. Those contain EVA and CABAL briefings which are read aloud in the Tiberian Sun singleplayer campaign during the mission select screen ("The Nod forces that attacked our Pheonix base are in this sector..." / "Hassan communicates to the Brotherhood through a nearby TV station...", etc).
