DMJC kindly pointed out that his fellow Wing Commander modders created a Decompressor for the Privateer 2 - TGV Videos, that should work for Dark Omen Movies. We already have other players but hopefully one day the following code could be reversed to encode videos, so we can add new movies into Dark Omen.

<DMJC> I've seen it done for other games, like Wing Commander Prophecy
<DMJC> Mario "HCL" Brito might be worth contacting
<DMJC> hcl.solsector.net
<DMJC> he's done tons of hex/code injection game editing
<Olly> cool
<DMJC> the movie player he wrote actually plays dark omen videos. Turns out they're identical to Privateer 2: The Darkening's format
<DMJC> mplayer/ffmpeg can also decode them
<Olly> can anything encode them so i can have new custom vids for DO? as we have lots of movie players ( i think the need for speed ones play them as well)
<DMJC> do you want DO to play the same format, or would you rather it play a better quality format?
<DMJC> he's hacked Wing Commander Prophecy to play DVD VOB files that were developer-only
<DMJC> might be possible to do the same to Dark Omen
<Olly> i see would be cool
<DMJC> http://hcl.solsector.net/information/video_p2.cpp video decompression code for Dark Omen
<DMJC> I think if you reverse the code
<DMJC> it'll encode Dark Omen format videos
<Olly> would be great
