Same here. No cinematics.
I'm also receiving a "low memory" message every time I start the game, which belive me isn't the case.
But the most annoying thing is the music.
Each track starts with the first few seconds clipped, and once one track has finished, the next starts up only to stop and have the previous track play all over again.
Same problem, please let us know if you find solution!
About the music the problem seems to be a poorly ogg/mp3 edition of the original CD tracks. In a different thread an user offered a link with a different track edition that could solve it making them not clip or jump. But sadly the link seems to be down.
About the low memory message, forget it, t is a legacy windows 98/95 compatibility message but the game is not affected in any way during gameplay
And about the cinematis it was a topic commented time ago. If you are reffering to the little movies where the warlord speaks from time to time, they were cinematics that played during the original campaign, in the original game Reign of Heroes.
Darklords Rising was an standalone title that expanded the original game adding new campaigns and of course the original one. But apparently Darklords Rising does not play the cinematics when you are running the original Reign of Heroes Campaign.
It is not really a bug, but it was in that way originally. But as a note, apparently those movies are physically present into the original campaign folder but they are not used at all,though.
