Latest Update Breaks Backwards Compatibility

If your module has an opening and/or closing movie they no longer work. NwN now needs these to be in webm format with a file extension of wbm.

Will you raise a bug report for this?

Are you testing with the broken update from yesterday, that you fixed with a manual download and install of OpenAL? If so then I'd hesitate before treating that as an actual bug.

It's not a bug. NwN EE movies now need to be in webm format. You need to convert your bik files in order for them to work with NwN EE. The settings for the conversion are video size: original, video codec: vp8 and audio codec: vorbis. I have converted the movies for A is for adventure and made them a specific to EE download.

This seems like a bug to me - surely EE should be able to support mods that were written pre-EE. Are they aware that this change has resulted in pre-EE mods not working as intended?

They are aware but it's a matter of licenses (see here December 15th posts). My guess is that the cost of a license for bink is mega expensive these days.

Thanks for the explanation and link to a converter. I may look at building this into version 5.0 of my Installer Tool if there are no license issues for doing that.

You may want to have a quick look at my trials and tribulations as well and the tool I used in the end. Batch files do seem a good idea here though.

Thanks again. In terms of NIT, I will probably go for ffmpeg so the conversions can be done in a hidden batch window using a simple tool that does not need a specific installation.

I will defer this function until all the other chnages have been made (there are lot of significant changes required). Who knows, with some luck, maybe they will license the bic format by the time I get to the conversion :)
