Is there a mod that lets you watch a video within the game? I'd like it for all that time spent passively scouting.

dual screens or a tablet would work

Nice idea but I was just TK'ed by an is7 on my team for sitting in a bush on line 1 passive scouting (Prokhorovka) while on low HP just after spotting 2/3 of the enemy crossing the tracks with one of their ARTY to go be CRAPPY CAMPERS on the hill. :(

Well, if you've got Steam then you can just launch the game through that and use the overlay to use its browser, it can be quite handy

But then I lose control of the game, until I press shift tab. That would get me killed.

If you're telling the truth, WG will now suspend players for intentional tks if you send in a ticket with the replay.

So basically you'd want a tiny window of sorts that just sits somewhere on the screen that doesn't interfere with actually playing.. can't say that i've heard of a mod like that. and i don't see why anyone would make one like it other than for like ads or something...if i still want to be able to play then i just put it on my second monitor.. though a bit hard to focus on two things when things pick up

Yes. Starsiege Tribes had a mod like that.

Yep.. had that happen to me and at the end of the game I had a ridiculous amount of spotting damage. I was a VERY useful player that round but some jerk didn't see it.

 

You need a player that can be set to "Stay On Top" or "Top Most" or something like that.


I run 2 screens but never run anything but the game and performance monitoring tools at the same time.

There are a number that stay on top of other forms.. Not sure this will work with the games engine but I'd try VLC.
