- Playing a video via the PlayBink command in any way appears to stop game time, even if the flags are set to keep ingame noises going.
- The Bink files need to be on your harddisk, they can't be packaged into a BSA File.
- The filename needs to be in quotes.
- The path to the filename is relative to Fallout3\Data\Video\
- If Interruptable is non-zero, the user can interrupt the Bink by hitting the escape key. Otherwise, they have to wait for it to play all the way to the end.
- If Mute Audio is set to zero, the game's world sounds will continue to play during the Bink movie, otherwise they will be muted.
- If Pause Music is set to zero, the game's music will continue to play while the movie is running, otherwise it will be paused.
- If Letterboxed is set to zero, the bink will not be letterboxed if it is widescreen and is showing on a 4:3 screen.
