I'm having a serious problem with my movie script.
Script: class Scene_Movie

def initialize(movie)

@readini = Win32API.new 'kernel32', 'GetPrivateProfileStringA', %w(p p p p l p), 'l'

@movie_name = Dir.getwd()+"\\Movies\\"+movie+".avi"

main

end



def main



game_name = "\0" * 256

@readini.call('Game','Title','',game_name,255,".\\Game.ini")

game_name.delete!("\0")

@wnd = Win32API.new('user32','FindWindowEx','%w(l,l,p,p)','L')

@temp = @wnd.call(0,0,nil,game_name).to_s

movie = Win32API.new('winmm','mciSendString','%w(p,p,l,l)','V')

movie.call("open \""+@movie_name+"\" alias FILE style 1073741824 parent " + @temp.to_s,0,0,0)

@message = Win32API.new('user32','SendMessage','%w(l,l,l,l)','V')



@detector = Win32API.new('user32','GetSystemMetrics','%w(l)','L')

@width = @detector.call(0)

if @width == 640

fullscreen

Graphics.update

sleep(1)

Graphics.update

sleep(1)

Graphics.update

sleep(1)

end



status = " " * 255

movie.call("play FILE",0,0,0)

loop do

sleep(0.1)

@message.call(@temp.to_i,11,0,0)

Graphics.update

@message.call(@temp.to_i,11,1,0)

Input.update

movie.call("status FILE mode",status,255,0)

true_status = status.unpack("aaaa")

if true_status.to_s != "play"

break

end

if Input.trigger?(Input::B)

Input.update

break

end

end

movie.call("close FILE",0,0,0)

bail

end



def bail

if @width == 640

fullscreen

end

end

end



def fullscreen()



$full.call(18,0,0,0)

$full.call(13,0,0,0)

$full.call(18,0,2,0)

$full.call(13,0,2,0)

end

$full = Win32API.new('user32','keybd_event','%w(l,l,l,l)','')
(I set the event to $scene = Scene_Movie.new("1")) the 1 being the avi file name. The movie folder is located in my projects folder. When it starts the game just freezes, the video is only like 16s.
(This is stalling me please help)

Do you know who wrote the script? Do they still provide support?

Unfortunately win32api is not my forte...at all really.

Is it absolutely necessary you play a movie?

If so hopefully someone here knows win32api and can help you

Well not really for now I threw on what I would call a quick fix but I dont like it. Basically the movie was suppose to be the credits of who helped with the game (sprites,scripts, ect.). So with a movie I could do that fast and simple and it would look really kool. Now its just events with text with the window skin hidden that appears on the top. I thought of using pictures but idk how because I cant draw straight letters and any other program that I know of wont look that good either. Maybe if someone else has another idea that would work I'm open to suggestions. I also just thought maybe its a compatibility issue idk I'll try it in a new project. Also to answer your question I have no idea who wrote or where I got it from it was one of those anonymous things I found lol.
Found an alternative thanks.
