It's a magical bonding experience between people, a timeless ritual that not many are able to do with some of their friends. After all, you've got one friend all the way over in Canada, another stuck in the middle of Belgium, heck even that guy from Swaziland. How on earth will you get them all together to watch your favorite episode of Sonic X? That would cost a lot a king's ransom! And you're hardly Viscount of Saline now are you? You might not even qualify for the title of Minister of Equine Destruction. Well stop cryin, ya big baby! We've got you covered. With Cinema you can watch internet videos with your friends from the comfort of a virtual theater! How ace is that? Settle down to watch the latest action flick, catch up on the latest adventure time together, challenge each other to get through your favorite horror show! First one to leave the room is a chicken! Now you might be asking "Wow where do I sign up?" well please re-button your lapels, it's as easy as downloading a free thing on the internet, BECAUSE IT'S FREE! All you need is the base game of Garry's Mod and you are good to go! No other games required. Not even Half-Life 2: Episode 2.

  • The video made me crack up. As much as i hate these stupid in-game theatre and youtube player things i have to say you did a good job. The video was humorous too!
  • Pixeltail, you guys have a solid resume going into the future with the work of GMT plus this. Good luck for all of you.

  • [QUOTE=Scot;39122325]Can you vote off videos?[/QUOTE] Yes. Private theater owners can also manually skip videos.

  • Could you make it so netflix videos could be played? That would actually be the best.

  • Gamemode is up on workshop and code is on github. :smile: Backgrounds are apparently broken through workshop gamemodes, so if you really want those, get the gamemode from github.

  • It's telling me I'm running an invalid map, but it's the map from the workshop. Can you actually upload the map for me.
  • I can't wait to play this with my friends, I'll play many movies and stuff. We'll have a good time.

  • [QUOTE=suXin;39139504]What's the actual usage or example for 'cinema_allow_url' ?[/QUOTE] I need to explain this a little better later, but if you enable cinema_allow_url, you can request any URL in private theaters by entering cinema_video_request "url" into the console. cinema_allow_url must be enabled on the server.

It works alright with in-game browser, damn I can bring any site to the screen using cinema_video_request (set). [IMG_thumb]http://i.imgur.com/AAARx.jpg[/IMG_thumb] The problem is: we can't play the video because there's no way to click something on the screen, you can scroll, though :v: It's opensource, but I'm no coder to think something out :(

I attempted to implement clicking, but I couldn't figure out a way to simulate clicks in the browser. I believe there would need to be an awesomium bind in order to do so. Otherwise, the browser panel would have to be opened with mouse input enabled. Alternatively, if you can figure out how to make the flash player autoplay, that would be your best bet.

  • Well this is a really nice gamemode, everything works except like the map? I don't see electronic lobby Private Threater scrolling signs and I cannot enter through doros.. I can walk through them :D Anyone else have these problems and how can I solve them? I decompiled the addon map cause I don't know how to use the actual map as an addon.

We have instructions on the website for installing and playing the gamemode, try reading through them and let me know if it resolves your problems.
