Video Texture Support

This hack must be required by a mod to be enabled.

This hack allows you to use Bink video files as textures.

Requiring This Hack

To require this hack, add this line to your mod's Meta.ini:

RequiredHack=VideoTextureSupport

Using This Hack

Bink video files intended for use with this hack have the same restrictions that normal textures do. They must be powers of 2 on the width and height (32x32, 64x128, 256x512, etc.).

To add a video texture to your P3D file using Lucas' Pure3D Editor, you just need to modify the "Texture" parameter of a Shader. The value has to be a path starting with a / inside the Mod Launcher's file system.

It is recommended that you use /GameData/ though other paths in the Virtual File System will also work.

If the movie has transparency, it's also important to set the "Blend Mode" to "Alpha". Other Blend Modes are also supported.

Debug Text Mode

This hack registers a debug mode when used alongside Debug Text.
