What "minimization" are you talking about? Compression of movies?

After discoveries of all tree of technology it is possible to increase a scientific level on directions. I, II, III etc. In particular, the data of analysis allow to reduce of weight of arms. Therefore I have written "minimization". There can be it not absolutely correctly on English.
When there is an analysis of technology, there is a video. Really it not the video file, it is format of the frames picture MoO2. For minimization in the game LBX too is such "video", but it not used in the game.

If you're asking for a small movie to be played each time you discover a technology, I think you should MAKE the movies yourself and then see if anyone can find a way to put them in, and if they can't, then whenever you discover a tech, just ALT-TAB and go to the folder you've put the movies in and play the appropriate one, then when it's done, ALT-TAB back into the game. A kludge, but it'll work.
Why do they get to attack me without war being declared, but I can't do the same?

You wouldn't have believed me, but I have already made this video. Game's developers liked it and they have included it in the official game's version (twelve years ago). ))

If serious; you know how to count? The game has 203 technologies, but exists 213 "Tanm_xxx.lbx" files. Files from 204 to 213 is a necessary video. You can open them in the hex-editor and will make sure of it. If it is difficult for you, you can use my program "LBX Editor".

For activation this files on the game, need to change the function "Science_Room_", unit "SCIENCE":

Code: Select all

cseg01:0010D354 loc_10D354:                             ; CODE XREF: SCIENCE_Science_Room_+6Cj
cseg01:0010D354                 movzx   ebx, dx
cseg01:0010D357                 lea     eax, [ebx+ebx]
cseg01:0010D35A                 add     eax, [ebp+var_21A]
cseg01:0010D360                 mov     ax, [eax]
cseg01:0010D363                 and     ah, 1
cseg01:0010D366                 movzx   eax, ax
cseg01:0010D369                 push    eax
cseg01:0010D36A                 shl     ebx, 6
cseg01:0010D36D                 lea     eax, [ebp+var_10E]
cseg01:0010D373                 push    offset SCIENCE__tech_item_anim_fmt ; "TANM_%03hi.LBX"
cseg01:0010D378                 add     eax, ebx
cseg01:0010D37A                 push    eax
cseg01:0010D37B                 inc     edx
cseg01:0010D37C                 call    sprintf_sprintf_
cseg01:0010D381                 add     esp, 0Ch
cseg01:0010D384
cseg01:0010D384 loc_10D384:                             ; CODE XREF: SCIENCE_Science_Room_+36j
cseg01:0010D384                 cmp     dx, word ptr [ebp+arg_62]
cseg01:0010D388                 jb      short loc_10D354

...

cseg01:0010D384 - meat-and-potatoes.

Probably, you should abstain from flat joke, if your skill to speak is more, than your skill to think.
