Customize the Halo 2 Demo Videos

Use this hack to play your own videos as the Halo 2 demo.

Altering the Halo 2 splash screen is cool, but adding your own demos to the game is even better. Creating a custom Halo 2 video involves replacing the files in the bink directory. In this example, I will replace the video used in Halo 2’s attract mode.

To work with the BIK file format, you can use an application developed by Rad Game Tools. To download the program, visit http://www.radgametools.com/bnkdown.htm.

First, record your personal demo using your own capture technique. Once you have the video, open it in the RAD Video Tools program and click Bink It!. This will create a .BIK file based on your video (see Figure 10-13).
