I reconverted all of the Retaliation videos to VQA, this time without dithering. I downloaded Funky's pack for it, edited in the modified files, and created a version for each language out of it.

 

-The Lost Files v3 - English

-The Lost Files v3 - German

-The Lost Files v3 - French

 

I edited the links into the first post :)

 

Honestly not sure how well the exe would work on non-English versions though. I didn't look at the changes or replace it with the French/German v3.03; I just plain copied it. But you shouldn't need it anyway :P

i re-installed the tfd version after i build a new pc and install everything to the old point.

i notice that i don't get the retaliation videos to work, only with the TLF.exe. But if i use the TLF Version, the game swaps to english menus and the sidebar is shrunken down to 4/4 options at the time. The TFL Version shows 303P-iran ecsam version in the menu and the normal 303p-i beta v1

The videos should be accepted by the patched game, as far as I know. The exes in there were never adapted for the other languages, sorry... and it's based on a much older exe that didn't have any of these fancy new features.

@Metaridley

Interesting... maybe it's caused by the german/french language pack, what is your game language? Does it work if you set your game language to english in the config program?

my package is german. i wanted a full german patched version with the retaliation videos. changed to english but nothing is different. the videos only start with the TLF.exe

also i play on 1920x1080p and the TLF.exe don't expand the build sidebar, it's the standart size of 4x4. thats also confusing me

Did you try it with your language set to english in the config program?

Just tested it quick, works fine for me...

I'll test the german ones too now

 

Edit: german ones are working fine too!

 

I just copied the sc-TLFvid.mix into the game folder, then started the launcher and hit Play Offline. This was on a fresh and clean installation.

ok just copied this mix into the folder and is doesn't work.

my installation order:
- installing the entire First Decade collection (installing offical patch 1.01 & 1.02 too)
For RA:

- The Lost Files videos by Nyerguds (PS1 Expansion videos ported to PC)
- RA1installer by FunkyFr3sh (Fan Patch,Bugfixes,better resolution etc.)
- Aftermath music + PS1 music
- German Uncut Cutscenes Normal
- delete aftermath.mix, counterstrike.mix & missions.ini (fix the wrong display of mission descriptions of the add-on missions)
 - inserting my modified rules.ini & aftrmath.ini (for hidden units like supply truck, heli carrier, volkov, don't work in CNCNet and only for skirmish)

It probably happens because you deleted aftermath.mix and counterstrike.mix

These videos can't be used without modified mission files

hm okay.... so i should edit the mixes and add the german mission text in it

you know in which mixes the other language mission descriptions are saved?

I think you only need to modify aftermath.mix, counterstrike.mix

But I can't remember tbh

now i have it, after a lot of search, reinstalling on second pc and so on... here is the complete mission.ini for the german version for all missions from classic ra, cs,am and the ant missions if you need it for your german package, just throw it in the install folder

What exactly is the use of this file though? I just did a fresh installation and all mission briefings are already in german, didn't find any mission that wasn't translated.

when you install the tfd version, you have the expansion missions and ant-mission 2-4 only in english, it's a error from the TFD version.

Make sure you allow it in your anti-virus, otherwise the game could fail to start. Double check its logs to see if it deleted a file and restore it

I am translating this game into Chinese and have completed the original task.
Germanlanguagepack.mix for the Allied mission
Germancensoredlanguagepack.mix for the Soviet mission
Germanuncensoredlanguagepack.mix for skirmish
I hope that I can support several language packs for games, such as chineselanguagepack1, chineselanguagepack2, 3, and 4.

germanlanguagepack.mix

germancensoredlanguagepack.mix

germanuncensoredlanguagepack.mix
