btw i cant load any levels when i use another/no mod.. is it because i use your levelselect.pak?

There shouldn't be an issue but I'll look into it.

yeah that's due to the pak file, must be an error in the default list selection

As a worst case... just have my mod load my levelselect.pak and rename it. I think the list switch is in the qb.pab not the levelselect.pak.
So I say for now use the regular modded levelselect.pak when not using my mod.

For those reading...
This isn't talking about a public release of "levelselect.pak" so don't be alarmed.

Where is this option?

I've been trying to find some kind of true widescreen solution for this game. I mean I know I can use this launcher to change the res to a technically widescreeen one, but all it's really doing is stretching the normal 4:3 image. I'm wondering if anyone has found/made a true widescreen solution yet?

Do you think there is a way to port the collector's edition features from the ps2 to the pc to make the feature in the launcher complete?

The only features missing are the making of video and the levels. Converting the levels to thaw or between platforms of thaw isn't possible as of right now.

I see.. when it's going to be possible you'll update us right?

If it becomes possible you'll see those levels in thaw.

I'm not too worried about the CE levels, but is there any way to add the making of vid to the PC version? Sorry if this has already been covered.I know you stated it's missing, but wouldn't it be possible to rip it from the PS2 CE, convert the video and add it to PC version?

This launcher rules, and I love THAW, so playing in high-res widescreen along with the two extra secret characters is great. This launcher is one of the best contributions I've seen to anything ever, and it's extremely user friendly. It's just a shame about the missing CE stuff. The making of video would be great to have to make the game feel more "complete." I can't even find the making of video on YouTube, and it has some great interviews in it.

Anyway, thanks for making this launcher and keeping THAW PC feeling fresh. I downloaded this game not long ago and not having widescreen was killing me, so this launcher was a god send. Great work, man.

I don't see this being impossible. I say that assuming the PS2 video format that the video in question is in, is known.
If that is true, the PC video format is .bik or bink if you're unfamiliar. Were RAD game tools exist for creating .bik files.

thanks for making this launcher

You're welcome. I'm glad it's still being used so long after its creation.

Not sure if anyone still looks at this thread, but I believe the download links are dead. If the launcher could be re-uploaded, it'd be much appreciated, I would really like to play in a decent resolution.
