Campaign newsreels

Post by Moggy » Wed Feb 11, 2004 1:48 am

I've downloaded a number of newsreel items from the Pathe site, whcih when converted into .smk format we can hopefully use as campaign newsreels. I think I understand right that we now understand the relevant code in the campaign files which triggers the playing of the newsreels.

So far I have items relating to Truk, Saipan, Guam, Leyte Gulf and Luzon. They are currently in .wmv format. I'll place them in the file repository ASAP so that everyone can get a look at them.

I have now uploaded the first swathe of newsreel videos to the file repository - in the "video" folder. For any of sensitive disposition (does that include anyone here? :lol: ) I should note that these are contemporary Pathe newsreels, and the commentators do not know much about PC.

I've uploaded the remainder of the newsreels - so we have material on Truk, Saipan, Guam, Palau, Leyte Gulf, and quite a bit on the various Phillippine actions.
