System Description

This is a cinematic system for GUI users who would like to create a precise timing cinematic. Even though it might be a lot of works even for a simple actions, but it was soo far the best option in creating a precise timing cinematic via GUI. After all, what can you expect from GUI?

For full information, please read the documentation. There is a documentation that contain a very important info and all necessary information about this system. There is no way to get a ingame screenshot of it since it was a cinematic system. So I have to use icon of the forums cinematic section for it.

everything is explained so it's easy to use it :)
i've been wondering if its possible to make a movie instead of normal map :)
for example "Romeo and Juliet" or any other based-on-book cinematic ^^

as always Septimus showed us that his GUI scripting is perfect ^_^

I think this is far more easier to understand and apply.

That cinematic was created by using countdown timer, this are using real variable.

I try to make a comparison between countdown timer and real variable, the real variable are far easier to manage compare to countdown timer.

Also, countdown timer have 1 weakness, it cannot repeat the same scene while real variable could do it.
