[1.7.2] How to implement cutscenes.


Recommended Posts

Well Minecraft is just Java so anything you can do with video in Java you can potentially do. However, based on other discussions on the topic it seems it can be pretty difficult actually.


Instead of video, I suggest you can easily do more of a slideshow.  It is easy to create a GUI that pauses the game play and takes up the whole screen, displaying images of your choice.  Not sure if that works for you, but a slideshow story is simple and would probably still be pretty cool.


Another option is that you can fairly easily use Java to bring up an browser window, so you could have the cutscene on Youtube and then have that pop up in a new window.  I know that isn't perfect, but again is simple and would get the job done.  (Some people might not like having window pop up, so you might have to have option in your GUi where they click OK button to launch window, with option not to).


Those were the best two solutions I've found to providing a story-like element to Minecraft.
