The Cutscenes and In-Game UI Release build is now available: theforceengine.github.io/downloads.html
This video marks the version 0.8 - Cutscenes and In-Game UI Release. The cutscenes are now played, even from mods, with sounds and music. The Mission Briefings are integrated, including the ability to pick the desired difficulty. In game, the PDA (F1) is complete, allowing you to see your inventory, weapons, the map, mission objectives that you have completed and secrets found, and the briefing. Finally, the "Configuration" option in the Escape menu now opens the TFE System UI with full resolution and keybinding menus.
This video shows the initial cutscenes, the mission briefings for a few levels, config options, cutscenes in a mod, and the mission briefing in another mod. Note: iMuse is only partially reverse-engineered, so music in the cutscenes is not 100% accurate - this will be fixed in the 0.9 release coming in the next few weeks.
Next is the sound and iMuse release, version 0.9, at which point Dark Forces support in TFE will be feature complete. However, there are still some bugs and mistakes, which will the focus for version 1.0.
