TFTD actually has two kinds of cutscenes: The FMV kind which is of course fully animated 3D CGI scenes (that's obviously outdated by today), and the text kind that's just a slideshow of the aforementioned 3D CGI scenes but with captions that actually give some context to said scenes.  My question is: How will OpenXcom determine which kind of cutscene to play when running TFTD?

Because the game was distribuited either on CD-ROM and floppy. The former features a filmed intro. In the 90' cd roms began to appear, just for info, but hopefully you all already know that  :-X

How can I do this? As far as I know there is no way of adding separate audio playback in the cutscene rulesets....
I think you can specify a "music" track, but I'll investigate.

It'll use whichever is available. If both are available, then an option decides the preferred format.

Code: [Select]

From what I've seen in the wiki and the code itself, you can't unless it's for slideshows. Animated cutscenes only need you to specify a video file.

Adding that feature would solve the audio problem, but not the playback speed feature.
