Phase Shift v1.27 video background help?

Postby HizzingCreeper » Sun Mar 27, 2016 3:31 pm

I want to make a custom song based off DM Ashura's song DeltaMAX and I want the background of that song playing. The only problem is I can't get it to work and this is the setting I set in song.ini

Spoiler:[song]
artist = DM Ashura
name = DeltaMAX
delay = 2330
loading_phrase = How fast can you go?
video = C:\Program files (x86)\Phase Shift\music\DM Ashura - DeltaMAX\background.avi
diff_bass = -1
diff_guitar_coop = -1
diff_drums = -1
diff_vocals = -1
diff_keys = -1
diff_bass_real = -1
diff_guitar_real = -1
diff_dance = -1
diff_bass_real_22 = -1
diff_guitar_real_22 = -1
diff_drums_real_ps = -1
diff_drums_real = -1
diff_vocals_harm = -1
multiplier_note = 116
song_length = 128327
last_play = 2016-03-27-15:23:59
year =
album =
genre =
kit_type = 1
keys_type = 1
guitar_type = 1
bass_type = 1
dance_type = 1
diff_band = 0
diff_guitar = 0
diff_keys_real = 0
diff_keys_real_ps = 0
charter =
background =
video_loop = 0
eighthnote_hopo = 0
rating = 0
count = 0
video_start_time = 0
video_end_time = 0
preview_start_time = -1
real_keys_lane_count_right = 18
real_keys_lane_count_left = 18
real_guitar_tuning = 0 0 0 0 0 0
real_bass_tuning = 0 0 0 0 0 0
diff_rhythm = -1


And this is the folder I put the video file in (And yes it is a .avi file).
https://gyazo.com/aa9cfbcba841f434559fccdc116a4474
If anyone can help me that would be great and, if i need more information I will add more in. I could now but, I can't think of anything else.
Thank you for taking your time into reading this.

the video background goes in the same folder the song is(guitarogg/notes.mid...etc), unless of course you want it in every song then find the file default.avi and place it there. Also you cannot have a space in the filename.

my bad, after a final peek at your ini file, you dont need the path. just the name.

Ok but, that's the normal way to do it. I tried that and it didn't work. this is my new song.ini file

Spoiler:[song]
artist = DM Ashura
name = DeltaMAX
delay = 2330
loading_phrase = How fast can you go?
diff_bass = -1
diff_guitar_coop = -1
diff_rhythm = -1
diff_drums = -1
diff_vocals = -1
diff_keys = -1
diff_bass_real = -1
diff_guitar_real = -1
diff_dance = -1
diff_bass_real_22 = -1
diff_guitar_real_22 = -1
diff_drums_real_ps = -1
diff_drums_real = -1
diff_vocals_harm = -1
multiplier_note = 116
video = background.avi
song_length = 128327
last_play = 2016-03-27-18:50:22


And I guess here is my settings for Phase Shift

Spoiler:MUSICPATH = "C:\Program Files (x86)\Phase Shift\music\"
XRESWINDOWED = "1920"
YRESWINDOWED = "1080"
WINDOWEDASPECTRATIO = "2"
XRESFULLSCREEN = "1920"
YRESFULLSCREEN = "1080"
FULLSCREENASPECTRATIO = "0"
MULTIDISPLAY = "1"
AUDIOCALIBRATION = "45"
VIDEOCALIBRATION = "0"
DISPLAYADAPTOR = "0"
BACKGROUND = "3"
FORCESTATE = "0"
ANTIALIASING = "2"
STAGEDETAIL = "3"
VSYNC = "FALSE"
TEXTUREFILTERING = "TRUE"
TRIPLEBUFFER = "TRUE"
WINDOWED = "TRUE"
SPECULARHIGHLIGHTS = "TRUE"
DEBUGMODE = "FALSE"
DRUNK = "FALSE"
HITACCURACY = "TRUE"
DRAWFPS = "FALSE"
NOFAILMODE = "1"
DEFAULTPROFILE = "profiles\Guest.dat"
KEYBOARDDRUMLANECOUNT = "4"

Make sure to set your background to video and song video override to enabled in your options (if you haven't done that yet, can't really tell from your config file)

Now the background is black. This is kinda getting ridiculous. Is the video resolution to high? The video file was from a youtube video. I used a youtube to avi convertor to get my .avi file.

NVM. I finally got it to work after using another converter and making sure the resolution was 360p. So, can someone please lock this post. Thank you.

I'm trying the same thing, but not for a song. I'm trying to put a .avi file in for the actual video background for the game but it's not working. It's just showing up as a black screen.
