Intro movie not playing

Post by RM33 » Sat Oct 30, 2010 11:01 am

When I start the game, I used to get an intro movie where the leaders described their empire.

I got a new computer, and the intro is gone.

What do you think I need to do to get the movie to play again?

I just installed the game from the CD.

I am not aware of the jokers patch.

I realize that this is an old post, but I'm having the same problem.

I'm running Win XP SP2 on an old Alienware Pentium4 rig built in 2004.

The intro movies/cinematics used to play in the past.
I have uninstalled the game since then, and recently decided to play the game again. Once re-installed, the movies do not play.

I tried installing vanila version, patch 1.02, Joker Mod --- same story.

Can anybody offer any suggestions?

This answer was mentioned in a recent thread:

I'm not sure though, the videos never worked for me on Linux.
